Nadal: “My best match in the tournament” | Highlights, Interview

Rafael Nadal has cruised into the last 16 of the US Open after beating Richard Gasquet 6-0 6-1 7-5.

“My best match in the tournament… Easy to say that because the other day was tough. But, yeah, important improvement. But I need to keep going. It’s a good victory for me. Straight sets for the first time. Third set was a challenge. He increased the level. I went through some difficult moments. That’s something that is good, that I went through that and was safe in those moments with positive feelings. Happy to be in the fourth round, without a doubt.”

Match Highlights:

“It’s a little bit bigger than usual but it’s OK, the nose is still there,” Rafa joked after winning his 30th match at night on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

“Night sessions here in New York are the best in the world without a doubt. Playing here is amazing. Three matches already, I increased a little bit the level today so that’s important for me I think. I’m happy for that against a very good friend like Richard. I need to keep playing better and better to have chances to go through.”
