“[I will face] a big chance against a player who has almost an unreturnable serve. [Reilly] is playing well,” Nadal had said. “I need to be very focussed with my serve and then try to be ready to accept [the situation] and be passionate on the return. That is what I am looking for.”
“[I’m] happy. I think I played a very solid match, with not many mistakes, playing the way that I have to,” said Zverev.
“Important victory for me against a great player so happy, semi-finals here in Rome one more time. Confidence for myself and another victory so, against a great player,” he added.
Zverev had beaten Nadal three times consecutively before the quarter-final in Rome.
Alexander Zverev and Rafael Nadal featured in the blockbuster Quarterfinals at the Italian Open as a rematch of last week’s Madrid Open Finals last week. The German players will be looking for a fourth consecutive victory over the nine-time Rome champion.
In another big match coming up, Novak Djokovic will face off Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Italian Open quarterfinals on Friday.
