''The Old Machine'' And Rafa Nadal's 10 Warning Messages

Since January, at the Australian Open, the Mallorcan began to reveal his exhausted coexistence with pain.

Since last January, Rafa Nadal began to prepare the ground with intentional messages about his exhausting coexistence with the pain caused by the incurable disease of his left foot and the possibility of facing a prolonged rest. In May, at the Master 1000 in Rome, all the alarms went off by assuring that he was at the limit of resistance.

And after beating Ruud in the final, Nadal's explanations came. The Majorcan revealed that he had played undercover in Paris and that he will undergo radiofrequency treatment to avoid pain. These were the 10 ads released before his 14th Roland Garros final.

The Greatest In History

January 28. After defeating Matteo Berrettini in the semifinals of the Australian Open, he opened the spigot of his first grenade. ''There have been days when he could train 20 minutes, another 45 and many others when he couldn't even get on the track. I worked very hard, I knew how to maintain a constructive attitude and a very positive spirit and that has been key to giving me the opportunity to come back. It means a lot to me to be in the final of this tournament, I can't put into words what I feel because very recently I was having conversations with my team and family about the possibility of saying goodbye. Now I enjoy it more than ever because several times I have been close to not achieving something like that again."

May 5th. In the Master 1000 in Madrid he again alerts about the tremendous sacrifices to which he was subjected. "I am lame many days of my life. I have a chronic and incurable injury."

May 10. On the eve of the tournament in Rome, he warns that recovery times will be prolonged. "I'm not in the shape I was in at the beginning of the year because I haven't touched the racket for six weeks. My body is like an old machine, it takes time to oil it. I have to trust my body again, to feel comfortable."

May 12. After losing to Shapovalov in Rome, everything blew up. "Towards the middle of the second set I felt a lot of pain in my left foot. I'm not injured, I'm a player who lives with an injury. I play because it makes me happy, but the pain takes away that happiness. I live taking a lot of painkillers so I can train all every day. I can't go on like this for long. I don't pretend to be in perfect condition, I just hope I can go out on the pitch. If I don't take any anti-inflammatory I'm lame. I'll keep going like this until I hold on and my head says enough".

The Anticipated Final Of The Finals

May 20. Roland Garros preview. "I'm almost 36 years old, I've won 13 times here and I know what's going on. The pressure I put on myself is greater than what comes from outside."

May 23. Beat Jordan Thompson in the first round at Roland Garros. "At my age, I will soon be 36, being here is a gift."

May 29. He pressures the Roland Garros organization to play with natural light against Djokovic and warns again that if he lost to the Serbian it could be his last game in Paris. "I prefer to play during the day. I know Roland Garros during the day, not so much at night, and I like playing during the day more. I don't know what can happen, I am aware that each game could be the last one''.

Diablo Is Back, Now On Mobile

June 1. After beating Djokovic. "I already said in Rome that having my doctor here helps me do things. I'll talk about this when the tournament is over. I do everything to try to play in the best conditions. Tonight I haven't won anything, I'm only in the quarterfinals. The only thing What I've done is give myself a chance to be in the semi-finals. It's been a very nice night for me and the goal is to maintain the level of tennis that I've had today. Probably, the public already knows that I won't be here many more times."

June 2. Before the final step. "I'm very clear, I don't have to hide anything at my age. I have what I have in my foot and if I haven't found a solution it's difficult for me. We haven't found a solution, but we'll keep fighting to find it. Playing in the semi-finals gives me a lot energy, we'll see how it goes down here (the left foot)... At no time do I intend for this to seem like a farewell. I have no illusions of coming back".

3 of June. The colophon. "I prefer a new foot to winning the final, because a new foot would allow me to be happier in my day-to-day life. Winning fills you with adrenaline, but life is much more important than any title. I have a life ahead of me and I have to think in the future. I have always made an effort to generate the maximum possible options, but there is a lifetime ahead of me and in the future I would love to be able to play with my friends, in an amateur way, and that is now an unknown quantity. My happiness is ahead of any title. Not having the pain I have almost every day would change my life."
