Nadal shoots down federer as a distraction

“I know Rafael is a big guy and I am sure a little bit intimidating but I have to respect him,” said Mendes. “I said during the break that he wasn’t nervous but I think in the last couple of minutes he has been much more focused. I think it is a good sign that he has confidence and he has to work harder.”
That may not be the case against the veteran Nadal, who beat the American by a narrow, first-set fourth-set margin in his first start since March.
“I think he is a very, very tough competitor and I know what he is capable of doing, but I have to focus on what needs to happen,” added the Spaniard. “I still don’t think he can win a tournament, but as a big French guy I have to give him respect and I think he will continue to do that.”

I think that they are pretty similar players,” said the British coach. “They have a lot of technical match-ups; they can play against the best players on the floor and I don’t know if that has reached that level yet. It’s very hard to win this tour, to have that kind of technical match-up with the best players in the world on your shoes.”
