Despite the crowd supporting Shapovalov throughout the whole match, Nadal did not blame the loss on them as he understood that there are definitely times like this when the crowd goes against him. Don't compare him with anothers.
"I did my way. I will go and have fun but there is no way I am beating this guy", said the last year's Wimbledon junior champion. "But that's like this". "It's a big revenge, because a year ago around this time I had the same thing actually against Kei. In all terms, I can not be happy about the things that I did." . Probably I played bad, but at the same time playing like this, I could win the match. "I have another week in Cincinnati, and then I have a Grand Slam coming". Ferrer stopped the 19-time major champion's consecutive set win-streak at 32. "I'm a big fan of his, and I'm sure we're going to see a lot of Denis in the future", Federer said of the future star.
"From the baseline, I didn't have enough rhythm". "I have to adjust my game a little bit just because the bounce of the ball is so much higher here than at Wimbledon, and there's wind, which in Wimbledon we didn't have much of".
Polansky earned a stay of execution after holding serve in the sixth game to make it 5-1, but Federer raced into the next round with a comfortable hold, finishing with an emphatic overhead smash. "He was up 5-2". I just kept fighting.
Turning his shoulders into a couple of ruthless forehand rips, the Canadian wild card fended off a pair of break points to level after four games. That was good for me. The first set was quickly wrapped up 6-1, and the second set was only marginally less one sided.
Q. Were you surprised he was able to fight back against all those breakpoints you had on him? "So I think in the end, he helped me a little bit".
