Rafael Nadal: I Want to Stay Linked to Tennis When I Retire

MADRID Rafael Nadal said that he would like to stay linked to tennis when he retires as a professional player.

The 19-time Grand Slam winner addressed a press conference in Madrid on Wednesday.

Im in love with the sport and I want to remain linked to it when I retire. Im in the final phase, the 33-year-old said.

Its sad but its what it is, and the academy is to ensure that goal for the future, he added, referring to the Rafa Nadal tennis academy he established in his hometown of Manacor.

The Spanish tennis star also discussed his achievements during the ongoing season, having recently won the US Open Grand Slam and participated in and won the Laver Cup with team Europe.

This year has been very good. Last year too, but I withdrew from many tournaments due to physical problems, Nadal said.

Now, starting from (the tournament of) Barcelona until this moment, Ive been able to play where Ive wanted.

I hope to (be able to) continue following my planned calendar.

For the remainder of the 2019 season, Nadal is going to take part in the Paris Bercy Masters, followed by the ATP Finals in London, then the Davis Cup finals in Madrid.

I do what I like, and when someone does what they like, theres no sacrifice, he continued.

What I am really satisfied with is the ability to overcome, to continue growing even having achieved many things or overcoming moments such as when the body does not respond to you. Ive always done it with the help of the people next to me.
