“We know we will come up against the best CSKA”, said the Whites' player.
Rudy Fernandez spoke to the club's media days before Real Madrid dispute the Final Four in Vitoria. The Whites' forward said: "The most important thing is to be ourselves. We have played in many Final Fours: we have won and we have lost, but we have always learned from each of them. Now we have to go to Vitoria to enjoy and try to play our best basketball, which is what we know how to do and what we have done in recent years".
Semifinal repeat
"Basketball throws these things up and CSKA have the opportunity to make up for their last defeat. We know we will come up against the best CSKA and we have to be prepared for it. They are one of the best teams in Europe and we'll have to defend very well to win the game. Those players with responsibility in attack must try to defend as well as possible".
The team
"I always try to give my best in every tournament, in every game. I try to be in good shape and I'm happy with how things are going. But the important thing is the team, to help them as much as possible and to play another Final Four in Spain, in Vitoria, and that's why we're happy to be here. We have the same desire in each of the Final Fours and we hope to be able to enjoy this type of thing with our teammates, we know how difficult it is to get there".
Message to the fans
"Madridistas, the time has come, another Final Four. We hope to retain the title with your help in Vitoria and with the help of those who cannot be there, so Hala Madrid!".
