I'm just enjoying the moment.
For Diego Schwartzman, it's simultaneously already the best week of his career - a first Masters 1000 Series semifinal, his first victory over Nadal in ten attempts - and kind of cruel that he will have to best Nadal and Djokovic in the same tournament if he is to win his first Masters 1000 Series title.
"It was my best match ever", Schwartzman said.
"Most of the finals that I reached in the big events on clay I played against Rafa", he said in his on-court interview.
"I think the first set could have gone a different way, as well". Dimitrov is 2-0 lifetime against Shapovalov with both wins coming on hard courts.
Shapovalov had 10 aces to Schwartzman's zero but also double faulted eight times. And it's definitely not the best message out there, especially for the young tennis players looking at me.
Djokovic will bring a 3-0 head-to-head advantage, although their last two matches which were played on the clay courts of Rome and Paris were close affairs.
Earlier in the day, world number one Djokovic felt he was "pushed to the limit" by fellow Serbian Filip Krajinovic as he won 7-6 (9-7) 6-3 to reach the last eight in the tournament for a 14th successive year. "I probably will go back home and then let's see what's going on", the 19-time Grand Slam champion said.

"I did a couple of things well and other things bad".
Also, defending champion Karolina Pliskova defeated Russian qualifier Anna Blinkova 6-4, 6-3 and will next play 11th-seeded Elise Mertens, who eliminated Montenegrin qualifier Danka Kovinic 6-4, 6-4.
In the women's draw, top seed Simona Halep of Romania beat Ukraine's Dayana Yastremska 7-5, 6-4.
Pliskova's 6-2 6-4 triumph means she is on a nine-match winning streak at the Foro Italico, where a year ago she beat Johanna Konta to claim her biggest title on red clay.
Djokovic was denied on two more set points two games later before finally taking the opener after 71 minutes.
For instance, in 2003, the highest-ranked player to enter the Wimbledon quarter-finals was Roger Federer with a ranking of 5 (The top three - Andre Agassi, Lleyton Hewitt, Juan Carlos Ferrero lost before the quarters while fourth-ranked Carlos Moya did not play).
She has since won 13 straight, a run that has taken in titles in Dubai and Prague. After the tour's five-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Romanian returned by raising another trophy in Prague last month.
