Rafael Nadal has said that he is not planning to participate in the Dubai Tennis Championships in February, reports Emirates Business. “I don’t think [I’ll play in Dubai],” Nadal said after winning the Capitala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. “It depends if I have very bad results in Doha, Australia and Rotterdam [in the coming month], then maybe, but it’s not on my calendar.
Nadal said he wants to get some rest ahead of his busy schedule. “I didn’t stop at the end of last season. I practiced for two-and-a-half weeks and I hope to have good tournaments [before Dubai] and then have three weeks off later. I have to rest a little bit and prepare for playing the American season and clay season because after that there is no chance to stop,” he said.
