September 26, Beijing time Nadal said that this year's French Open was "the toughest condition in history" for him. He believes that there are many reasons, including the slowness and weight of the French Open.
"The temperature in Paris today is only 9 degrees, which is a bit extreme in outdoor tennis matches." Nadal said worriedly about the weather conditions in the French Open.
Speaking of the French Open this year, Nadal is a bit uncomfortable. "I used it when I was training in Mallorca. The climate there is very warm, but the speed of the ball is very slow and the ball is heavy. I think this kind of ball is not suitable for playing on clay. This is my personal opinion."
"I will accept this challenge. I really hope that the organizing committee can improve in the next few years. This is also out of consideration for the health of athletes. Because I think super heavy balls are good for players' elbows and shoulders. dangerous."
"But I will look at this with a positive attitude, and show my best state to adapt to these conditions."
This year, the 12th French Open champion Nadal will play as the No. 2 seed in the first round against the Belarusian Gerasimov. He is in the lower half with Tim, Wawrinka, Murray and others.
