“I felt, I don’t know,” Nadal said. “At the end of the first set, I start to feel my body very bad, very tired…I was worrying crazy. Then when I was serving for the third, almost throw up…I suffered too much on court for three hours and a half. I was suffering a lot. Too much. You know, was not funny today the way that the match was. Obviously is a very positive thing that finally have the chance to win, but, yeah, I hope to recover myself.”
