Why is Rafael Nadal trending today ?
Rafael Nadal reached the ATP Finals last four by beating 2019 champion Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets.
“I was playing, I think, a great level of tennis for almost two sets,” said Nadal, who hit 32 winners and made just 13 unforced errors.
“The score was close, but in terms of feeling I felt that I was playing better than him. Then the situation changed. He won that game and then I was starting to suffer a little bit more with my serve.
“But it’s always a good feeling when you are playing well and you’re playing against the best players of the world. You know you’re going to be in a tough fight. That’s what happened tonight. I was able to find a way to win. Very happy.”
