I always work with a goal - and the goal is to improve as a player and a person. That, finally, is the most important thing of all.
Why would I want a place of my own? Then I would have to things worry about, like doing laundry and having food in the fridge.
I tried to find a solution to the problem that I had, tried to find a way to start playing better.
My serve can get better, for sure. It's not just about serving bombs, but positioning, variation in speed, in spin.
I'm always searching for new music, and I change what I listen to on a regular basis.
I like a lot of sports. Especially football - it's my favourite sport. My uncle played football in Barcelona for nine years and played for Spain in three World Cups.
I'll never have a tattoo - I just don't like them, and when you're old they can look a disaster. As for piercings, I don't like them on men.
I still take advice from my mum on what clothes look good on me. I used to listen to her a lot more, but I've started to choose my own things from time to time.
My goal is to improve my game, stay healthy and be competitive. If I have that, I know I can be able to win tournaments, which in the end is what it counts.
It's hard to say, 'I don't believe in God.' I would love to know if God exists. But it's a very difficult thing for me to believe.
To be a friend means that they are always there, for the good or the bad.
Is only a tennis match. At the end, that's life. There is much more important things.
I have been learning English on the road since I started when I was 15, so it is a slow process but making some progress. Now I think I am much more comfortable with my English. However, it is difficult, still, when I speak about something that is not tennis.
Even if I have already peaked, I have to believe I can improve. I wake up every morning, and go to practice, with the illusion that I'm going to get better that day.
I've stayed calm when I'm winning and I've stayed calm when I've lost. Tennis is a sport where we have a lot of tournaments every week, so you can't celebrate a lot when you have big victories, and you cannot get too down when you're losing, as in a few days you'll be in the next tournament and you'll have to be ready with that.
I used to wear sleeveless T-shirts all the time on court, but now I've got a brand new look - I've moved on to polo shirts. Sleeveless T-shirts give you real freedom of movement and they keep you cooler in matches, but I just thought it was time for a change.
You fight, you try your best, but if you lose, you don't have to break five racquets and smash up the locker room. You can do those things, but when you've finished, nothing's changed. You've still lost. If something positive came from that, I probably would do it. But I see only negativity.
My parents' divorce made an important change in my life. It affected me. After that, when I can't play Wimbledon, it was tough. For one month I was outside the world.
I'm ambidextrous when I eat. But playing tennis right-handed - I can't do it. I'm clueless.
If you don't lose, you cannot enjoy the victories. So I have to accept both things.
The glory is being happy. The glory is not winning here or winning there. The glory is enjoying practicing, enjoy every day, enjoying to work hard, trying to be a better player than before.
I'd rather lose an argument than get into a long discussion in order to win it.
I think I am a complete player. I can play well on all the surfaces. For me, the clay might be easiest, but I am not a specialist on clay.
We'll try and be very aggressive, we'll try and speed up and change gears, and we'll see who's going to win.
You know, a lot of things changed. What never changed is the illusion to keep playing tennis, the illusion to keep doing well the things, and the illusion to be in a good position of the ranking and play these kind of matches.
You just try to play tough and focus point for point. Sounds so boring, but it's the right thing to do out there.
I like fishing. Not actual fishing - I like the peace and quiet of being at sea. It's different.
My parents' divorce made an important change in my life. It affected me.
I am not the most courageous guy in the world outside of the court.
The thing, when you're down two sets to love, is to stay calm, even though it's hard, because people are freaking out, people are worried for you.
I love the crowds in Miami. I feel that is one of the tournaments where I get more support. That helps me a lot.
In Majorca, I can be myself. I go to the supermarket and the cinema, and I am just Rafa. Everyone knows me, and it is no big deal. I can go all day - no photographs.
I am happy with being a tennis player and the choice I took when I was 12. But clearly, if I wouldn't have been a tennis player, I would have loved to be a soccer player. But again, I am happy with the choice I made.
I think when you compete every week, when you play under pressure daily, you find your rituals to be 100 percent focused on what you're doing.
I am very lucky because when I come back home, I have a completely normal life. I can relax, playing golf, fishing - doing what I want. I know when I finish a tournament, I am going to relax at home.
I have the same bedroom I've always had. It's clean and tidy when I get home, and after two or three days it gets messy and my mother nags me.
I was shy when I was a kid, I was very shy, but now I think I've improved a lot. I can speak OK with the media and with the people. My English is still bad but I feel a little bit better now than before.
I live where I would like to live. I live in Majorca, Spain, and I am not sure there are better places.
I only ever run when there's some point to it - say, if it's in a game of tennis.
I am not the most courageous guy in the world outside of the court. Being alone in the dark is something I don't like.
I love the beach. I love the sea. All my life I live within - in front of the sea.
