Rafal Nadal : “It is a different Roland Garros. Totally different than we are used to… But for me this year is as special as every one at Roland Garros. I am going to keep trying my best. I am happy to be in the second round [after] a good start and now is the moment to go back to the hotel, have a good practice tomorrow and try to be ready for the second round.”
"The only thing that I can guarantee is I'm going to be here and try my best every single day fighting, and trying to give to the people my best every single day,. In some ways sport helps the people."
"I played quite a solid match when I was serving. I was playing some good points. I did some good forehands, winners down the line. That's a key shot for me. And then I had to play a little bit deeper. I played sometimes too short. But in general terms, that's a normal first match of Roland Garros. Coming with the situation that I am coming, I am happy, honestly. I did the things that I had to do. I didn't expect much more. I didn't expect less, too."
