Rafael Nadal's comment on the 2020 season
Here are his statements: "I think that the Lockdown did not help anyone but it was right since it was one of the few ways to avoid the spread of the virus. For those involved in the world of tennis it was really hard, especially then with a preparation where no one knew when he would return to play.
In the end, with a clear goal, we managed to work correctly, avoiding injuries and adapting to various needs. When the body stops for a long time, all this does not help and I had to work hard to recover both my physical condition and especially my tennis.
In general, if you ask various tennis players, they will all give you different opinions based on age. It was difficult as I am a very active person and staying in a house doing nothing is really hard. However, I dedicated my time to helping people in need, the campaign I did with the Spanish Red Cross and with Pau Gasol was really very important.
We are happy with the success it has had and with the money we have been able to raise to help everyone." Finally he also added: "The positive thing is that the people closest to me are fine and have been fine, no one has suffered from the pandemic.
In general the first thing is the health of my people, we all know that it has been a hard year and certainly this year will have negative consequences for the future." Rafael Nadal will come back on the court for the upcoming Australian Open 2021, with should be start in Melbourne on 8 February 2021.
