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.
