Nadal, who throughout 2022 had achieved 20 wins, pointed out: “All I can say is that it’s hard for me to breathe. When I try to breathe, it’s painful and it’s very uncomfortable.”
“When I breathe, when I move, it’s like a needle all the time in here”, He detailed while pointing to his chest and added: “I get a little dizzy because it is painful. I don’t know if it’s something in the rib, I don’t know yet.”
“Although it is obvious that today I have not been able to do the normal things, it is a final. I have tried it. I lost against a great player”, completed the 35-year-old tennis player.
