Nadal dumps retirement plan after reaching Rogers Cup final

August 12th, 2018

World number one Tennis player, Rafael Nadal has dropped an earlier retirement plan after qualifying for the Rogers Cup final.
Nadal, 32 will be taking on Tsitsipas on his 20th birthday as the Spaniard looks to add to his 32 Masters 1000 titles.
He won’t find it easy though with Tsitsipas having knocked out four top ten players in Toronto.
And Nadal wants to keep going as he prepares for his 116th ATP final.
“To win this match is important, it’s very important to be in the final of Toronto,” Nadal said.
“I’m motivated every day when I wake up, there is always something to improve.
“I want to stay around for as long as possible (in tennis).”
He has qualified for the year-end championships every season since 2005, but has only actually competed nine times and reached just two finals, losing both.
It is perhaps the only major accolade that eludes the 17-time Grand Slam champion and even last year he arrived under an injury cloud and had to withdraw after his first match.
