Nadal learned yesterday that, as the fifth favourite, fell in the upper part of the table, the same as Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, with whom it could be measured in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.

Pie. “I’m here to play tennis. My pi is better, that’s why I’m here. If I didn’t believe I can, I wouldn’t be here. I’m ready to work and play the best I can. I was very transparent after the match with Shapovalov. What It happened in Rome, it happens to me often in training.

Picture. “Mentally, it doesn’t affect me. Obviously, we see all these good players. We are in a ‘Grand Slam’, we don’t know what can happen. There is a long way to go before the match with Djokovic in the quarters.”

Favorite. “Am I the favourite? No, not at all. I’m one of the contenders for the title. Today, Friday, I’m not the favourite. But you never know what can happen.”

Roland Garros plays better than anywhere else. “I also won a lot in Barcelona, ​​Monte Carlo and Rome. It probably doesn’t depend on the site. My level on the ground has been high for a while. But I didn’t have the preparation I wanted for this Roland Garros.”

Moment of Swiatek. “She is above the rest. Iga is doing something special. I am happy for her. She is refreshing, natural. She surprised everyone by winning here in 2020. Now she is unstoppable.”
