According to this post on AFP, Uncle Toni said if results don’t improve Rafael Nadal could have a new coach in 2016.
“I think you need to ask Rafael,” Uncle Toni told AFP while promoting Rafa’s new academy.
But then he added, “Maybe if next year Rafael is playing not too good, then I think he can think about some changes in his game or in his team.”
Rafa has been firm he’s happy with his team. And it’s not the team’s fault he’s been playing down this year, it’s his. So in Rafa’s mind, there’s no need for a change.
“I always believed that when I am playing bad, when I am not winning, you don’t have to find excuses outside or reasons outside,” Nadal said at the US Open. “You have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, That’s my fault. That’s the real thing. It’s not the fault of other people.
“I had an amazing career with this team. I believe in my team. We are working a lot to find the right way. I think we are in the good way.”
If Rafa continues to struggle, who, if anyone, will Uncle Toni and Rafa bring in?
Nadal is in Beijing this week competing for a second China Open.
