I have a body of 40-year-old, says Rafael Nadal

A few days back, Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo said despite being 33 years old, he feels like having body of a 23-year-old.

It’s the opposite for Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal though.

Asked about his ‘biological age’, the 32-year-old said he feels like forty even as he stressed that these things don’t matter to him.

“Cristiano’s body is 23 years old? Then mine is forty-something,” he said.

Nadal has a reason to say that, given the fact that 16-time Grand Slam champion’s career has been marred by injuries.

“I don’t give much attention to those studies. I’m not interested in these things; I just play tennis. I don’t think you can know exactly how old your body is [in that way],” said Nadal, who was troubled by a chronic knee injury earlier this year as well.

“I’m 32 and I’m the way I am. I’m happy and I accept my age.”

Meanwhile, Nadal will look to win a record 11th Roland Garros title when he faces Austria’s Dominic Thiem in the final on Sunday.
