Rafael Nadal and his uncle Toni have different opinions often. When asked if the fact that five top-11 players missing the US Open influenced his run to the title in a good way, the world no. 1 had replied that it had helped and had added that winning a Grand Slam title was always difficult, though.
Toni had a different answer when he was asked the same question. ‘For me it’s nothing special [to finish with a victory]. No different than the other times when he won tournament of the Grand Slam,' said Toni. 'This tournament was different because we play against Dolgopolov, Rublev, good players but not the top.
I don’t want to say anything bad for our opponents but this time some [got injured] before playing – Murray, Djokovic, Wawrinka, Nishikori, Raonic. And then Federer lost. But I think Rafael has played well and was the best of the people who has played', said Toni, who won't follow his nephew by 2018 on the ATP Tour, or probably only in a big event like Roland Garros.'
