“Well, I’m not sure [if I’m confident facing Nadal] because if I see the history, I’m 10-1 down,” Schwartzman said after beating Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals. But yeah, I know this week that I can beat him… I was perfect today. I think after two days I’m going to be perfect in [the] semi-final”.
