THE BALL – Nadal finally beaten … on injury and Taylor Fritz (Tennis)

Rafael Nadal missed the first meeting of the year after 20 consecutive victories. It happened in the final of the Indian Wells tournament, against the American Taylor Fritz, the Spaniard being greatly diminished by an injury which had already been assisted in the semi-final against Carlos Alcaraz, which lasted more than three hours. .

The Spaniard, who sought physiotherapy consultation before the second set and had his back and chest treated, paid the bill for the previous effort in the final and world-ranked 20th Taylor Fritz won by the partials of 6-3 and 7-6 (7-5) in about two hours. He won the tournament for the first time against the Spaniard, 4th in the world, who was looking for his fourth triumph, being only the second ATP of his career.

Fritz is the first American to win at Indian Wells since Andre Agassi in 2001.
