The duel of the two former US Open Champions Rafa Nadal and Marin Cilic in the quarter-final is a classic. The Spaniards through against the Croats, although in not quite three hours, impressive 6:3, 3:6, 6:1, 6:2 . However, Nadal loses vest, his white as the last player on this year’s tournament and loses a set.

In the stands, Golf legend Tiger Woods is impressed by Nadal’s heavy appearance. He claps in the case of many point to win enthusiastic. For example, at the point, with Rafa the match ball out. He hits the Ball in extremis the outside to the power pole around the field.

Woods, who was formerly also a friend of Roger Federer, no longer considers it as the raging crowd on the Seats. His son Charlie is cheering next to him.

Nadal talks about children of your own

Until it, in turn, the Spaniard with children as far as is, it takes me a while. In the “Marca” said Nadal, who is getting married in October to this topic: “This is not a decision I make alone. I used to think, actually, that I would be entered in my age already back. And a family would have.”

Nadal is shown from the visit to the Woods’, is especially honoured. “I have earlier mentioned the entire time that I had by no means huge idols. But if I would have to call, he would be one of these idols.” To go golfing would be to him but to a lot of. Nadal says: “It would be better if Tiger would not see my swing. Maybe he would lose then a bit of his rhythm.”

Woods turns out to be so again, as a big Tennis Fan. What is the relationship between the Golf Star and Federer is today, is unknown. Last year Roger at the Swiss Indoors said: “I haven’t seen him in a long time. Formerly with the Gillette campaign we have, of course, and to be seen again. Also by Nike. But that was rare.”

Nadal encounters Argentines instead of Zverev

Nadal the Open-quarter-final is not waiting in the US on Wednesday, as expected, the German Alexander Zverev (ATP 6). Because of these flops again when you try to reach the last Eight of a major. Zverev loses against Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman with 6:3, 2:6, 4:6, 3:6.

In the case of Zverev, the nervous flutter once more. He makes mistakes incredible 17 double and will be punished because of a Wutausbruchs with Swearing, even with a point deduction. (rib)
