Toni Nadal, in an interview with Chain Ser, analyzed the decision of his nephew Rafael not to participate in the US Open 2020, a tournament that will be played from August 31 to September 13 in Flushing Meadows.
“It was something I was already meditating on in recent weeks. I have been in constant contact with my nephew to find out how he was and what he was planning to do and the truth is that he had some doubts about whether or not to play the US Open. I think he has made a prudent decision. One when he knows that he is in a risky situation what he wants is to be close to home. In New York you don’t know if everything will be controlled or not, so he has decided not to expose himself excessively, “he said openly.
Regarding Rafa’s preparation for the return of the circuit, he assured that “Rafael has been training very hard during these weeks and I can say that he is in good physical shape. Today I have been witnessing his training and the truth is that I see him very well.”
He also said that without a doubt the objective will be to be the absolute dominator of the European brick dust and to match Roger Federer in the amount of Grand Slams, his nephew must win Roland Garros: “Now that Rome and Paris are approaching, Rafa already knows that You are at a time when you must prepare well if you want to do great things. “
