Rafael Nadal: 'Roger Federer is probably the best player ever on grass'

Rafael Nadal defeated Sam Querrey in straight sets to reach the Wimbledon semifinals. After the match, the Spanish player said: “[It's] a great feeling to be back in the semi-finals, be able to be playing at this level of tennis...

[I'm] very happy the way that we managed to be in that round. Now to play against Roger always is a unique situation. Excited to be back on this court against him after 11 years. Means a lot for me and probably for him, too.

Excited about this match, excited about this opportunity to be again in that round against him. Always I say the same: of course, the opportunities to play against each other every time are less, but we still here. After tomorrow we going to have another chance.

I think I am playing with a very high intensity, playing aggressive, serving well and returning very well. Today was a big, big challenge against a server like Sam. [I broke] him six times, which is a lot against a player like him...

I am very, very happy with the way I am playing”. On his upcoming match against Roger Federer, Nadal concluded: “I just expect to play against probably the best player of the history in this surface and know that I have to play my best if I want to have chances to try to be in that final."
