Emotional Rafael Nadal recalls 2008 Wimbledon final against Roger Federer

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.'
