Feliciano Lopez planning to have children with wife in the future

Feliciano López got married to Sandra Gago earlier this year. Asked if they planned to have children, the Spanish player replied: "There are guys who take care of every detail and follow their routines while others travel with their family in tournaments.

I may become a father in a too far away future and I would like my child to come to see me play." On his longevity, Lopez added: "I did not expect to compete at the level I am. Turning 30, many of my friends were getting injured, dropping on the rankings and this age seemed difficult to overcome to me.

I was lucky to have a very good body and genetics to play tennis. It made me suffer a few injuries, so I changed the training regime and I started taking care of my eating regime. For a sportsman, dropping two or three kilos is major and so you start playing better.

Winning the Queen's title at 34 years of age and another time at 37 was very satisfying. I started thinking that it could not happen to me. Feeling competitive physically at this age made me stronger mentally because despite I travel with a physiotherapist that has been taking care of my body for years, I do not recover in the same way after matches.

"You have to handle the kind of sponsor because as a famous person you have a social responsibility. Brands like alcohols or betting companies, you have to be very careful."
