When Rafael Nadal won the second round, a spectator caused an uproar with her behavior. The Spaniard responded with a loose saying.

  • During the match, the Spaniard was molested in the worst possible way by the spectator.
  • The Spaniard did not let himself upset and laugh after the match.

Melbourne – Just like Alexander Zverev, record-breaking Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal defeated his American opponent by three sets in the second round. During Thursday’s second-round match against Michael Moh (6: 1, 6: 4, 6: 2) a spectator caused a strange kind of scandal, insulting Nadal and even expelling him from the facility.

Australian Open: Nadal’s reaction to a mob attack – “Maybe too much gin or tequila”

“He was against me, not the referee.” “Maybe I drank too much gin or tequila,” Nadal said in a post-match smile. “It was a strange situation, but also funny. I didn’t even know why she showed me the middle finger. ”He doesn’t know the lady and“ honestly, he doesn’t want to get to know her either. ”

American Michael Moh’s reaction was also patient to the drunken mob, but in the end he had to admit defeat. And now Briton Cameron Nuri is waiting in the third round for Nadal, who won the Australian Open only once in 2009. Mallorca can beat Roger Federer, who is absent from Switzerland, with another victory in the Grand Slam, and thus become the only record holder. (Pay)
