Breaking… Tennis Champ Rafael Nadal “Left Concerned” Has Breathing Problems During Indian Wells Defeat — Needed Treatment

Tennis champion Rafael Nadal was “left concerned” after suffering breathing problems during his defeat to Taylor Fritz in Indian Wells.

Nadal needed treatment following the match.

PA reported:

Rafael Nadal was left concerned by a breathing problem and sad at the end of his remarkable winning run after a final defeat to Taylor Fritz in Indian Wells.

The 35-year-old had won his first 20 matches of the season, claiming three titles including a 21st grand slam crown at the Australian Open, and was the favourite to win the first Masters event in 2022.

But instead that honour went to 24-year-old American Fritz, who celebrated a 6-3 7-6 (5) victory and the biggest moment of his career so far.

Nadal had battled through several close matches to reach the final and needed treatment at the end of his semi-final against Carlos Alcaraz on Saturday.

It was clear from the start of Sunday’s final that all was not well, with Nadal declining to chase down balls, rubbing his chest and losing the first four games.
