I love looking at Rafael Nadal, says promising junior player

Facundo Diaz Acosta is 17-year-old and he has the quality to get far in the tennis tournaments in the future. Through an amazing game, in a junior tennis tournament in Buenos Aires he defeated Chun Hsin Tseng 6-2 6-4. 'I do not know if I played a perfect match, but I delivered a good tennis.

I felt very solid from the beginning to the end. I delivered the game plan I had and luckily the result was there', he told Info Bae. Acosta was also helped by two Argentinean legends like Gabriela Sabatini and David Nalbandian: 'It's incredible that he and Gaby Sabatini are with us.

It's an additional motivation. He helped me a lot to keep being focused on points and not getting distracted because we are not used to play in front of so many people.' The Argentina Tennis Association President Agustin Calleri was watching the match on the grounds, but Acosta was still focused on achieving the win: 'I did not see him, I was thinking on point by point during the match.

I think the worst we could do is looking outside, because you can get distracted and two or three games and the set can get away.' He finally revealed who is his favorite tennis player: 'I love looking at Rafa. I do not know if I have his style, but he is lefty and he tries to play points with the forehand, which is what I am working on.

The intensity, his focus and his game are the things I admire the most from him', Acosta concluded. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
