While he's in the midst of an unusual clay-court season, there's still no reason he won't be able to celebrate both his 12th Roland Garros title and his marriage. The world No. 2 hasn't won a title yet in 2019, but considers the clay-court season thus far "normal".
"It's more normal what is happening right now than what happened in the last 14 years," he said in Madrid. "I think I have tennis ahead of me. I have time ahead of me. I'll be able to try to win these tournaments that I was not able to win this year. And what I have to do is to stay fit and to keep playing at a high level."
Though title-less, he reached the semifinals in Madrid, Barcelona and Monte Carlo. Novak Djokovic would win the Madrid final over Stefanos Tsitispas, marking his 33rd ATP Masters 1000 title and tying him with Nadal's record.
Nadal was seeking his 12th career crowns in Barcelona and Monte Carlo, and will be the No. 2 seed in Rome this week.
