In a press conference Rafael Nadal said: "I have another tough opponent, Tsonga. Every match is tough.
My draw is a tough one. It's no time to relax at all. It's just time to enjoy today because it was a good victory. Win two tie-breaks against [Kyrgios] is difficult." The Spaniard had defeated Yuichi Sugita in the first round in straight sets. We will see how he will do against Tsonga, who he has beaten eight times out of 12.
