Earlier this week Nadal named a few players he worries about losing to on clay. Novak Djokovic, Grigor Dimitrov, Kei Nishikori and Alexander Zverev were the players he mentioned.

Australian doubles legend Todd Woodbridge has now also had a go by naming “three players capable of beating Rafael Nadal in the coming weeks”.

“There are only three players who I see have the ability to stop Rafa from completing yet another sweep of the year’s big claycourt titles – Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Potro and Dominic Thiem”.

Tennismash.com has a detailed explanation from Woodbridge.

And now for today’s “surprise revelation” in Express Sport. It concerns Nadal again as his coach Carlos Moya has says the recent injuries meant “lost confidence in his body and caused doubts (in his mind)”.
