Novak Djokovic

said after the game: "It's very special, probably the best atmosphere and the best game I played in Roland Garros against the biggest opponent. It was a rewarding atmosphere from the first second. It's a game I will remember for a lifetime. It's one of the three greatest games of my career, I'm so happy with the way I played. Defeating Rafa in Roland Garros is the hardest thing there is and it makes this victory even bigger tonight. There are differences between the game in the evening and the game of the day. At first I felt uncomfortable, it was humid and a different environment was created for the player. "To find my pace even though I started badly and fell 5: 0. Despite that, I felt I hit the ball well and I knew I had a good chance of winning."



On the fact that the crowd received special permission to stay until the end of the game despite the closure starting at 11pm, Djokovic said: "Given what we went through four hours before the announcement, we both wanted the crowd to stay. We both won tremendous support. It's a game for which we both keep playing "Tennis. We are not young, but this atmosphere is what inspires us."

Nadal said: "Anything could have happened, I missed a light ball in the tiebreaker of the third set. There were some crazy points. These mistakes can happen, but if you want to win, you can not make such mistakes. That is, well done to Novak. I fought until In the end, I did everything and unfortunately today it was not enough for me. "



"Anyway, life goes on, it's just tennis," the Spaniard added.

"I'm sad I lost of course, but the most important thing is that tomorrow I will already be home with my family and friends. Wimbledon? I still do not know if I will participate in the tournament, I will make a decision about that later."
