Athletistic/Tennis. Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, 22-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one, spoke about the upcoming match with Alexander Zverev in the first round of the French Open.

“How did I react to the result of the draw? I was waiting for this. When you’re an unranked player, anything can happen. You have to accept it, because you never know if you will be lucky or not. Of course, on paper, it’s not the best deal. I will play with one of the toughest opponents, who came here after winning the Masters in Rome. So what can I do? This is the lot. I will just try to prepare better,” Nadal said at a press conference.
