Rafael Nadal Not a good start to the year. The Spanish were quickly removed from the australia tomorrow after losing in the second round at the hands of the American mackenzie mcdonald and, as if that were not enough, he also suffered a new injury. Faced with this false start, the German tennis player Boris Becker He left a strong opinion about Rafa’s future.
After spending eight months in prison in the United Kingdom after being convicted of hiding his monetary and real estate assets, Becker was exiled from his country and is now committed to being a commentator on the Eurosport network.
In this context, he was asked about Nadal’s future and left a devastating remark: “If the question is whether Rafa will play until 40 years old, the answer is I think no. The defeat against McDonald was the first step in the withdrawal because this kind of injury takes recovery time and he is old. His tennis days are numbered”.
In any case, Becker also praised Nadal and assured that “He’s not a tennis legend, he’s a sports legend, he’s one of the most important athletes of the last 25 years”. And he closed with a wink for the second Grand Slam of the year: “If he is fit, for me he is still the favorite for Roland Garros”.
