2017 Barcelona Open SF Rafael Nadal bt. Horacio Zeballos 6/3 6/4
Next opponent - Dominic Thiem
“The conditions were tricky, very windy, and Horacio is a tough opponent who has a style that suits clay. He serves well, creates great angles... He has been feeling better and better,” Nadal said.
"In weeks like this, the one that has more capacity to control the weather conditions, is the one who resists. I am happy to have reached the final. They are not the best conditions for me. And before Zeballos has not been easy. I was out of my place, especially in the first two strokes of each game, which is when I struggled, "said Nadal after his victory.
“It’s not a surprise that Dominic is in the final. He is one of the best in the world, and he loves clay. At the beginning of the tournament, he was already one of the main favourites to be in the final,” Nadal said. “He is a player with a lot of power. He imposes a lot on his shots, and if you let him be comfortable, it’s almost impossible to stop him. It’s going to be a difficult match, the type of match where either you play great or you won’t win.”
