RAFAEL NADAL VS FEDERICO DELBONIS PREVIEW
Nadal enters the match knowing that another win would keep him on course to win a 20th Grand Slam title. But reaching the record-equalling mark is not something the Spaniard is thinking about.

He said: “If I am able to reach my highest level, that’s the thing that I have to worry about. If I am able to play at my highest level, normally I am able to produce some good chances. If not, impossible.

He said: “If I am able to reach my highest level, that’s the thing that I have to worry about. If I am able to play at my highest level, normally I am able to produce some good chances. If not, impossible.

“So I don’t care about 20 or 15 or 16. I just care about try to keep going, keep enjoying my tennis career. Is not like 20 is the number that I need to reach. If I reach 20, fantastic. If I reach 21, better. If I reach 19, super happy about all the things that I did in my tennis career, no?

“I am very satisfied about my tennis career because I give it all most of the time. That’s only thing that matters because I don’t think — honestly, something I don’t really think about it. I don’t think in the future being achieving 21 Grand Slams, for example, I’m going to be happier than if I am 19 in 10 years.
