Rafael Nadal Highlights, Interview: “This Afternoon was Unbelievable” [Video]
by Tom Gainey | November 27th, 2010, 6:04 pm

What a performance earlier today by Rafael Nadal who showed his mental toughness once again by turning away Andy Murray 76(5), 36, 76(6).

The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals semifinal thriller went 3:11 and it was well worth every minute.

“When you play indoors against the best players of the world, [there] are more specialists than me,” Nadal said. “You can play defensive for moments, but you have to come back to the attack. If you’re not playing really well, it’s impossible.

“Today is the reason why I play tennis,” London favorite Murray said. “I think the match today is how I want to play all the time. So I want to try and I guess build on that for next year. It was a great match to finish the year. But I need to improve because I’m competing with the two best players of all time. So if I want to win these tournaments, I want to win the Grand Slams, I need to get better.”

Nadal and Roger Federer will clash tomorrow for a 22nd time (Nadal leads 14-7) at 12:30pm Eastern.

i am it Says:

Truly impressed with Rafa today.

Murray is right, “So if I want to win these tournaments, I want to win the Grand Slams, I need to get better.”
Not “I want to play like today all the time.”

Someone explain to me. I have difficulty understanding what Murray is trying to say here. If he forgot, it was on Indoor hard court at home that he lost that match played at home, his best surface. Still wants to limit to that excellent but not enough level of his game?
maybe not, maybe he is saying he played great and wants to improve further on that great play so he could get a couple of those match-winning extra points?

andrea Says:

can’t believe after breaking nadal to force the tie break and then going up 3-0, that murray still came out on the losing end.

i thought he was going to take it.

anyway, federer and nadal. can’t complain!

Dory Says:

Nadal is so humble and always speaks from his heart.
