Madrid, Apr 29 (EFE).- Spanish tennis great Rafael Nadal said his struggles at the start of the 2015 season, his worst string of results in a decade, are moments in an athlete's career that are unavoidable.

"I know that moments like what I'm experiencing now have to come, have come before and also won't be the last, but I'm also convinced that they can be overcome by working hard every day," the 28-year-old said in a Eurosport publicity event Wednesday in the Spanish capital.

Speaking ahead of his participation in next week's Madrid Masters, Nadal said that major French Open tune-up event "has been a tournament that always has been very special, where my victories have been more emotional."

Regarding the possibility of lifting his 10th championship trophy at Roland Garros, Nadal said he has the peace of mind and experience of having done it in the past" and stressed that "it's the most important tournament of the year" for him.

Nadal, who already holds the record for French Open singles titles (9) and is the five-time defending champion, said Djokovic, who has lost to Nadal three years in a row in Paris, "at the moment is the big favorite (to win) everything" and "deserves to win Roland Garros."

Nevertheless, "there will be 127 other players who will want to play well and win."

Asked about his greatest moments in the sport, Nadal said the Wimbledon final in 2008, when he edged Swiss great Roger Federer in what many consider the greatest match of all time, was his most emotional victory.
