Rafael Nadal concerned about his left foot, the Miami Heat qualified, big piece on the Giro: the news on a plate

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Tennis – ATP Rome: Nadal, a defeat… and more than that

Rafael Nadal finds neither rhythm nor confidence before Roland-Garros (May 22-June 5). Worse, the state of his left foot worries. The Majorcan first lost in the round of 16 in Rome, this Thursday evening, against Denis Shapovalov (1-6, 7-5, 6-2). Then he explained how the chronic pain he suffers from, on this famous foot, is difficult to manage: “I’m not injured…I live with an injury (…) There will come a time when my head will say stop.

2. Football – Liga: Benzema up to Raúl… just that

323 goals with Real Madrid. This is a hook that makes you dizzy, isn’t it? Karim Benzema joined Raúl in second place in the “White House” scorers’ rankings on Thursday evening, in a wide success at home in La Liga: 6-0 against Levante. Benzema, author of a goal for Madrid already assured of the title, only has Cristiano Ronaldo in his sights. But he has to zoom in to see it: with 450 achievements for the “Merengue”, CR7 has room on KB9.

3. Basketball – NBA: The Heat finishes the Sixers, Dallas has not said its last word

Miami finished the job on the outside. Jimmy Butler’s Heat (32 points) won in Philadelphia on the night of Thursday to Friday, French time, thus composing their ticket for the Eastern Conference finals. Success 90-99, 4-2 on aggregate, for Erik Spoelstra’s men, the first to qualify at this stage of the competition this season.

Joël Embiid missed a lot for the Sixers (20 points at 7/24, with 12 rebounds) while James Harden was very discreet (11 points, including… none after halftime, 9 assists). In the other game of the evening, Dallas managed to push Phoenix to play a “game seven”: 113-86 victory for the Mavs of a Luka Doncic in sight (33 units, 11 rebounds, 8 assists) and, therefore, 3-3 in the series.
