I feel myself with the right motivation and the right energy to be back at Roland Garros the next couple of years




—Rafael Nadal




On Thursday, Nadal defeated Facundo Bagnis with his wrist anesthetized. With that victory, he became eighth man in history to achieve 200 wins in Grand Slams. Nadal had won ninth Monte Carlo Masters title in April.

In the press conference, Nadal said, "It's not broken but if I continue to play, my wrist will break in a few days"((fr)). Nadal said he felt wrist pain two weeks before he arrived at the French capital Paris. He also said, "This is one of the toughest press conferences of my career".

The seeded number 4 Spainard also admitted he could not play with his forehand. He was scheduled to play against Marcel Granollers. Nadal has an 87% win record in Grand Slams winning 200 matches out of 230.

He concluded the press conference by saying, "I feel myself with the right motivation and the right energy to be back at Roland Garros [the French Open] the next couple of years[...] It's a tournament that I love so much."
