I have to announce my retirement from the sport that gave me so much. I’m very grateful.

Tennis without Federer will still be tennis. It will have lost one of the most important ambassadors it has ever had in its history…

I didn’t do anything, I felt, wrong in those few points. He [Nadal] didn’t make a mistake. He served well. He came to net. All the credit to him. I had my momentum from midway second set to end of the third. I was supposed to use and realize the opportunities that were presented to me, and I didn’t do it.

On a potential QF meeting with Roger Federer in the US Open

  • Rafael Nadal: I would prefer to play against another one [laughs]
  • Marcus Buckland: That's an honest answer
  • Rafael Nadal: I don't want to lie but I would love to be in quarter finals and Roger would not be there, but probably Roger would be there.

At the end, you are No. 1 or you are not No. 1. [I’m not] gonna go and fight for the No. 1. We’ll see at the end of the season. If I am No. 1, it will be amazing, amazing season for me. If I am not No. 1, it still will be amazing season for me. This tournament gonna make a big difference. We will see what’s happening here, and after here I will say not everything will be decided, but things can be more clear [or] completely less clear.


I honestly don’t want to think about it, because the more you think about it, the nearer the end is, and that’s why I avoid the thought of it.
