The Spaniard admitted his physical problems that left him in midyear out of tournaments like Wimbledon, Toronto and London, reports Efe.

"I need to recover a little bit the electricity in my legs. I need to move faster to hit more forehands. I need to create pain for my opponent," he added.

Nadal, who lost 3-6, 6-7 (3-7) to crash out from the second round of the tournament, had words of praise for Troicki, saying the Serb deserved to win more than he did.
