Rafael Nadal wants to come back at his A-level by placing his trust on the things about which he”s most certain. To start with, the Spaniard will not be using the new racket strings that he”d been using since the pre-season this year. Instead, he will go back to using his earlier racket strings.
He is back to using the strings he has had since the start of his career that helped him find the top-spin that over the years hurt so many opponents. From Indian Wells, where he”s next playing, which takes place this week, he will be using the older racket strings hoping that it”s the right decision for him.
This year, Rafa reached the final in Doha where he lost to Novak Djokovic 6-1 6-2. He was then beaten by Fernando Verdasco in the first round at the Australian Open. His bad momentum kept continuing in February, where he was defeated by Dominic Thiem in Buenos Aires and by Pablo Cuevas in Rio de Janeiro, both losses coming in the semi-finals.
