From Inés: on court interview – love all the laughs at the beginning:
Here is her translation:
Congratulations Rafa, I was saying that you are finding every time the better way of perfection, playing in clay. It has been, and we have seen points, super spectaculars
Rafa: Well thank you very much, first, don’t use the formal “you” when you are talking to me (giggling)… … ..
I have very bad habit
Rafa: Well, the truth I think there have been many exciting points, buffff many good points … …it is that I hear my voice and I find very hard to talk
No, easy, little by little, slowly, it will fix the sound issue .. Do you hear better?
Rafa: Yes, I hear you perfect
The precious points, the spectaculars …
Rafa: I’ve played pretty well, the drive has worked well at times and really, compared of how I was training, each time I’m feeling better on the court These conditions of play by night to play by day changes completely, it is much slower and well, that it gives you more time to develop the plays
It asks you a question Tomas Carbonell
Firstly congratulations for the match and second, what differences you find between the court of Rome and the court of MC, there are some important differences or there are very similar?
Rafa: No, there are many differences, here during the day, the ball is much more crazy, the ball bounce a lot more and is more difficult to control it and during the night, the conditions change completely
Rafa you hear me bad, right?
Rafa: It is that when I’m talking , I’m listening to my voice and it’s hard .. , No, no it’s not that I hear bad
It’s that you’re listening to yourself
Rafa: It’s just that when I speak, I hear my voice and I can hardly
Well Rafa, I do not want to bother you, thanks to be with us, live, congratulations also from Galo Blanco who is with us and tomorrow Wawrinka. Only a secret Rafa, did you see yesterday The Barça in the hotel?
Yes, I saw it in the hotel, the truth that the approach of Inter was very slacker and I think that the victory was very unfair
Rafa Thanks and see you tomorrow
Rafa: And one more thing please, I just wanted to give a message of support to the entire family of Tolo, the Majorca climber has died in the Annapurna, things happen and condolences to the family and much encouragement
Thank you Rafa, a hug for you and the Calafat’s family
