Rafa. Clay please it’s easier on my knees.

7 Oct

Rafa on the run.

Raphael Nadal is hopeful of a return to the ATP tour prior to the season end, and may make himself available for the Davis Cup final. This will come as a relief to many who held grave doubts for Rafa’s continued longevity on the tour.

Nadal himself is now choosing both his words – and his schedule very carefully. As the call for less emphasis on hardcourt training and events, particularly for developing junior players reaches a crescendo, Nadal maintains optimism for his future in the game. Uncle Toni Nadal insists he will not be hurrying Rafa back to the tour – but that “Rafa should be back on the practice courts in 10-15 days”

It wasn’t surprising to also hear Uncle Toni comments in a press conference yesterday in Sao Paulo, among the comments were a call to the ATP Tour to think about playing the year ending Masters final on clay – at least some of the time:

“They should think about a revaluation of the calendar,” said Rafa’s mentor, in view of the many tournaments that are played on hard courts “it is better to protect the health of the athletes.”
