Rafael Nadal's commitment to Davis Cup is the key, says Gerard Pique

In an interview to AS the Davis Cup investor Gerard Pique spoke about how important is that Rafael Nadal got committed to the finals stage that will take place in Madrid in November. "It's the key because he is one of the best guys in tennis history and he won the Davis Cup several times.

I think that like Andy Murray he is a great ambassador of the values and he shows them in the best possible way. The Davis Cup final will be played for two years in Madrid and it's very important to count on Rafa. He always showed availability and how happy he would be to play.

Having players like him is great news." He also spoke about a potential clash between Spain and Italy: "It would be so nice. Between Spain and Italy, there is always a show and Berrettini is a player I like a lot.

I watched his match against Gael Monfils, what a fighter, a passionate show. A fight between gladiators like Nadal-Berrettini in the Davis Cup Finals would make every fan emotional. I am sure the Italian team will do well, very good players all at a high level, and with a Berrettini like this, you will enjoy.

Younger guys now are very strong, also Daniil Medvedev. They are already trying to beat guys like Roger, Rafa and Novak." On Andy Murray possibly playing, Pique concluded: "I thought about it and I like the idea because he is one of the best guys and he represents many values in tennis.

He is an athlete who I liked seeing throughout his career and I am amazed by his attempt to come back again, with all the effort that means to recover from a hip injury. For me, my team and the Davis Cup, it's great news that it can happen."
