Rafa on playing Stefanos again:
What happened, I know. The solution, I know. The execution is not easy. The theory is always easy, but the execution is much more difficult. Tennis is a simple sport. After a lot of years here, I know what happened last week, and I going to try to do it better tomorrow.
Rafa and Tsitsipas met one week ago Saturday during the Mutua Madrid Open semi-finals, where Tsitsipas upset the five-time champion and gained his first win in their ATP Head2Head series (1-3). Earlier today, Tsitsipas advanced to the semi-finals by walkover when Roger Federer withdrew because of a right leg injury.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
