Rafael Nadal bans Diego Schwartzman from academy - but French Open star hits back!

The world No 1 faces Schwartzman in the French Open quarter-finals this afternoon but the stars are now all-too familiar with one another after practicing at the Rafael Nadal Academy.

Nadal is slightly worried about Schwartzman’s current form as he wants to avoid a shock exit at Roland Garros.

The Spaniard joked that he was stopping the world No 12 from practicing with him anymore because it makes him a better player.

But Schwartzman has hit back by claiming he has already stolen Nadal’s secrets to success - and he is hoping to unleash them on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

“I took his secrets. He has all the recipes,” Schwartzman said.

“What I can say is I had a great time there, like last year, I'm really very grateful to him and his team.

“Now I'm going to try and enter the court and beat him and take advantage of all I learned with him.”

Nadal has won all five previous ATP matches against Schwartzman and does not want to wreck his record - hence the ‘ban’.

“I practiced 45 minutes with Diego,” said Nadal.

“I played with him at the academy, but I'm never going to invite him again, because every time he comes, he comes out much better (smiling).

“I’m not going to tell you a story where there is no story. I played in Rome, I practiced on Wednesday 45 minutes with him, but that's about all.

“But I'm happy to see Diego here. It's his second time, and he seems to feel okay. And I hope I'll continue being operational and that we can prepare more.

“We only had three days together at home and I had to rest.”

This shows they get along well.
I like the fact that they are joking despite what's at stake.
