I think that I’m confident in myself. If I’m not able to execute my game plan, it’s going to be complicated. But if I play well, and I have played well up to now, no, I’ve got all my chances. But it’s always a match and anything can happen.
Domi on playing Rafa:
I think it’s really important that I go into the match with the belief to win. That’s the most important thing…. I (have) had some very good matches in the past against him on clay, and I also beat him on clay already.
Of course it’s big dream for me to win [the] match tomorrow, to win this title. But I also have in my head that [maybe] it’s not happening tomorrow–which can happen easy because of the opponent [who] is on the other side of the net. So I think I don’t make (for) myself too much pressure.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
