Roger Federer's fitness trainer explains why Nadal gets injured so often

1815.ch asked Roger Federer's longtime fitness trainer Pierre Paganini why Rafael Nadal gets injured so often. The Spaniard has withdrawn from tournaments many times in his career. Paganini clarified that Nadal and his team are extremely professional.

'You cannot have a person who makes mistakes in training and then wins 11 French Opens', said Paganini. 'Each one has a training method. Some training methods lead to bigger risks than others. I do not want to refer to Nadal, but there are players who go through overstress because they do not plan well.

It's about the right thing to do in the right moment for a right reason. You have to know when to push and when to take a break. You have to know when to work and when to work in a more creative way. You always have to be aware of why you are doing something.

Tennis is a very complex sport.' Commenting on the concept of luck, Paganini added: 'You always need luck. But in sports, you also have to look for luck. It can seem a little bit strange, but it's just like this: the passion Federer and Wawrinka life with every day fascinates me.

If I see them training, it's like they are junior players. I feel they are still hungry, they have a healthy aggressive nature.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
