The words of Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal cried almost more than Roger Federer at his great rival’s last match: “It was very emotional at the end. It was an honor to be part of this important moment in the history of our sport. Federer and I have shared many moments for many years. Roger is leaving the circuit and an important part of my life is leaving with him.”

“It was unforgettable, even sad. Hard to describe. There were so many emotions, but well, in the end it was a very special day. In the end for everyone there is a beginning and there is an end. That’s life. I am very happy that Roger, after so many difficult moments, was able to say goodbye on the court. I personally knew it was difficult for him to live the way he was. I am happy that he said goodbye, happy that he got the moment he deserved in front of so many people and that the world got to see him say goodbye on the court. That to me is something he really deserved without a doubt because he is an icon, one of the most important in the history of sports in general.”

“I am sure that sooner or later Roger and I will be on the court again to play together,” the Mallorcan finally confided to Marca.
