At 39 years old, Stan Wawrinka sees players of his generation retiring from the courts one by one. Andy Murray will probably bow out at the end of the season, and Nadal’s career should also take the same path.

However, the Swiss has not yet decided to put his racket away.

In an interview given to Express Sportthe three-time Grand Slam champion expressed his desire to continue, to inspire young people.

“There are always goals. I think as an athlete it is important to set goals. I also know that the goals I had ten years ago are not the same today, especially after so many injuries and surgeries in recent years. I think it’s also a good example for young people, you want to show them that just because you get older doesn’t mean the passion has to disappear. Remember, when I started playing tennis it was about the game, playing with my friends, being passionate about it and enjoying it, and that’s still the case. I think it’s important to remind young players that when you want to dream of something, when you’re passionate, you have to do it. I think it’s for young people who want to dream of that to understand that no matter what you achieve, no matter how old you are, no matter where you are, you have to do what’s right for your career. »
