Rafael Nadal meets with the press after his 6-2, 1-6, 7-6(3) victory over Sebastian Korda at the BNP Paribas Open.
“The reason why I have been fighting during all my tennis career or I have the right self-control or I have the right attitude or fighting spirit during my whole tennis career is simple, because I grow with this kind of education. My uncle, my family, never allowed me to break a racquet, never allowed me to say bad words or threw or give up a match.”
“If I went on court and I create a circus or break a racquet or lose my control, my self-control, I will not be playing the next tournament, without a doubt. That’s probably why I have this mentality.”
Rafa speaks with Tennis Channel following his win in the second round of Indian Wells.
Match highlights: Rafa fights back to beat Sebastian Korda at Indian Wells to extend unbeaten run to 16 matches.
