In an interview with Movistar Plus during the Tie Break programme, Francis Roig praised Rafael Nadal's dedication and humility in changing his game, a key aspect of his longevity. 'It's interesting but being the world no.
1 and hearing many comments is not easy because in the tennis world, and I have a lot of experience, there are top 15-20 players who have not evolved and they think that they know everything,' Roig said. 'Rafa likes to discuss, he wants to improve.
When you tell a world no. 1 that he needs to change his habits a little, it's not easy: why change if we are here?' Roig has been coaching Nadal since 2005, now Carlos Moya became the head coach after Toni Nadal's departure.
'Rafael doesn't have to set limits, he still has the desire as on the first day,' Roig added.
