There are already 110 victories and 13 titles at the venue where his effigy is on display, but, without detracting from the dazzling displays that were many more, it is now difficult to find an exhibition like the one that starred yesterday. Rafael Nadal more than four hours ago Novak Djokovik1 in the world and the player who followed him in a thrilling race to finish with the highest number of summits was crowned.

While some indications, backed by the words of Nadal himself, point to his definite decline in a tournament that continues to be ruled by someone, the Spaniard made an almost perfect representation, the result being only the pride and quality of his opponent. Were. Was able to take the dispute on both fronts to moments of extraordinary intensity.

More stable and precise in his motion, the Spaniard scored 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6. won [4] After winning the Australian Open earlier this year, defending the title to become the top candidate to win her fourteenth title and twenty-second Grand Slam next Sunday.

Rarely has Nadal felt the excitement of fans during a match so intense since his tournament debut in 2005. Rafa, Rafa, Rafa’s cry! They are followed by one of the most enthusiastic voices of 14,800 people who, taking advantage of their third break ball, sometimes with improbable bullfighting acoustics, filled Central before taking an early lead. His start was amazing. Djokovic saw no way for him to score points, turning the dropshot not as a weapon, but as a desperate expedient. The stats said the winner of the first set had won 50 of their 58 matches, including 15 of the previous 16, even though not in last year’s semi-finals.

The lack of preparation, affected by physical problems a few weeks ago, was coming from a tough 16 match against Felix Auger-Aliasimus And in times that favored his opponent’s conditions, Nadal started off with enormous success and determination, reminiscent of the 2020 final, played in somewhat comparable atmospheric conditions. Then he went over Djokovic with tremendous force. If he got out 6-0 on that occasion, he could have survived the decider 6-2 this time as well.

The one from Belgrade, who presented himself as champion in Rome, winning 22 consecutive sets since Foro Italico and 11 consecutive victories at Roland Garros, sat in a confused chair that did not come to a solution. Nadla, who turns 36 this Friday, was pure ballet, dancing for Philippe-Chatier with the skills of her best days, finding lines and putting Knoll on permanent alert. There was not a single concession for the Balkans, who tried in vain to defend their luck in the long first game of the second set, resolving the threat of a seventh break.

Forced to do everything, the Belgrade tennis player reacted. Nadal, who was 3–0 up, tried to hang on to the sixth game as if his life depended on it, but Noelle managed to take advantage of his fifth bullet to get three matches into another lengthy brawl. The Spaniard lost four games in a row and stopped bleeding for the equivalent of four. But it was difficult to maintain the high character of his performance. Djokovic took a step forward, more aggressive with the rest, and took advantage of his second ball in the tenth game to equalize a set.

Far from blaming the blow, Nadal went to the locker room and came back like a cyclone, to take the first two games and put a set on track that went off with unexpected ease. It was not a sect, though it might seem. It was a quarterfinal match, but they both knew that there was a lot at stake, that the winner secured several tickets to take the cup.
