"I played more aggressive. I continued the level of intensity that I played after the first stop. And in my opinion, the match changed," Nadal said. "Of course he's a tough opponent, and he's going to always be a tough match. But at the same time, I think after the first rain delay, the match changed a lot because I played more aggressive with high intensity and the things were more on my side."
"I was not opening court with the backhand. I was playing too behind the baseline. He was taking the ball earlier than me," Nadal said. "I had the feeling he had the control of the point too many times to have the chance to be successful. And then I think after that I changed, I increased the intensity, increased the determination on how to play my shots. I won a little bit of court playing closer to the baseline, so the match changed drastically."
"I played already [multiple] days in a row here in the past. I hope to be ready for it. I really believe that I am enough fit and ready to hold," Nadal said. "They are both good servers, [play an] aggressive game from the end of the court, the baseline. And I have to play aggressively. If I play defensively and I don't take intensity, I will be lost."
