In an interview to the Roland Garros YouTube Channel, the previous world No. four WTA participant Daniela Hantuchova commented on Rafael Nadal's French Open ultimate win over Dominic Thiem.
“The best way he was in a position to come again after the bathroom break, Rafa within the third set was unbelievable and pushed it to a different stage. This can be very tough. The power that took Dominic to win that second set was enormous and also you simply need to maintain going with that momentum. Instantly, having to attend for seven minutes, that will need to have affected him huge time", stated Hantuchova. "When you’re somewhat bit drained, you want each little bit of power to be all the time sharp. He virtually needed to begin over once more. It’s such as you flip off your automotive after which it’s important to begin it once more. That prices additional power. It appeared like from then on, Dominic was simply not in a position to get well and be as sharp as he was within the first two units which is clearly very comprehensible hear from Rafa on the finish of the match that it’s going to be Dominic’s time someday, I believe was due to how nicely he was in a position to play in that first set. All of the credit score to Dominic. He tried every part he may to problem Rafa and he did, particularly within the second set. After that, it was simply the Rafa present and he deserves a little bit of that 12th title right here. It’s wonderful, I don’t suppose this document will ever be damaged. It was very attention-grabbing to listen to Rafa thinks will probably be Dominic’s time right here someday, simply not immediately
