PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal Pre-Tournament Press Conference – Madrid Open 2014

World No.1 and defending champion Rafael Nadal held a press conference before the start of the Mutua Madrid Open tournament today.

“I’ve been training, trying to do things properly, as I’ve been doing always. I hope that it just works out. I have been working since I lost in Barcelona. I tried to train well to come here. If things don’t come out well, we will go to Rome; if things don’t work out there, we will go to Paris. That’s it. You have to continue and continue and continue, and think that things are going to work out for you. That’s what I’m going to try to do every day. When you come from tough moments like this, you come back with a little more intensity to try to be back as soon as possible. That’s what I’m trying to do right now,” said Rafa. Read more here.
