“It was a good start today,” Nadal said.
“[I’m] happy with that victory and happy because it was around one hour, and that’s important for what’s coming up.”
“It’s a tough one. He’s a great player, very dangerous. He hits the ball very strong.
“He already won two great matches here so it’s going to be a big challenge, but it’s a good test for me and I’m excited to play this afternoon.”
