Rafael Nadal has opened up about his amicable split with long-time coach Uncle Toni at the Mexican Open in Acapulco where he is currently competing as the second seed.
Toni has been part of Rafa’s coaching stable for nearly two decades during which the Spaniard “King of Clay” attained the World No 1 spot and won 14 Grand Slam titles.
So when she popped up at the Australian Open for the first time in 10 years to watch him overcome Frenchman Gael Monfils in the fourth round, it was always going to be a topic of discussion. “Have you guys been having some some fun here in Australia as well? She needs a special entry.” Nadal thought long and hard about his next answer before producing the sort of timing that has fans wondering if he might soon be adding another Australian Open trophy to his cabinet.
What followed next for Nadal was probably tougher than anything he had just endured on court as commentator Jim Courier grilled him about her presence. ” Nadal replied it had been great and while it was disappointing that he dipped out at the Brisbane International, it presented them with an opportunity to visit Sydney which they both enjoyed. “You know, uhhhh, better we stop here.” Perello enjoyed the awkward exchange as much as anyone, meaning Nadal won’t have too much explaining to do and can focus on his quarter-final against Milos Raonic.
