Kyrgios, against Korda after asking Nadal for his signed shirt

Sebastian Korda will never forget this October 4, 2020, the day in which he played his first round of 16 of a Grand Slam and in which 12-time Roland Garros champion Rafa Nadal was the only one who could stop his progress in Paris.

The American will also remember this day for the standing ovation that took place at the end of the match, including applause from Rafa Nadal, and also for taking a very special present from the Balearic tennis player. “Has someone ever asked their opponent for an autograph after the last point of a match? The best moment of my life. Thank you Rafa Nadal “, wrote the American next to a photo in which Rafa Nadal leaves signing the shirt that he used during the game to give it as a gift.

A gesture that did not like at all Nick Kyrgios, absent from Roland Garros due to the coronavirus pandemic, who expressed himself in this way on social networks when he saw the image. “It was probably the reason it destroyed him”, Alluding to the result of the match with a resounding victory for Nadal by 6-1, 6-1 and 6-2 in one hour and 55 minutes.

During the Roland Garros celebration Kyrgios already had a scuffle with Karen Khachanov as a result of Mats Wilander's controversial statements towards Andy Murray, to which the Russian ended up spouting: “Before criticizing my intellect, read a book and quit video games.”
