Rafael Nadal’s coach, Carlos Moya, returned to praise his pupil. Also, the adversities that the Majorcan face in Roland Garros. Carlos Moya knows one thing for sure, considering all the variations between Roland Garros as we know it.
The 2020 edition, pushed to the end of September due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which he stressed many times during his conversation with ATPTour.com: the combination of Rafael Nadal, the Terre battue of Paris, and Court Philippe-Chatrier is an essential foundation on which to create another bid.
Coach Moya said, “He’s won in the sun, in the rain, in snow, at altitude, at sea level. Some conditions favor him more and others less, but he’s managed to win tournaments in thousands of situations throughout his career. Rafa has an ability to adapt that nobody else does.”
“He(Nadal) Barely Remembers The Rome Match”: Carlos Moya
Discussing Nadal’s experience, he motivationally stated that one can always use the first week of the game to gradually find your form, pick up matches, and get into the tournament.
He also told how Nadal got through every round without difficulty, playing well, and even growing into it. Moreover, explaining how pretty good their week has been till now. Concluded upon how eagerly they’re looking forward to the new terms and a modern-day.
Also, talking about Rafael, he further stated, “It’s a new case, obviously. Coming to Paris in recent months without having won any tournaments … It has never happened before, I suppose. He had to cope with it. It wouldn’t be a problem, I was sure, and that’s been the case so far. He barely remembers the Rome match, but it served as a reminder to us that, while he is playing well, we have to tread carefully.”
