Rafael Nadal calls physio and doctor after dropping set to Fritz in Indian Wells final

Nadal had downplayed any sign of a physical issue after his three hour and 12 minute victory over Alcaraz, despite needing the trainer for his pec. “Physically I feel well. I played three hours, almost three hours the other day, three hours today,” he said after the semi-final.

“In terms of physical performance, I don’t feel very tired. Here with the conditions, I always felt good physically here. I think I never lost a match here for a physical issue, in terms of being tired. I am quite well, honestly. I can’t complain. I am enjoying. Yeah, I had plenty of tough battles this week, but I still alive, so.”
