"I knew what I had to do, it was clear to me, but I just wasn't capable of doing it".
Still, Nadal wasn't dwelling on it too much. Should he win the final, it would be his fourth career ATP title and first at the Masters 1000 level.
Nadal has endured a turbulent few weeks after slipping to surprise defeats in both Monte Carlo and Barcelona last month before then being hit by a stomach bug last Sunday.
The second seed in Madrid is unhappy with his tonight's performance, Rafael Nadal believes his game was not up to the mark. I've won a lot over the years on this surface, but this year it hasn't been the case. I'll be able to try to win these tournaments that I was not able to win this year. "I could feel the fatigue and soreness not just in my legs, but everywhere in my body", said Tsitsipas. "Adding variety and being unpredictable was the key today".
Tiafoe was far from embarrassed but he never really lay a glove on the clay king, his sole break point opportunity coming and going in a flash.
"I really liked my fighting spirit", he said. It is one of my dreams and my goals to be consistent with every single tournament that I play.
But Tsitsipas, the Next Gen ATP finals champion, came back stronger in the decider with impressive court coverage and broke Nadal to take a 5-2 lead although he could not immediately serve out for the match. Next to Rafa, Thiem plays with the most spin and rotation on the tour.
Tsitsipas displayed great character to keep things tight and make the top seed work, but Djokovic broke his resistance at 4-4 with a tremendous backhand down the line off the 20-year-old's smash from the baseline, followed by an errant forehand from the Greek. "He's in a pretty good state of his tennis, so it won't be easy".
Tsitsipas hailed Djokovic who will hold all four Slam titles if he goes on to claim a second French Open next month. I wasn't playing my best tennis after Australia so I was looking to regain the momentum this week.
Nadal and Djokovic have five more Masters 1000 titles than Roger Federer, third in the all-time list.
"I feel like this tournament win was very important for my level of confidence because after Australian Open I wasn't playing my best, I wasn't finding the right game and the consistency on the court in Indian Wells, Miami and Monte Carlo", Djokovic said.
Djokovic did not fade for long, immediately jumping back into the spotlight with a HUGE WIN at the 2019 Madrid Open.
