The 22-time Grand Slam champion was off the court with a coach for a medical timeout in the second set but came back and played.

Second-seeded Nadal improved to 8-0 in the semi-finals at the All England Club.

In 1969, Rod Laver was the last man to win all four major tournaments in a single calendar year.

Rafael Nadal said he was not sure he would be healthy enough to play Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon semifinals.

In the second set of a five-set victory over Taylor Fritz, Nadal had a stomach ache and needed medical time.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion said he would have “some more tests” on Thursday. He said he has been in pain for almost a week and it intensified during the match.

Asked at his post-match press conference about his chances of playing against Kyrgios on Friday, Nadal replied: “I don’t know. Honestly, I can’t give you a clear answer. “

The two-time Wimbledon champion defeated Fritz 3-6, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (10-4) on center court.

Nadal was given anti-inflammatory drugs during his medical expiration. He said the trainer “just tried to relax the muscles a little bit. But it is difficult. When you have something like that, nothing can be determined. That’s all. “

The Spaniard struggled to win his 14th French Open in June.
