Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal shared his expectations for the Barcelona tournament.
“My job is to find myself again. I have repeatedly encountered difficulties, but coped with them, and everything went well. I need to forget about everything before that. I hope to prepare as best I can. If I don’t manage to perform successfully in Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros will be ahead. For me, the match with Fonini was one of the worst on the ground. I see no reason to deny it. What happened, happened. In Monte Carlo, I missed the opportunity to start the season perfectly. But now I have another chance.
The tournament in Barcelona is special. In physical terms, I feel healthy. Yes, in 2019, I have not won a single title yet. But I got to the finals of the Australian Open, the semi-final in Indian Wells, and now – the semi-final in Monte Carlo. Over the past year and a half, there have been too many ups and downs unrelated to tennis. When this happens, it is difficult to return to the old rhythm. But everything seems to be over. I hope I will be able to play well “, – quotes Nadal press service of the Tour.
