Rafael Nadal progresses to the third round of The Championships and speaks on court after his victory over Ricardas Berankis.
Every day is a challenge. All opponents are difficult and you are playing the best players of the world and in these conditions – I didn’t play much on grass in three years. “It gives me the chance to keep going, so very happy for that. I need to improve. The fourth set was much better – a good level of tennis, the serve worked much better and I was able to play more aggressive with the forehand. In the beginning I was making too many mistakes. I have to keep working, be humble, even when things are not going well.RAFA NADAL
No, no, no paranoia at all. Reality. That’s the thing. A good friend of mine today had to pull out, Roberto Bautista, with another case. When this kind of stuff happens it’s because probably a lot of cases are around. I am not doing many things. Just staying here and staying in the house, not going out at all anymore. That’s part of this challenging world that we are facing the last couple of years. I am not saying that we are not doing the things the proper way because at some point we need to open everything again, we need to be free, have a normal life. It looks like now the COVID is less dangerous in terms of creating very dangerous health problems. At the same time, when you open, these kind of things can happen.Rafa on taking extra care with COVID scare at Wimbledon
