I can't believe he beat Gonzalez that easily!
A: I know I will play better tomorrow. Nadal is going to be the favorite. I have no pressure; I'm just going to play my game, go for it, be aggressive and then we'll see. It's going to be my biggest match in a long time so I'm pretty excited.
A: I don't think today's match is going to be the key to my entire career. I have no pressure. If I were playing to defend something, it would be different. I would get nervous. It would be a whole different ball game but now it’s practice.
Awww... he's excited about a match!
Those underlined parts sound just like what I've been ranting about since March.
I'm happy to hear it from Marat himself.
Nadal didn't play particularly stellar (like his usual self) against Baghdatis and Blake this week. If Marat serves well and tries to stay relaxed, he's has a shot. But again, I'm not expecting from him except a good effort. 2 wins is more than I asked for.
The QF is 7am for me... maybe I'll be able to peel myself out of bed to find a livestream but I really need my sleep. This is tough.
Too bad this isn't on TV.
