"I continued in a positive way" - Nadal after securing Wimbledon quarterfinals

The Spaniard secured a 6-4, 6-2, 7-6(6) victory against 21st seed Botic van de Zandschulp, securing his spot in the quarter-finals for his third consecutive appearance at SW19.

After reaching his eighth quarter-final at The Championships, he will look to reach his third semi-final in as many tries when he takes on 11th-seeded American Taylor Fritz on Wednesday. Speaking after the match, Nadal concluded more positive developments for him.

"I continued in a positive way. think, until the end [when] I played a bad game at 5-3, [it] had been a very positive match against a difficult opponent. Botic has been improving unbelievably in the last year, so huge congratulations to him this amazing improvement. In a personal way, after all the things that happened the last couple of months, to be able to be in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon after three years without playing here [since 2019], it's amazing for me, so [I'm] very, very happy."

Up next for him is Taylor Fritz, a player who bested Nadal once this year snapping his incredible winning streak to start the year in the Indian Wells final. On that, Nadal said:

"He's playing well, he's having an amazing year, winning his first Masters 1000 — against me, by the way, in the final. It's going to be a tough match, but we are in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon so what can I expect?"
