Carlos Moya: 'Sometimes I am Nadal's coach. I never stop being his friend'

Carlos Moya has been in the Rafael Nadal's team for more than a year now. Moya brought some new things in the Nadal's game, and although he said that most of the credit should be given to the player, he definitely covers an important part of Nadal's success.

'The idea that we wanted would not happen from night to morning, we wanted a more aggressive Rafa, with a better second serve... and what you do is to be consistent evolving little by little', Moya told AS. 'The knee didn't allow us to work much at the end of last year, but he is playing well and confident.' Asked how much Nadal can go far, Moya replied: 'It's not math.

He needs to keep being at this rhythm and play well, but opponents have their plasn too and are very able to beat anyone.' How does his relationship with Rafa work? 'You have time for everything. Sometimes I am coach and I never stop to be his friend, but it's clear that it's clear that there are tense moments are relaxed ones.

He is very respectful with bis family, friends and team. It makes everything easier.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer says he hopes his kids won't play in professional tennis
