2016 Cincinnati Masters R2 Rafael Nadal def. Pablo Cuevas 6/1 7/6(4)
“I think I played well,” Nadal said. “I think I played a good match against a tough opponent in the first round for me for sure.
“After coming from Rio and after the marathon that I had, it's a very important victory for me. So I’m very happy.”
The Spaniard later acknowledged the stabilising influence his support team had had through his many ups and downs. “Well, I always had a team spirit,” he said.
“I always enjoyed playing more for a team than just myself. Even the same when I was a kid playing football.
“So always with my team I always had a great relationship. When we are on court it's normal you have the feeling with them.”
