Aussie tennis star Marc Polmans has been seeking a breakthrough since he entered into ATP Tour. The 23-years-old expressed his appreciation for the 20-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal in a recent conversation with Tennis Australia.
Even though Polmans did not win any titles in the ATP tour so far, he has won 12 titles in the ITF men’s world tour, including three challengers.
World No.124 never played against Rafael Nadal but Spaniard and his forehand very inspired him.
Marc Polmans said, “I’d really love to play doubles with Rafa (Nadal). It would be great to hear his tactical view of the game. I’m sure he’d have good insights. Just to be on the court with Rafa would be special.”
“I’ve never got to play against him, but I have been able to train with him during the Australian Open. To be in a competitive situation with him on the court would be awesome.”, Victorian added.
“I’ve Been Lucky Enough To Train With Him(Nadal)”: Marc Polmans
Having training experience with Rafael Nadal, Australian emphasized Spaniard’s forehand, which is one of the deadliest on the ATP Tour.
Polmans continued, “It was seriously cool. I’ve practised with him three or four times now and been lucky enough to train with him on his days off when he’s preparing for a match, so we’ve hit for up to two hours.”
Rafael Nadal’s forehand topspin is totally different from anyone else hitting on the tour because he creates a sort of rotation on the ball.
“Just the ball he hits is not quite the same as any other player I’ve faced. His forehand is absolutely massive. Having all his coaches on the court and hearing him discuss his game is just awesome.”, Marc concluded.
