Physically I notice that I have played so many games but this is what I want to feel, to be like this and to play finals. I work to be in these situations, ”Garbiñe said after the game against Mertens.

I knew I was not going to win in one shot, ”Garbiñe assumed that he will play his third final of the year.

I have a great team, let’s not forget that, I don’t do it alone. It is a group that is working very well, they are helping me a lot in making me physically stronger. I feel that I am in a moment of balance, “he said.

I have succeeded. I want to do it again, ”Garbiñe underlined.
