Rafael Nadal: 'I think I claimed victory because...'

World No.310 Andreea Prisacariu says that Novak Djokovic is a great champion and she is confident that the Serb will find a way to overcome all the challenges he has faced in 2022. Earlier in the year, Djokovic was unable to compete at the 2022 Open.

Australia. Now, Djokovic is set to lose 2,000 Wimbledon points and recent reports from the United States suggest that he will not be allowed to compete at the US Open. As she praised Djokovic, Prisacariu also dropped great words on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Prisacariu described Federer as a very elegant player and called Nadal a hard worker who is an absolute machine on the court. "I believe in Novak and that he will get through all this and get back on the right track," Prisacariu told Sportal.

"I know that he will suffer after Wimbledon and that he will lose his points from last year. I know that he also suffered with the situation at the Australian Open because he was not vaccinated and everything that happened, but I believe in him, he is a great champion.

Rafa and Federer are also great champions, this trio is incredible," added Prisacariu. "Each player has his own special quality about him. Federer is elegant, he has a perfect attitude on the court, Rafa is a hard worker, works harder than everyone and is a machine on the court, while Nole has a little bit of everything from everyone and is a complete tennis player.

With everything that is going on, I hope that he is strong enough to overcome everything and not think so much about the ATP list and the ranking because that is not all. I hope he feels the love of his fans and wears it. At Roland Garros, the public booed him and it doesn't seem right to me, but that's the way things are, that's how the world works.

I think everything will be fine, he knows how to deal with it. He will be number one again."

Rafa wants to play Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal recently stated that the Davis Cup win, which came after an injury, was aided by the crowd who witnessed the contest on the claycourt of the Seville Olympic Stadium.

"The match against Roddick in the 2004 Davis Cup final is one of those that marked my career, and I will never forget it. People remember my performance for the freshness and how young I was, but the real architect of the victory was Carlos Moya, who brought us two points," Rafael Nadal said.

"I think I claimed victory because the crowd was there to support me; it was essential. I had some notable matches in every stage of my career, and this is one of them, especially after that injury. I played at a very high level and deserved the triumph after working hard on the practice court," he added.
