IS THIS GAME, SET AND MATCH FOR NADAL? IS NOVAK THE 'CONTROL GROUP' FOR TENNIS?

“I couldn't rest. My heart rate was much higher than usual, without playing any long runs. That is to say, during the break, I felt that I was breathing fast and it did not allow me to think clearly, nor to act logically on what my usual standards are. It was a consequence of doing things too badly for a good game time.

A very complicated, not to say catastrophic, start to the match against Fabio Fognini in the second round of the US Open , Rafael Nadal panicked a bit.


He confided in his anxiety at a press conference, reported precisely by the Spanish media AS .


NADAL: “I couldn't rest. My heart rate was much higher than usual, without playing any long runs. That is to say, during the break, I felt that I was breathing fast and it did not allow me to think clearly, nor to act logically on what my usual standards are. It was a consequence of doing things too badly for a good game time. Many things can explain this.


We have had a difficult few months because of things that we have tried to manage as best we can.


I am to still be alive and to be able to give myself a chance. These are things that happen in life, injuries or other things, and in the end they are sometimes difficult to deal with.


I am happy, I still have hope and confidence. The only way to advance is to win the matches, that's what I did.


I hope I will fight well and give myself chances. Even if things are not going very well, I don't give up on my chances because in sport you never know, things change very quickly.


What I have to do is what I have always done: be ready”.


The Majorcan will face an old acquaintance for a place in the round of 16: a certain Richard Gasquet, who defeated Miomir Kecmanovic in four sets.

of course Nadal has been jabbed, and he has been preaching about his "good" friend B. Gates.

I guess he has been used and tossed out by "the friend". Now he has to admit...he has this issues because of "his friends" jab...will he ever do it?
