Great game at Roland Garros! From the first game Rafael Nadal and Diego Schwartzman showed a superlative level. The Mallorcan with his serve had to battle 14 minutes to be able to take it.
The Peque went out with everything to try to bother the Spanish and well he did. With acceleration in his strokes, intensity in the movements and running all as is his trademark, he had two break opportunities.
There were very long points and with more than 25 shots, a true example of how even and hard the game started.
However, Nadal, with all his experience, was able to cope with that excellent level of the Argentine and sheer power and determination managed to get 1-0 on his third chance.
