Rafa Nadal questions timing of Andy Murray's withdrawal

31 Août 2017

"The important thing is to win because is normal that you have some nerves at the beginning and you get a little bit tight at the beginning of the tournament".

His withdrawal caused Nadal and Roger Federer to both be in the same half of the draw, preventing a potential meeting between the two in the final in NY. Murray has been criticised in some quarters for not pulling out before the draw, which would have led to Nadal and Federer being seeded No 1 and No 2 and on course to meet in the final.

Federer, the owner of the all-time record 19 Slam crowns, by contrast, said he would "love" the opportunity to face Nadal in the semis.

World number one Rafael Nadal's quest for a 16th grand slam title will face a fresh test when he battles Japan's Taro Daniel in the pair's first-ever meeting at the U.S. Open on Thursday. "It was a bit odd that he retired the morning after the draw".

"Overall I think the inspiration is being here, really", Sharapova said in a video on the US Open website.

Colas, filiale de Bouygues, acquiert le groupe canadien Miller McAsphalt
Signé le 30 août 2017 à Toronto, ce protocole d'accord porte sur le rachat de 100% des titres du groupe, qui devrait être bouclé début 2018, sous réserve de l'obtention d'approbations réglementaires, précise Colas .

The timing matters to Nadal because Murray was seeded number two for the tournament, meaning they were in different halves of the draw, and would not have met until the final. So I wish him a fast and good recovery. You retire on Monday morning or Sunday afternoon, not Saturday morning. "If not, you can do it before the draw".

"It has been a great year and I hope we can keep playing like this".

Nadal, who pulled out of Wimbledon in 2009 on the Friday night after the draw had been made due to ongoing knee problems, ultimately won comfortably against Lajovic but looked far from comfortable during the opening set under the roof on Arthur Ashe Stadium. "I mean, even people didn't think he was going to win the French Open again".

Top-seeded Karolina Pliskova won the first set 6-2 against Magda Linette of Poland, then the players waited between sets while the retractable roof was closed.
