Rafael Nadal’s coach Carlos Moya believes that Roger Federer has made a good choice in deciding to participate in the French Open this year, insisting the Swiss star ‘will not struggle’, Tennis World USA report.
The 37-year-old is set to return to the French Open this year, after choosing to skip the Grand Slam in 2017 and 2018 in order to focus on grass court season.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion has won the competition just once throughout his career, back in 2009 where he defeated Robin Soderling in the final.
And when Moya was asked about Federer’s decision to compete at Roland Garros, the Spaniard admitted the veteran won’t struggle.
Roger is so good that he will not struggle.
It’s the surface that makes him a little bit more uncomfortable, but he won on it. It suits to him.
Nadal, who made the final of the Australian Open in January, eventually losing to a dominant Novak Djokovic, will be looking to claim his 12th French Open title and 18th Grand Slam when the tournament gets underway at the end of May.
