In an interview with La Nacion, Guido Pella was asked who is the best among Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Argentinean player replied: "They are unique. But I think you say Federer and it's like tennis, so I put Roger a bit above."
On Milos Raonic, who he beat in five sets on Monday, Pella said: "I knew that he had problems in the past, but I didn't know if now he has problems now. But, yeah, of course. But my game is like this. I have to play long and long matches.
That's the way that it is. I always try to fight every ball. When I was two sets down, that was a very tough moment for me because he was playing really, really good. But after the third set, I think I started to play much better.
And, yeah, and like I said, I tried to fight every ball. When I won the fourth set, it was not easier for me, but in a few sets, I felt he was starting to be a little bit down in his game, slower and so I tried to be more focused than ever.
I think that worked. Of course, at the beginning of the match -- I never played against him, so I didn't know -- I knew that he has a massive serve, but I knew that if I play a long match, of course, my game is going to be more, improve my game on his serve.
I think after the third set I started to return much better, and I think he felt it. I think when I lost the third match point I wanted to cry. He was serving so good those points that I couldn't do anything. So it was a very tough moment for me, but I think I kept playing, you know. Keep fighting every ball. Then in the last match point, I don't know, he missed that ball, and I won."
