Toni Nadal, Rafa's uncle and coach, analyzed the good start of the season of his nephew and asserted that he is doing very well physically. 'For years Rafael had injuries.' 'He could not give his best on court, could not have the best attitude and so you lose confidence,' Toni told L'Equipe.
'He suffered wrist, foot and knee issues. But since he could play tennis injury-free, he was at a good level again. In Australia he played a good tournament, had a positive attitude and was close to his best level mentally and physically.' About Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray's early losses in Melbourne, Toni said that it's too soon to write them off. 'It was only a tournament, we need to wait to see what happens.
For me, Djokovic and Murray continue to be the favourites to win the next big titles.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: 'In 2015 I wanted to take some months off, I had much anxiety'
