Rafael Nadal explains how he deals with stress

Assumptions often lead us down the wrong path. A journalist asks Rafael Nadal, after he wins the US Open (I paraphrase); 'how did you remain so calm in the 1st set when things weren't going well?'

Rafa explains patiently and kindly to the journalist (and us) that he wasn't calm! Then he goes on to explain what he does to deal with the unrest in his mind. 

Putting it in a nutshell, Rafael gives priority to his body awareness above his thoughts. 

Listen to this amazing hero and enjoy!
