Nadal concerned about spectators at French Open

Nadal concerned about spectators at French Open

Djokovic, who had already apologised for the incident, said that he called on the lineswoman to check on her health since the incident at Flushing Meadows.

Having said all of that, it might not be far-fetched to surmise that tennis pundits and fans alike, including yours truly, might still not be jumping to anoint Thiem or Zverev as anyone's heir apparent just yet, given how Federer and Rafa both skipped this year's US Open and Djokovic's disqualification from the tournament.

Djokovic said: "Of course it was a shock to finish the US Open the way things finished for me".

World number two Rafael Nadal once again criticised his rival Novak Djokovic for plans to establish a new Professional Tennis Players' Association.

In an all-Spanish showdown, Nadal is gunning for a flawless 6-0 ATP Head2Head record when he meets the World No. 18 in the FedEx ATP Rankings in the second round. "There is no public, we are in a bubble, we can not enjoy the city", said Nadal, who will play his first competitive match since his win in Acapulco at the end of February. "I'm hoping for the best", said the 17-times Grand Slam victor.

"How I feel? Well".

Djokovic's NY default was his first defeat in 2020.

They claim that this small-sized biological molecule can completely neutralize the SARS-Cov-2 virus that causes Covid-19. It helps in making a drug, namely "Ab8", which may prove helpful as a therapeutic and prophylactic against SARS-CoV-2.

Nadal agreed all tennis players are aware of the rules and if you lose "self-control" a default can be the outcome. Djokovic, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, was defaulted from his round-of-16 clash after hitting the lines women with the ball.

"Rafa obviously chose to stay on clay and practise". I don't think I will ever forget about it.

"I mean, surely that gives him more advantage, but even if he didn't practice for that long on clay, he would still be the number one favourite in Roland Garros or any other clay tournament because he's Rafa, you know". Trying to be the best version of myself on and off court. Apart from the excellence derived from experience, one key element that has always deterred the younger group of players from claiming the tennis throne is possibly their trouble with fitness. I obviously went through ups and downs in my career in managing to control my emotions more or less but you're alone out there, it's a lot of intensity, a lot of pressure and you have to deal with all of that so sometimes situations like this happen.

I can not promise or can not guarantee that I will never ever do anything similar to that in my life.

"I'm going to try my best, obviously, but anything is possible in life". I'm excited about going back to competition, without big expectations. "You have to move on".

The number one seed had also flashed his temper two games prior when he fired a ball at an advertising board, after failing to convert three set points. However, unseeded Marin Cilic advanced to a stand-out match against No6 seed David Goffin.
