Rafael Nadal isn’t confident about World Tour Finals after suffering Paris Masters defeat.
Rafael Nadal suffered his first World Tour Finals defeat at the hands of Australian qualifier Bradley Klahn on Wednesday.
A late drop in form means the World number one is out of reach of the likes of Fernando Gonzalez, David Goffin and Milos Raonic.
Nadal’s best hope of staying on course to challenge for a fourth straight title is to win the Masters 1000 event at Queen’s Club on Friday.
However, the Spaniard is less sure of his chances than he was at Roland Garros last month where he suffered his most emphatic defeat of the year in a five-set thriller with Roberto Bautista Agut.
“I have to say, I’m not really worried. If I’m not in this position, then I would be happy and will celebrate that.”
“I am happy that I still have a chance, as I have a chance to get back at home to Madrid and I won’t be on my holidays. However, I’m not thinking about that. I want to have two good tournaments, as I have two good tournaments at home.”
“I have a lot of things to think that I want to think about at home. I need to think of my family and my children, my wife, and I don’t know if I will be able to do that but I have a lot to think about.”
“I have said to myself that I have to change if I don’t want to get to that level where I don’t want to be here. I don’t know if I will be getting to that level for many, many years. So, it’s important for me to work on that.”
“I don’t have to think about the tournament. I think I have to play even in the final of this tournament and not in the final of this tournament.”
Asked by World Number One Andy Murray, who defeated Nadal in round two of the ATP Finals, if he would do an interview if he was World number two, he replied: “If I will be, I will do one and then two.”
“I will let my game do the talking. I feel great, I have a great body. I feel great.
