Rafael Nadal played and defeated the Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas to show that he was master of the game. The 20 year old who had caused a major upset by winning over Roger Federer has been the cynosure of the tournament ever since. But Nadal outclassed him and sent him packing by thrashing him with 6-4, 6-2,6-0 in just 106 minutes.
After the match Tsitsipas commented about Nadal, ‘He has this talent that no other player has. He makes you play bad,’
This is Nadal’s first tournament since the US Open. His serves and aggressive shots were superb and helped him win the game.
Nadal is believed to be still wearing tape on his abdomen after his injury. However his game was spectacular and there was no letting up on his mastery of the game.
Nadal will now face the winner of the other Semi Final between Djokovic and Lucas Pouiille on Friday.
