I read that Fed only had three days between the final and his first grass match. I guess Nadal the same. Three days is barely enough for a shower and some stretching, after traveling. If you have injuries from the long clay season, bad luck. No wonder the players are injured and all out before year-end. This is really not optimum. Even for the fans, they are not getting quality matches. After Fed's first match, he said, "I really didn't expect much out this match, after …," understandably.
