Rafael Nadal: 'I love to eat all the things that I don't have to'

Rafael Nadal has a great body and his power has always been a strength to be competitive at the highest level. In the last years the Spaniard is more careful about his diet, and tries to eat chocolate or chips as less as possible.

'I love to eat all the things that I don't have to, but sometimes it's good to eat too, it helps to be happier, so in this world there is space and room for everything, so you have to do it when you can', Nadal admitted in an interview. 'You cannot do it everyday but of course you can do it.' The 32-year-old also recalled his 2007 Wimbledon final loss to the Swiss Roger Federer: 'In my tennis career of course it was a tough one, Wimbledon has always been my dream when I was a kid, so losing that final in five sets, the second one in a row, has been tough, but I kept fighting, I had another chance in the future.

The 2007 loss probably helped me to win in 2008, one of my most important matches.' Asked what suggestion he would give to Spanish generation, Nadal commented: 'I am not really for giving suggestions. I think that the best suggestions is to copy role models, not only in the way to speak.

People who give you good things and who do the right things, copy them and trying not to copy people who create a bad environment, create more issues than usual.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer fumes at Cincinnati Masters umpire: 'Just say: "I am sorry"
