Rafael Nadal: Spent the worst match on the ground in 14 years

Spaniard Rafael Nadal commented on his defeat against Italian Fabio Fognini in the semifinal of “Masters” in Monte Carlo.

“I knew what had to be done. I had a tough opponent, but I played just awful. In this case, defeat could not be avoided. It just wasn’t my day. Today I didn’t get anything, so I lost deservedly. It was my worst match on the ground in 14 years. I try to see everything positive, but I need to be able to lose. This tournament is of great importance to me, I could ideally start the ground season, but I missed this chance. You can discuss equipment and tactics for a long time, but the problem is that I could not find my game. There is nothing to explain. It was psychologically difficult for me to return after an injury.

You get used to playing at a high level and winning, but after injuries it is not easy. You lack practice and confidence. And although I continue to fight in every match, all these interruptions affect my stability. But it is she who allows me to achieve such success, especially on the ground, “the ATP press service quotes Nadal as saying.
