Rafa on playing Taylor:
“He’s playing well, he’s having an amazing year, winning his first Masters 1000 — against me, by the way, in the final. It’s going to be a tough match, but we are in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon so what can I expect?”
Our champ is bidding to complete the third leg of the Grand Slam — winning all four majors in the same season — by winning his third Wimbledon crown and a record-extending 23rd major men’s singles title. He has never before entered The Championships with the Australian Open and Roland Garros trophies in tow.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
