Wait, I’m not ready! Serbs accuse Nadal of a dirty trick – Tennis – Sport

In the absence of Novak Djokovic, it should have been a clear attack on another Grand Slam title. However, Rafael Nadal is saying goodbye to New York after the eight-final program.

The Spaniard was not enough in Flushing Meadows against home Frances Tiafoe. He lost to him in four sets, which especially pleased the supporters of Novak Djokovic.

So Nadal did not use the chance to overtake the Serb in the number of Grand Slam titles by two. Even at the end of this year, he will remain at number 22. Djokovic is 21.

The Serbian media write about the fact that even the “dirty trick” he has been using for years did not help Nadal to advance.

Rafa led 5:4 in the second set and 40:15 when Tiafoe served. The American was preparing for another serve, but Nadal indicated to him that he was not ready yet.

“It threw Tiafoe out of rhythm, he made a double fault and lost the whole set,” wrote the Serbian portal Blic.rs.

According to him, Djokovic’s fans are rioting, as Nadal’s move did not escape their attention. Blic pointed out that this was not the first time. The Spanish star showed something similar already at Wimbledon in a fight with Taylor Fritz.
