Spain’s Rafael Nadal confirmed in the press conference that followed his qualification for the Wimbledon semi-finals that it was difficult to determine the seriousness of the injury suffered in the quarter-final meeting.
The Spanish Matador indicated that tomorrow’s tests will outline the way forward for the third successive Grand Slam final this year.
The Spaniard said after the game: “For a few moments I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to finish the game, but the fans and the energy… Thanks for that “.
“I honestly enjoy playing similar games in front of you guys. I cannot thank you enough for the support “.
Nadal is seeking his third consecutive Grand Slam title after being crowned at the Australian Open early this year, and then the Roland Garros French Championship last month, raising his yield to 22 major titles.
The Spaniard previously claimed two Wimbledon grass-court titles in 2008 and 2010.
