Patrick Mouratoglou, the former coach of Serena Williams, believes that Rafael Nadal will be fit and ready for the French Open in May. Nadal recently announced that he would not be participating in this month’s Barcelona Open as he continues to recover from a leg injury he sustained at the Australian Open in January. With the French Open just a few weeks away, the Spanish tennis star faces a race against time to get fit.
However, Mouratoglou is confident that Nadal will be able to overcome his fitness issues and be in top shape for the second Grand Slam of the year. The coach believes that Nadal’s number one goal is to win more Grand Slams than any other player, and he knows that his best chance of achieving this is at the French Open.
Mouratoglou acknowledges that Nadal’s body is getting more and more worn out with each passing year, making it harder for him to maintain his level of play. Nevertheless, he believes that Nadal is fully committed to giving his best in training and matches, and this dedication will help him to arrive in Paris in the best shape possible.
Nadal has won a record 13 French Open titles, and he will be hoping to add another to his impressive tally this year.
