Rafael Nadal has revealed that he missed the largest part of Novak Djokovic’s match against Lorenzo Musetti because he was playing Parcheesi, a board game which is very popular in Spain.
Djokovic’s encounter with Musetti took place before the match between Nadal and Jannik Sinner, where the Spaniard won 7-5, 6-3, 6-0 to progress to the French Open quarter-finals.
“I was not able to see much of Djokovic’s game because I was playing Parcheesi,” Nadal said after the match.
“I only saw from 4-4 in the second set until Musetti won the tie break.”
Nadal went on to complain about the artificial lights that were used on the court during his match.
“I don’t know why they put them on so soon,” Nadal added.
“They were bothering me. I asked the referee and he told me that they were on for TV.
“Before we played until nine o’clock without having to put on a light and [matches] were also on TV.”
