In an interview with La Nacion, Diego Schwartzman praised Rafael Nadal's 12th French Open title. "He is the best competitor in history. On Sunday, he lost the second set to Thiem but he does not do anything, he does not make you see if he is doing well or bad if he is injured or frustrated.
Anything. He only shows he wants to win and you can see the competitor he is. What he achieves on the court is very difficult." One of the Nadal's coaches Francis Roig added: "Rafa has something, winning matches playing bad, which is impressive.
When he is in the locker room he opens his bag and he sees what he has on that day. He always tries to do his best with his weapons. He handles them very well." Nadal is taking a rest in Mallorca and he will be back practicing in a few days on grass.
The 33-year-old decided not to play at the Fever-Tree Championships in Queen's this year, before Wimbledon, to give his body some more rest. In the previous years, Nadal used to be forced to withdraw from the event because of injury.
Nadal could be seeded second at Wimbledon. However, if Roger Federer were to win in Halle, the Swiss will be seeded second and the Mallorcan will be seeded third in the draw. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion at Wimbledon. The Serbian defeated Kevin Anderson in the 2018 Wimbledon men's singles final.
