Spain's Davis Cup team captain Sergi Bruguera spoke about Rafael Nadal's unbelievable commitment in the team competition. Nadal won eight matches over a week playing singles and doubles several times. Bruguera said: “Rafa, I don’t know if he is out of this world.
Throughout this week I don’t think there was one day we went to sleep before 3am. One day, I think it was Friday, he went to sleep at 5:10am and then he was playing singles and doubles again (the next day). I have no words for this.
Roberto was at his father’s funeral yesterday and now he was here (in Madrid) giving everything. The mentality, spirit and concentration of the team I have no idea how to describe”. Nadal said: "It has been an amazing week.
There have been a lot of things we went through. The father of Roberto passed away, Marcel (Granollers) yesterday was stiff with his lower back and Pablo (Carreno-Busta) getting injured in the singles. A lot of things happened.
The truth is when you have this kind of moment it is difficult to describe in words because there are so many feelings. So many emotions I have never felt before. I could not be happier. It has been an unforgettable moment in this amazing stadium (Caja Magica). Our team spirit prevailed. We fought hard”.
