Rafael Nadal was forced to withdraw from his Paris Masters semi-final clash with Denis Shapovalov on Saturday afternoon due to an abdominal injury he sustained during his warm-up.
The Canadian youngster was asked about Rafa’s injury, and is hopeful that it isn’t anything serious.
I hope it’s nothing too serious. Hopefully he’s back and healthy for London.
I feel like he’s had an amazing season, and it would be great to see him healthy and playing well in London.
I think he can do really well there.
Joyce, I could have written your post. I’m ONLY 73, but otherwise it’s uncanny. There are lots of older people who idolize Rafa. About 8 years ago I met a fan who’s a few years older than me. She had posted something that a really scary guy ripped into her about. I didn’t know her but l answered her & said how she didn’t deserve his venom. We corresponded & got him kicked off the website. We are both rabid Rafa fans & grandmothers. We decided to start a fan club called “Grannies for Rafa”. Jane lives in Tunisia, I live in Richmond VA. We had 3 other members, in Canada, England & I don’t remember the other one. Unfortunately, it fizzled out after a couple of years. Jane from Tunisia & I have messaged a lot & have become great friends. She was so lucky to go to a tournament in Dubai where Rafa was playing. She waited by the exit area holding Rafa’s book. He stopped to autograph it and brushed against her arm. She’ll never forget that!!
Rafael I’m 74 yrs old. I’ve been watching you ever since you became pro. I loved this scraugny looking kid and can’t stop loving you.
As a mother and grandmother I was hoping you’d wait for me to marry moi but you married your sweetheart.
Good for you son, although I didn’t get an invitation neither a bit of cake I celebrated with a glass of champagne. Stay fit and healthy for the upcoming season
I will always love you for your sportsmanship in tennis and golf. Hey would love to see you in Australia in 2020, but ney maybe when I’m 90 I could afford it then and by that time you’ll have some beautiful kids for me to see. Congratulations Rafa I love you because you love TENNIS keep fit for the next season 👍🙏🥂💋
Now, that’s very nice of Shapo.
Always considering others than his own ego.
Good luck for Shapo in the finals against Djokovic
Hopefully Nadal recovers in time for the ATP finals in London
