Rafael Nadal Receives Treatment After Smacking Himself In The Face | 2022 US Open | Eurosport Tennis
at this stage he's got any realistic hopes of getting back into this match nice hands what's happened here I think he's hits

himself

here is it yeah hit his

face

here the racket was it nosebleed definitely hits there yeah he's he's hit his nose here in the dark raised

himself

and he noticed it immediately so he's just come over and lying down here I mean that's gonna have completely caught the uh the trainer unawares but clearly it's got to get operated on he can't continue to play and so that's been sorted out it will be foreign straight over there and everything to check that he was okay chatting with him here it is again so he just comes through again here so reaching and then you see the racket has just come back off the grounds off the court and it's hit him Plum on the nose it's unfortunate to see here stretching so it bounces down off the hardcore and straight back into his

face

very nasty I mean he's actually done really well there could have been straight in the eye I might have actually hits him on the side of the eye there and the socket the bone rather really it's his nose that's taken I think the full grunts of the uh the force of the racket coming up and naturally of course it's got to be a medical time out here all right so I look here just to stop bleeding here on the nose I mean that'll flare up a bit it'll inflame a bit as well the bridge of the nose stop bleeding first of all the iodine solution is similar here as well but I've all just looked to uh the bleeding there and let it Jill up very unfortunate one and really unlikely injury in a sense there see again with the after he's stretching here of course on the defensive nothing unusual about that but comes through and then look at the bounce straight back into the face really really awkward uncomfortable it has to be immediately seen too there was no way he's going to be able to continue with that and that Grace immediately there just drop the Racket and have to get it seen to halfway through this medical timeout now look at that graze and the uh the right side of the nose the bridge to the side of the bridge in the nose there for Rapha haven't seen that too concerning I think they're just gesturing here how unlikely that was in a sense that the racket's gone down there and just how it bounces straight back up into the face the edge of the racket frame plaster over the top here provides some protection and also allow the uh the wounds to harden scan up as well to start as you said to start to set he was very good there was using all his experience for effort to go back over but naturally be a little bit shaken by that as well I mean it's very very close to the eye where that the frame of the racket's gone up there and hits him on the face I can buy that but it seems okay now he he's just so experienced in situations knew exactly what to do and as always the guy that he is says thank you to the trainer there for the work that he's done you can uh seems all right to continue here now
