Rafael Nadal was asked what heis the proudest of looking back at this season. The Spanish player, who won two Grand Slam titles this year, said: "Definitely the reaction I had after Barcelona and Monte Carlo, the difficult times I went through in Barcelona before playing the second match.
I am satisfied with my mental reaction and the ability I had to overcome that time." Asked how he deals with being a mirror for other people, Nadal replied: "It's something I do not usually speak about. I always tried to be myself and do things that seem correct to me.
It's the things that my family teached me when I was younger. As the years went on, you are able to see many things around the world and there are somethings you like more and somethings less. I try to copy what I like about the people.
I always say the same thing: you cannot be a mirror, but if the mirror and the inspiration is a bad one, you'd better not take it. If it's good, it's a satisfaction that can be useful for other people that need to go through complicated moments."
Nick Kyrgios will be one of Nadal's opponents at the Laver Cup. The Australian said: “Laver Cup is extremely good fun, I’ve had a lot of great memories. To come together as a team and represent Team World is a special feeling. To be in Geneva, in Team Europe’s home court, I’m excited to get out there”.
