Nadal had a good time of it in Barcelona and Madrid in terms of stringing wins together. But he only saw off Zizou Bergs and facing Hurkacz who is seventh seed but not a proficient clay court specialist, it was a chance. But Nadal was pretty poor and his post match interview kind of dictated that.
In an honest admission, he said that he would try to play Roland Garros and try his best to get ready but was left ultimately deflated by that loss.
"I don't want to make a decision yet. There are two possible paths. I think I am not prepared to compete at Roland Garros because of what I have done today.

I'm stuck, but I will try as much as possible these two weeks," said Nadal during the Rome Open.
