Rafael Nadal has qualified for the ATP Finals 15 times but he only reached two finals losing both of them, in 2010 and 2013. The Spaniard was asked to find the reasons for it. "It's not bad luck," said Nadal. "We cannot think, even if it's not good luck when we achieve important things, it's not bad luck when you do negative things.
It's part of my career, too. Not today. In the past make much more sense because it's true that I have been playing long and tough seasons, playing a lot of matches and different style of game. So when I have been playing the last matches of the season, my body was tough to hold, no? But this year I have been playing 11 events, not too many.
Just trying to make the things the right way, to finish the season in the health way, healthiest way possible. "And in this case, personally this case, I think was bad luck in terms of the abdominal injury because is an injury that is not like my knees are suffering and I am pushing.
No, it was a bad movement, and at one point and I didn't feel anything before. So is not bad luck probably in the past. This time about the abdominal thing was a bad move. I don't know we can call bad luck. Bad preparation, I don't think was that.
But you can think about reasons, but honestly, I am not the kind of player -- you can think about reasons, but honestly, I am not the kind of person that I am complaining or giving me a hard time why this is happening or why this is not happening.
That's life. Things happen. You need to accept. Sometimes the thing that is happening is very positive as most of the time with me. Sometimes negative. We need to accept both things being and staying calm at all times. That's what I did probably all my career."
