After struggling in his quarterfinal against Diego Schwartzman, Nadal is approaching his best form ahead of the final and hopes are high that the Spanish star will emerge victorious. So there is not 10 more chances to keep playing here.
"I played more aggressive". "Gave me time for reflection, to calm my nerves and to see how I needed to change things".
"The only way to beat Rafa on clay is to take risks.to over-achieve you have to over-play and risk more than you feel comfortable doing", Wilander said.
I'm sticking to my guns in saying the world's second-best clay courter is a 36-year-old Swiss who opted not to play in this event, but Thiem's run to the final has cemented his status as the second-best clay court player who competed here.
At least Thiem can boast being the only man to have defeated Nadal on clay in the last two years.
"It's not easy. I've been on court just a couple of minutes ago. It's so good for me, for my team, for my family".
"I'd love to build this up to say Thiem has a real chance and that it will be nip and tuck".

Del Potro had required treatment on a hip problem suffered early in the first set and he visibly wilted in the second, raising his arms in mock celebration when he won a solitary game while already 5-0 behind.
However, Taiwan's Chan Hao-ching and her partner, Yang Zhaoxuan of China, did not fare so well, falling just short of the women's doubles final on Friday after losing to Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya of Japan 6-2, 6-2. The win takes him to his 11th French Open final.
Both players contributed to an entertaining start, but Thiem quickly took control, breaking through in the opening game and then comfortably holding easily.
"It was not a very nice feeling", Thiem told the Court Philippe Chatrier crowd afterward. Cecchinato was accused of match-fixing and suspended for 18 months in 2016, but he appealed, and his punishment was dropped on a technicality.
At long last, Thiem converted his fifth set point when Cecchinato sent a forehand long. After holding there, Nadal broke del Potro to take that set and was on his way, taking 14 of the last 17 games.
