Toni Nadal blasts ATP over ‘Unrealistic’ scheduling of tournaments

Rafael Nadal's former coach Toni Nadal has warned that the revamped 2020 ATP calendar has put veteran players at a disadvantage. Toni, who is the uncle of the 19-time grand slam champion, has described the packed calendar as ‘ugly’ during an interview with ESPN Deportes. All tennis tournaments have been either suspended or cancelled since March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The organizers intend to resume the Tour on August 14th at the Citi Open in Washington. “I have spoken to Rafa and he is doubting which tournaments to play,” Punto de Break quoted Toni telling ESPN Deportes. “The schedule is unrealistic, especially for veteran players, who cannot compete for so many weeks in a row.’ "I think it is a bit ugly what the ATP has done. This decision is totally against players like Rafa and Novak. With everything they have done for tennis for years, I am surprised that they do this. I think it would be key to raise something regarding the calendar because it is not feasible to concentrate so many tournaments in such a short time.” Source: ubitennis
