Baptist eats at the Big Three table

The Castellon has already had flashes this season, which has beaten twice Djokovic, his rival on Friday in the semifinals of Wimbledon.


Spanish tennis is accustomed in recent times to beat records, usually always with the same protagonist: Rafa Nadal. In this case, the Spaniard returns to appear at the scene of the record, but he does so accompanied by Roberto Bautista. For the first time in history there are two Spaniards in the male semifinals of Wimbledon. I emphasize the genre, because Arantxa Sánchez and Conchita Martínez already achieved this feat in 1995. Two other greats of our sport. That Bautista enters the penultimate round of a Grand Slam with Nadal, as did Pablo Carreño in the US Open of 2017, produces a special joy, because it confirms that Rafa is not alone. Nobody will match his exploits, at least on this planet, but our tennis is still alive.

It is true that Bautista is 31 years old, that he is not a kid, but that does not take away any merit. Quite the opposite. The Castellon have already had flashes this season, in which has beaten twice Novak Djokovic, his rival on Friday. Suddenly, Bautista is seen in the major leagues, next to that Big Three that complete Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal in the other semifinal. The classic of tennis returns, the great rematch of Roland Garros. Do not miss it because, as Rafa says, there are not many more opportunities left. It is not unreasonable, even, that we have a Spanish final, because neither of them finds it strange to bend the rival they will face. In the junior table, by the way, there are also two Spaniards in the rooms: Carlos Gimeno and Carlos Alcaraz. Spanish Wimbledon.
