“Of course, when I was younger I was able to run everywhere, now I need to have better shots,”

“My backhand is an important shot for me. When I’m playing well, the court opens up for me, I can produce angles with the forehand. When the backhand is working well, I play much better.”

“No, not under control, honestly. No, I keep doing the things that I can. If you see my motion on the server is different than what I would like,” added Nadal, who still struck seven aces and landed 76 % of first deliveries. “But I am trying to find solutions every day. I just keep fighting to find a solution.  

“We are doing everything possible to try to be better. So still alive, still hope to be better and to try to be competitive. Let’s see. Gonna be a good test against Norrie.”
