Young tennis stars Stefano Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem left Wimbledon with a handful of other up-and-coming stars earlier this year, trying to hide their disappointment. Metro reports that Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal had some smart words about how to reach highs and lows, and that they are as important to life as they are to sport.
"If you go to court, you can win and lose, you have to accept both things," he said. "Maybe you can not accept that you can win when you go to the pitch, but you can lose too, that's the sport, there's only one winner per week, the rest of the players lose, every time you start . " In the tournament you know that it is difficult that you do not lose this week, because only one will not lose. "
" Knowing that you're fighting for victory, you're doing your very best, "continued Nadal, who looked like the model of professionalism in his recent win over Nick Kyrgios." At the end of the day, the win is natural important and special. But personally, if you do your best, if you do the right things, you will come home and know that you have done as much as you could, you are at peace with yourself.
It looks like Nadal is on a collision course at Wimbledon with his longtime rival Roger Federer, who has also recently been full of grace, to the question of Vogue to Nadal during his latest 73-question interviews Federer magnanimously replied, "He's an intense guy on the field … He's super honest and open with the place and he has a heart of gold.
