“I think I played the right match to go through and I played well. In the beginning Fabio had more mistakes, but I prefer to talk about myself. [I was] aggressive when I had the chance.Tomorrow I play against an opponent who is very dangerous, He’s playing well and he’s having a great season. I had a tough match against him in Indian Wells this year…He’s an aggressive player, big serve, big shots from the baseline, and I have to be playing great if I want to have any chance.”- Rafael Nadal
