It means a lot of energy to try and keep going…I don’t know what can happen in the future but I am going to keep fighting to try and keep going.”

”Team, family, everyone who is there. It is amazing the things that are happening this year,” Nadal added. “I just thank you very, very much for all the things you are doing for me and over the years.
