Rafael Nadal gives his fans hope with some statements – a career into the 40s like Roger Federer?

Additionally, he was still “highly ranked and competitive”. Nadal added: “You never know what can happen. It always depends on different factors; some of them you can control, others you can’t.”

The 36-year-old had to take a long break this summer due to an abdominal muscle injury, and after pulling out of the US Open, Nadal withdrew from the tournament for almost two months.

At the beginning of October, the Spaniard became a father for the first time. Nadal only returned to the tour at the Paris Masters. He stopped only for a farewell with Roger Federer at the end of September at the Laver Cup.

“So let’s just say I’m super happy to be where I am at 36. We’ll see, I want to go on and enjoy playing every year, which is a gift for me,” said the 22-year-old Grand Slam winner, who in on Sunday, he will start the ATP finals with a match against Taylor Fritz (USA).

Victory in the final tournament, which Nadal has yet to win, would knock Carlos Alcaraz off the top of the world rankings. His young compatriot had to withdraw to Turin due to injury. Fritz followed him.
