It was the eighth game when the Russian stopped, and Nadal came in at 0:40 and came out of the first of three options at the break, and then won the set with a serve.
In the second set, Danil Medvedev did not accept what had happened in the previous one, so he removed the first kick to the opponent. He soon had a 3: 0 as well as a 4: 1 lead, and then Nadan scored four games, including two breaks.
The Spaniard advanced 5: 4 and served, it looked like he would win soon, but the second break of the match and set was done by Medvedev and equalized. The second set was a draw, with the Russian “mini-breaking” his opponent twice and drawing in the sets.
At the start of the third set Nadal defended a break ball, but there was no interruption until the Russian broke the game until the seventh game. He took a break, confirmed at 5: 3 and Nadal had to be on duty to continue the match. Then Medvedev broke down a second time and went to the finals.
