JOHANNESBURG - Tennis world number one
Rafa Nadal said his Spanish compatriots' 1-0 World Cup triumph
against Netherlands on Sunday was "unrepeatable" and should be
celebrated for a whole year.
Keen football fan Nadal was at Johannesburg's Soccer City
stadium to watch Andres Iniesta fire the Iberian nation to a
first world title with a goal in the second period of extra time
that gave the European champions a dramatic win.
"We have to celebrate this for a whole year because it will
be very difficult to repeat," Nadal told Canal Plus television.
"This is a generation of players that will never be matched
and they deserve this," the Mallorcan added.
He missed a Spanish Davis Cup defeat by France completed on
Sunday to attend the final.
