Rafael Nadal’s coach Carlos Moya has revealed that he and the Spaniard have not always agreed on the way to approach matches and how to improve certain aspects of his game, according to a report on the Express.

The world number one is in incredible form and is looking to defend his French Open crown this year.

Nadal has already won the Monte Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open and the Italian Open during the clay-court season and is the favourite to lift the trophy in Paris.

However, his hunger to continue improving even though he is one of the best players on the planet means that he can push himself too far at times, something that his coach Moya isn’t too keen on.

When speaking about Nadal, Moya said:

He can keep improving every year and I tell him a few things and he is telling me things that he does not agree with. But we try to reach an agreement on how to do things.

I am not always right and there is a few things which we discuss. I am not always right with what I see from outside – but he is the one who is feeling things on the court and we try to sort out a few things.

He is a perfectionist and he wants to do well. He wants to be perfect on the court. He wants to be the best and he is working very hard to be that.
