Rafa on playing Norrie:
“Every week he’s making good results, winning against very good players. I know it is going to be a tough one. I need to be ready to play my best. I know he has a style of game that is not easy to play against. I need to play well.”
Norrie on playing Rafa:
“Obviously I’m going to be the underdog going in there, so no pressure on me. I’ll go out and see if I can execute my game and frustrate him. It’s another wonderful experience for me playing him, again, third round of a Slam, especially where he’s been very dominant.”
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
