John McEnroe asked Rafa, how is he unusually consistent at the clay major, "I don't know", Rafael Nadal said in a conversation with John McEnroe on Court Philippe-Chatrier."Just working hard and hold a passion for what I am doing, that's all".
"I know I played a great event a year ago", Nadal said in Paris on Sunday. Then I played the way I should play in the second set, very aggressive.
Last year, he lost a marathon semi-final to Novak Djokovic by dropping the last set 10-8.

"So I just try to be positive, to be intense, and to be passionate about what I am doing".
Federer, who will be 38 in August, played dazzling tennis to reach the semi-final before Nadal and a Parisian gale did for his hopes of a record-extending 21st Grand Slam title.
