Commenting on Sisipas, Dr. De said: "His counterattack is commendable and he played very well, especially when facing a break point in the fourth set. There are many risks for him, and he has the motivation to reverse the game, but In the end I think his physical strength was almost exhausted. That was when I took over the game. I took advantage of this opportunity and ended the game in a great way."
Speaking of his old opponent Nadal in the final, Dr. De said: "Rafa has only lost twice in his career at this stadium. Obviously, the situation now is different from when we played in May and June. I I think it would be better for me, the ball won’t jump as high above the shoulders as he usually likes. No matter what the situation, he is still in that position, he is Rafa, he made it to the final, we will again Once in a clay court match, I played five three wins against Roland Garros in the final. I know that feeling."
