Rafael Nadal is in the quarter-final stages of the tournament BNB Paribas Open in Indian Wells for the first time since 2016. He is looking ahead for a 4th title in Indian Wells after winning against 2017 Paris Bercy finalist Filip Krajnovic with score 6:3, 6:4.
The Spanish player lost his serve just once in the match on a sunny and windy Wednesday in California. After the surprising exit of Novak Djokovic, the tournament seed may give us a epic semi-final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard commented about the exit of the No.1 in world.
“The difference between players is not huge. It’s small gaps,” Nadal said about the upsets on Tuesday, including the surprise exit of world No 1 Novak Djokovic. “Is true that for the last 10 years didn’t happen very often.”
