Une guerre de tranchée

Sa réaction :
“I am very happy to be through in a very tough situation,” Nadal told Brad Gilbert of ESPN following the match. “There were some tough moments during the match, but he played aggressive. There are things to work on for the next round, but the good thing is I have a chance to improve.”

“He’s improving always,” Nadal added, referring to Khachanov. “He’s young. He has everything. He’s a great player. I really see him winning a lot of matches in his tennis career. He does a lot of good things. He has a great future to come. For me personally, of course, it was a physical, demanding match. It was a mentally demanding match. That’s why we practise every day, to play these kind of matches in a great atmosphere in front of an amazing crowd.”

Yeah, just happy about my performance. I hope to keep going that way.”
