Wimbledon 2022: Rafael Nadal's match-point and the final celebration

Rafael Nadal needs a great performance to reach the second round of Wimbledon 2022. Up to the second set the match proceeded according to predictions and without particular problems. Then, the Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo took courage and began to put the Spaniard in difficulty, surrendering only after tearing a partial.

Not an easy debut but a winning one for Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon, important given the sacrifices and defeats of almost all the direct opponents of his part of the draw. With Cilic, Auger-Aliassime and Berrettini out, the Iberian has a unique opportunity to be able to reach the end of the competition and play the cards to win the 23rd Grand Slam of his career (an absolutely not impossible goal).

We also recall, in the meantime, Serena Williams was eliminated int he first round of the London Slam. Here is the video of the match point, which allowed him to remove the pass for the second round.
