Rafael Nadal reacts after his best clay-court win of the season against Stan Wawrinka


His rival will be the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, who left out current champion Alexander Zverev. Nadal’s uncle explains how he trained him: “I did not want him to be dependent on me.”

  Rafa Nadal will play at the Mutua Madrid Open semi-finals after defeating Stanislas Wawrinka in one of his best recent games. Manakorrenze dominated with 6-1 and 6-2 and stood in front of the audience waiting until the last hour of Friday to attend the game of the day. The first set was reached with quick access. Without leaving a margin to the Swiss, Nadal took the game without leaving a margin on Wavrinka’s return to the game. He violated his opponent’s strategy for only 24 minutes.
The last vacation, which brought him back to the world, made the Swiss smile, which tried to return the match in the next game. In the second set the victory not only finished, but showed even better tennis. The public stood up from the hospital chair, especially with points like the one that made it clear that the party would be handed over to the Spanish side. Nadal’s rival will be the dishonest Stefano Tsitsipas, who defeated the 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 ruling Madrid champion Alexander Zverev in a game not only on the basis of his game but also on his ability to disturb his opponent.
