Rafael Nadal is about to start his quest to win his 19th slam in New York. The Spanish legend will face Daniil Medvedev in the final on Sunday when he will be the favorite.
Nadal is a beast. MEDVEDEV
The Russian had great words about the King of Clay during his last press conference to say:
“it’s tough to find words. So many players and so many people found them before me. He’s one of the greatest champions in the history of our sport. He’s just a machine, a beast on the court. The energy he’s showing is just amazing.
To play him in your first Grand Slam final should be, I want to say, a funny thing. It’s not going to be a funny thing, but it’s going to be an amazing thing to live.”
Video of Nadal’s warm-up
There is a video circulating on the web showing Rafa’s incredible warm-up before facing Marin Cilic in the 4th round of the US Open. It’s impossible not to stand in awe watching the Mallorcan getting ready. The intensity and professionalism are just incredible.
Eventually, Nadal defeated Cilic 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-2.
