Rafa is someone who strives to be perfect even if he is flawless on the court. When it comes to clay, there isn’t a player on tour who could at par with him. “It’s true that I lost a couple of tournaments, but it’s also true that I was close to winning. I did not play well enough to win, but I did not play that bad either,” Rafael Nadal mentioned.
