Nadal was injured and lost in Wimbledon. “It doesn’t make sense to play if I want to continue my career.”

at Wimbledon,

In the press room, his name appeared on the screens at 19:10 in the evening (20:10 in France) with the announcement of the press conference. The present journalists understood. Nadal will not go again. And twenty minutes later, with a heavy heart, the Mallorcan formulated his package.We talked all day about the decision to make, but it doesn’t make sense to play if I want to continue my career. I have a torn abdomen. If I play, the injury will get worse. I made this decision because I cannot win two more games. Out of respect for myself, I don’t want to play without being as competitive as I want to be and at the same time aggravate my injury. As I have always said, the most important thing for me is health, more than any title, although everyone knows how much effort I have put in to be here.»

This is the second time in his career that the Majorcan has to withdraw from the “Grand Slam” tournaments. He threw down the gauntlet before his 3e turnaround at Roland Garros in 2016. The pain is too strong. In her five-set win against Taylor Fritz on Wednesday, however, she managed to pull it off with near-abandonment. He does not regret that his meeting has come to an end. “The decision was good because I finished the game and won. After the first five or six games, the possibility of quitting lingered in my mind, but I found the option to finish the game. I found a way to change the service movement so as not to aggravate the injury too much. I’m not the type of person to look back after making a decision. You learn from your mistakes, I try not to repeat them, but I didn’t want to give up and leave the court in the middle of the game.“.

On Thursday, his training was not final. I can not serve. It’s not just that I can’t serve at the right speed, it’s that I can’t move normally to serve. He reveals that he has been suffering from abdominal pain for several days.I had stomach problems for a week, but everything was more or less under control. Yesterday (Wednesday) became very painful. The small wound I had a few days ago had grown“. So it’s not the leg that beats the bruised champion, but the belly…

In Australia and Roland Garros, he was declared a winner, so he said goodbye to his dreams of a calendar Grand Slam. And if we don’t have to believe it, he assures. I never thought about a calendar Grand Slam. I was thinking about my daily happiness and my daily work. Roland Garros was very demanding, especially mentally and physically. I did my best to give myself a chance here. I’m in the semi-finals, so I’ve been playing really well the last two days. Especially on Wednesday, at the start of the match, I played at a very, very high level. It makes me feel a little bit worse because I thought playing at this level I would probably have a chance “.

His semi-final opponent Nick Kyrgios is therefore guaranteed to play in his first career Grand Slam final against either Novak Djokovic or Cameron Norrie, who face each other on Friday. Nadal, meanwhile, believes he won’t be cured until “3 or 4 weekswhich should not change its program plans.
