Rafael Nadal: "I believe in my team"

Rafael Nadal insists that he 'believes' in his team after facing questions about dropping his uncle Toni as coach.

Rafael Nadal has responded to suggestions that he should drop his uncle Toni as coach by claiming that he 'believes' in his team.

The Spaniard has had an inconsistent period in the sport due to injuries, and there have been calls for the 14-time Grand Slam champion to make a change.

When asked by reporters why he does not want to bring in another coach, Nadal said: "I had an amazing career with this team. I believe in my team. We are working a lot to find the right way. I think we are in the good way.

"I don't know what's going on in the future, but the real thing is if I have to change something is myself, not the people around me. If I am able to change myself, to play again with confidence, to play again with less nerves that I played for a lot of moments this year, I am able to touch the ball the way that I am touching the ball this week of practice before the US Open, I will be again where I want to be.

"So is not a question of coach. Is not a question of physiotherapist or physical trainer. Is a question of myself."

Nadal reached the third round of the US Open on Wednesday with a straight-sets win over Diego Schwartzman.
