Watch video highlights as Rafael Nadal progressed to the third round of the Australian Open after straight-sets win over Yannick Hanfmann.
Rafa says in his post-match interview on court that he is “not a gym guy” but is a lover of different sports to stay in shape.
I play some golf. I never have been a gym guy … I am not a big fan of the gym, I am a fan of playing sports.
Sometimes I am able to have some good practices on court, sometimes I am not able to do it. I just try to be ready to work; doesn’t matter the way – sometimes more tennis, sometimes more gym.
Well done Rafa! 5 more to go…
Frenchman Ugo Humbert has tested positive.
According to Zverev, players aren’t being tested for COVID-19. He is basically staying to himself except to play his matches; no restaurants, no nothing.
VERY interesting news….
I hope this “entrepreneur” is not taking ND on a wild goose chase.
“The Serbian superstar, who became a focus of the global vaccine debate over his failed attempt to enter Australia without being inoculated, holds a majority stake in a Danish biotech firm aiming to develop a treatment to counter COVID-19, the company’s CEO told Reuters.
QuantBioRes boss Ivan Loncarevic, who described himself as an entrepreneur, said the tennis player’s acquisition of the 80% stake was made in June 2020 but declined to say how much it was.
The company is developing a peptide, which inhibits the coronavirus from infecting the human cell, expects to launch clinical trials in Britain this summer, according to Loncarevic, who stressed the firm was working on a treatment, not a vaccine.
The CEO said the company had about a dozen researchers working in Denmark, Australia and Slovenia. According to the Danish company register, Djokovic and his wife Jelena own 40.8% and 39.2% of the company, respectively.
A spokesperson for Djokovic did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”
today was not good. He needed way too much second serves and many double faults. Third round is going to be very difficult against kachanov and then 4th round against karatsev and quartfinal against zverev. I dont know if he wins the tournament that will be biggest sensation in tennis history
All the best for the next round. Keep it up. Vamos Rafa.
Here on Rafa gets tricky players who have good serves or heavy hitters. Rafa must play cool and outfox them – specially, if he has to face Karatsev in 4 th round or even Zverev in Qrts!
Congrats, Rafa-tricky opponent, at times, but you prevailed. Stay healthy and positive-great to see you
competing and fighting for the win👏👍💪🤛🍀😎🎾❤️
