World number one Iga Swiatek has revealed that she would’ve asked for the t-shirt of Rafael Nadal if she had played against him. The 37-year-old is often regarded as one of the greatest players currently playing in the men’s singles category, having won as many as 22 Grand Slam titles.
Nadal has struggled with injuries in the recent past and it was because of this reason he announced back in 2023 that the 2024 season would be his last at the highest level. The former world number one participated in the ongoing Madrid Open where after his third-round win, his opponent in the contest Pedro Cachin asked him for his t-shirt.
Swiatek, who herself is playing in the mega-event, was recently quoted in a report where she stated that she did not find anything wrong with Cachin asking for the shirt as she would’ve done exactly the same. “If I would play against Rafa, for sure I would ask for a T-shirt,” she said. “But that’s not possible.” Nadal’s journey in the mega-event finally came to an end on Tuesday as he lost in the round of 16 to young Czech tennis star Jiri Lehecka in straight sets with a score of 7-5, 6-4.
