 You play against an inspired opponent and I am out. That's all. It’s not a tragedy. It’s only a tennis match. At the end, that's life. There are much more important things. Sure, I wanted to win, but I lost. That's it. 
— Rafael Nadal after losing to Lukas Rosol in a five set battle in the second round of Wimbledon 2012 / June 28, 2012
 That's sport. You win, you lose. The last four months were great for me. It was probably one of the best four months of my career, playing unbelievable in the clay-court season.

 I am very, very disappointed. Sure, I’m not very happy. In the end is a second round match. It’s not the semifinals or the final, so that bothers more, because then you feel that you had the chance to win the title, 
— Rafael Nadal saying losing in the second round is much better than losing in the semifinals or final / June 28, 2012
 The pressure is the same every year. I am here because I try my best every day and because I have a lot of motivation to try to win the tournament. It is not because it's the seventh, but because it's Roland Garros. It's one of my top tournaments of the year, if not the most important. So seriously, extra pressure for me with it being the seventh is zero. The pressure is the same as in any other final of Roland Garros, and that's the most important thing for me.

 Always I believe that I can play better. But I am happy. I stayed one month and a half almost outside of competition. I came back winning a few comfortable matches in straight sets against not an easy opponent, like Marcel Granollers.

 My reason for playing doubles is that I didn’t play for a month… I think doubles is a good way to practise for everybody, where you can practise different movements, different shots. When you have days off [from singles], you can play an extra match. And if you lose, you have another chance to be in competition. At the same time, I’m playing with one of my best friends, so that’s another reason to play.
