Rafael Nadal insider reveals Roger Federer plan after French Open success

[ad_1]

Nadal picked up Grand Slam No 18 by winning the French Open title yesterday.

The Spaniard needed three hours to find a way past tricky Austrian Dominic Thiem in the final.

He will spend the next few weeks before Wimbledon recovering from a brutal clay campaign.

And during that downtime Nadal is set to make a plan to catch Federer’s major tournament haul.

“Now the most important thing is to have the title here in Roland Garros,” Toni Nadal told Th National.

“I’m sure in the next weeks he can think about being only two behind Roger.”

At 33 years old, Nadal still has plenty of time to close the gap on 37-year-old Federer.

But uncle Toni has warned of the NextGen stars who are edging closer to breaking the dominance of Federer, Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

“We know, or I think he knows, that every year is more difficult to win something,” he added.

“Today was difficult with Dominic, and every year new generation people are coming who can play hard.

“They are really good and Rafael would be one year older, it’s not easy, but we can see.”

However, Nadal claims to not be too bothered about catching Federer’s record.

“Being honest, I never complain myself much, and I never tried to think about, Well, am I gonna catch Roger or not?” he said. “Being honest, I am not very worried about this stuff.

“You can’t be frustrated all the time because the neighbour has a bigger house than you or a bigger TV or better garden. That’s not the way that I see the life, you know.

“And I just try to do my way. I feel very lucky about all the things that are happening to me.

“And if, at the end of my career, I am able to win a couple of more Grand Slams and be closer to Roger, will be unbelievable. If not, for me, still unbelievable, no?”
