Nadal exercises under the watchful eye of Djokovic’s coach
Spanish Rafael Nadal, world number one tennis player, trained this Saturday on the center court of the O2 pavilion in London to continue improving his serve and under the watchful eye of Goran Ivanisevic, coach of his rival for number one, Novak Djokovic, in the ATP Finals.

The Spaniard exercised for two hours, first on one of the outer courts and later on to the central one. In both sessions he was together with the Austrian Dominic Thiem, trained by the Chilean Nicolás Massú.

Nadal, who is recovering from a small abdominal strain that caused him to withdraw from the Masters 1,000 in Paris-Bercy, continued to increase the pace of service, fine-tuning this shot ahead of his debut on Monday.

During much of the training, Ivanisevic, Djokovic’s coach, was present on one of the courts supervising the movements of the Balearic, who could retain the world number one if he reached the final in the tournament that begins on Monday.

Nadal was accompanied on the track by his coach, Carlos Moyá, by his doctor, Ángel Ruiz-Cotorro, and by his physiotherapist, Rafa Maymó.

The man from Manacor will start his career in the Masters Cup, a tournament that he has never won, this Monday, in a night session, against the current defender of the title, the German Alexander Zverev. EFE
