Rafael Nadal, a 22-time Grand Slam champion, expressed his sympathies to the Royal Family and the people of Britain following the passing of Queen Elizabeth. On Twitter, Rafael Nadal sent the remark. The British people and the Royal Family of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland have my most profound sympathies on Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II’s passing, Nadal said on Twitter.
Nadal once declined the Queen’s unusual invitation.
In order to concentrate on his Wimbledon second-round match, Nadal confesses to skipping the opportunity to see the Queen in 2010. The Daily Express stated that during Her Majesty’s infrequent visit to the All England Club, Nadal “had been invited to spend time with Her Majesty.”
Nadal, though, prioritized getting ready for his match against Robin Haase, so he wasted the golden opportunity. “It was disheartening, but the Wimbledon club is aware of my pre-game rituals. I anticipated that the contest would be very challenging.
I couldn’t have met the Queen at that time since I had to train. I follow a routine. It is quite challenging before the game when you don’t know when you’ll play. You have the third match, but if you get hurt then, you’re already on the court.
I couldn’t meet her at that time because I had to practice, according to Nadal at the time. But Nadal hoped the Queen would stick around to watch him play. “On a serious note, I believed the Queen would attend my match, and I would dearly enjoy the opportunity to see her after the match.
But it was impossible because, in my opinion, the Queen had already left. It was disheartening to me. I was eager to see her, but it was also a crucial match for me, Nadal remarked, according to the Express. Tomas Berdych was defeated by Rafael Nadal in the Wimbledon championship match of that year.
