2021 Roland Garros R3 Rafael Nadal bt. Cameron Norrie 6-3 6-3 6-2
Next - Jannik Sinner
Rafa: "Today I had in front of me a player who is having a great season. I went on court knowing that could be a tough match, and for moments it was like this. I'm happy to win in straight sets. I think I did what I had to do. For moments, I played well. I think I played a good first set. Then for moments I need to do things better, but I am confident that I can do it.
I don't think I was returning unbelievable today. I just returned okay. But then I was solid from the baseline to put one more ball in and to make him play."
"You can't expect an easy opponent out there. Jannik is not the best fourth round. Without a doubt, he's a dangerous one. He's young. He's a great player. We know each other well, so let's see. I need to be ready to play at a very high level of tennis to have chances to be in the quarter-finals, and I'm going to fight for it."
Rafa thinks it's been a positive first week: all matches won in straight sets, he's gone thru some difficult moments and overcome them. Next rival will be difficult & requires to step up: play deep & aggressive. Hopes to be ready to up his level as needed. Rafa's had very nice words on Sinner. As a player, Sinner's very aggressive, hits the ball very hard, has great potential, good FH & BH and great serve. As a person, Rafa thinks Sinner's a very well-mannered, respectful & hard worker. They had a very pleasant staying in Adelaide. (Translated by Genny SS)
