Adriano Panatta does not hide his regrets

Adriano Panatta could not miss the ATP Finals in Turin. The former racquet ace did not hide his regret that Rafael Nadal did not make it to the semifinals. “For the tournament, the Spaniard’s premature exit is a great pity,” he remarked, speaking to Corriere della Sera.

For a champion who has gone out there is another who has every intention of going all the way. “I saw a Novak Djokovic in great form, we’ll see,” added one of the 1976 Davis Cup kings.

Rafael Nadal, nicknamed Rafa, with his victory at the 2022 Australian Open became the first of the Big Three to surpass 20 Slams. The Spanish tennis player is famous for his deadly left-handed top-spin and extraordinary mental strength. These qualities have led him to be considered the best tennis player ever on clay where he boasts the beauty of 14 Roland Garros titles.

In addition, the Spanish champion became the youngest tennis player in the Open era to have completed the Career Grand Slam and the Career Golden Slam, in 2010.
