Former World No. 3 David Ferrer says like all other athletes, the current shutdown and uncertainty over the resumption of the tennis circuit is not easy for Rafael Nadal but adds that the Spaniard has the common sense and sensitivity to deal with the situation.
Speaking to Radio Marca, Ferrer says, "I imagine that waiting and uncertainty is not easy at all and even less for Rafa who is very competitive, however, if someone has common sense and sensitivity for this situation it is Rafa Nadal.
Within those who are affected we are privileged, we cannot complain. " The Spaniard also celebrated his birthday on April 2nd and says it was a different kind of celebration. "It is a different day because we are at home, because the situation we live in is very complicated and very hard.
You always have close people who have infected loved ones and it is difficult to carry but you have to see the good side, I I can be with my family and we are healthy. " Ferrer adds that he finds it difficult for the season to resume in 2020.
"I see it difficult for the season to start this year. Tennis is a global sport and although they are recovering in some countries it will be worse in others. I see it as very difficult to have the situation 100% controlled.
Also, when all this is over there will be a moment of adaptation, it will not be everything as before. " Finally, the Spaniard adds that the cancelation of so many tennis tournaments, including Wimbledon, is hard but the important thing is that it will return in 2021.
"I know it is very hard and it is not easy because it accepts everyone but if there is no Wimbledon this year there will be next year, the important thing is that this happens."
