RAFAEL NADAL: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. How old is him?
Q. He's 26.
RAFAEL NADAL: He didn't in the past, but you never know what's going on in the future. The thing is today he played great. He played special.
Sure, if he played the way he played the fifth set, you can win against everybody. But I think everybody who follows tennis knows that that's very difficult to do every day.
But if he's able to do it this time, he will have his chance. I wish him all the best.
Sounds like Nadal gave him the credit he deserved.
You didn't read what came out of Nadal's mouth later when he was finally out of his shock.
