Rafa on playing Delpo:
It will be a different match [from the one] that we played in Paris a few weeks ago. I will try to hold my service games most of the time. If I want to beat [Nadal], I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands, and try to take all the chances.
Rafa leads the ATP Race To London for a spot at the ATP Finals.
Our champ has a 34-2 match record on the year, which includes historic 11th titles at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters (d. Nishikori), the Barcelona Open (d. Tsitsipas) and at Roland Garros (d. Thiem). He also lifted his eighth Internazionali BNL d’Italia crown (d. Zverev).
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
