“Rafael Nadal is dissatisfied with his level”: Francisco Roig
Coming into the Grand Slam without much practice and only just recovering from surgery on his foot less than two weeks ago, it’s only natural that Nadal would struggle to adjust to the surface he was first stepping onto has since returned Wimbledon 2019 when he lost the semifinals Roger Federer as the 2020 grass season was affected by the pandemic and Nadal did not play on the surface in 2021 after injuring his leg French Open.
“It’s a bit like the dynamic that we’ve been seeing coming here for a couple of years. It’s difficult for us at the beginning. It’s a completely different dynamic on grass, we didn’t just play tournaments on grass. We used to play a few tournaments on this interface, but now we’re coming straight here.
“It’s not the first time Rafa has been upset about his level of training and it won’t be the last. This is normal because when you start on the grass. He’s been training in Mallorca for four or five days but it’s one thing to hit the ball from a standing start and not expect anything. It’s normal that it’s difficult at the beginning.” said Nadal’s coach Francisco Roig reported in comments by journalists Manuel Sanchez Gomez.
