“Rafa is pretty much like the king in Spain. He’s done so much amazing things for the sport. He’s had that many achievements. It’s pretty incredible. It’s going to be fun for me to get out on court and be able to test where I am.Alex De Minaur
I think this is what you play for: to play the biggest guys and the best guys at the top of their level on the biggest stages. You just got to go out there, enjoy, just thrive off the atmosphere.
Alex is an amazing talent, and so young. It’s going to be a fantastic battle. I really believe he has a chance to have an amazing career—hopefully not in two nights, but I wish him the best for the rest of the year.”
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
