Rafael Nadal says he was wrong after calling Lorenzo Sonego to the net to discuss an issue during their Wimbledon third-round match:
Well, first of all, I have to say that I was wrong. Probably, I should not call him on the net. So apologize for that. My mistake in that. No problem. I recognize that.
Then after that, all the stuff during the match that I don’t want to comment, because is something that I spoke with him in the locker room and it stays there. Only thing I can say is I saw him personally. I apologize for that.
My intention was never to bother him at all. Just to tell one thing that was bothering me that I think he was doing in that moment, but that’s it. I think there is some codes between players. Yeah, we had some issues there. But that’s it.
