Nadal won’t target Federer Slam record

However, even Thiem is able to do against Nadal in this Form nothing and was defeated in nearly exactly three hours 3:6, 7:5, 1:6, 1:6.

John McEnroe asked Rafa, how is he unusually consistent at the clay major, "I don't know", Rafael Nadal said in a conversation with John McEnroe on Court Philippe-Chatrier."Just working hard and hold a passion for what I am doing, that's all".

"I know I played a great event a year ago", Nadal said in Paris on Sunday. Then I played the way I should play in the second set, very aggressive.

Last year, he lost a marathon semi-final to Novak Djokovic by dropping the last set 10-8. He won't enter a grass-court tuneup event, figuring that time off to rest is what he needs more than anything else. When I played the first time here in 2005, I could not think that I'd be coming back here in 2019.

No man has done the Roland Garros-Wimbledon double since Nadal himself in 2010, when he picked up his second Wimbledon title, two years after his first.

"Honestly, the last two years that I played in Wimbledon, I felt close again. But you want to see the passing of the torch while they are still in their prime", added Becker, who won Wimbledon at the age of 17. The Spaniard was yet to find his rhythm, facing two more break points in game six and repelling them with good serves before Federer wasted the third opportunity with a massive forehand error that would have cost him a lot. And as Nadal showed in Paris on Sunday, when he won 23 of 27 points at the net against Thiem, he volleys as well as anyone.

'Above all, however, he won his 18th Grand Slam title and is thus closer to Roger Federer and his 20 trophies. "I could stop for a while and recover or change my attitude and recover". Victory in Rome last month restored his belief, and his win at Roland Garros will surely have been as satisfying as any of the other 11 titles there. Nadal's only losses came to Robin Soderling of Sweden in the fourth round of the 2009 tournament (6-2, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6), to Djokovic in the quarterfinals of the 2015 tournament (7-5, 6-3, 6-1), and to Marcel Granollers of Spain, who he was forced to retire to after pulling out with a wrist injury in 2016.

Watch every minute and match from Roland-Garros 2019 live - anytime and anywhere - on Eurosport and the Eurosport Player. I think [he is mentally ready]. As usual, Nadal seems too grounded to get carried away. After Madrid and Barcelona, I was thinking about what I needed to do. He said: "You can't be frustrated all the time because the neighbour has a bigger house than you, or a bigger TV or a better garden".

"So I just try to be positive, to be intense, and to be passionate about what I am doing".

Federer, who will be 38 in August, played dazzling tennis to reach the semi-final before Nadal and a Parisian gale did for his hopes of a record-extending 21st Grand Slam title.

But Nadal, with his confidence up and his knees healthy, will be there too.
