Rafael Nadal admits he is struggling to find his best form but feels he isn’t too far away from returning to winning ways.
The Spanish star was knocked out of the Monte Carlo Masters on his favoured surface of clay in the semi-finals by eventual winner Fabio Fognini last week.
Nadal will now bid to pick up his first title of 2019 at the Barcelona Open, and he is confident he can mount a serious challenge as he seeks to hit top form ahead of his French Open defence. “In Monte Carlo, I took a step forward with how I was a week before,” he told the ATP Tour website. “I lost a good opportunity to start the season in a fantastic way.
But now I’m going to have another one [in Barcelona]. “This is a very special tournament that is part of the history of tennis and of my own. I have another morning to practice, and we will see how we are doing.
On a physical level, I’m more or less well” He added: “It is true that I have not won any titles, but I reached the final in Australia, semi-finals in Indian Wells and now semi-finals again in Monte-Carlo.
The year is not bad and I’m third in the [ATP Race To London], but with more problems than I would have liked.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
