Rafael Nadal has achieved his big goal for 2020 and thanks to his 13th success at Roland Garros, he achieved Roger Federer’s record of 20 Grand Slams. Although official announcement has not yet arrived, the Spanish phenomenon should have ended its season already, as Rafa himself had expected at a press conference after his triumph in Paris.
If the decision were confirmed, the former world number 1 would miss the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy, and in particular the ATP final in London. Meanwhile, Casper Ruud, who has been training at the Rafa Nadal Academy for over two years, underlined the big difference between the Mallorcan behavior in everyday life and his attitude on the pitch.
The Norwegian was one of the protagonists of the circuit on his return from suspension, having achieved a total of 22 wins, improved upon by the semi-finals at Italy’s internationals.
Ruud on Rafael Nadal
“Rafael Nadal is a very different person off the field than him,” Casper Ruud told Nettavisen.
“On the field he is both fearless and a little reckless towards opponents. One might almost think that he enjoys pestering her with the game he is playing. But off the field he is extremely calm and a normal, humble person, ”he added.
“It’s a bit like he just flips the switch on and is a different person when he goes to a tennis court. So it was fun to experience and see something. ”Ruud, who has 22 victories on the tour this year – just like Rafael Nadal – added that he had tried to incorporate the Spaniard’s attitude into his own approach to the Include sport.
“When Rafael Nadal sits in the facility before the game and has lunch he is pretty calm, but once he starts the game there is no stopping,” said Ruud. “It’s something that I’ve also tried to look at and bring to my game and tennis.
When you’re in the field, you’re there to get a job done and nothing more. Now we may have reached the stage where we see ourselves as competitors, “said the 21-year-old.” We are now probably more there than him as a babysitter who holds my hand and supports me.
This is totally wrong. Well, that’s how I want it because it proves I’ve come a long way. I think he thinks it’s great that someone from the academy has come to me, “said Ruud.” He congratulates me when I’m fine and things like that, so it’s a nice gesture from him.
I got a message from him to Rome. He congratulated me and it’s nice for me that he follows (my matches) a little. ”
