Nadal: “Many doubted that he could play so many years; me too”

Two days after his victory against Medvedev in the US Open final, the Mallorcan admits that he has not yet recovered from the nearly five-hour marathon

Rafael Nadal is already resting at his home in Manacor after having conquered the United States Open, the fourth success in New York and the nineteenth Grand Slam of his career. The Mallorcan starred alongside the Russian Daniil Medvedev in one of the most epic Grand Slam finals in recent times. Becoming the player who wins the most over thirty does not seem to give relevance to the possibility of catching up with Roger Federer, the tennis player with the most majors in history. Twenty large trophies illuminate the Swiss career. Nineteen, after winning in New York, that of the Spanish.

The Balearic recovers from the effort and emotions experienced after the victory against Medvedev. Don’t look at the calendar. Only rehabilitate the body after exhaustion.

The challenges have become a personal matter for the Spanish player who, at 33, still acknowledges having “ambition and motivation” in tennis. Of course, it continues its path regardless of any “spirit of revenge” and regardless of what can be said about it.

“Just as many people doubted that I could play for so many years, so did I. I doubt now and I have always doubted. But here I am and in the end it is a day-to-day issue. I am happy with what I do. It allows you to train daily and I enjoy the competition … “, says Nadal, who wants to be, above all, competitive. “What motivates me and my goal is to aspire as much as possible to the maximum time possible,” says Nadal, who considers the Masters Cup that he has not yet conquered and the new Davis Cup, which is running, as new and immediate challenges. next November in Madrid, as the culmination of a dream year.
“I am physically touching”

Nadal acknowledges being “fatigued” after the waste and the physical demands of the victory against Daniil Medvedev to add his fourth success in New York and raise the number of accumulated Grand Slam to 19. “I am tired; the truth is that I am not recovered. I am physically touched,” admits the Balearic tennis player in a telephone meeting with the media that has accompanied him in New York.

The recovery after the effort and the emotions lived hours after the battle with Medvedev now dominate the interest of Nadal, who prefers to park temporarily, the definition of what remains of the calendar. Still, the Tokyo Olympics take on a somewhat more distant challenge. At 33 years old and only a major to equal Roger Federer as the tennis player as the largest number of Grand Slams in history Nadal prefers to wait to see “how his physique evolves” in the coming days and to speak with his coaching staff to define his next challenges.

But the Balearic Islands have two appointments underlined in their “immediate calendar”: the new Davis Cup and the London Masters Cup, which ends the circuit and is the only renowned tournament that still resists it. “Asia remains to be defined a little,” admit Rafael Nadal. “Beyond that, everyone knows what an Olympic Games represents to me and I will do my best to try to reach the best in Tokyo with the best possible preparation.”
The Tokyo Games

The Olympic event is one of the challenges for Spanish in 2020. They start on July 24 in Japan, right in the middle of Wimbledon and the start of the North American circuit. “But some Games are something special”, insists the Balearic Islands, who won the gold medal in those of Beijing 2008 and that in the last ones, in Rio 2016, was fourth, on the doorstep of the medals. Nadal is aware that it must be dosed to continue at the highest level. In the final stretch of a great season, with two more Grand Slam on his service record, he takes on the projects as challenges. “Some Olympic Games do not mark all year in tennis as in other sports, such as athletics, and it is difficult to plan specifically for it and it complicates the calendar a lot,” says Nadal, who recalls that he always lives the Olympic events with a great delusion.

Rafael Nadal regrets that Spanish tennis has not been able to take full advantage of the good performance offered in recent decades. The player from Manacor is clear that in Spain the “failure” of not taking advantage of the high level of their players has been committed. And that this has served to attract resources to support young people. “We have been doing things for many years that are going to be very difficult to repeat. In the end what has been achieved in the last 25-30 years is hardly repeatable, by means, by economic capacity … in the end we are competing with other countries that have an economic capacity that multiplies by infinity practically “with respect to Spain, recalls Nadal.

If the end of confinement seems almost to have been reached, it is not too late to have fun. In every sense of the term.

If the sales of sex toys exploded at the announcement of containment, it is mainly on the side of consumer brands and hegemonic resale sites. Leaving community businesses like IEM, Boxxman, or Rob Paris who have had to close their physical store, and lack online visibility, on the carpet.
