Marius Sumudica, coach of Romanian Superliga team Rapid Bucharest and former professional soccer player, declared himself amazed at Rafael Nadal’s ability to play and recover so well.
“What happens in tennis, when you play matches of 3-4 hours, you go in five sets and you play every day, I don’t know how the body recovers in 24 hours, there is no such thing. I look at Nadal, the way he runs and the way he takes everything out, he’s a superman, I thought it was someone who drags him around and carries him around. Don’t worry, I’ve been training for so long and I realize human capabilities,” said football coach and former player Marius Sumudica on Digi Sport’s Fotbal Club show.
