Nadal, who has been dealing with an injured foot, revealed he needed an injection to play the final game.

The preparation was not ideal.

I had a stress fracture of the rib, then I have the foot [pain], which stays there all the time.

I had my doctor here with me --, Rafael Nadal, via statement, as reported by ESPN.

I don't know how to say in English what we did.

We played with no feeling on the foot, we played with an injection in the nerve so the foot was asleep -- that's why I was able to play, Rafael Nadal, via statement, as reported by ESPN.

While receiving his trophy, Nadal thanked his supporters for keeping him going.

I don't know what can happen in the future, but I'm going to keep fighting to try to keep going, Rafael Nadal, via statement, as reported by ESPN.

ESPN reports Nadal will soon undergo a radiofrequency nerve ablation on his foot.

The outcome of that procedure will determine whether he plays Wimbledon.

Wimbledon is a priority, always [has] been a priority.

If I am able to play with anti-inflammatories?

Yes.

To play with anesthetic injections?

No.

I don't want to put myself in that position again.

Can happen once, but no, is not a philosophy of life that I want to follow, Rafael Nadal, via statement, as reported by ESPN
