Former World No. 3 David Ferrer says like all other athletes, the current shutdown and uncertainty over the resumption of the tennis circuit is not easy for Rafael Nadal but adds that the Spaniard has the common sense and sensitivity to deal with the situation.

 

 
Speaking to Radio Marca, Ferrer says, “I imagine that waiting and uncertainty is not easy at all and even less for Rafa who is very competitive, however, if someone has common sense and sensitivity for this situation it is Rafa Nadal.

Within those who are affected we are privileged, we cannot complain. ” The Spaniard also celebrated his birthday on April 2nd and says it was a different kind of celebration. “It is a different day because we are at home, because the situation we live in is very complicated and very hard.

You always have close people who have infected loved ones and it is difficult to carry but you have to see the good side, I I can be with my family and we are healthy. ” Ferrer adds that he finds it difficult for the season to resume in 2020.

“I see it difficult for the season to start this year. Tennis is a global sport and although they are recovering in some countries it will be worse in others. I see it as very difficult to have the situation 100% controlled.

Also, when all this is over there will be a moment of adaptation, it will not be everything as before. ” Finally, the Spaniard adds that the cancelation of so many tennis tournaments, including Wimbledon, is hard but the important thing is that it will return in 2021.

“I know it is very hard and it is not easy because it accepts everyone but if there is no Wimbledon this year there will be next year, the important thing is that this happens.”

Only two players have managed to defeat Rafael Nadal on the Parisian clay of the Roland Garros. However, only Novak Djokovic did the impossible of dethroning the ‘King of Clay’ in straight sets at the French Open.

The Serbian outclassed Nadal with a 7-5, 6-3, 6-1 victory in the quarterfinals of the 2015 French Open. He became only the second man after Robin Soderling to defeat Nadal in Paris.

“It felt dominant” – Andy Roddick on the defeat of Rafael Nadal
The 2015 Roland Garros was certainly one of the matches from when the best rivalry of tennis started to tip dramatically in favor of Djokovic. Former World No.1 Andy Roddick also felt the change of the guard after watching the match.

“Revisionist history is easy. It’s easy for me to sit here and say I wasn’t that surprised,” Roddick said in an interview with Tennis Channel.

“At the time I was in. What shocked me was the way it went down. If I remember the scoreboard correctly, it was like a 5, 3, and 1. I had never in my life seen Rafa just go away in a match like he did against Novak. I’m going, oh no, is there a changing of the guard a little bit here?” he added.

Roddick also revealed that it felt dominant. “I never in my life would expect Rafa Nadal to be dominated in the best of 5 match at a Grand Slam,” he said.

Roddick explained that it was impressive undoubtedly. Rafa had lost a couple of matches going in, which was a bit of a rarity. However, it was still a shocker for the American and he felt like this was Novak’s time.

With this victory, Djokovic also ended Nadal’s 39 match winning streak at the French Open. With Nadal still dominating the Parisian Slam, it is possible that Novak might end up being the only player to defeat the Mallorcan in straight sets at the Roland Garros. It will be interesting to see if Djokovic can again defeat Nadal at the Clay Slam.
