Rafa on playing Alex:

He’s a great player. He’s playing super fast, with a very high intensity. He has improved his serve. It will be another very tough match and I will have to play very well to have any chance.



  1. Not an easy challenge as Alex de Minaur is very quick and can hit balls from any angle. Their last match was close, so Rafa will have to serve much better.
