The opportunities are not eternal, although I hope to have more in the future. I had four chances and in two of them I was very close.”

“Normally, when you have those chances you have to take them. I feel good. I have started the year well. In every match I felt I performed well. Now I have another chance to do it and hopefully I will be ready.” (Rafael reveals the reason why he chose Tennis over Football)

“Obviously I am 30 and not 14, it’s normal that I take my own decisions about many things. But I always listen Toni’s opinion or my family. When he says that he is not taking decisions anymore, it’s not in a bad way. Without Toni I wouldn’t have played tennis but football. ” (Rafael reveals the reason why he chose Tennis over Football)

“He has had a strong impact on my game, personality and education. If he asks me to come with me at the Roland Garros next year, I will be happy to be with him.

But it will be impossible for him to travel as much as he did with me. He has two sons who play tennis, and they do it very well.”
