taking advantage of it to also talk about tennis. Toni Nadal explained during the interview about Rafa: "I haven't spoken to him about a possible retirement. It is speculated but at the moment he has no intention of retiring.

Another thing to underline and take into account is what the doctors say, he is now in more pain than which should be expected. But the momentum is still good for the Majorcan and I am convinced that if he is fit, he will continue."

Toni on Rafael Nadal

The fight for the GOAT and for the greatest number of Grand Slam titles has reopened again after the Australian Open, with the well-deserved and clear triumph brought home by the new world number one Novak Djokovic.

The two are now paired at 22 and the next challenge to get their head back on their own will be in France. Toni Nadal commented on the matter: "Overcoming the Serbian is really difficult, because Nole is fresher than him. I hope Rafa has chances at the Roland Garros his tournament.

Then we'll see what happens after the Paris Open. In the end it's a complicated fight against a great champion like Djokovic. Now it's not about winning this or another tournament, but about continuing to fight and resist. What remains for him is to continue doing what he likes, what he has become accustomed to from an early age.

He will also have to try to take advantage of every opportunity and conquer the titles that may come. Knowing that his career is already extraordinary, he is called upon to this latest effort to continue, as he has for some time."
