“Today, what I want is to get back to normality, for everything to go well with my personal life, which is the top priority, and then organise my life in the right way. Have peace of mind in my personal and professional life.”
Nadal has struggled with abdominal injuries over the last couple of months. He was visibly emotional in the aftermath of friend Federer’s final outing.
The 22-times Grand Slam champion added: “It has been a difficult day to handle every single thing, and at the end everything became super emotional. For me, it has been a huge honour to be a part of this amazing moment of the history of our sport. When Roger leaves the tour, an important part of my life is leaving too.”
