Rafael Nadal beats Borna Coric in First Round of US Open 2015 despite Bad Health

A bad stomach and dehydration couldn’t stop No. 8 seed Rafael Nadal from winning the first round of the US Open against 2015 at Arthur Ashe Stadium against 33rd ranked 18 year old Borna Coric, the youngest member of ATP’s top 50.


Down on his luck for the past few months and out of the top 3 seeds for the first time since 2004, Nadal has a record of 21 victories from 22 matches at the US Open and also holds 14 majors titles. This match too seemed to go awry in the third set and towards the beginning of the fourth, the score looked bleak, but with a show of power, Nadal swung into action and sailed into a 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 victory, his first U.S. Open win since 2013 (he was out of last year’s tournament due to a right wrist injury).


Talking about his failing health during the match and the subsequent recovery in the fourth set, Nadal said, “I had some problems. I was sweating a lot. I recovered (a) little bit. I played, again, more aggressive.

Coric who had won his previous match with Nadal last year, shook hands with this year’s winner, Nadal, who will play in the second round against Diego Schwartzman, and said, “It was the first time in my life on such a big court. I played a solid match, so very good.”
