Nadal talks Euro 2012 semi, Ronaldo
“Cristiano (Ronaldo) is fighting (to be) the best Player of the Year. I had the chance to meet him a few times. He’s great. He’s a winner. We will be in trouble if he has his best day. Portugal has a complete team.
“Being a supporter of Spain, you cannot expect to win the semifinals of the Euro against an easy opponent. Is the same that when I am in the semifinals of Roland Garros. You have a tough opponent in front.
So Spain has one of the toughest opponents possible in front, and hopefully Spain can keep playing the way that we did the last couple of years, almost six years, and be able to be in that final another time.”
