In an interview to SportWeek Rafael Nadal commented on how his life will be once he ends his career. The Spaniard admitted that staying off from the game when he was injured was tough in his career. "It's not that easy.
I had my disappointing moments too. But in my life I was lucky, I had a luckier career than I ever dreamed of. Of course, I want to be competitive every week I am on a tennis court, but the day I will stop playing doesn't make me have fear.
There are many other things that make me being an achieved person at home and in the world. I have my Academy and Foundation", said Nadal, who once backed a chance of seeing him as the Real Madrid chief. "I never said I want to be the Real Madrid president, I just answered that question.
And if they ask me if I would like to have that job, my answer cannot be anything but positive. Anyways, Real has a great President that can guarantee a great future to all the fans." On the French Open, Nadal added: "Winning this event 11 times is out of the ordinary, that's not normal but just because I did it, that I am a normal person, anyone can aim to achieve this dream as well." Nadal conquered the trophy in Paris for the first time in 2005 defeating Mariano Puerta in the final.
