Triple 6-2 and just six games granted to the rival: the adventure of Rafael Nadal in the 2022 edition of Roland Garros could not have begun better than this. Overwhelming victory, according to prediction of the eve, for the Spaniard against the Australian Jordan Thompson, who could not do anything against the winner of 21 Grand Slam titles.
Test passed by the Spanish champion, who also spent little physical energy and was on the pitch the minimum necessary to win the first success in the Parisian tournament. The Manacor native also won the longest and most beautiful point of the match, finishing with a winning forehand an exchange that lasted 32 shots.
Nadal showed a very good shape, in view of more hard matches. His opponent's instinctive reaction was to throw the racket to the ground for lashing. The video of the incident was disseminated by the competition's social networks.
