The Spaniard beats the pugnacious Berankis in four sets, after a hiatus due to rain

Rafa Nadal is already in the third round at Wimbledon. After beating the combative Ricardas Berankis (6-4, 6-4, 4-6 and 6-3) this Thursday in four sets in three hours of a rain-interrupted final round match, the Spaniard will take on the Italian Lorenzo Sonego, who defeated Frenchman Hugo Gastón 7-6(4), 6-4, 6-4. Nadal overcame the battle Berankis gave and despite his many casual mistakes, he showed his solvency to take it one step further in the third Grand Slam of the season and recover sensations after three years without playing on grass.

Nadal reached the third round for the 11th time in 15 appearances at Wimbledon and has already won 32 times this season, racking up 1,060 career victories, 307 in Grand Slam tournaments, already ranking fourth in history , surpassed only by Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic, the all-time favorite to win the title in London.

The man from Manacor had trouble again at times against Berankis, the number 106 in the world, because he made up to 37 mistakes on his right. So much time away from the grass and recently recovered from his left foot thanks to radiofrequency treatment to relieve the pain, they again took their toll on the Spaniard in the third set, but he overcame the setbacks that beset his class.

As happened in the first round against Argentinian Cerúndolo, Nadal did not go over his second rival and mixed irregular sections with very good moments. However, the rain stoppage in the fourth round gave him the strength to finish a game as quickly as possible in which the Spaniard returned officially to shoot.
