Tennis ace Rafael Nadal has been playing a lot of tennis lately. The Spaniard was most recently seen at the French Open 2021 and in a rare instance, did not end up winning the tournament. After that, he announced that he would not be competing at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 followed by the Tokyo Olympics.
Recently, his coach Carlos Moya reflected on Rafa’s decision and revealed that the clay-court season has taken a toll on the 35-year-old. Tennis on the clay surface is physically demanding. Due to the tedious season so far, Rafael Nadal deserves to take a break.

The 44-year-old coach stated, “The clay-court tour was very tough, with a lot of physical and mental pressure. Rafa finished exhausted. He is going to take a well-deserved rest, this is a marathon, a long-distance race in which hard decisions have to be made and he has considered that the best thing is to stop to come back full of strength.”
Rafael Nadal needs a break to come back in better shape
In the past, Rafa has been in similar situations, which have led to him skipping certain events in the following period.

The former French Open winner added, “Rafa two years ago reached a point of great mental fatigue that was very difficult to get out of, and now he has interpreted that he was close to that again. He cannot afford a Grand Slam if he is not 100%, for all that his image implies, for prestige and for how he is.”
Speaking about Nadal this year, he had a good clay-court season. During that period, he won titles in Barcelona and Rome. After that, he lost in the semifinal at Roland Garros. He will take a break and resume his season towards the build-up of the US Open 2021.

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov
The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.
The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.
The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.
World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”
