Nadal’s opposition to withdrawing from Wimbledon like Australia in 2011

Nadal’s opposition to withdrawing from Wimbledon like Australia in 2011

As in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, Nadal was injured in the penultimate round of the stadium’s first major tournament 11 years ago. David Ferrer was in a full duel when he suffered tears in the thigh on the left leg. “I must have torn my fibers,” the man from Manacor told his bank. It was therefore his cousin and coach Toni Nadal who invited him to lift his leg and leave the game. But Nadal’s reaction spread around the world and has re-emerged after falling into a similar situation in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon eleven years later. “Toni, I’m in the quarterfinals of Australia and I’m not quitting or shitting.”said the tennis player addressed his nephew in Majorcan. No miracle happened in Australia 11 years ago and he fell to David Ferrer 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 after two hours and 32 minutes of play.

The story has been different at Wimbledon. Nadal has reached the semi-finals, but is waiting to decide whether he will play. The tennis player himself, who ignored his team to focus on their own feelings and resist giving up in the middle of the game, admitted after the game that was not in a position to confirm its participation in the penultimate round of the third major track. His abdominal problems make handling very difficult and it seems very difficult to play with insurance on grass without having the best conditions for service.
