Rafael Nadal praised Simone Biles' decision
"We are not just entertainment, we talk more about the mental health problem of athletes. And since we are no longer children, now that we are grown up we can do it ourselves," said Simone Biles, after she won the bronze medal in the final on the beam.
The American star, one of the most anticipated athletes in Tokyo 2021, experienced twisties in the first week in Tokyo made her lose her bearings, especially in backward stunts and twists. Simone has spent the last week continuing to train and be evaluated by the team doctor, Dr.
Marcia Faustin. At the end of the year, Biles hinted that she may want to stay somehow until the Paris 2024 Games to honor the French coaches Laurent and Cecile Landi.ù Rafael Nadal, one of the greatest sportsmen of all time, has also based his career on his mental strength and his will, today we talk about much of management of pressure and mental problems.
Rafa's goal is to be in 100% form for the start of the US Open, where he will hunt for his fifth title. In a press conference before his Washington debut, Nadal addressed the delicate issue of mental health. This topic took center stage during the Tokyo Games, mainly due to the experiences of Naomi Osaka and gymnast Simone Biles.
Rafa said: "I have the utmost respect for Simone Biles' decision. When you have struggled all your life to make your dreams come true, there can be times when you don't feel ready. Simone has achieved extraordinary results during his career and I am sure he will soon be back to his best.
If she doesn't feel like it right now or she doesn't have the spirit to compete, why should she be forced to?" Rafa also returned to his renunciation of Wimbledon and the Olympics: “My body made that decision.
If I had been able to choose freely, I would never have missed two such important dates. I had a foot problem after Roland Garros and I couldn't train for 20 days." The former world number 1, who played his last match at the Roland Garros, is preparing to come back to the court at the ATP in Washington this week.
After the defeat in the semifinals in Paris against Novak Djokovic, the physicist forced the Iberian to stop for two months to recharge his batteries and avoid injuries. The 20-time Grand Slam champion therefore gave up on both Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics, which crowned Alexander Zverev in the final over Karen Khachanov.
The 35-year-old from Manacor will make his debut against host Jack Sock, who has shown signs of recovery in recent months.
