You’ve seen the best of me – Nadal

Former Tennis great Rafael Nadal admits he burned out

Former Tennis great Rafael Nadal admits he burned out

Spanish Tennis player Rafael Nadal says he may not be able to rekindle his former Wimbledon glories after he was sensationally beaten by German qualifier Dustin Brown.

In a rare admission about his flagging form, now the world number 10, lost 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4.

The Spaniard, 29, has been beaten by players ranked outside the top 100 in each of his last four appearances.

“I don’t know if I will be back to the level of 2008 or 2010,” said the two-time men’s champion.

“My motivation is try to be back to that level. But I’ve got to keep working.

“If I don’t make that happen then I’ve played five finals and taken the trophy back home two times, so that’s not bad.”

Nadal is currently at his lowest ranking in almost a decade and was beaten in the quarter-finals at both the Australian Open and French Open this year.

But Nadal insists that he’s not done yet.  “It’s not the end. It is a sad moment for me but life continues. My career, too,” he added.
