Rafael Nadal shares retirement wish and admits Roger Federer quitting tennis was ‘hard'


Share post:


“I think he is one of the great icons in the history of sport in general, so it was a hard moment, and not only as a rival and partner but as a tennis lover.

“It is that the same thing happened with Pau (Gasol) or Zidane and it will happen to me with [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano [Ronaldo].

“They’re people you’ve grown up with for a lifetime, sharing moments and watching them on TV, making them almost like family. And when they retire, like Roger did, you know you’re never going to see them play again.

“As for my retirement, I don’t visualise it for a simple fact, because I’m not one to try to guess, predict or prepare the future, because things change very quickly, right?

“I know that moment is closer than last year, without a doubt, and two years ago. That is pure logic.
