R. NADAL/J. Monaco 6‑2, 6‑0, 6‑0
Q. Obviously today you were feeling pretty awesome on the court?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, I feel good, no? After the beginning I started, when I had the first break, I started to play very well.
Before I didn’t play fantastic, but it’s true that he started the match playing aggressive, having good shots.
In my opinion, he was unlucky, unlucky in the first set. That’s my feeling, no? 6‑2 was too much.
Later, sure, very happy the way I played. I feel very, very sorry for him. I think he’s playing probably the best tennis of his career, but probably not today after, especially the last set, no, when he start to miss, you know. I saw him a little bit, you know, suffering a little bit on court at the end.
He’s one of my best friends on tour. I feel very sorry for him. But same time, you know, he’s playing great. He’s having fantastic results. He’s No. 14 or 15 in the world today.
I wish him all the best for the rest. If he continues like this, he will have good chances to keep going.
