"I did a lot of things well", said Nadal, adding that despite his lopsided record over Schwartzman he considered the Argentine a formidable opponent, citing tough matches against him at the Australian Open and Roland Garros.

"When I hit a good return, I was wondering why this didn't happen in singles", he said. I'm really happy with myself.
