Young Argentinian soccer player Giuliano Galoppo said he was inspired by Rafael Nadal at a particular moment in his life when introducing him as the new player of San Paolo, a militant team in the Brazilian Soccer League.
Galoppo, who began his professional career with the Argentine club Banfield in 2018, has signed with San Paolo in recent days. Nadal, a 22-time Grand Slam champion, has a long history of injuries, but still managed to achieve surprising success and put himself in a position of strength to become the greatest player in tennis history.
Galoppo himself has had a long break from injury and believes the best is yet to come for him. Galoppo told: “Nadal is very important. I like him a lot because I see his ability to recover from mistakes, his mental strength, and this is an aspect that helps to lead the way.
At the time I had a long injury that I managed to overcome, which is why I feel identified with it, I feel very strong, and it’s a great inspiration that I keep seeing day by day. “
Nadal’s come back
After winning the first two Grand Slams of the season, Rafael Nadal was determined to win Wimbledon as well and continue his race towards the Calendar Grand Slam. Unfortunately for him, he suffered an abdominal tear at the All England Club that forced him to retire from the semi-final against Nick Kyrgios.
Nadal has chosen to withdraw from the rest of the tournament in order not to risk aggravating the injury and put himself in a position to remain out for several months. Now, however, the Majorcan seems to have recovered: he is back to training and is preparing to play the Masters 1000 in Montréal, starting on 7 August.
“Nadal really wants to come to Montreal and his hotel rooms are already booked,” Canadian tournament director Eugene Lapierre revealed. The Spaniard has been warming up his engines since last week and all the clues point to seeing him on stage at the National Bank Open.
