128. For insisting on answering this question and his reaction after it :D

Q. The 10th game of the final set where you finally fought through three set points and now you have a breakpoint. It was one of the most spectacular points of the match. From what you saw in your mind, can you take us through that point, how you won that point?

RAFAEL NADAL: So I remember the point, but I can't explain it in English (laughter).

Q. In Spanish then.

RAFAEL NADAL: (Translated from Spanish) No, because if I don't explain, you're going to invent everything afterwards.

(In English.) No, I return a little bit short. He have a big forehand. Return the ball. I stay like outside to the court, two meters down, behind. He send me the dropshot. I arrive very, very, very ‑‑ I arrive a little bit late, but I can arrive. And the volley for him is here and I stay a little, and I stay in the middle, he touch, I can return the ball and I can win the point, no (double peace sign with arms raised) (laughter)!
