Rafa Nadal qualified for the semifinals of Wimbledon after beating Fritz in an epic match in which he played around three hours injured and a response to Toni Nadal from 11 years ago has gone viral after the triumph. During the duel on Wednesday, his father asked him to leave and the response was similar to today.
“Toni, I’m in the quarterfinals in Australia… and I’m not retiring or shitting.” Rafa Nadal told his uncle Toni in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open last year 2011. In that duel, the best of all time would end up falling to David Ferrer at the Rod Laver Arena. Nadal was eliminated but the phrase stayed there.
As in the Australian Open, history repeats itself in #Wimbledon.
