Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray have warmed up for the start of their ATP Melbourne campaigns by training together on the hard courts of Melbourne Park.
Ben Rothenberg, who writes about tennis for The New York Times, posted on Twitter:
Hot and cold patches from both on the groundstrokes, causing a good bit of muttering from both, but they both looked pretty healthy as far as I could tell which is the most important thing at this stage, two weeks out from #AusOpen. Rafa’s serve, also, looked pretty dang good. Murray left after the practice set but Nadal is hanging around to work on his backhand slice with Moya.
