Nadal in tears after reaching Australian Open final

Nadal in tears after reaching Australian Open final

On January 25, Djokovic managed to oust the defending champion 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 in two hours and 26 minutes, claiming his second win over the Swiss and ending Roger's unprecedented streak of ten Grand Slam finals in a row that started at Wimbledon 2005!

"Obviously it's his first semi-finals at a Slam, but he has won against Nadal in NY some years ago, and he's made advances at the big tournaments", six-times Melbourne champion Djokovic added. I was more aggressive. but suddenly I lost momentum and I was not playing the same game which was working", Pliskova said after the match."I stopped a little bit.

"There's damage inside my knee I'm aware of that I'm trying to avoid potentially having to have surgery on", said Raonic, who has been hampered by injuries throughout his career.

"But I've said it before, and I always have plenty of belief in myself, and I think the self-belief is something that always prevails". His hitting partner today is Lucas Pouille, a lucky 24-year-old Frenchman, and.no, this is too harsh.

That's what Pouille has to keep in mind as he steels himself for his first ever major semi-final. The Serb has not had the most convincing of tournaments, being challenged by Canadian Denis Shapavalov, and Russian Daniil Medvedev, losing a set to each, in his third and fourth round matches respectively. That's why I think the quality of the tennis is 100 percent right away. "We'll see on Sunday how he goes, because Rafa looks pretty wonderful, too". "It's a job that you have to travel a lot to be able to do it in the proper way, so I think that's also what makes it pretty hard".

"I think when Novak is playing like this, yeah, he's the best in the world for sure", Pouille told reporters.

If Pouille plays at his absolute best, he could take a set, but anything more than that is a stretch.

During an emotional interview with CBS Sunday Morning in September, she opened up about her challenging fertility struggles. Explaining her reaction to the heartbreak, the "blessed" star said, "My son, Isaiah , is the sweetest thing".

It took Pouille more than a half-hour to merely grab one game, and spectators roared, likely relieved at the prospect of a more competitive, not to mention longer, match.

"Maybe it's the fact they have children and then they have to leave the children", said Mauresmo, who brought her two children with her to Melbourne.

"I'm not going to put my hand up and say Rafael Nadal is not fit".

Eurosport presenter Matt Smith posed the question whether we could see a fifth-set super tie-break come into place in the final.

'Well, beating them in two sets is not impossible, but is really, really tough, ' he continued.

'Yeah, I beat Rafa in 2016. But he knows it will be impossible to repeat in Sunday's final against the man he describes as his greatest rival, No 2 Rafael Nadal, and that he will need to find other ways to win. "My game is pretty much the same".

The second break came with the help of another outrageous forehand victor after being wrong-footed, a dreamy lob victor followed by a tricky backpedalling overhead smash made to look ridiculously easy.
