Rafael Nadal revealed that he is still playing tennis just because he wants to be more successful. Nadal, 35, emphasized that he’s still determined to win the big title, so he’s not sticking for money or fun.
20-time Grand Slam champion Nadal didn’t win the Grand Slam title this year because he skipped Wimbledon and the US Open due to a leg injury. “I still believe that I’m competitive enough to give myself a chance to compete for what I’ve been competing for the last 15 years, otherwise it doesn’t make sense for me personally,” Nadal said. Said by Reem Abulleil.
“I’m not playing for money or just for fun, I’m playing to keep achieving my goals, or at least to enjoy the process of trying to reach my goals. If you can’t achieve it, it’s okay, but motivation and passion are still there. “
Nadal wants to play against Australia
Nadal wants to play at the Australian Open, but there is no guarantee that the Spaniards will play at Melbourne Park. If all goes well, Nadal will hold an ATP event in Melbourne prior to the Australian Open.
“The only thing I want to do or try to do is that things can change a bit, I feel I’m healthy and I can play a tournament in front of Australia and stay there for 20 days. Be prepared for the event, before the Australian Open begins and you practice well, “Nadal said at a pre-tournament press conference at the Mubadara World Tennis Championships.
“I’ve been doing a great job at home, practicing well with the right attitude, concentration and doing a lot to my fitness, so I forgive me for all of this. If you can do that, you never know what’s going on. ”
