Rafael Nadal continues his bid for an improbable calendar-year Grand Slam by fighting off Francisco Cerundolo to win 6-4 6-3 3-6 6-4 on Centre Court.
Rafa on his health after practicing with Covid withdrawal Matteo Berrettini on Thursday:
“It is difficult to be a close contact when you are outside and when you are practising. It’s just that in the outdoors, things look like historically they are more difficult. But anything can happen, no? For the moment I am feeling great, no problems at all. The main thing is I feel very sorry for him because he was playing fantastically, winning two tournaments before this tournament started. He’s a very good colleague on tour. We know each other well. I know how sad he will probably feel today? So I am sorry for him and wish him a quick recovery. If I am not wrong, Matteo has been sick for a couple of days. He was unlucky the last couple of months, without a doubt.”
