Rafael Nadal: ´I´ll Know When The Day of Farewell Arrives. Federer is Probably the Best Player Ever´

Another great interview by Rafael Nadal. First of all the Spaniard talked about the future retirement. "No one knows how many years has left - said Nadal to Tennis Magazin - It depends on some factors. How fit are you? How is your mental state? The only thing I know today is that I am still very motivated to continue.

I will know when the day of farewell arrives. But I think I am far away from it." About his body: "My body is as old as it is. I constantly pay attention to it. I know how you feel when you are injured or you feel pain.

When I compare my current situation to the previous years I think I am doing well." About his season: "During the first part of this season I played in a terrible way. Then it was a little of ups and downs. I have to get more consistent, no doubt on that.

I am working on it. One day I am happy with my level, the next day I'm not able to play the way I want to." About his game: "I have to play well my game, I don't have to change it! Right now my priority is to win matches even when I don't play well.

I have always managed to do that in the past." On a possible change of coach: "Nothing is impossible and no one can predict the future. But we (Uncle Toni and him) have been together since I was three years old.

It speaks for itself that we will remain together. I don't see any reason to change something." And then, speaking about his Academy that will open on May 2016 in Manacor, the Spaniard said: "There's a tennis center for kids and a project for the future but it has nothing to do with my current career.

I am not going to stop playing tennis because of it." IN THE NEXT PAGE NADAL SPEAKS ABOUT FEDERER AND DJOKOVIC
