Rafael Nadal says his belief that too many tournaments are played on hard courts hasn’t changed with his success on the surface this year — he’s simply trying to change the system.
The Spaniard, who retook the No. 1 ranking from Novak Djokovic this week, has a 27-1 record on hard courts this year, including capturing his second U.S. Open crown and three Masters titles.
His dominance on the surface has been the most surprising part of his comeback from a seven-month due to a left knee injury, which many believed would limit his action on hard courts.
Nadal said Tuesday before the Shanghai Masters tournament he still believes too many tournaments are played on the surface, but he’s done trying to influence ATP policymakers.
“I am really out of politics, and I don’t want to be in politics of the tennis anymore. I know even if you have strong ideas and even if you believe the changes are possible, I know there is always a wall there that is impossible ,” he said.
