The Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal has assured that the two weeks lived in the Australian Open, that culminated falling in the final against Serbian Novak Djokovic (6-3, 6-2, 6-3), have been "very important" and "emotional" for him, because they have shown that he has been able to recover his best level after his injury, and has promised to continue "fighting" to achieve "important things". "I've been through difficult times in the last year, since the US Open I could not play a professional game until the first round here," he said in his speech after the game.
In this sense, the Spaniard explained that his performance in the Oceanic Grand Slam will give him strength to face the season. "It is very important to be where I am tonight, coming back from an injury. It will give me good energy and it will be a great inspiration for what is coming. "I can only say one thing: I will continue working and I will continue fighting to fight for important things. Every moment, I will continue fighting, "he added.
In addition, the Spaniard, winner in Melbourne in 2009, congratulated his rival. "Congratulations to Novak and his team, he has had an incredible level of tennis tonight and during these two weeks," he said about the performance of the Balkan, new king of the tournament to win his seventh win.
Nadal also thanked his team and his family, without whom, he "would not be" in the final, and "all the people who make this trophy possible". "I can not thank people enough for all their support, the connection with you is difficult to explain, thanks for everything," he said, addressing the audience of the Rod Laver Arena.
