Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal shared his opinion that Austrian Dominic Thiem can overtake him in the world rankings based on the results of the ATP Final Championship.
“I would prefer to end the season on the second line rather than on the third, but you can recall my words from many years ago that I will not rely on the ratings and will often play in attempts to stay at the top of the Asia-Pacific region if this is contrary to my physical condition, my future.
The only thing I know is that I have to do my job well. My position in the ranking will depend on the quality of my game. Second-line? Excellent. First? Even better. Even if you finish the season in third, it means it was a great year, right?
This is how I see my approach, my schedule. I must correctly prioritize and trust my team, which clearly knows what is most important for my tennis career now, ” ASAP Sports quotes Nadal.
