Rafael Nadal: ‘My favourite opponents are one that I win against normally’

Rafael Nadal joking

Rafael Nadal admits he enjoys the challenges of playing against the likes of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, but insists it is more about the “different challenge” they offer.

The 19-time Grand Slam winner has enjoyed a great rivalry with Federer and Nadal and they have formed the Big Three between them as they have shared 56 majors between them.

Nadal was asked about his favourite opponents during a Facebook Q&A session to announce the renewal of his Kia sponsorship deal.

“My favourite opponents are one that I win against normally,” he replied.

“I enjoy the challenges to playing against Roger of course, against Novak too, against Andy [Murray], against David Ferrer.

“I think there are a lot of great opponents and everyone gives you a different challenge and you need to adjust your game to be competitive.

“I don’t have a favourite opponent, I just enjoy the fact that every single day we compete against a different one and you need to adapt everything.”
