• Chronicle.Zverev imposes his service and defeats Nadal

Rafa Nadal does not have the habit of losing his temper in the press room. Of course, provided they do not touch personal matters. This happened during the press conference after his defeat in London against Alexander Zverev (6-2, 6-4). The Balearic did not like the slightest question of an Italian journalist about whether his recent wedding in Mallorca with Xisca Perelló (October 19) had something to do with the defeat.

"Honestly, are you asking me this?" Nadal replied. "Is it a serious question or a joke?" He added visibly upset. "It's a big surprise that you're asking me this being the same girl who has been with me for 15 years. Having a stable and normal life. It doesn't matter if you put a ring on your finger or not," he continued.

But the spark didn't stop there. He even took one more turn. "How many years have you been with your partner?" Asked the tennis player, provoking the laughter of the journalists. "We go to Spanish, because this is bullshit," he concluded.
