The Majorcan makes self-criticism and pressure at Roland Garros is removed. He surpassed this Monday to Ljubicic and is already in the quarterfinals of the tournament. It will be measured to Robin Soderling, his executioner in the second round in 2009. Rafael Nadal tried to release this Monday, once again, the pressure of the media at Roland Garros and said that at the moment is in quarter-final and happy, and has no obligation to win this tournament six times. Win this tournament again? I have no confidence, and I am not playing too well to win this tournament today, that’s the truth, admitted Nadal.
You have to be realistic, and today I have not played it sufficiently well to win this tournament, he added. But I’ve already won five times before and I have no obligation to win six. I’ll try again, since then. But I’m not a genius, and I cannot predict the future, said Nadal. The next round will be a match crucial for me, because if I win it will be a very important victory, and if I do it is because I am playing well. If not, I am coaching me on grass the next day, he said.
Nadal, however, drew positive conclusions from today’s game. I have improved my position on the track and I’ve hit with more conviction, he said. In recent years I’ve played fantastic from bathrooms. This year the second party was positive and today at times was good, with good level. But I have to get me the nerves for the next round, because it is the most important match of the tournament, he added. It is true that I am not playing well, but it is a very good signal that is in the quarterfinals playing poorly. My requirement is very large. The problem is that no you can always play well and I’ve been seven years between the first two, he said.
