Forget the titles. Rafael Nadal’s true greatness occurs outside the tennis courts.
Yesterday after his win over Dominic Thiem, our champ revealed that he was recently called upon by Andy Murray to offer advice on how to recover and return from serious injury.
Here’s what Rafa said:
Doesn’t matter if we are rivals, for me the friendship is before the tennis court. If any player have any doubts about the injuries or treatment that I do, I am always very happy to tell them my experience. I tell him the things that I think worked for me. Then, of course, he has his group and he will decide.
I have been in that situation. I know how tough and frustrating is when you work every day and you don’t see the light of how to improve. You don’t see any improvements. But then one day trying things, trying treatments, one day things are going better, no? That’s what I really hope about him because he is important, very important, for our tour.
