Medvedev enters meltdown as Nadal rallies for O2 win

Rafael Nadal didn't take too kindly to a question about his recent marriage at the ATP Finals in London.

Rafa Nadal is now the number one-ranked player in the world, and any time he loses a match, some hard questions will follow.

For once world No.1 Nadal's trademark fighting spirit seemed to have deserted him but he saved a match point at 1-5 with a superb drop shot and was suddenly re-energised.

Nadal: "How many years have you been with your".

The young Russian was comfortably leading Nadal 5-1 in the decisive set but eventually fell to a cruel defeat.

The match was a re-run of the pair's epic US Open final which Nadal won, although in London both went into the meeting knowing it was likely make-or-break having lost their opening group encounters, with Nadal being beaten by German youngster Alexander Zverev and Medvedev falling to Greek rival Stefanos Tsitsipas earlier in the week.

Nadal took the next game to edge 6-5 in front, although Medvedev finally regained his composure to steady the ship at 6-6 and take the match to a decisive tie-break.

Venice mayor: Climate change to blame for 'apocalyptic' flooding
Water levels receded slightly on Wednesday to 145 centimeters, but were expected to rise back to 160 centimeters during the day. Other tourists in Venice shared photos and videos on social media today showing people wading through the flooded streets.

"At 5-1, in that moment, what you think is probably in five minutes you are in the locker room, because that's the more normal thing".

The Spaniard has withdrawn from each of his last two tournaments with hand and abdominal problems but refused to blame his defeat to Zverev on injury.

Still, Nadal insisted there was nothing wrong with him physically. "Then to win this match is a combination of a lot of things: luck, some mistakes of Daniil, some good moments by myself at the end".

In any case, Djokovic will only reach the weekend's knock-out stages if he beats Roger Federer on Thursday night in a rematch of this summer's dramatic Wimbledon final.

"Knowing that I would not be at my 100% in terms of feelings, in terms of movement, in terms of confidence or hitting the ball, I needed my best competitive spirit this afternoon, and I was not there in that way", Nadal said.
