World No.2 Rafael Nadal is trying to stay connected with the sport as much as possible while he is confined to his home. The Spaniard revealed that he is in constant touch with his arch-rivals, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, to think about how to bring the sport back in action.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the tennis world unlike ever before. Consequently, there are a lot of issues to look upon during the global crisis. From how to resume the tour despite travel restrictions, to the financial crisis affecting the lower-ranked players. Hence, the ‘Big 3’ are banding together to try to resolve the problems due to the paralysis of the game.

“I try to be aware of what is happening” – Rafael Nadal
During a conversation with Spanish Basketball player Pau Gasol, Nadal revealed that he is trying to be aware of everything during the quarantine. He is also keeping in touch with his academy, where many children are quarantined without their families.

“Basically I’m going to sleep much later. There are times that I find it hard to fall asleep, this is the truth. I try to do two sessions of fixed work, because that way, among all, it takes up a little more time,” Nadal told Gasol.

“Then I try to be very aware of what is happening. For example, now we are here. I have been in a meeting before with Novak, Federer, and the ATP president talking about things. Also with my Foundation and looking for solutions. The Academy itself is a great concern because there are many people who work there and who are suffering,” he added.

Tennis is a global sport that requires a lot of travel week after week. With travel restrictions in place across the globe, tennis is still some way off from resuming. It could very well be one of the last sports to return to normalcy after the coronavirus subsides. We hope the ‘Big Three’, along with all the governing bodies of tennis and the other stakeholders of the sport unite and get through these tough times together.
