According to Moya, “Rafael Nadal will not retire from tennis because of fatherhood.”
Super coach and former Spanish player Carlos Moya recently gave an interview in which he attempted to reassure Rafael Nadal‘s fans about the future of their favorite player. The coach claims that the player will not quit tennis because he is a father. To elaborate, Moya said: “It’s true that players retired at the age of 30–32 and then started families, but back in my day, hardly anyone traveled with their children.
Many tennis players now take their kids along on their trips. I don’t think Rafael Nadal will retire from tennis because of fatherhood; if anything, I think it will give him more drive to keep winning. Even more than usual, Rafa will miss his family and friends back home, especially his nieces and nephews, while he travels the world.”
Nadal pondered the meaning of talent during a lengthy interview “When it comes to talent, people tend to get muddled. It seems to me that talent involves more than just the ability to play well or hit the ball with great force.
Every player brings his own unique set of skills to the table. The point of playing tennis, as with any other sport, is to triumph. Ultimately, whoever has more talent will come out on top.”
Considering Nadal‘s recent return and fatherhood,
In the first half of the season, Rafael Nadal shocked the tennis world.
After taking several months off, the Spanish phenomenon returned to win the Australian Open and Roland Garros, solidifying his status as a true tennis great. By surpassing Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in the all-time Grand Slam standings, the former world number one also put an end to rumors that he might retire.
The fact that the 36-year-old Manacor native had to withdraw from the Wimbledon semi-final due to an abdominal muscle tear doesn’t take away from the impressive 2022 he posted. The veteran of the Iberian Peninsula has already resumed training and plans to return to Canada next month.
The US Open, which he hasn’t competed in since 2019, is one of his primary objectives. Since Djokovic has not been vaccinated against the Coronavirus, it is highly unlikely that he will be able to travel to the United States to play against his eternal rival. The 22-time Grand Slam winner announced his impending fatherhood shortly before Wimbledon.
