Rafa on playing Khachanov:
He’s a great opponent. He’s a great player. Young, strong, I played against him in Toronto three weeks ago. It was a tough one.
I’m excited to play that match and I hope it will be a good one. I need to play well to try to be through and that’s what I’m looking for.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
