Nadal hoping for improved 2012

Posted 11-02-2011 at 03:40 PM by Philip Oliver
It has not been the greatest year of Rafael Nadal’s professional career in 2011, so it is understandable he is considering a new approach next year in order to get back on top of the tennis world.

The world number two has lost his top spot to Novak Djokovic and been forced to play second fiddle as the Serbian won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open – with Nadal at least holding onto his ‘king of clay’ title by regaining his French Open Grand Slam trophy. People following the tennis betting should remember this.

Nadal has been beaten in seven finals – of which six were defeats to Djokovic – and that is not the type of statistic usually associated with the 10-time Grand Slam champion.

There has been some high-profile criticism throughout the tennis world that the top players are forced to play too many tournaments, and that is leaving the likes of Nadal and Djokovic struggling with tiredness towards the end of the season. Those who bet on tennis should bear this in mind.

The Paris Masters and the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London are the two tournaments last on Nadal’s schedule for the season and now all eyes will focus on 2012, where the Spaniard will be looking to add to his Grand Slam title collection.

“I don’t know about my calendar yet, the season is been long for me. It has been a very positive season for me but at the same time tough season,” said Nadal.
“Hopefully I can start the next season with more power, with a few things better.”

Nadal will also lead Spain in the Davis Cup final against Argentina in December in Seville, with the hosts having next lost to their opponents in the history of the competition.
