Roland Garros: Five things we learned on Day 2: Nadal's got no idea

So he's not going to come back? Or perhaps he is. Rafael Nadal was all coy about future visits to the French Open after losing in the first round for the first time.


Rafael Nadal – he who has won the tournament 14 times and has the shoes to prove it – gave the distinct impression last year that this year would be his final traipse around the ATP circuit. But now, maybe not. "If I keep enjoying doing what I am doing and I feel myself competitive and healthy enough to enjoy, I want to keep going for a while," Nadal said after his first round loss to Alexander Zverev. "I don't know for how long, but I want to keep going for a while, because my wife and child are having fun, I am having fun, and I need to see. I need to give myself a little bit longer to see if my level is growing and my body is holding, and then let's make a decision." Exactly who do you think you are? One of the greatest players of all time?

Duty calls

Can I see him?
