Rafa about Marin, stats and more

“He’s one of the toughest rivals in the world, he has a great serve and is very aggressive. I will have to play so much better than today if I want to have a shot. It’s a big match. I hope to be prepared for it”

Rafa’s results in Acapulco:

R1: Nadal 6-4 6-3 Zverev
R2: Nadal 6-1 6-1 Lorenzi

Marin’s results in Acapulco:
