Rafael Nadal spoke to reporters for the first time since he started practicing for the hard court season. Here is the clip.
For those that do not speak Mallorquin, here are some quotes from Rafa:
I love Montreal, the city and the tournament. I won there in 2005 and was also in semis. I like to play there.
The knee is the same as before. I have to keep working to play at a higher level.
We established our calendar. We are doing it to prolong my career.
If I am a little bit worse than others physically, it’s my problem. End there.
I hope we will play a Davis Cup tie breaker in Mallorca. It would be good for us. We have everything here.
I am in Montreal waiting impatiently for you. We are so happy you will be here.
Glad to see you back in action Rafa, hope the training goes well. Missed you at Wimbledon, no one plays quite like you do, x
We miss you!!!
Please stay healthy and happy!!!
