Rafael Nadal’s wishes in Mexico: I hope the coronavirus is controlled and fear stops!

Acapulco (Mexico) / The Spanish Rafael Nadal, second in the world ranking, said that “hopefully the remedy is found” to stop the coronavirus epidemic, but not only because it can affect the Tokyo Olympics, but “for humanity”.

“Hopefully it is controlled, that the remedy is found and this uncertainty is stopped, this psychosis, this fear. It is the most important thing, not only for the Olympic Games, but for humanity, ”he said when asked about the situation created around Tokyo 2020 by the coronavirus.

Nadal, who this morning qualified for the quarterfinals of the Mexican Open, said that the Olympic tennis competition is the “hardest to win” tournament, because there are few opportunities to do so and that he advises those who play it to enjoy it maximum, because it is an experience for the rest of life.

The withdrawal of Maria Sharapova

The Spanish tennis player also referred, in the press conference after his victory over the Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic (6-2 and 7-5), to the withdrawal of the Russian Maria Sharapova and said that “it is a sad day for tennis ”, Because“ a referent of women’s tennis ”goes away.

The Russian tennis player announced her retirement through an article in Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines entitled “Tennis, I say goodbye.” “By giving my life to tennis, tennis gave me a life. I will miss her every day, ”he said in it.

Nadal expressed his respect for the career of the winner of five Grand Slams. “It’s a sad day for tennis, a referent of women’s tennis goes away, but we all end up one day. She has been an example of passion for the sport, ”said world number 2.

The Spanish champion said he was pleased because he experienced an improvement in his game and will face the quarterfinals of the Mexican Tennis Open in better conditions.

“I have improved compared to yesterday, I am happy with the way I played,” Rafa Nadal said at a press conference, after defeating the young Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 6-2, 7-5. (February 27, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
