SAO PAULO (AP) - Rafael Nadal says the ATP is not doing enough to protect players’ health, claiming the increased number of tournaments on hard courts will lead to long-term injuries and affect players after they retire.
Nadal says leaders of the men’s tour aren’t thinking of ways to lengthen players’ careers.
He says tennis is the only major sport where players are forced to play on cement, and it’s a health issue that must involve doctors and players.
