Rafael Nadal clashed with Lorenzo Sonego on Saturday night during his third round victory at Wimbledon (6-1, 6-2, 6-4). The Spaniard apologized afterwards.
« I must say that I was wrong. I shouldn’t have called him to the net. So my apologies for that. It’s my fault, no problem, I admit… “, said the Majorcan hot in a press conference.
But then why the hell did the interested party get carried away in the third set, summoning his opponent for an explanation at the net? ” It’s something I talked to him about in the locker room and it will stay there. », souffle Nadal.
And to conclude: My intention was not at all to annoy him. It was just to tell him that something bothered me about what he was doing at the time. That’s all. We had a little problem, but that’s it. »
