The countdown continues for the Laver Cup, a competition to be held in London from 23 to 25 September: the tennis event, which pits the Europe team against the Rest of the world, was able to bring together the Fab 4. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray will play together, wear the same blue jersey and try to defend the flag of the team led by Bjorn Borg.
Less than a month after the tournament, Rafael Nadal expressed his wonderful thoughts on the return of the Swiss champion: “We are thrilled to see him return to the field. I hope he is well enough to play. We haven’t seen him in a long time, so I hope he can come back.
The most important thing is that he is healthy and happy. If so, that he’s back on the pitch is incredible news. We can only thank Roger for everything he has done. I’m confident we’ll see some more around here. I can’t wait to compete with him,” he said during the press conference directly from the US Open.
The message to Serena Williams
Rafa also expressed other important words about Serena Williams’ latest Grand Slam tournament, which will then officially bid farewell to tennis: “Too bad he retires from a sporting point of view.
On the other hand, she deserves all the things she has achieved, because she has worked for a long time with determination, dedication and discipline. I hope he is able to continue this sport somehow, because it would be good for tennis.
She is a legend.” The Iberian also made some considerations on the current training methods after the injury: “I am being very careful with the serve. I’ve been training for a couple of weeks with guys who help me a lot.
I’ve played several sets over the past five days and that helps. I didn’t arrive in Cincinnati with the best preparation. From my point of view, I trained well.”
