The Rafa Nadal Foundation has opened an educative centre in Palma de Mallorca for kids and young people who live in social disadvantaged situations.
(AFP) – Rafael Nadal cast doubt Thursday on whether he could win another Grand Slam after his long reign as French Open champion ended and he slid down the rankings during the worst year of his career.
Rafa said he was working hard to return to form and was happy with the way the year ended after a resurgence at the World Tour Finals in London last month.
But asked whether he could clinch another major title to add to the 14 Grand Slams he has already accumulated, Rafa was unconvinced: “I don’t know when that will happen and I don’t know if that’s going to happen. The only thing I know is I’m working very hard to try to get the opportunities.”
Rafa was speaking after hitting balls with youngsters during a coaching session in the Indian capital, where he plans to open an academy for talented players.
“This year has been not the best season. (But) In the last three months, I finished much better and I’m happy the way I’m playing now. I need to keep going the same way that I finished the 2015 season,” he added.
