Rafael Nadal: ‘I am ready and I am going to keep fighting for missing ATP Finals title’

Rafael Nadal has vowed to ‘keep fighting’ to claim an ATP Finals title, although he says he has plenty of great memories from the event. 

The Spaniard, perhaps surprisingly, has never won the event although he has been a defeated finalist twice before.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic decimating the tennis calendar this year, though, Nadal arrives in London far fresher than usual, and he says he is ready to go again to attempt to add another trophy to his collection.

“I have better memories of other places than playing here”, Nadal told Tennis TV.

“I have had a couple of good wins. Last year I played good matches against Stefanos [Tsitsipas] and Daniil [Medvedev] and I remember the semi-final with Andy in 2010 was a great match.

“I have always enjoyed playing here. The atmosphere has always been really spectacular and yes I have memories, positive and negative.

“I feel excited to play, I feel motivated. I played well in Paris last week fighting for every match which hopefully will help to play good tennis here. I expect to be ready.

“This event is a big one and I am going to keep fighting for it.”
