Nadal Eyes Successful Aussie Open 

By Ikenga Chronicles January 16, 2017
Rafael Nadal has expressed belief that he can win another Grand Slam in his career.
The Spanish tennis star who spoke to newsmen said ‎he would have returned to Spain fishing and playing golf if he did not believe he could achieve more.
Nadal will begin another quest for a 15th major triumph at the Australian Open on Tuesday and looking to re- establish himself among the elite after another year blighted by injury . Recall that the  30 – year – old  withdraw from the French Open and Wimbledon last summer due to a problem on his left wrist.
He also ended his last season in October due to fitness issues after a‎ fourth-round exit to Lucas Pouille at the US Open and  a first – round loss to Viktor Troicki in Shanghai .
Nadal appointed fellow Spaniard and former world number one , Carlos Moya , to his coaching team in December and then played well in Brisbane earlier this month , before losing to Milos Raonic in three tight sets .
“If I don’t see myself , and if I don’t believe that I can be competitive , and when I mean ‘ competitive ’ , it is fighting for the things that I fight for during the last 10 years , I will be probably be playing golf or fishing at home .”Nadal said.
“I am being honest with this. If I am here it is because I believe . ”
However, his uncle Toni is expected to continue be his primary coach but Moya , who also lives in Mallorca , can bring a fresh perspective after splitting from Raonic in December .
“Carlos, more than anything , is a good friend of mine ” Nadal said.
“I talk with him often . It doesn’t matter if he stays in my team or not, no ? I have a great relationship with him. In December , after knowing that he will stop with Milos, we talked with him , myself and my uncle.”
“For me is a very good option, no ? I know him very well . I know he wants the best for me. He knows my personality , he knows my game, too. ”
Meanwhile, Nadal plays Germany ’s Florian Mayer in the first round on Tuesday when much attention will be on the Spaniard’s physical condition and , in particular , his troublesome wrist.
