Carlos Moya, coach of world number two Rafael Nadal, holds the full belief in him and believes that Nadal will have an excellent end to the tournament. After a fulfilling win in the quarter-finals, Nadal will play against Diego Schwartzman. Additionally, Schwartzman earlier defeated the 12 times champion at Roland Garros in the Italian Open just before this event.
However, coach Carlos Moya is positive regarding the upcoming match. In addition to this, the coach also has full faith in the game of the 19 times Grand Slam winner. Besides, he also trusts the adapting ability of the Spaniard and says that the performance history of Nadal is proof of his play in Paris.
“Still Roland Garros, Philippe Chatrier”: Coach
Moya said, ”We trust Rafa’s history in this tournament. Although the conditions are different, it is still Roland Garros, and it is still Philippe Chatrier. If we do not play “history,” well, it is useless, and Rafael Nadal knows in which moment of his history he is located.”
Additionally, Moya also shared that Nadal is here in the semi-finals, even in Paris’s different conditions. And while he is here at this position, we will expect something amazing from him. And that he will give his best.
Moya added, ”Rafa can adapt to all kinds of conditions. He’s had the courage and a great attitude since the start of the tournament. We know the conditions, and we have to fight with all the weapons we have. Rafa indeed has to change several things to adapt to. Confidence in him is total. It’s still Roland Garros, Philippe Chatrier, and the best of five sets.”
Rafael Nadal has 19 Grand Slam titles to his name, and if he wins this 13th title at the Roland Garros, the Spaniard would equal Federer, Swiss legend’s record of 20 Grand Slams. However, with still the semi-finals and finals to go, it will not be the most straightforward task for the ‘King of Clay.’
