Never write Rafael Nadal. Start. Young American Sebastian Korda knows it now, too.
The son of former Australian Open champion Peter Korda got an egg after a stunt. After a smooth victory in the set 2 (6-1), he led 5-2 in the decisive match.
Nadal stood with his back against the wall in a turbulent yard. Then the Spanish bull at its best.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion managed to break free and break.
After nearly 2.5 hours of tennis, he walked off the court as the winner. The American public eats from his hand.
Nadal did not lose in 2022, but after his 16th win this year, he indicated he should take it easy: “Everyone knows I have problems with my left foot. I have to protect it by finding the right balance in my program. If I do too much, I may It will be the end for me.” Nadal was out for 4 months last year after foot surgery.
“While I love playing in Miami and many other places, I have to make choices and listen to my body. I feel like after Indian Wells I need some rest and time to prepare for the claycourt season. With Roland Garros reaching its peak, Nadal was already 13 times better.
This year he won prep tournaments in Melbourne, Australian Open and Acapulco.
