Rafael Nadal's uncle and coach, Toni Nadal, has landed in Miami to accompany his nephew after the good tournament in Indian Wells. Before he took the plane Toni spoke to Cadena Ser about the loss against Novak Djokovic and analyzed Rafa's possible path in Miami.
'The match against Djokovic was a moral victory. He was very competitive in the first set, we were closer. Djokovic is unreachable at the moment. If he keeps going this way, it will be difficult to stop him.'
'Rafa landed from California with good feelings in terms of game. Rafael's level was very good in the last matches in Indian Wells. Now we have to confirm in Miami the good feelings to face the clay-court season with good expectations.'
Nadal will debut in Florida against L. Mayer or Dzumhur on Saturday (HERE
full draw): 'It's a difficult draw, like the Indian Wells one. I do not look draws because to me it seems first rounds are tough. Mayer is a complicated opponent considering that's a debut, Raonic is in good form, it's a complicated draw.
