The outcome of the competition at Wimbledon had unexpected news this Thursday: Rafael Nadal (ATP: 4) withdrew due to an abdominal injury and will not be able to play the semifinals against Nick Kyrgios (ATP: 40). After hearing the news, the Australian tennis player, who will advance directly to fight for the Grand Slam title, spoke about the withdrawal of the 'Matador'.

“Different players, different personalities. Rafa, I hope your recovery goes well and we all hope to see you healthy soon. Until next time”, said the 'Bad Boy' through Instagram, while sharing a postcard with the prominent Spanish tennis player in one of the many clashes they had.

The post generated great interaction and the followers also supported the publication with heartfelt messages dedicated to Nadal. Let's remember that the 'Fiera' suffered a seven-millimeter tear in one of his muscles in the abdomen, after the narrow victory over the American Taylor Fritz.

In this way, Kyrgios reaches a Grand Slam final for the first time in his career, and he will have to wait to meet his rival: Novak Djokovic (ATP: 3) will face Cameron Norrie (ATP: 12) in the semifinal this Friday, July 7 (9:00 a.m. Peruvian time).

“I think in the last two years nobody would have thought that I could do this. They would have said that I don't have enough discipline, that I don't have the physicality, that I don't have the mentality to achieve it. I even began to doubt myself about whether I wanted to continue playing. I had lost the love for the game, the desire, the spark, with all these thoughts going in and out of my mind”, recently confessed Nick, who now dreams of reaching the Wimbledon crown.
