Thanks to his victory over Casper Ruud in the Roland-Garros final, Rafael Nadal and postponed his 14th trophy at the Porte d’Auteuil. A XXL success that he owes a lot to his family. In fact, Rafael Nadal believed that his success was largely linked to the fact that he lived with his relatives in Majorca. Hence his refusal to move to Barcelona, as the Spanish federation proposed to him.
Despite his 36 years, Rafael Nadal remains the undisputed and unquestioned master of Roland-Garros. By then he had already won thirteen times Grand Chelem français, the Majorquin presented with a different status this year.

Thus, the Spaniard was not really the big favorite of the competition when he entered the fray against Corentin Moutet (wins 6-3, 6-1, 6-4). But in terms of competition, Rafael Nadal assumes its dominance, until its 14th silver salad rises on Sunday, June 5, after being beaten Casper Ruud in the final of Roland-Garros.

If he didn’t seem to have had too much trouble against the Norwegian, the 36 -year -old veteran, despite all, had to force his tennis at times, pushed into his latest setbacks by some opponents. Against Botic van de Zandschulp in the third round, Rafael Nadal prevailed unscathed in three sets, but in the semi-finals against Alexander Zverev, he was injured, even though he won the first set (7-6, 6-6), before taking advantage of his opponent’s abandonment due to injury. In the eighth and quarter final, Rafael Nadal fell on two other big fish on the circuit: Felix Auger-Aliassime et Novak Djokovic. In his duel against the Canadians, Rafael Nadal had to fight for five sets, before finally imposing and for his iron arm against the Serbian army, the Majorquin was forced to deliver a long and heavy battle of four manches. And as indicated Rafael Nadal, one of the keys to his success is to never move and to always remain with his family. Despite the proposal of the Spanish Tennis Federation (RFET) to migrate to Barcelona, Rafael Nadal preferred to stay on his ground, and this is one of his miracle recipes to stay performing on the circuit.

“The Spanish Federation offered to move me to Barcelona, but …”
“One of the keys to success was staying at home. I have never had doubts on this subject. My career would have been very different if I hadn’t had my family. I’m no longer a child, but it’s like we all live in the same village. Everyone talks and everyone knows. I am very close to my father, my mother. It is obvious when we see each other. The Spanish Tennis Federation offered to move me to Barcelona, but my uncle – who was my coach – knew that in Majorca, I played with a good group, surrounded by good players, and everything went well. », A révélé Rafael Nadal in the terms reported by Tennis World France.
