They are a group of people who have been making history for 10 years and represent a memorable generation for our country. I spoke to Pau. He’s very happy, he played one of the best tournaments of his life.

The match he played against France was unreal,” Rafa shared. In 2021, Spanish tennis superstar Rafael Nadal said that Pau Gasol’s retirement from basketball was a “very sad day” for Spanish sport. The 41-year-old Gasol decided to end his successful career.

Far from it, or at least that’s not the intention. The intention is to continue to carry the name of Spain around the world while I’m still active and competitive.”
