Ten years have passed since Rafael Nadal's first Wimbledon success over the Swiss Roger Federer in an epic final, but many people have a lot of memories from that match. And the Spaniard as well. 'It is one of the most emotional matches I ever played, I was coming from two consecutive (Wimbledon) finals and it was a very important step forward for me, it opened me a new way. Winning, losing is part of the sport, but that was a key moment', recognized Nadal.
When asked about the chance to face Federer again at the All England Club in a championship clash, Nadal stated: 'I can't think about it now. Me and Federer have not been playing each other a Wimbledon final since 2008. I have to prepare well and live day by day.'
Speaking about the fight for the No. 1 ranking position, the 32-year-old clarified: 'I won't risk and I won't seek the No. 1. If I am, perfect, but at this stage of my career the goal is to be healthy as most weeks as possible, be happy in what I do and have the option to compete every week.'
