The FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was asked if he plans to invite the Real Madrid President Florentino Perez to the Davis Cup. Pique said: "Of course I will invite him, one thing is football and another one is tennis, I will invite all the Real Madrid and Atletico players to join the show.
You have to separate one thing and the other, one thing is when we are involved in football and rivalry and other things is to look from outside, and I am sure Madrid and Atletico players will want to see Rafa Nadal and the Spanish team trying to win their sixth title."
Pique does not plan to play for the Spanish national team again: "It was very important for me and I am interested at what they do but I wanted to dedicate the last years of my career to my club because they deserve it and I do not have too much time left, I see every year if it was the last one and I will enjoy it a lot.
I approached tennis with respect and humility." Pique also spoke about the importance of the Davis Cup for him: "With 24 hours and seven days a week of commitment. It's the project of my life and I think we are in a good way.
With Barcelona I play and train all days, but as soon as I have two or three free days like now I take an air flight to be in New York", said Pique, who is still competing at the highest level in football despite he is thinking about his post-career time making such big investments like this one.
