by | VIEW 304
Rafael Nadal's problems against Adrian Mannarino last a set at the Australian Open 2022 4th round. After a thirty-point tie break (and in which he is saved even on four occasions) the Spanish champion spreads between the second and third without making any particular changes to the script.
The French tennis player, evidently tried by the marathon with Aslan Karatsev in the third round, moves the score only on three occasions. Nadal then reaches the quarter-finals on the blue Melbourne Park for the fourteenth time in his career (better only Roger Federer) and makes forty-five in the Slams.
Alexander Zverev, beaten by Denis Shapovalov in three sets in the 4th round of the Australian Open 2022, once again misses the chance to move forward in the portion of the board left vacant by the world number one. Wins also for Matteo Berrettini and Gael Monfils.
Ashleigh Barty won in straight sets against Amanda Anisimova. Wins also for Barbora Krejcikova, Jessica Pegula and Madis Keys.
Toni Nadal: "Novak Djokovic has a big problem"
After the decision of the Australian Federal Court regarding the cancellation of his visa, Novak Djokovic returned to his Belgrade and was greeted by hundreds of fans at Nikola Tesla airport.
The Serbian champion, however, has decided not to indulge in the crowd and to return directly to his family. After days of silence, Djokovic appeared again in public, as some photos posted on social media by his fans testify.
The newspaper Informer subsequently made it known that the Belgrade participated in a religious service at the Ruzica church. Commenting on the statements made by the French minister of sport Roxana Maracineanu regarding the bill (already approved, ed) which provides for the introduction of the vaccination pass in France, Toni Nadal spoke about Djokovic's future.
"You can have your ideas on a topic, but at a given moment I think a person should review his position," Uncle Toni told Onda Cero microphones. "It is said that he will not even be able to play Roland Garros. Nole has a big problem right now.
He has no choice but to stop and think and change his beliefs about him. We hope that the pandemic passes as quickly as possible and things return to normal. " Toni Nadal then spoke about Rafael Nadal's chances of winning at the Australian Open.
The Majorcan is the only one of the Big 3 present in Melbourne and could have a great opportunity to overtake Roger Federer and Djokovic in the fight for the Grand Slam primacy. "If there is one thing that Rafa stands out in it is the desire to win as many games as possible.
Sometimes it's okay, sometimes not. Winning Grand Slam tournaments is what drives him to play again, but he has already said that his life would not change if he won one more or less tournament than Roger and Novak. He has already done something incredible by winning 20 Grand Slams. "
