Rafa Nadal virtually eliminated from the ATP Finals




The Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal has been virtually eliminated from the ATP Finals, which are played in Turin, after falling to the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime in his second match of the Green Group (6-3, 6-4), a defeat that It could also allow his compatriot Carlos Alcaraz to retain world number one until next year.




Since 2009, the Spaniard had not lost four games in a row -something he has only experienced four times in his career-, but Auger-Aliassime delved into his wound, all with his uncle Toni, the North American’s coach, sitting on the opposite bench as a witness.




2-0 victory this Tuesday for the American Taylor Fritz against the Norwegian Casper Ruud would virtually keep the Spaniard with options, who should win Ruud by two sets on Thursday and hope that Fritz will also beat Auger 2-0 on the same day -Aliassime, all this in addition to needing a better percentage of games won than the Norwegian and the Canadian.




The elimination of Nadal, current number two in the ATP ranking, would allow Carlos Alcaraz from Murcia to finish 2022 as number one in the world, becoming the first Spaniard since 2019 -when Nadal himself achieved it- to do so.
