Rafael Nadal commented on why he gave many advice to Team Europe players at the Laver Cup in Geneva last week. The Spaniard said: "I like this sport in general, so I like to play, and I like to support from outside. People who follow sport knows that I normally, when I do the things, I try to do it with the highest intensity possible.
So if I'm here, I'm not here just to play tennis. I'm here to help the team in all the ways. So that's it. I am just trying this. I cannot tell you about the conversation with Fabio yesterday, because I really don't remember (smiling).
Honestly, that's like this. During the matches, a lot of things happens, and you go there, you feel excited to go there. And to tell what you see from outside, you believe that maybe you can help. Maybe not. Maybe you create confusion.
But with everybody from the team, we do what we feel in that moment is best for the team. And we do with our heart. I think we have a great team spirit, and we are happy to go to sleep today with these points, two points of advantage. That's all, knowing that tomorrow is going to be a super-hard day. But here we are to try our best."
