Next opponent - Jiri Vesely
After this victory, Rafael Nadal guaranteed that he will remain atop the ATP Rankings.
"Of course, I prefer to be No. 1 than No. 2, [there is] no doubt about this," Nadal said. "But I really didn't come here to hold No. 1. I just came here to try to do the best tournament possible. Of course, it's very positive to be in the second week, winning three matches. That's it. [I'm] just happy the way that I played during the first week."
“It’s a positive match for me, obviously, against a player that is very young, a lot of energy out there,’’ Nadal said. “Some tough moments in the beginning, some tough moments in the third, but in general terms is a very positive result, no, so happy to be through".
“Just happy to be in the fourth round again, is positive news for me, and I’m just excited to keep playing well and to watch some football. What’s going on? England is coming home, or not?’’
“Playing in front of very important people from sport around the world is always a big honour,’’ said Nadal, a close friend of Garcia’s. “We talk the same language and it’s great to have all these people close to me.’’
