A new Rafael Nadal will not exist, says David Ferrer

In an interview to Marca David Ferrer spoke about the Spanish tennis. Ferrer said: "Bautista almost cracked the top ten. Carreno Busta was there, got injured and is coming back. We also have younger players in sight like Carlos Gimeno and Carlos Alcaraz.

They need to go their way, the path is a long one. But the most important thing is that in Spain there was always a new generation. If you ask me if there will be a new Rafa Nadal, I tell you there won't. You will never have one like him.

Many parents thinks that there will be a Nadal and instead there won't be. Another David Ferrer may be there. We have very good academies. There is the Juan Carlos Ferrero one. There a lot. There have always been a lot. We have everything.

That's very important for the Spanish tennis." On the new Davis Cup format, ferrer added: "Gerard Pique being involved is very good because he is a very well prepared person and is also involved in sports world.

As a sportsman he can listen at players like he does in football. I know he is very involved, motivated and excited. Through Pique, people speak more about the Davis Cup and there is a bigger attention." On his feelings ahead of the Masters Cup in Marbella, Ferrer concluded: "I feel well because I keep playing tennis when I can.

Obviously I am not doing like before because that's something logical. But I am excited to compete without the pressure I felt when I was playing."
