2019 Coupe Rogers R2 Rafael Nadal bt. Daniel Evans 7/6(6) 6/4
Next opponent - Guido Pella
"Daniel is a player that combines an aggressive game with good hands. He's able to read the game very well, so he knows how to play tennis in terms of tactics."
"It was a tough first set. Then in the second, I was able to take advantage at the beginning, but then he broke me back. It was so important, that next game again to have the break."
"Always is tough, first match on hard court after such a long time. After Wimbledon, the mind always goes down a little bit because I have been playing a long clay-court season, then grass, so you didn't relax. Then when you finish Wimbledon, it's like your body loses a little bit of that tension, so it needs little bit of time to recover."
"Today, as I said before, the main thing is win. I know with victories that other things should be coming slowly. I have been playing and practising more or less well. Now is the moment to compete. Today I competed enough well to be through. Tomorrow is another challenge."
