World No. 1 Rafael Nadal held his pre-tournament press conference on Saturday and he said that he is practising for more hours than his knees usually allow him to.
Rafa on his fitness: “Yes, I’m feeling better this year than the last couple of years. But that doesn’t matter if I lose in the first round and the opponent plays better than me. It’s the most dangerous tournament for me… If you’re able to win a few matches, then you have the feeling and everything becomes more logical.”
Rafa on the World Cup: “I am sad. Everybody in Spain is sad for what happened in the World Cup. But my mentality, my motivation going to be always at the top to play here in Wimbledon. So I am not more motivated because Spain lost in the World Cup.”
