The ninth victory of Rafa Nadal in the 1000 Masters of Rome

Rome / The Spaniard Rafa Nadal, who won against Serbian Novak Djokovic his ninth crown in the 1000 Masters of Rome on Sunday, said that a very high mark is given by himself by the level shown and that he took “a very important step forward”.

 

 

“The mark is very high, especially when the tournament has been advanced and I’ve been getting better and better. I have done many positive things, on Saturday (against the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas) I played very well and on Sunday I played perhaps even better”, Nadal told EFE at the Foro Italico.

“The truth is that reason to be very happy as a lot of work has been done to get where I am currently. Winning this title is a very important step forward. I’mVery happy with the victory, it is a historic tournament, one of the most important and for me it is a tournament that means a lot”, he added.

Nadal triumphed at Foro Italico for the ninth time, fourteen years after the first time, which he went back to an epic party of more than five hours against the Argentine Guillermo Coria. The Spaniard recognized EFE that was one of the most exciting duels of his career.

“It was a very nice and exciting match, very important for me, one of the most exciting and beautiful of my career without a doubt, and that game what it meant to me was a step further, at that time when I won I didn’t think at all in everything that could happen afterwards”, he explained.

Finally, Nadal informed he will now take a few days off, before thinking about a new assault on Roland Garros.

“It may be, I think I’ll go fishing someday. But hey, it is to be calm, to rest two days. I’ve been here for weeks, right now what I have is the desire to continue playing tennis, competing, enjoying the track”, he said. (May 20, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
