Nadal happy after ‘very good test’ against Van de Zandschulp at Roland Garros | Currently

Rafael Nadal is very pleased with his victory over Butch van de Zandschulp in the third round of Roland Garros. The 21-time Grand Slam winner only had to give up nine matches to the best Dutch tennis player (6-3, 6-2, 6-4).

“It was a very good test and I played my best match of the tournament without a doubt,” said the 35-year-old. “I am very satisfied with my performance during the first two sets and the beginning of the third.”

“This is very good news and I will be back in training on Saturday knowing I have raised my level a lot. I have to stick with this now and keep working on specific things. Then I try to be ready to race again from Sunday.”

Van de Zandschul didn’t need a single moment against Nadal. The 29th in the world struggled in the third set after trailing 4-0, but the group wasn’t there in him.

Nadal meets Tony’s uncle in the eighth final

In the next round, Felix Auger-Aliassime is Nadal’s opponent and this is a hot duel. In fact, the Canadian helps Nadal’s uncle, Tony Nadal, with whom Nadal celebrated great successes. It is reported that Toni Nadal indicated that he would not train Auger-Aliassime in fencing with his cousin.

“I don’t know what will happen, but I don’t worry about it,” Nadal said. “It’s not a problem for me.” “I know he wants the best for me. Now he’s leading another player, no problem at all.”

Nadal also discussed the presence of Zinedine Zidane in the stands of Susan Lenglin Court. “I didn’t like him, but I knew he was there, because the fans cheered his name,” said the world number 5, a big Real Madrid fan. “I didn’t get a chance to see him or talk to him after the match.”

Nadal has won the Roland Garros Championship thirteen times. The last time was in 2020. Last year, the Spaniard was stranded in the semi-finals.
