Djokovic and Nadal meet up in business class on flight to Indian Wells

Speaking to El Objective last week about his injury woes over the past few weeks, Nadal said: “I have had some discomfort in recent weeks and I am a little bit on the limit. At this point, every blow I take, every injury, is a setback not only in tennis and physically but also mentally.

“I trust the 100% to be in Indian Wells, it is a very special tournament for me. I don’t know if it will be the last time I am going to play it, but there are options that yes, so I would like to be in Indian Wells.” Following the Indian Wells, Nadal could head to the Miami Open, having reached the final of the competition on five occasions without lifting the trophy.
