Rafael Nadal has a lot more to offer, claims Carlos Moya

Carlos Moya believes that Rafael Nadal, who won his second major of the year in New York last week, is capable of competing at the highest level for a few more years if he manages to stay fit. The Spaniard is just three Grand Slams away from equalling Roger Federer's record of 19 major titles.

Moya teamed up with Nadal alongside Toni Nadal in December last year and the trio have seen nothing but success since then. Not only did the 10-time French Open winner reach three Grand Slam finals, winning two of them, he also managed to regain the top spot in the ATP rankings. While the absence of Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and Stan Wawrinka helped Nadal's cause, Moya believes that if his compatriot can stay relatively injury free, he can still be a force to be reckoned with in world tennis.

"If he can stay as healthy as he is now, without injury, motivated, looking after himself the way he is, we will be talking about Rafa for years to come," Moya said in an interview with atpworldtour.com.

"He is a player who broke records as a teenager and who is now breaking them as a veteran as well. This is something we haven't see much in the history of tennis.

"When I joined the team I knew that there was much more to come for Rafa, that if he stayed injury free and continued training with the same motivation, desire and confidence, that the tennis would come.

"He always gives the best of himself. We are talking about one of the greatest players in history and, as such, my faith in him is rock solid."
