“I did a lot of things well. I started the match very well,” Nadal told the ATP.
“My serve worked very well, especially in the first set.
“But during the second, I was doing things well anyway, so just happy having a match that I suffered in the past against Diego.
“We know each other well, so it’s a positive victory for me.”
“[There] arrived a moment that I think I was playing too aggressive.
“So then I stopped a little bit the game, changing the rhythm of the point more times, and I think that worked well for me.
“[I’m] happy by the way that I played. I did a lot of things well.”
“Today I played very well, and took my chances. I was solid with my serve, and I did a lot of things well, I think.
