    SOUNDBITE (English): Rafael Nadal

    "No, was too tiring. After the Olympics I feel myself destroyed. But it's normal, no? Is not because I was not ready. It's because I didn't competed and I didn't have the chance to practice strong practices on court, no? I was doing a lot of physical performance, training in the gym. But since one week before the Olympics I was not hitting forehand, no? Just practicing 45 minutes to 30 to one hour. That's the maximum thing that I was practicing, no? So was a very important event for me, and in general terms have been very, very positive. I will say more than very positive, and I'm 100% recovered physically, no? In terms of the wrist injury, I was not sure when I was there, but the real thing is the wrist improved. Was a very good decision.
