Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek both are currently in London England, the United Kingdom for the third Grand Slam and have successfully reached the third round of the Wimbledon Championships 2022 in men’s and women’s categories respectively. Both have been going through a very decent season so far where the Polish professional won five WTA titles and a Grand Slam in Paris, France and Nadal on the other hand has won both the majors of the year, in Australia and the Roland Garros for the record-extending 14th time.
Nadal is so impressed with Swiatek’s stunning run this season and not just him, the 21-year-old has made everyone her fan that she is one of the top-heavy favourites to win another major in England. The 22 times Grand Slam champion said that he has texted the WTA World No. 1 several time regarding her stunning form. “I texted her a couple of times because it’s unbelievable the way that she is playing,” said Nadal on Swiatek as reported by tennis journalist Luigi Gatto. He further said, “She is so powerful and moves really well. It’s very difficult to stop her right now.”
Meanwhile, Nadal will face Lorenzo Sonego and the WTA No. 1 player Swiatek will lock horns with Alize Cornet tomorrow for their third-round clash.
