Rafa: "I played at I think a very positive level of tennis. Of course it needs to keep improving. I need to keep working on a couple of things that are not coming automatically. But I can't ask for more. It was another great evening for me against another good opponent. Can't complain at all. Much better [than] what I expected."
"The first set it was 6-1, but a super tough beginning of the match. A lot of good points. I'm very happy, it's an important victory for me after such a long time. To start the tournament with these two victories is great news."
"I know Dusan can play great shots. He's a player with a lot of spin, a lot of power in the hand. I needed the consistency. I needed to let him play from the back, not from comfortable positions."
