THE BALL – «One of the craziest tie-breaks of my career» (Tennis)

Rafael Nadal is in the quarter finals of the Australian Open after beating Frenchman Mannarino, and to close the first set he was taken in a crazy tie-break, which lasted 28 minutes, and only ended with 16-14.

“It was one of the craziest tie-breaks of my career. It was worth half the date, no doubt. Mannarino played very well, with balls that were difficult to control, which gives more value to my victory, I managed to resist in difficult moments», said the Spaniard, who evaluated chances of reaching the title now facing Russian Shapopalov:

“I’ve worked hard over the last few months to get back on the circuit, now I’m enjoying having arrived in the quarters. I don’t know if I’m ready to win, I said before that I wasn’t a candidate, but in sport things change quickly. I’m better than I was ten days ago. Shapopalov is one of the most potential players on the circuit, it’s hard to stop. And now you can no longer expect easy rivals.”
