  • Roland Garros Nadal has already trained in Manaco and will travel to Paris this Wednesday

Five days before the start of the Roland Garros, Pala Badosa He assured that he would like to be less exposed in the Paris tournament than he is now, one of the best rackets in the circuit, which is ranked third in the WTA rankings.

“I didn’t get it the way I wanted to. I want to bring less publicity and peace of mind. But it’s worth it. I’d change from playing a tournament on this ground tour, I’d win,” he said. But I’m ready, I’ve done a great job, “he said

I am very prepared physically and mentally. Mentally I would have liked to be a little calmer. But it’s a grand slam, we all have the nerves and that’s the best way to handle it, “he said at the event, where he was introduced as the new ambassador to Forkapil.

In this sense, he analyzed his favorite situation: “Playing as a favorite is never easy. Opponents play with nothing to lose and level up further. This is another challenge I am going to face and I look forward to facing it. “” For me it is a very emotional tournament, it means a lot. I won junior there, it was the first Grand Slam I went to see when I was nine years old. I have a lot of beautiful memories and I really want to do it very well, “he said.

After playing in Madrid and Rome, Badosa reached the appointment: “Of course I felt pressure in those tournaments, a little more than others. I think he came up with a lot of games, maybe he needed to play a little less. This is my first year with all these new, many experiences that I am learning from. “

As for how he managed to get more attention, he declared: “It depends on the day. It’s something that came suddenly, a year ago I was 70 and a year later I was two years old. It’s a huge boom. It’s something I don’t know. ” You expect or you wait. I always believed that I could do something good in tennis, but I did not expect it to happen so quickly overnight and it was not easy to carry.

“Now that I’m very exposed, people expect you to win every game you play. It’s not normal. It’s hard to manage and I’m learning to manage. I’m taking it with my team, with professionals. I hope you manage it better“, He added.

“Social Networks Are Damaged”

This leaves a lesson for him: “The first thing I learned was that I had to remove myself from social networks. They do a lot of damage, because in the end it is very easy for people to talk from the inside out. I try my best in my work and it is very easy to constantly judge from outside. What has helped me is to talk about things, to express how I feel. “

Despite everything, he enjoys it: “Many years have passed, my whole life with a clear goal, training every day to achieve it. A dream has come true in the position I am in now, it has been fought and overcome for many years

The player further confirms that he will be alert if he experiences another episode of depression: “There is always the fear of going back to depression, if I don’t say it it will deny reality. “. “Mentally, the head always goes to the limit. There are times when the head is full, that there are more moments of tension or anxiety. It’s always there, more in tennis. But luckily I have a good environment that helps. Let it happen to me if possible, “he added.

On the other hand, I celebrate that her image inspires other women: “I think it is very important to understand the empowerment of women. It is growing a lot and it is very important to increase that feminine part. There is nothing stronger than a strong and powerful woman. “

“Trying to inspire women is a joy to see myself reflected in. My career has never been perfect and I think that’s normal, we’re not perfect or robots. It helps to see women, even if there are difficulties, you can reach success and victory. “, He added.
