prices on sportsbook suggest bets voided if match not completed as you can back fritz at 1.90 on sportsbook yet he is 1.54 on exchange........free money does not generally exist hence my assumption

no chance yesterday indeed.

in the AO final against Stan he was ill, you can play on without doing longterm harm. In the Rotterdam final I don't recall what the injury was but he lost 0-6 in the final set against Murray.

At the end of the day, I think he'll want to finish the match out of respect for TF and Larry Elison, but not at the expense of the upcoming months.

Report Journeyman March 21, 2022 8:53 PM GMT
These are the comments that have made this a discussed topic today

“It’s tough for me to breathe. When I try to breathe, it’s painful and it’s very uncomfortable,” Nadal said. ”When I’m breathing, when I’m moving it’s like a needle all the time inside here. I get dizzy a little bit because it’s painful.

“It’s a kind of pain that limits me a lot. It’s not only about pain, I don’t feel very well because it affects my breathing.

“Honestly I am sad because of the way I was not able to compete. The thing that worries me now, it’s about what’s going on there, what I have to do now to recover and how long it’s going to take.”


Source - the Express

I'm generally in the Novak camp (I admire him for refusing to go against his personal values/beliefs) so I wasn't a fan of Rafa's comments in Australia. But I've not liked seeing all the projection today on Soc med attempting to link Nadal's issues to MRNA vax / clotting etc. I think it's speculative and in bad taste. It's almost like people wishing him ill to further their argument
Report brain dead jockeys March 21, 2022 10:42 PM GMT
rafa nearly lost to seb korda early on........he wasnt playing that well to be honest....still cant believe he lost to mr fritz. hes such a mediocre player.
its 3 weeks to monte carlo. zverev, tsitsipas, alvarez and novak will be his main challangers. whenever rafa is a contender and/or winner of hardcourt events like he has this year, he goes on to totally dominate the clay court season. he has only done the clay court masters series and french open clean sweep once - 2010. that year he also won wimbledon and the us open. maybe he will skip barcelona this year.

Clearly run out of steam & hampered by injury having played the most amount of tennis he's ever played at this stage of any season.

He's probably played twice as much tennis an anybody else.

Should have quit after the 1st set to preserve himself for the clay season.
