Nadal in the Round of 16, Wimbledon 2022: Songo won 1-6, 2-6, 4-6

Sonego’s trip to Wimbledon ends in the third round, where he was lost in 3 sets by Nadal (1-6, 2-6, 4-6). A dominant performance for the Spaniard who immediately raises the engine speed. In the second set, Rafa starts better and expands his entire repertoire, while in the third, Sonego manages to take a break from the back, but, nevertheless, it is not enough to avoid elimination. Nadal will face Dutchman Van de Zandschul in the round of 16


Here ends the adventure of Sonego’s Wimbledon. On the middle, the blue suffers from a lot of strength from Rafael Nadal who partially wins the second round 6-1, 6-2, 6-4. Giant performance of the Spaniard who raises the bar compared to the previous matches and after a first question and answer without tremors, dominates the match and leaves only one match in the hands of Sonego. There is no shortage of errors by the Torino player, almost not indicating the response, but even when needed in the right way finds the opponent’s hero’s answers, diagonally and along the line. Rafa goes on to win matches and makes a 4-0 lead in the second set, then takes it home without difficulty. The Italian admits to breaking the tie in the third set opener, but finds the right energy to respond and gives himself the best match points: in the eighth game, he also managed to take the break from behind (leaving Nadal at 0), but the ’86 class immediately reconfirms with the counter-breaker and then closes the challenge (78% in the first transmission). In the fourth round, he will face Dutchman Van de Zandschulp
