The 14-time Grand Slam winner said that he is only concentrating on singles matches right now. “I don’t play doubles often. Not playing with Leander anytime soon,” Rafael Nadal said. Nadal was paired with Paes Paris Masters in last November.
Regarding his personal form on the professional circuit, Nadal admitted that he wasn’t in top form for most part of the year. The year saw Nadal failing to win a single Grand Slam for the first time in a decade.
“India is close to my heart. A wing of my federation works here in Anantapur (Andhra Pradesh). I am happy to be here and a part of IPTL,” Nadal said at the RK Khanna Tennis Complex.
“The year 2015 wasn’t my best, but I am happy with the way I played for the last three months. I hope to begin 2016 with that sane form and attitude. I have enjoyed playing in the IPTL so far, Manila is a venue I have not played in a lot, so enjoyed the experience”
“I thank the kids for coming here (at the tennis clinic). I request them to cheer the Indian Aces.” he said.
