Toni Nadal, director of the Mallorca tournament, which takes place this week, would necessarily have liked to attract his nephew, Rafa, in order to complete a nice table made up of Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Denis Shapovalov or Nick Kyrgios. But as the Spanish coach explained, Rafael Nadal is not used to playing the week before a Grand Slam tournament, especially with the permanent uncertainty around his left foot.
« It’s almost impossible for Rafa to play in the Mallorca Championships as he needs a rest before a Grand Slam. The week before, he prefers to train calmly and not compete.Toni told Marca, before putting Rafa behind Novak Djokovic in the favorites list.
