On this day Rafael Nadal downs Roger Federer to defend Roland Garros crown

The Spaniard played through the pain barrier to secure a record-extending 12th Roland Garros title last week, defeating Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 in last Sunday's final.

On his chances of dethroning reigning SW19 champion Djokovic this year, Nadal said: "Realistically, I've had my chances at Wimbledon when I've been fit and playing well". Usual disclaimer, you must be over 18 to visit their site.

The Spaniard admitted that the latest injury setback was mentally draining and admitted that he even contemplated ending his season early in order to recuperate physically and mentally.

Kvitova won the Birmingham event in 2017 in just her second tournament back following a serious knife attack that almost ended her career, and followed up with a victory over Magdalena Rybarikova to lift the title again previous year.

Nadal conceded a walkover to Roger Federer at Indian Wells and skipped the Miami Open before returning to the tour for the clay season, where he lost three semi-finals in a row before winning titles in Rome and Paris.

Andy Murray is the only player to win a title at the Wimbledon in the past 16 years besides Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. He revealed that it was his belief to get back to his best is the only reason he captured his 12th title on the red dirt in Paris.

Asked about his current condition and whether anything is possible for the rest of 2019 after winning the French Open, Nadal told the ATP's official website: "I've never seen myself as capable of anything". "If I made it to this point, it was because I believed that I could". In Barcelona, I thought about stopping, but not for a long time... After Indian Wells, I was feeling mentally and physically weak. Ideas and scenarios were swirling inside my head. I played a lot, I had to deal with daily pressure. Either way, the outlook was bleak.

"I wasn't in that situation". Watch Rafa's Full Speech To The GraduatesFerrer, who retired at the Mutua Madrid Open last month, also spoke at the ceremony, which was attended by family, friends and school staff and took place in the centre court of the academy. It's not a case of losing the drive of playing tennis.

"Between the level of pain and just being sidelined, there came a time when I just felt exhausted of all of this", he added.

"I'm going to have to adjust my schedule a little bit, but that's a matter I'll discuss with my team".
