Famed player Rafael Nadal has told reporters that he has been hesitant in joining any debates about the future of the Madrid Open
The Madrid Open is set to start soon, and some of the best players in the world have already admitted their desire to take Nadal’s crown during the games at the Spanish capital.
Madrid has held the tournament annually since 2002, and it has become one of the biggest international tennis tournaments in the world.
The future of the Madrid Open, however, has been called into question, as the city has explained that they have no desire to host the tournament from 2021 onward.
Nadal, having won the Open five times in the past, has refused to take a stand against the government’s decision concerning the future of the Open.
He has since told reporters, “I think the town hall will have to make that decision. It’s not ours to make. I will be the town hall who will decide if they want to continue to bet for a tournament of this size of if they prefer to invest in something else, of if they want to bet on a sport like this.”
At the same time, Nadal has praised the tournament, saying that the reason for tournament’s success is thanks to the Spanish people’s love of the game.
“I think we have a great tournament here in Spain, one of the highest levels, and a really high-level tournament.”
