Rafael Nadal played phenomenally and eliminated Michael Mmoh 6-1, 6-4 and 6-2 in straight sets. However, the flashes of the Australian night were taken away by a very particular situation that had as protagonists the European and a spectator in the gallery.
At the close of the second set, the lady insulted the Spaniard and showed him her finger, leaving the tennis player stunned. In this regard, Nadal spoke at a press conference: “It was a strange situation, but funny,” declared the Manacori and added “sometimes there are people for everything in this world.” Laughing, the number 2 in the world pointed to himself and reiterated that “it was me, I was doing this” (raising his finger).
On the status of women, Rafa said: “Maybe she had a lot of gin or tequila … Poor girl, because she was probably drunk or something.”.
