INDIAN WELLS. — Rafael Nadal stepped up his attack on those who label him a drugs cheat, threatening to sue the French ex-sports minister who said the Spanish tennis star failed a drug test.
Nadal said on Sunday he is seeking “justice” and will have his day in court to silence critics like former French minister Roselyne Bachelot.
“I gonna sue her, and I gonna sue everyone who gonna comment something similar in the future, because I am tired of that,” Nadal said on Sunday night at the Indian Wells hardcourt tournament. Bachelot, who served as sports minister between 2007 and 2010, has said that Nadal faked an injury in 2012, when he missed the final six months of the season due to knee problems, in order to hide a positive drug test. — AFP.
