In press conference in Shanghai, a few weeks ago, Rafael Nadal was asked about Novak Djokovic, who had recently said he was not able to enjoy tennis and be happy after Roland Garros title. To this, Nadal replied, 'Life is much more than tennis, for me, personally.
In my life there has always been a lot of very important things away from tennis, and it’s true that tennis has been for the last, I’d say, 20 years an important part of my life, for sure, but in life there is a lot of more important things than just the game.' Rafa also added, 'So happiness is other things: the health of your family, the people who you love and their health and to be close to them.
That, in my opinion, is happiness.' Nadal ended his season after the Shanghai Masters. He will return to the Tour in 2017. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal's doctor: 'He has an inflammation but will be ready for the next season'
