Speaking prior of the ATP 1000 tournament, Nadal revealed how difficult it was to depart. “It’s a different approach than normal,” OKBET Rafa Nadal said. “It’s always been difficult to leave home. It’s extremely funny how even after two or three weeks of leaving your baby at home and not being able to see him, even after just three weeks knowing him, you start missing him.

“All changes in life are tough, and you must adjust to them.” It’s also true that we are fortunate nowadays in that we can do video calls whenever we want, which is always helpful.” Nadal had said that he did not want to conceive a family until he retired. Many predict that, at 36 years old and with a newborn son, Nadal will retire within the next year.

Speaking to media on Tuesday, the 22-time grand slam winner said that he had no desire to compete with Carlos Alcaraz for the World No.1 position, a further indication that retirement is imminent. Nadal might still complete the year at the top of the rankings, but he’ll need a strong showing in Paris and the season-ending ATP Finals in Turin later this month to do so. “To be clear, I think it’s an intriguing subject because you’re talking about battling for No. 1, [but] I don’t compete to be World No. 1 any more,” Nadal said.

“I simply want to be competitive in whatever event I compete in. I’ve said for a long time that I will no longer compete for the number one spot. In the past, I did. I’ve accomplished that aim a couple of times in my career and have been quite delighted and proud of myself for doing so. But I’m at a point in my tennis career when I’m not battling for No. 1.

“I’m simply glad to be here. I’m here to give it my all and then accept things as they come. Hopefully, I’ll be ready, and I’ll strive to be competitive. Let’s see what happens. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Rafa Nadal is pleased with his accomplishments in 2022

In 2022, Nadal won the Australian and French Opens, putting him one grand slam ahead of Djokovic on 21. The seasoned champions are currently the only players in the top ten above the age of 30, with four of the other eight players under the age of 25. When asked how it felt to compete against the next generation of players, Nadal stated, “My sentiments are that I am proud of all the things that I was able to still be here in 2022.”

“It demonstrates that I performed a variety of things well in my life, not just tennis. To maintain the enthusiasm, love for the game, and battling spirit.”I’m proud of it, and I’m hoping to enjoy the last two tournaments of the year.” Meanwhile, Djokovic started his Paris Masters campaign with a 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 triumph against Maxime Cressy on Tuesday.

Djokovic, a six-time winner at the ATP 1000 tournament in Paris, was had to work hard in the first set but escaped unharmed when the American double-faulted twice in the tie-break. “It was pretty stressful,” he added, “just a lot of pressure.” “When you play someone who serves this well – first and second serve – there isn’t much space to relax and play a few easier games. A break arrived just in time, in fact, it was the ideal moment. I was happy with how I held my serve, since I did not face a break point.”
