ATP > Corretja: “Nadal wins Roland-Garros, and two weeks later he is ready to play Wimbledon. I have the impression that only he can do that”

Alex Corretja is not recovering.

Already present in the English capital where he trained with two players for very disappointing results, the current 4e world player will participate in two exhibition matches before taking part in the third Grand Slam of the season. A situation that impresses the former Roland-Garros finalist.

“I have the impression that 2022 for Rafa has been a miracle, since the very beginning of the year.

He ended up winning, and a week later, or two weeks later, I thought maybe he needed time to rest, to recuperate. And now he’s ready to play Wimbledon.
