On Rafael Nadal, Jaume Munar said: "With Rafa I have a relationship before the Academy.
When I was 15 years old, he was a bit like a father for me on Tour. Now more than a work teammate I think he is almost a friend. I spend time with him on and off the court and I am learning a lot from him." Analyzing his season in an interview to Eurosport, Munar added: "I started the year very well, winning ATP matches, I played for many weeks but I did not achieve any great result.
I headed into the US Open getting a very few wins over the last three months, so we decided to get back to the Challengers to gain confidence and points."
