Rafael Nadal responds to Stefanos Tsitsipas verdict after Barcelona Open victory


Rafael Nadal has responded to Stefanos Tsitsipas' claims that the Spaniard despises being on the receiving end of a defeat more than anybody else in tennis. The 20-time Grand Slam winner admitted that he does not always hate losing matches. Nadal overcame a strong performance from the Greek youngster to win the Barcelona Open for a record 12th time on Sunday afternoon. "I don’t hate losing," clarified Nadal. "But, I like winning and competing more than anything else. I like to make an effort to try to achieve the objectives and, if I do not achieve them, to leave with the peace of mind that I have tried. If you don’t fight in a final, when do you fight?" Sunday's result will provide a welcome boost for Nadal as he prepares to defend his French Open title at Roland Garros.
