Former world number 10 Sam Querrey is hoping to see Spain’s legendary tennis star Rafael Nadal provide a ‘closure’ for his fans when he takes the court in the upcoming French Open. The second Grand Slam of the year will be played from May 26 to June 09, and players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent and battle for the ultimate.
This year’s competition will be even more special because the most successful player in the tournament’s history, Nadal, will be featuring in it for the last time despite concerns regarding his fitness. Querrey was recently quoted in a report where he expressed his wish that the fans of the 37-year-old will get to see a full ‘closure’ when the former world number one will take part in court at the Roland Garros for the final time in the coming days.
"I hope he plays,” he said. “Even if he loses to, let’s call it a Hurkacz in the first round, 6-1, 6-2, 6-1. As a tennis fan, I want to see what the embrace is like from the crowd on Center Court as he walks off with a 30-minute celebration, people will be crying. As a fan, I need the closure. I need to see how it’s going to end. He can’t just walk away into the darkness now. He owes it to the world to walk out there and like, no one will care if he gets crushed first round, I don’t think.”
