Rafael Nadal: ‘I Had Stomach Issues Before The Match’

Rafael Nadal did not play his best tennis against Diego Schwartzman. The Spanish player prevailed in straight sets, 6-4 7-5 6-2, despite dealing with several things. “I had stomach issues before match started”, admitted Nadal in a press conference.

“And I became dehydrated which triggered cramping. First in hand, then forearm. Cramps continued to elbow and even into legs little bit. They started at the end of second set. After salt tablet kicked in, I felt better but knew he needed to finish the match quickly.

Today was very humid day, very heavy day. Well, the body is in good shape, I think.” Schwartzman praised Nadal: “Like a lion in the middle, you know, in the jungle, you know. He’s a fighter. He knows how to play the important moments every single time.

I played eight times, and every important moment he played better than me…” Matteo Berrettini, Nadal’s next opponent, said: “I don’t want to play tennis like — I mean, it’s a job, but I didn’t choose this sport because I — I don’t know.

I said, This is going to be my job. This is going to be my passion. I choose that because I love that, I am loving that. I am loving this sport. I’m trying to enjoy every practice even if it’s bad. I’m trying to learn what I’m doing on the court and off the court.

The last period I was focusing about, you know, children. You know, it’s so nice when they are coming to you — after the warmup today, there was, like, a guy from U.S. He was, like, I think he’s, like, 10. He asked me, How you get here, playing quarterfinals? I was, like, I can talk for, I don’t know, 20 minutes (smiling). But for sure you have to enjoy what you’re doing.”
