“I never was in control of the match, I didn’t know how to win a point,” said Nadal, who intimated he will not show up next year unless the controversial blue clay surface he abhors is modified.
Nadal’s perfect record on the dirt for 2012 was marred as Madrid native Verdasco clawed out the opening set to stun multiple Monte Carlo and Barcelona champion Nadal, who, though he dug out the second set, succumbed in the decider. “Movement is very important for me and I couldn’t move.
I couldn’t hit ball the way I wanted. I lost because I deserved to lose.”
