Nadal and co freeze after fire alarm
LONDON: Rafael Nadal and the world’s best men’s tennis players found themselves having to endure a 4am meeting in the freezing cold after fire alarms forced them to evacuate their central London hotel yesterday.
American player Jack Sock described the pre-breakfast meeting of the top players as “15 minutes of freezing, miserableness”. Sock explained how the players were all disturbed in the early hours when the alarms went off at their hotel on the banks of the River Thames.
“Outside, we saw everyone, Rafa (Nadal, the world number one), Dominic (Thiem). Everyone was all bundled up, freezing cold, just wanting to get back inside.” – Reuters
