Rafael Nadal: 'I can dress myself now, although I still feel painful'

In an interview to El Larguero Rafael Nadal looked back to his US Open final win over Daniil Medvedev. The Spaniard said: "I spent some very complicated hours with the cramps. I can dress myself now despite I still feel painful.

It was definitely one of my most emotional fans. I had won three US Opens and in 2008 I had not won anything before Wimbledon. And the 2009 Australian Open was the only time I won there, even more special after the dramatic match against Fernando Verdasco.

Also, the final I lost to Novak Djokovic in Australia I think was the most dramatic one than the Sunday one. But it's among the top ones, especially for how the match has been going. From having the match under control I struggled a lot."

On the match against Medvedev, Nadal added: "I would like to see it again, it's a match you have to watch. There were a lot of high level moments. Wuen I will be more recovered mentally and I can analyze things better, it's a match I would like to see.

In the fifth set on 1-0 15-40 Medvedev was not miss any ball and I knew that holding my serve at the start of the fifth set was the key." On his future goals, he concluded: "I train to improve on a daily basis, with the desire of being better. I do not understand training just to train. Improving has always been my goal."
