Fritz, Humiliated, Says: “It’s the Worst Defeat of My Career”
American tennis player Taylor Fritz has openly admitted how hurt he was to have been defeated by Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon on Wednesday.
The American lost a two-sets-to-one lead against Nadal, who was facing an abdominal issue and was struggling to serve for much of the four-hour, 20-minute match.
“After the match was over, I was sitting there and I felt like crying, like I wanted to cry,” Fritz said.
“I’ve never felt like that ever after a loss. I’ve never felt like I could cry after a loss. Just that’s telling enough to know that this one hurt more than any other one’s hurt before.
