“It was a very tough match emotionally,” said Nadal, who registered 23 winners to 27 unforced errors. “At the same time, it’s a great victory. It’s important for me to have these kinds of comebacks. I’ve been in these situations more times than I would like this year, so I’m happy to win a match like this.”
