"I was very angry with myself the last time I lost to Nadal. I told myself that I can do better the next time. Also, I know how to beat him because now I know the way he plays. I did not want to say this but I feel that I can do it. Now I know the tactics that he uses much better and it will bring me great joy to get out onto the court, play good tennis and leave with a victory. I want this very much," he said.
Asked whether it was difficult to concentrate in the match with Bautista Agut after the thrilling game against Roger Federer, the 20-year-old Greek said: "It was very hard. Initially it was very difficult to process it and afterwards it was hard to get to sleep. I also had a pain on my leg that kept me awake. The first night was difficult, I slept less than six hours and I was worried about the coming match but the next night I slept much better."
