Rafael Nadal came out very quickly to deny the statements made by Alexander Zverev regarding his future. Barely a day after the German tennis player had assured that he believes that the greatest Grand Slam winner would retire in the next edition of Roland Garros, in case he emerges victorious, Nadal assured that he does not know the reason for these statements and assured that he would It goes through the mind to hang up the racket for the next few months.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t usually give my opinion six months from now,” said the Spaniard before his participation in the Australian Open. “I have a very good relationship with Zverev, but not enough to confess to him if out this way.

I am here to play tennis, have a great 2023 and try to keep fighting for all the things I have fought for throughout my entire sports career. I’m not thinking about my retirement,” he added. In his time on the professional circuit, the Spaniard and the Teutonic player have crossed a total of 10 chances, seven of which have been in Nadal’s hands and only three for Sascha.

Rafa has already been seen upset at the beginning of the year in more than one press conference, where he regrets that they keep asking him over and over again when he will end up putting an end to his legendary career in the ATP.

For now, at 36 years of age, the Spaniard seeks to increase his record of Grand Slams won, which currently stands at 22. How much time do you think Rafael Nadal’s career has left?

I am happy that I was able to win against a great player this afternoon,” he said. Explaining what transpired, the former World No. 1 was mostly just amused about what happened. “Not distracting, just a funny situation. But normally, I have the number of the racquets under control, so I say, I need the string,” Nadal said.
