Tennis: English football club Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye has shared that book by one of the best tennis players of all-time Rafael Nadal helped him to overcome depression.

Cabaye joined Newcastle United in 2011. After playing 52 games for the club in his first season and also playing for France in the Euro Cup 2012, he got severely fatigued and desperate for a break. At the start of 2012-13 season, he started to suffer from fatigue.

The Frenchman thinks that it was depression. He said, “Was it depression? I’m not afraid to say it. It was. But I was reassured after reading books by Jonny Wilkinson and Rafael Nadal in which they both talked about the same thing. They recalled post-competition depression and the need to have a break, and explained that their bodies could not keep up any more.”

Nadal has also faced some bad times during his illustrious career. In his book RAFA, Nadal has shared how he fought with those situations and came back to top again.

Even before winning his first Grand Slam title, the Spaniard had a career threatening foot injury. However, he managed to overcome that and then rose to the top of the world rankings. The 26-year-old had a severe knee injury in 2008 and could not defend his Wimbledon title due to that. However, he made a superb comeback, winning Australian Open at the start of 2009 season.

Then last year again, Nadal could not defend his London Olympics Gold Medal due to the same knee problem. The Spaniard stayed away from the tour for seven straight months, also missing US Open and this season’s Australian Open. However, he made a brilliant comeback once again, capturing three titles in the last two months.

Cabaye also suffered a groin injury during winter. It was a blessing in disguise for him as he went home and spent time with his family and friends. The Frenchman is now back at the club and practicing with his teammates.
