Rafael Nadal: 'As a kid I wanted to improve in every training session'

Rafael Nadal attended an event held by Telefonica earlier this week. The Spaniard spoke about his big desire and passion for the sport. "As a kid I lived my day by day, I wanted to improve in every training session and in every tournament.

What really moved was my own excitement, but it's very important to be supported from people who you have next to you and the education you get." Nadal added: "I have to thank Telefonica for believing in the project of the Academy.

I am passionate about the sport and from this passion my desire of continuing to be always connected to it raises. We have to prepare the future and the Academy is a good way to keep working. The goal is to help kids and girls to grow both in tennis and personally.

Giving them a complete education so that they become tennis players and people with values to face the professional development. Now we cannot imagine a future with no technology. And in tennis it happens the same. You need to be aware that the technological change is enormous and that everything that the technology gives doesn't need to be necessarily good.

We do not have to forget that the disconnection from the digital world is a right." Several former tennis players like Alex Corretja, David Ferrer and Alex Corretja with their respective wifes will attend the wedding between Nadal and his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello.

Moya will be next to the singer Carolina Cerezuela, Ferrer with Marta Tornal and Corretja with the model Martina Klein. Only Corretja and Klein are not married, they divorced from respective partners in the past. Ferrer and Marta Tornal got married in November 2015 after a seven-year relationship. Also Richard Mille, Co-Founder of the watch brand sponsorised by Nadal, will be there.
