Rafael Nadal speaks to the press after his 7-5, 6-3 victory over Daniel Evans in Indian Wells.
“For my body, is not good to have quick transitions from different surfaces, no? Hard to clay. If I play Miami, I will not have time to rest and not time to make a swift transition to the clay. I need to make those transitions step by step. I cannot make drastic changes like I did in the past, so that’s why I decided to stop after here and to have, like, three weeks before the clay court season starts for me.”
From Monte-Carlo 2003 to Indian Wells 2022… Rafa gets his 400th(!) Masters 1000 win!
