From a Nadal Presser:
Rafa Nadal has lost his last seven matches against world number one Novak Djokovic but the Spaniard denies that he has a burning obsession to beat the Serb.
The pair last met in January's Australian Open final when Djokovic clinched the title for a third time with an epic 5-7 6-4 6-2 6-7 7-5 victory that lasted almost six hours.
While Nadal enjoys a 16-14 career advantage over the Serb, he has been beaten on all types of surfaces in their past seven encounters, all of them in finals.
"I say it always the same, I want to improve for me," world number two Nadal said while preparing for the Indian Wells ATP tournament in the California desert.
"I don't want to improve to beat Novak, to beat Roger (Federer) or to beat nobody. I try my best every day to improve my level of tennis, to be a better player year by year.
So whats the point of improving if your goal is not to beat Djokovic, Federer, Murray etc if you happened to be Nadal. This is just speech which makes no sense in the English language. I feel that all Nadal's interview should be done in his native language otherwise this is the result. Ha. You want to improve and your plan is not to beat anybody. What is that ?
