Rafael Nadal: "Every match is a chance. I am pleased with the way I am playing and practicing. In Indian Wells, I performed at a really high level and with confidence, and after that I couldn’t give continuity, I was dehydrated."
"The purpose is to play properly, be ready and get higher week after week. Tournaments on clay are favourable [to me]. In the previous I was going pretty good there. I had the perfect successes of my career, however these events are robust since the first round. Roland Garros? It’s distant. Before, there are 4 crucial tournaments. In my profession I have completed nothing however suppose day-by-day. That’s the way to understand important things."
About Spain’s flag-bearer:
"I don’t decide it. If I should do it, I will likely be excited but there are many sportsmen who deserve that recognition. I hope to be the flagbearer, Olympics 2012 had been the toughest withdrawal."
On Novak Djokovic:
"There is much difference between him and the rest. It’s not possible to stop him and it’s important to congratulate him. When you’re excellent and you have nothing that stops you, like injuries, it turns into a deadly combination." (via Daily Sport Mag)
