'Rafael Nadal is a super competitor who never ever...', says legend

Former world No. 3 Dominic Thiem couldn’t hide his happiness after ending his top-flight losing streak and picking up his first ATP win in 14 months. On Tuesday, Thiem recovered from a set down to beat Emil Ruusuvuori 3-6 6-1 7-6(5) in the first round at Bastad.

Thiem, who suffered a wrist injury at the Mallorca Open last June, was out for nine months before returning to action at the end of March. Prior to Bastad, Thiem was 0-6 at the top tier this year. “It’s a long time,” Thiem said during his on-court interview, according to the ATP website.

“My last victory was in Rome in 2021, it feels like a different world in a way. Many, many things happened. It was difficult, but it was also a very good experience, I think, for life in general. I’m very happy to have won this first victory here today.”

“It was a very difficult game,” Thiem said. “I didn’t have a good start and then I fought very well, but I had a very difficult period with a lot of defeats and few wins, so it was very difficult for me to finish the match.

Although I played pretty well in the second and third sets. I have to control my nerves a bit better, especially when it comes to the end.” Thiem started the match slowly, as Ruusuvuori broke the Austrian twice in the opening set to seal the opener.

Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal emerged victorious from a hard-fought five-set match against Taylor Fritz in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

Nadal is an inspiration to everyone

Rafael Nadal’s incredible performance on center court has garnered massive praise from people around the world.

One such person is cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar. “A super competitor who never gives up despite all adversity. Amazing tennis match last night @RafaelNadal. The way you compete every time you are on the court is just awesome to watch,” Tendulkar wrote.

Nadal struggled with a rib injury throughout the match as he had to take a medical time-out and received treatment on the pitch on numerous occasions. Recently, to the misery of all tennis fans, Nadal had to leave the 2022 Wimbledon Championships due to injury.

However, even though he was kicked out of the tournament, Nadal didn’t lose his naturalness. He left the event following the same customs he has built over the years. Moreover, Nadal was supposed to face off with Australian tennis ace and former world number 13 Nick Kyrgios for a place in the final. It would have been their 10th meeting and a tiebreaker for grass battles.
