US Open to host temporary hospital & Federer back in action31 March 2020 / Miguel Coelho
What's been happening in Tennis during the last few days?
It is one of those stories that mark the life of an athlete and that thrill fans who follow close the sport. Roberto Bautista Agut, number nine in the ATP ranking and one of the best players in the world. The Spaniard is in the squad for the ATP finals when he received the news that his father was seriously ill. The Spaniard left the team on Thursday to keep up with his father's last moments (he died hours later) but returned to the competition to make a decisive contribution to Spain's victory.
Ready to play the final
In a story of emotional overcoming, Agut puts his team in front with a 6-3 7-6 (9-7) win and left the title in the hands of Nadal, who sealed the Spanish triumph. Agut not only wons an important tennis match but wons too the respect of the world number one who does not hide the thrill in the celebrations moments.“It was an amazing week in every way. I won eight meetings, but the vital person was Roberto. It´s an example for the rest of my life. It´s inhumane”, said Nadal.
