Rafael Nadal apologizes to his opponent after a heated exchange in the third round of Wimbledon 2022
second plant Nadal, the champion in 2008 and 2010, won 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 to go to the fourth round for the tenth time.
So After a heated exchange in the match’s dying moments on Saturday, Rafael Nadal apologized to Lorenzo Sonego, his beaten Wimbledon opponent. Rafael Nadal, the second seed and the winner in 2008 and 2010 advanced to the fourth round for the tenth time with a victory of 6-1, 6-2, 6-4. The 36-year-old needed consecutive four-set victories to go to the third round, and Sonego, who advanced to the fourth round the previous year, was anticipated to test him.
However, Rafael Nadal did not encounter a break point until he erred by dropping serve in the eighth game of the third set. Maybe as a result of a pause in play to close the Centre Court roof, which may have distracted him.
He swiftly made a comeback and won the game.
However, the ruckus the Italian was creating on the court seemed to enrage Rafael Nadal.
The two then engaged in another lengthy conversation before shaking hands, and he even brought Sonego to the net to express his disapproval.
“I must admit that I was mistaken. It’s best not to call him online. I’m sorry about that. My mistake in that. No problem. I recognize that,” said Rafael Nadal.
“And I discussed it with him in the locker room, and it remains there. I can only confirm that I saw him in person.
“Never once did I mean to disturb him. I only wanted to mention one thing that bothered me about what I believe he was doing at the time.
There were some problems there, but that’s all.
For the first time since Rod Laver completed the Grand Slam in 1969, Rafael Nadal has already won the French Open and Australian Open in 2022.
In the finals, Rafael Nadal claimed, “This was certainly without a doubt my best match here, against the toughest guy I played.”
I’m overjoyed that I was able to boost my level.
So to advance to the quarterfinals, Rafael Nadal must first defeat the 21st-seeded Biotic van de Zandschulp of the Netherlands.
So with a victory over French veteran Richard Gasquet, whom the 26-year-old Van de Zandschulp defeated 7-5, 2-6, 7-6 (9/7), and 6-1, he advanced to the round of 16 at the All England Club for the first time.
Last month, on his way to winning the French Open for the 14th time, Rafael Nadaleasily overcame the Dutch star in straight sets.
