Rafael Nadal complains about the court conditions at the indoor clay court event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Apparently Nadal slipped and fell during a doubles match on Tuesday.
“This court is bad for the health of the players and I hope someone takes action,” he told reporters. “My team and I are going to talk to the organization and see what we can fix.”
Nadal and David Nalbandian defeated Spain's Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, 6-3, 3-6, 11-9, in the doubles match.
Nadal also was said to have complained about ‘crumbling’ lines and the balls being too light and hard to see.
I hate situation like this. With Rafa running every ball, this might be very dangerous... Why they can't prepare good court there? And why the hell is this tournament indoors? It would be much better for Rafa to play VdM, BA and ACA...
Yeah I don't know why he decided to play 2 weeks in a row (with DOUBLES!) right after comeback. Probably Sao Paulo paid more than BA.
And I think it's indoors because the weather might cause problems otherwise (could be rain and thunderstorms I see), only my guess.
