Nadal on Big 3’s secret to success
In a recent interview with José Luis Clerc from ESPN, the 19-time Grand Slam champion discussed his successes on clay and Roland Garros: “I always say that when a record is broken, the tennis player they take it from must be happy.

“The reality is that they are already there. There are many young players fighting for the maximum and winning important things. They have not been able to do it in Grand Slam, also because we have not left, so now there is a very nice fight between young people and” Old men “that I hope will last as long as possible in time.
