NADAL REACHES MILESTONE 1,000TH VICTORY

Written by on November 6, 2020

BECOMING ONLY THE FOURTH MAN TO REACH 1,000 WINS SHOULD HAVE DRAWN DEAFENING CHEERS AND A STANDING OVATION FOR TENNIS GREAT, RAFAEL NADAL.

INSTEAD, HE REACHED HIS MILESTONE AMID A CATHEDRAL-LIKE SILENCE WEDNESDAY IN A 20,000-SEAT STADIUM THAT WAS COMPLETELY EMPTY BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. THERE WAS ONLY A FIST-BUMP FROM FELICIANO LOPEZ, AFTER NADAL BEAT HIM 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 IN A SUBDUED ATMOSPHERE MORE WORTHY OF A LIBRARY STUDY AREA THAN A SPORTS ARENA.
