NADAL: “Age players will be harder to come back after the quarantine”

Earlier, several young players said that the quarantine and pause in the competition will benefit age “Big three” in world tennis, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

However, Nadal, who recently turned 34 years old, this opinion does not agree:

“The longer the pause, the more age the body is more difficult to return to 100% form, when compared with young players. Therefore, I do not feel that this break gives us an advantage over the young players.

But at the same time, of course, is experience. In the past I have just had the experience, when there was an injury so I in some way have an idea how to return to the game. Can’t say if I will now play longer because of this break. We’ll never know.

I look forward to returning to the Tour and want to continue to play for several more years. Over the past few years, I think that I learned how to show good tennis, at the same time without the need to spend a lot of matches. I do understand how to be ready to compete at the highest level without having much match practice.

I am sure that I will have time to prepare and organize your calendar. I hope to be able to be competitive immediately after the return. I don’t feel that this break gives players age advantage.”
