TATLONG set lang ang kinailangan ni tennis superstar Rafael Nadal tungo sa French Open Roland Garros 2020 men’s title matapos pabagsakin si Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 Lunes ng madaling araw (Manila time) sa Paris, France.
Dahil sa tagumpay, nasungkit ni Nadal ang kanyang ika-13 French Open title at ika-20th Grand Slam kapantay si Roger Federer.
“First of all congrats to Novak for another great tournament,” wika ni Nadal sa limitadong audience ng Court Philippe-Chatrier dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic.
“Sorry for today, you know. But in Australian [Open] he killed me a couple of times ago. Today was for me. That’s part of the game.”
“After all the things I have been through in my career with injuries, I could not have done it without my family, ” sabi pa ng 34-year-old World No. 2.
“It’s been a very tough year. Winning here means everything to me so it’s not about equalling Roger on 20, for me today it’s just a Roland Garros victory. ” (JAToralba)
