Rafael Nadal (I want to thank)

The voice of the Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal when he was speaking of his twelfth victory at Roland Garros after defeating the Austrian Dominic Thiem by 6-3, 5-7, 6-1 and 6-1.

Nadal said this victory has a special flavour for the bad times that have happened in the season because of the injuries.

“It’s been a difficult year in terms of injuries, when you take a continuous blow you end up hurting, I’ve had moments where I’ve been mentally hurt by the things I’ve been physically going through,” he said.

The most moving words from Nadal were for his team, led by his coach, Carlos Moya, who was accompanied by his uncle Toni. “Until quite recently, we didn’t know if we could compete here, and having this trophy with me means a lot, thank you very much for supporting me in the most complicated moments,” he said.
