Gerard Piqué, in an act during the US Open.
“Obviously, Nadal is the favorite for his entire career and what he has already achieved, but in tennis you never know. The four semifinal players have incredible potential,” Piqué said before the semifinal between the Balearic and Berrettini. “I am Spanish and I hope Rafa can do it,” he added in an interview to the official media of the New York Grand Slam.
Nadal is also one of the few tennis players who have expressed themselves in favor of the new Davis format, promoted by Piqué: “You have to give it a chance.” he declared late last season. “You have to stop saying‘ the Davis de Piqué. ” That doesn't help the competition, ”says Nadal. “I have spoken with him in a casual way and I have contributed my grain of sand. The Davis is an event in itself. It is an event of the International Federation and it is good that people from outside tennis want to invest and bet on our sport. So we should thank Piqué for betting on tennis and not putting obstacles. ”
