Rafa on playing Tomas:
The only thing that I can say is I won three good matches, and now I have another tough opponent in front that he’s playing great.
He started the season at a very high level. So going to be a very big test for me.
To play Rafa, or any of the great guys, is a special day in tennis. That’s why I’m here and the experience is priceless.
The pair have met 23 times previously with Rafa leading their head-to-head 19-4.
Rafa, a 17-time major champion, is bidding to become the first man in the Open Era – and only the third man in history – to win each of the four Grand Slam championship singles trophies twice. Australians Roy Emerson and Rod Laver are the only players to have won each major on two or more occasions.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
