Toni mentions how his nephew was a well-behaved lad as a child in Rafael Nadal‘s autobiography.
The foundation of everything, he asserted, is respect for others, for everyone, regardless of who they may be or what they may do. It is unacceptable for persons who have achieved success in life to act rudely toward others.

Toni said, “I would have hated my nephew to have turned out any other way, to have performed tantrums on court, to have been churlish with his opponents, with the whole world watching on TV. ” When asked what he would have done if Nadal had been an unruly boy, Toni replied, “I would have done whatever I could to make him behave.
