    So Mutua Madrid did not go mixed singles. Wasted opportunity if you ask me.

    Gael Monfils @Gael_Monfils
    Sadly I will not be able to participate in the Virtual Mutua Madrid Open due to conflicting rights between streaming platforms. I wish all the best to all players and I hope to be able to play next time.

    Thumb injury? Carpal tunnel? Did he hurt himself in the exhibition event before the tournament?

    Feel confident in saying the issue is that Gael is on Twitch and must have a deal with them and when this started it was kinda on the fly. Credit to Mutua Madrid and Feliciano, they have grown it considerably since it was first announced and there are a number of sponsors now. And it's now going to stream exclusively on Facebook Gaming, which is a Twitch competitor. It was definitely not promoted as that initially, that is a very recent development, so Gael's involvement likely only became an issue in the last few days when that was announced.

    BBC Sports (and then quite a few based on them) apparently ran with this joke like it was a real tennis match.


    Feliciano López
    @feliciano_lopez

    Guys, I was joking, of course... I said Rafa had a back injury from the pressure of playing on the PS4. We might need some sense of humour please!By the way he has shown great skills playing virtual tennis
