Last bit of match and on court interview in Spanish:
Translation from Inés:
Lalo: First, congratulations
Rafa: Thank you very much
Lalo: Yesterday, you told us that the feeling was better than the first day, and today, from the outside, it seems to be better than the second (day)
Rafa: Yes, well, I think I started playing really well the first set, I think that throughout the first set I’ve managed to play with a very high intensity, then the match, in the second set it has become a bit crazy, he has played much more aggressive with his service, trying to shorten the points and it took me a bit but, well, for me to be in the semifinals is a very good news and what I say every day, but I do not want to forget, Thank you all, because for me it’s really a pleasure to play here.
Lalo: And Rafa, solving the match by the fast way. Nico has also done it, it seemed that both of you had rushing today and you (both) are going to find in the semifinals, resting a bit more
Rafa: Well, hurry no, no. Each one does what it can and I do what I can on every point and every match, then there are days that goes better and some worse. Nico is playing at a great level, I think he has not lost a set in all the tournament, he is playing very well, hitting very hard and almost without fails, so , I’ll have to try to play at my best level, I think only like that, I will have a real options to be in the final.
Lalo: The good news is that tomorrow is going to be little better weather because it does not seem Madrid, eh?
Rafa: Hombre, I do not know if it seems Madrid, Mallorca certainly not! (laughing). there is a bit of cold and for us here in the middle is nothing, but for the spectators in the stands, sure is better if the sun comes a bit.
Lalo: Thanks and good luck
