Rafael Nadal is good at football, could have been a star in Russia - Safin

The former world No. 1 Marat Safin spoke about Rafael Nadal's football abilities. The Russian, who commentated the match between the Spaniard and Daniil Medvedev on Sunday in New York, said: "Nadal is a pretty good football player.

He would be a star in Spartak Moscow or Zenit St. Petersburg." Before the fifth set started, Safin said: "If Nadal loses this match, we can say he has finally become old." Safin also shared an interesting opinion: "As tennis players get older they start to fear more — because they know much more about the game and what may happen.

When you are young you don't think about those things." Speaking on BBC Radio Live the 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash commented on Rafael Nadal's five-set US Open final win over Daniil Medvedev on Sunday. The Australian former player said: "Absolutely phenomenal performance from Medvedev.

He has shown how mentally tough he is. his determination is spectacular and he has shown that is an absolute superstar athlete. That must have been the most stressful Grand Slam win that Rafa's ever had." Nick Kyrgios launched an interesting contest through his official Twitter account.

The Australian player is looking for a doubles partner he can play with at the Zhuhai Championship that starts on September 23. "Anyone wanna play zhuhai doubles? Dumb lazy to text so hit me here haha. Cameron Norrie dogged me so looking for partners", wrote Kyrgios.
