If Rafael Nadal humbly recognized that Novak Djokovic was the best player in the history of tennis in terms of records, the man with 14 Roland‐Garros titles also regretted not having been able to defend all his chances due to numerous injuries since the beginning of his career. A fatality that he is obliged to accept.
“The reality is that I missed four and a half years of Grand Slams because of injuries. But that’s also sport. That’s not why I’m better than Djokovic, because I played less; he had a physique and a way of playing which allowed him to play more than me. You just have to admit, I did what I could. Maybe I’ll come back and win three more Grand Slams, it’s unlikely, that’s the truth (laughs), but in that sense, I can’t blame myself for anything.”said Nadal during an interview on the Spanish channel Movistar.
