In an interview with Ultima Hora, Jaume Munar spoke about the gap between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and the other players. Munar believes the Tour will be as balanced as ever, as he said: "It's very big, but I think it will be less and less because the new generation is pushing hard.
There are guys who want to win and have the desire of winning. It's something you say less but it takes a lot to prevail over players who belong to the best generation ever." On Nadal's season, Munar added: "Amazing.
I would have liked to know how many times he was given for died and one more year he is at the top of everything. His ability to go past the difficult moments show who he is. He evolved a lot in his game and it was one of his best years.
He is able to win any tournament and he carried the Davis Cup team on his shoulders showing he is a leader. He is special. He does things that a very few people can do." Is it good to have Nadal as a reference point? "It's very good.
You need to copy the good things from the best guys, but you have to create realistic expectations and take the details you can do. Then certain things can be reached by just a few people." Munar achieved a career-high at no.
52 in the ATP singles rankings. The 22-year-old went on to finish the year as world No. 86 with a win-to-loss record of 17-22.
