The results were not there for Nishikori in Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami and Monte Carlo, raising his level after that to reach the semis in Barcelona and quarters in Rome and Paris, overcoming two tough challenges to find himself in the last eight at Roland Garros. I played a lot, I had to deal with daily pressure. Nadal said, 'I was not enjoying it very much.
"Mentally, after Indian Wells, I suffered a major downturn", the Spaniard told the ATP website. I had gotten exhausted of playing taking painkillers. Either way, the outlook was bleak. "Physically, because of another tendon tear in my knee, and on top of going through all the treatment required in the recovery process, there was dealing with the pain".
Nadal, who broke the record of 20 Grand Slam champions of Switzerland's tennis star Roger Federer, said, "You can not be disturbed by seeing a big house, big TV or a good garden than your own neighbor".

"Between the level of pain and just being sidelined, there came a time when I just felt exhausted of all of this", he added.
But Nadal acknowledged that he could still take an indefinite break in future years, with long-time rival Federer, who is also coming to the final years of his career, having opted to skip the clay swing in the previous two years.
