Nadal has played very little tennis

Speaking to the media, Rafael Nadal stressed that he gives it his best in every tournament regardless of his record at the event. “I try my best in every single event. That’s true. Doesn’t matter if I won it [in the past] or not. When I enter a tennis tournament, I want to win and I’m going to try my best to achieve that goal. Here I was not able to make it, I was not good enough to make it in the past. So I just accept that and I’m happy to give myself another chance at the age of 36 — something, for me, that was difficult to imagine years ago,” he explained. “First time for me in Turin. That’s something that is great because in the end, we know different places, we are able to live different experiences, different types of fans,” he said. “London has been unforgettable, great. Now Turin. The Italian crowd is super passionate. So I’m very excited about enjoying this [Nitto ATP] Finals here in Turin. Hopefully that gives me some positive feelings,” he added. “I like to spend days on the Tour, first of all, and then of course the last couple of months I was not able to spend a lot of time on the Tour. I’m happy to be here, happy to be playing the last tournament of the year, sharing with the other Top 7,” Nadal said, speaking to ATP Media during media day in Turin.
