An injured Rafael Nadal has made a losing start at the World Tour Finals in London. He went down 7-6(5), 6-7(4), 6-4 to David Goffin in his opening match at the O2 Arena on Monday.
At one moment Rafa looked at his team and said “I can’t anymore”, but he didn’t want to stop. With his fighting spirit, he even managed to save four match points to take Belgian player into a decider of the second set.
The defeat leaves Rafa almost certainly needing to win his remaining two second-round matches to make the semi-finals, but will he make it? We’ll have to wait and see.
