Q. Good afternoon, Rafa. Congratulations on the victory. We were a little bit worried. I don’t know if it was just a feeling, but you were feeling more bad than normal?

Q. During the Australian Open when you were sidelined, if someone said to you that in the warmup clay tournaments you played you would do extremely well and then come here on hard court and beat Roger in straight sets and Berdych and then reach the finals, what would you say to them?

Q. That was some occasion, but perhaps not quite the match we were anticipating. How did you read it?
RAFAEL NADAL: I played great the first set. I played a fantastic first set, in my opinion. The second set was strange. The second set I think Roger didn’t fight as usual. Probably he had some problems and he didn’t feel enough comfortable to keep fighting.

Q. What happened out there? Was he just too good?
RAFAEL NADAL: Oh, c’mon. That’s too simple. In the fifth, yes. Not before, no? In the fifth set he played more than unbelievable. That’s fine.
