Rafa Nadal spoke by videoconference with the students of the Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid Universidad Europea. The event was hosted by Emilio Butragueño, director general of the Real Madrid European University College, who introduced the tennis player: "This is a very special session because our guest is a myth, a legend".

Nadal, who is an honorary member of Real Madrid and an honorary doctorate from the European University of Madrid, answered the students' questions and recalled his first Roland Garros: "At that moment I felt that I had won Roland Garros, the most that can be won, and I assumed that for the rest of my career I would be able to play more comfortably. But it was aa massive mistake, that's what I thought at the time, but after three weeks you are back competing and you are just as nervous.

 Football
"Although football is a team sport, the team shines when it works collectively but also when each individual player reaches his or her highest level. Even though it is a collective sport, each player also has his or her own objectives. Meeting those individual goals helps to meet the collective ones".

"No matter how clever and enterprising you are, if you don't have the ability to lean on people and team-mates, it's very difficult to shine just because you're a big player".
