In the post-match press conference on Monday, Rafael Nadal was asked to comment on the Novak Djokovic visa situation. Here’s what he had to say.

By the way, I’m quite tired of that subject. When he won the first trial I said here that the justice had spoken. Yesterday the decision was different. I will never be against what the justice says.

What I believe it would be better for the sport would be having all the best players here, including Djokovic. Another thing is what happened. I think the situation is very clear now.

Always had a good relationship with my rivals. Life is better that way. With Novak it’s been like that all my life. I wish him all the best. The situation was a mess and he wasn’t the only one who did things the wrong way. But he is one of the responsible too.
