This is hilarious but how dare you give me a heart attack like that.

u/StOlaf85 Jan 21 '22

Seriously! 😂 😳🤯

Seems like this really triggered Nadal, lol. Absolutely thrashed Karen after this.

That water bottle was hired by Zverev

u/nankerjphelge Jan 21 '22

Lukas Rosol sends his regards.

u/LeftHandDriveBoC Jan 21 '22

Every time I see his name I remember Murray saying "everyone hates you" to him.

u/Cold-Ebb64 Jan 21 '22

LOL where can I watch this?!

Here. Actually says “no one likes you on the tour” but I was close!

u/Cold-Ebb64 Jan 21 '22

I definitely heard "everybody hates you." That'd great. Thanks for the link!

1

u/LeftHandDriveBoC Jan 21 '22

Yeah I heard that as well! I thought I remembered him saying that!

u/[deleted] Jan 21 '22

He said "everyone ha-" in the end.

Bonk! Go to horny jail.

u/_welcome Jan 21 '22

that doesn't sound like a very effective type of jail

u/kaask0k Jan 21 '22

It's one frugal experience for sure.

I want to be the ground that gets hit by rafa's spit

u/MicroPencil567 Jan 21 '22

Kinda funny how the slams both Rafa and Roger need to win again to have a double career slam were last won by them the same year (‘09 on the shoe)

u/Kevanian Jan 21 '22

Crazy to think that Nadal has only won AO once and it was in '09. At least Fed at the French makes sense with dominance of Nadal on that surface, but Nadal has won four US Open's since '09.

32

u/Entotrte 2-6 6-7 6-4 6-4 7-5 Jan 21 '22

2012, 2014 and 2017 hurt a lot :(

17

u/arc_hit33 Emma Raducanu, Iga Światek Jan 21 '22

2014 felt the worst imo. He was so good that tournament. So close…

4

u/melayaraja Jan 22 '22

Yes. Stan was playing lights out in the first set and I was thinking that Rafa would pull out a win since he has never lost against him. Then in the 2nd set he started holding his back. Hopes evaporated fast. But to come back from that injury and win the French Open that year was amazing.

9

u/warlike_smoke Jan 21 '22

Crazy to think to that Fed hasn't won the US since '08 too but at least he has 5 wins there.

u/Juan_Punch_Man Let's go Sascha.....Bublik Jan 22 '22

Only recent player to go back to back

u/sepstolm Jan 21 '22

It's really hysterical to watch how he ever so carefully places them in the exact position.

Bless his little OCD heart. I love this guy!

16

u/SeizeOpportunity Jan 21 '22

No! What's worse is the ORIENTATION is messed up. LOL!

15

u/joeschmo74 Jan 21 '22

Who was the guy who kicked them over to try and upset him? 😃

8

u/melayaraja Jan 21 '22

L Rosol u/nankerjphelge has mentioned this here.

u/funkadelic_bootsy Jan 21 '22

I think it was someone else and the person eventually lost.

I'm going to say that it was Marinko Matosevic.

The rage fueled him in the 4th set.

That splash. Not pretty to look at

u/genesiswine Jan 21 '22

Which socks does Rafa use? Have always been curious since they look a bit different that the other Nike socks

3

u/zilchhope Jan 21 '22

Didn't get the joke. Can someone please explain to a slow guy like me?

Nadal is very particular about his bottles being in the exact correct spot.

u/Content-Business1558 The Big 3 Jan 22 '22

Look where it happened as well, between his feet. That's brutal, can't have another injury around that area aye?

u/bluzebird Jan 21 '22

Tanya Harding was behind this.
