Rafael Nadal has decided to have some great after his Roland Garros final as he reaches his 14th Grand Slam final in Paris, France. The Spanish professional awaits the winner between Casper Ruud and Marin Cilic in the final. The player after the final will skip a few events including grass-court Wimbledon.
Nadal reached the final of the tournament after getting a walkover by Alexander Zverev as the player injured himself badly during the end of the second set at the semifinals. The player was seen limping and crying in pain as he held his ankles down on the clay court. The German was sent back off the court for examinations but that couldn’t help him return to the court to play. He was seen walking with a help of clutches to say goodbye to the tournament and the crowd.
Seeing this incident, Nadal got emotional and prayed for the German’s health saying how important health is more than any game of the title. According to a report by MARCA, Nadal will not play in the next major event Wimbledon which is just three weeks away.

In addition, Wimbledon has banned players from Russia and Belarus and in response to that, ATP and WTA decided to not award the ranking points at the grass Grand Slam.
