The 14-time grand slam champion Rafael Nadal confessed that he is having the worst season since 2004, but believes he will improve and get back to the top.Nadal also mentioned that he is working hard than ever to get back the right feelings back on the tennis court.

Nadal, who is in New York and getting ready for the start of final Grand Slam of the season, said in an interview, “It’s not easy for me to find the form that I had at so many times in my career, but it is getting close to that level. After a tough year for me, I feel today close to being at the level of tennis where I have been in the past.”

The 14-time Grand Slam champion added, “That doesn’t mean I’m going to win but in terms of tennis, I’m closer than at any point in the past 12 months to playing at the level of tennis where I’ve been before. It might not be this week or next, but the results will come. The results will be back. I know that.”

Nadal has been unable to meet anyone from Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray in this season, but he has beaten some players ranked in the top 10. The Spaniard’s own ranking has dropped to number 8 and he has lost to some very low ranked players in this season, but he thinks that he still poses a threat to top players.

He further said, “I’m not having the best season personally. Worst season in 11 years. But I still think I can be a dangerous player in some moments.”

If Nadal fails to win US Open, which looks likely in the present situation, he will lose a 10-year streak of winning at least one Grand Slam in every season since 2005.
