Rafael Nadal All went smoothly Everything went well for Rafael Nadal against Botic Van De Zandschulp in the Monday

match until it was time to conclude their fourth round game at Wimbledon. Playing for the win with a score of 5-3

during the 3rd set Nadal was broken twice during the match, and was unable to convert three consecutive match

points, despite ahead 6-3 going into the tiebreaker. This was the end of the Dutchman's fight, however it was a matter

of time before Nadal took advantage of the fourth point of the match to secure the 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (6) victory in

the third set on Centre Court. The Spaniard will be playing in his first grass-court event since his last

tournament in 2019, where He was defeated by Roger Federer in the Wimbledon semifinals. He's hoping for

an unprecedented third Wimbledon title and is in the running for an annual year-long calendar Grand Slam after

winning the Australian Open and French Open to increase his record to an all-time high of 23 major championships.

To get to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in the middle of three consecutive years of not playing here is an incredible experience
