First of all the credit to Francisco, I think he started to play great and was a very tough opponent.
“Three years without being here on this amazing surface, it is amazing to be back and I can’t thank [people] enough for the support.
“It is not a surface that we play very often especially in my case in the last three years I didn’t put any foot on the grass. Every day is a test and I am at the beginning of the tournament and the difficult circumstances [under which] I arrived here.
“When you play well in Roland Garros it’s not much time between. I used to remember all the beautiful days I finished the final in Roland Garros and was playing on the grass at Queens but my body is not allowing me.”
“For me, the most important thing is that I am in Wimbledon 2022 and I won the first match.”
“And I’m happy for that, without a doubt.”Rafael Nadal quotes
“I’m going to be talking about my foot today and not anymore if it’s fine for you guys,” he said with a slightly wary look on Saturday.
“If not, we forget the most important thing: that is tennis. We cannot be talking about my foot every single day.”
“All credit to Fran. He started to play great and he has been a very tough opponent,” Nadal said.
“Grass is not a surface we play very often and especially in my case, for different reasons, the last three years I didn’t put a foot on the grass.
“It always takes a while – this has been my first match and every day is a test and today has been one of those important tests.
“At the beginning of the tournament, especially under the circumstances that I arrived here, the victory is the most important thing because that gives me the chance to practice tomorrow again and to have another match in two days.Rafael Nadal full interview after R1 win Wimbledon 2022
