Clearly Rafa was upset in his press conference last night after his 3rd round defeat to Fernando Verdasco.
The court was once again the aim of his frustration and he has threatened to stay away next year.
“Being able to move is very important for me and if I can’t move well, I can’t hit the ball well either.
“If things don’t change, this will be one less tournament on the calendar for me.
“This surface destabilises the game. It is a completely different game and I don’t want to take risks.”
It will be very interesting to see what does happen in 2013. Will the players carry out threats to not attend?
