These changes delay AMS Miami and Indian Wells one week because of the 'Basketball College', even though I respect that decision because it is important for them. But let us play anyway!", Nadal said. "The fact that a tennis world tour depends much on the American 'Basketball College' is absolute nonsense. We have to play four straight weeks, we have just three AMS on clay and, to top it all, we must play all of them in just four weeks, in addition to a major tournament like Barcelona. It’s crazy for all the European players and players specialized in clay", world-ranked no. 2 added. "I’m fed up with saying the same thing over and over, but it seems ATP authorities have another perspective, so I have to respect that". Nadal insisted on stating how much it means for him to play Davis Cup despite it affects his personal career "Playing Davis Cup is something special because you play for your country and for your teammates, that makes it so special. I’ve been there as much as I could and I’ll be there throughout my career. Yet, I think some changes must been made in order to make more fans get more interested in the tournament, and the players get more motivation to be part of it. This is so because the schedule is a mess". Still, he feels glad for his win over Nicolas Kiefer despite the tiredness for such a long stay in the United States. "I feel more tired than usual, I could feel it on the court", the player born in Manacor, Mallorca, explained. "It’s been tough, but I could win anyway. It’s a pity I couldn’t make profit of the break point chance in seven times. I’ve played fine, I guess", Nadal said about his match against Kiefer, who lost to him twice in just one week. "The first set was a battle, the one who lose it would never recover from the shock; then I managed to improve a little in the second set since I made profit of Kiefer’s falling apart", Nadal remarked.
