In an interview to Marca the Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro spoke about her country's Davis Cup team winning the title in Madrid last month. Suarez Navarro, who will retire from the professional tour in 2020, said: "I expected Roberto Bautista's for his characters and because he had gone through a similar thing the year before and some days after he played the French Open.
As for Rafael Nadal, I do not know what to say. He has a commitment with himself and the other teammates. He is very good. He mentally faces everything and it's not easy for him because everyone expects him to win." Asked if players texted her for her announcement, Suarez Navarro replied: "Yes.
People did not expect it. I told it to Garbine before announcing it, but she was the only one knowing it. Someone could understand it even if they did not know it first hand. I was surprised by the message of some opponents, who respect you.
For example, Kristina Mladenovic or Sara Errani." Asked about her best career moments, she replied: "When I reached the Miami final, which enabled me to crack the top ten rankings for the first time. When I won Doha. The first time I played the French Open.
The night with Venus in Australia. When I reach the WTA Finals final with Garbine..." What will be her last tournament? "I have not thought about it because it will depend on how the year goes. I will decide it after the Tokyo Olympic Games. The US Open could be a good tournament to retire."
