Rafael Nadal: I'm mentally destroyed

Mackenzie McDonald surprised everyone after winning over Rafael Nadal in the second round of the Australian Open. At the press conference after the match, Nadal revealed that the problem was a hip. It is an injury that he had problems with in the past.

”I don’t know what’s going on, if it’s muscle, if it’s joint,” he said, as quoted by indianexpress.co.uk “I have history in the hip. I had to do treatments in the past, address (it) a little.

Was not this amount of problem. Now I feel I cannot move”. Nadal did not want to give up and did not want to retire. “I didn’t want to leave the court with a retirement. Better like this at the end. I lost. Nothing to say.

Congratulate the opponent,” he said.

Rafael Nadal: I'm mentally destroyed

The Spaniard stressed that he was 'mentally destroyed' “Sometimes it’s difficult to accept. Sometimes you feel super tired about all this stuff in terms of injuries,” Nadal continued.

“Just can’t say that I am not destroyed mentally at this time, because I will be lying”. Nadal is a tennis player who has had problems with injuries for many years. Despite this, he never wanted to give up and wanted to break records.

He is a true example of a fighter. “It’s a very simple thing: I like what I do. I like playing tennis. I know it’s not forever. I like to feel competitive. I like to fight for the things that I have been fighting for almost half of my life or even more,” he said.

“Of course it’s tiring and frustrating (for injuries) to be a part of a lot of my tennis career, (focusing) on recovering process and trying to fight against all this stuff all the time. But I accept it quite well during all my tennis career, and I was able to manage it well”.
