It takes years for athletes to come to terms with the end and to make the announcement. Why should Nadal retire? He's getting lots of good money offers and endorsements. Do you think Nadal will even have 1/10 of his fanbase when he's retired. Nobody cares about retired athletes. He's not retiring for a few years anyway.
