During his press conference, Rafael Nadal gave an update on his nose injury after battling past Fabio Fognini in the second round at the US Open:
“It was just a strong hit. At the beginning I thought I broke the nose because it was a shock at the beginning, it was very painful.
“I lost little bit the – I don’t know how to say in English – but a little bit of the feeling of my head. It’s about being a little bit out of the world. I don’t know, seems like it is not broken. I am not sure yet. I don’t know. I think it’s getting bigger and bigger.”
“That’s just a shock, in some way I deserved it [for] playing that bad for a while (laughter). No, I’m joking.”
