He doesn’t know anything about me so I’m not going to listen at all.“That’s the way I play. He’s very slow in between points. The rule in the book says you have to play at the speed of the server. Rafa has the speed every time.“I’m not going to comment on his game. He has got his game and I have got mine.”At the end of the first set, Kyrgios complained to a trainer about feeling ill but said he did not want to retire because he was wary of a possible backlash.He saved four break points in the ninth game of the second set, and a further five in the sixth game of the final set.Nadal took only one of his 10 break point chances in the match.In the women’s draw, American top seed Sloane Stephens suffered a shock 6-3 6-3 defeat by Brazilian qualifier Beatriz Haddad Maia.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
