Toni Nadal: "I hope I will convince Rafael to come and play in Stuttgart next year"

Like every year, Toni Nadal is present in Stuttgart as "ambassador" for the Mercedes Cup tournament in Germany. On Friday, the uncle and coach of World No.2 Rafael Nadal, revealed how Rafa could decide to play in Stuttgart next year, when the tournament will become a grass court event. The three-year deal between Nadal and the tournament of Halle has expired this season, so that could be a perfect timing.

The tournament will be moved in date and will be played one week after the French Open. "Stuttgart is a great tournament to prepare Wimbledon. Conditions are very similar to London, so I hope I will convince Rafael to come and play here next year" revealed Toni.

Edwin Weindofer, tournament director, was obviously very excited at the idea: "it would obviously be a great thing if Rafael Nadal were to play here. We will work on which economical proposal to present to Rafa's manager, Carlos Costa. We will do our best, that's for sure".

Toni also talked about young rising star Alexander Zverev, who won an ATP challenger being only 17 years old. "He has a great potential" said Toni, "the only thing he can do is to keep on working hard, and results will come".

Finally Uncle Nadal also joked about the World Cup, which sees Germany in the final against Argentina: "Germans have an extraordinary team in soccer, in tennis not so much..."

Mistake...what is the point in playing within one week after french open.
Nadal needs rest after french open..if he had to play within 1 week after french open...there is no meaning for the wimbledon allowing gap between FO and Wimby.
There should be a gap of at least 10 days after FO..before Nadal can play on grass.

Because he can't anymore win even Mugcelona 500, let alone some grass 500.

Hopefully not

RG, week rest, Queens, week rest, Wimbledon. It is so easy. Unless Toni expects Nadal to lose early in RG next year?

Djokovic doesn't play a 250 from Belgrade 2011 and his 500 are Beijing and Dubai
