"I was close" - says Schwartzman as he warns Djokovic that Nadal always finds a way to win
It should be a spectacular match between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in the Roland Garros semifinal. It's the final before the final and many expect Nadal to advance to the final once more. The players played in the final last year and Nadal was more than impressive in that match defeating Djokovic in straight sets.
Diego Schwartzman, whom Nadal defeated in the quarterfinal warns Djokovic that Nadal always finds a way. He said:
"I was close. I was playing a little bit better than him. In the end, he's Rafa and he always finds the way."
Schwartzman managed to win the 2nd set against Nadal 6-4 but lost the following two with 4-6 and 0-6. The Argentinian also admitted he would not like to play against Nadal if he could preferring to play against Djokovic:
"I want to play maybe Nole [Djokovic] next time, but not Rafa. For anybody, it's very difficult to play against him. He's feeling very comfortable on the court. Everything is so nice for him on the court. It's very difficult to be close to the baseline sometimes, and he likes that."
