Rafael Nadal was asked what he did best in this year's French Open. The Spaniard said: "The best thing is that I won these matches. I lost only one set. I played tennis well. What can I do better? Well, improve this level, which you always need to develop.
You always need to develop your best tennis for the following matches. But otherwise, I believe I'm able to do it now. Am I going to do it or not? I don't know. My feelings are good. I'm going to continue training well.
I'm running, as I need to run, to have hopes, and I'm going to play the matches. If I can continue, well, that's very well. If I can't, it will be more complicated." Asked what it means to him to have lost just one set so far in the event, Nadal replied: "I can't say that I don't care, but in the final analysis, I focus on my daily matches.
And, okay, today I won, tomorrow I'll train to be ready and do things properly, and then I'll play the quarterfinals, which will be difficult. This is my daily life and my reality, so every day when you get to the court, you have the impression you can win or you can lose.
That's what I feel. Now, I'm not going to tell you that these numbers are not very special, but today I can't tell you I'm super happy about them, but I like these figures, but it's not the right time to talk about them or to rejoice about them.
I'm playing. I arrived here at a good time, and I'm going to try and enjoy this good track that I have. That's it."
