On October 11th, Beijing time, the 2020 French Open men’s singles battle began. Unexpectedly, Nadal was playing against
Nadal broke twice at the start of the game today, establishing a huge 3-0 advantage. The Djokovic was not without a chance to save the situation. However, in the crucial fourth game, Nadal saved 3 break points and brought the score to 4. -0, it can be said that there is almost no suspense to win the first set. In fact, Nadal did not give the Djokovic any chance to counterattack. In the fifth game, he broke serve again with 4 points in a row when he was 15-40 behind. Then he broke serve again and swept the Djokovic in the first set 6-0.
Did you think of this result? I believe no one would have predicted this script. Even the official social platform of the ATP Tour also published an article praising the "unbelievable". Yes, this is indeed an unexpected result. Even though Nadal is the king of clay, it is Djokovic. The clay court is not weak, it is hard to shave his bald head, let alone in the Grand Slam.
You know, this is the second time that Nadal and Djokovic have faced a score of 6-0 in 56 clashes. The egg-delivery side is Nadal. Last year, at the Rome Masters, Nadal's first set was 6-0. Now he is sending eggs again at the French Open. This is also the first time that the two have a 6-0 disparity in a Grand Slam confrontation.
But for Nadal, giving eggs at the French Open does not make you "wait for a thousand years." In 2008, the French Open faced Federer in a decisive battle. Nadal ended Federer 6-0 in the third set in such a cruel way. From the French Open in 2008 to the French Open in 2020, there is a twelve-year cycle. What remains unchanged is that Nadal is still unsolvable. The first set against Germany and Joker took 45 minutes and scored 10 winning points. Only two were non-oppressive. Mistakes completely taught De Yue a lesson.
