In the men’s finals of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, Rafael Nadal was able to defeat Daniil Medvedev by s9traght sets to a roaring victory. However, Nadal has now expressed his plans of withdrawing from the upcoming Cincinnati Open.
Spaniard was able to defeat his opponent by 6-3 and 6-0 which now arks his record-extending 35th ATP title victory but his hopes to win the 36t title has been placed on hold.
World rank no. 2 Nadal himself announced that he is not going to participate in the upcoming Cincinnati open due to his fatigue and will only participate in the upcoming US Open when it starts on August 26th, 2019.
Nadal after winning his Third tour title of the season said, “for me to start the match in a good shape was very important. Medvedev came to match playing so great and also after playing a lot of matches. But for me, it was a different story. I had only played 3 matches on these hard courts. Still, I think that I played a great first game. He had a breakpoint and I also played well. This was my best match of this week without any doubts.”
With these straight-sets victory, Nadal has managed to defend his hardcourt title for the very first time in his career.
With Nadal now getting 1000 ATP ranking points, he will now be finishing as the world rank no. 1 and will also move in the 1st position of the TP race to London.
