Rafael Nadal had to bandage up his right knee during his US Open clash with Karen Khachanov.
After the match, our champ elected not to discuss the knee injury, saying:
Just something that I felt, but I try always during the tournaments don’t speak much about these kind of things.
When the tournament is over is better and easier to talk.
But my personal feeling is I going to be at my 100% for the next one.
Carlos Moya was in the stands watching and during the interview for ESPN he said:
Rafa’s knee felt sore but nothing to worry about.
Sometimes he feels it more than other but he deals with it really well so that’s not an excuse.
