“I honestly enjoy a lot playing these kind of matches, in front of you guys, I can’t thank you enough. It has been a tough afternoon playing, he [Fritz] is a great player, all the credit to him, he’s been playing great the whole season.

“From my personal side it was not an easy match at all, so I’m just very happy to be in the semi-final.

“I hope to be ready to play it. Nick is a great player on all surfaces but especially on grass, he is having a great grass-court season.

“It’s going to be a big challenge and I’m going to need to be at my 100 per cent to have a chance, and that is what I’m going to try to do.”

After an incredible triumph in the Australian open the Spaniard is hoping to win the Wimbledon again.
