Djokovic, Nadal say more time should be provided between French Open, WimbledonLondon: Top tennis stars Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have asked for an extra week of preparation between the French Open and Wimbledon to allow players to adjust to playing on grass after playing on clay.

"We need an extra week because it would work in the favour of players because it would give especially the top players a little bit more time to get used to the surface," Djokovic said.


Djokovic said the workload required for even the best to move from the slowest surface in the game to arguably the fastest would be aided by the proposed extra seven days.

"We are all trying to work for the good of the sport," Djokovic said.

Nadal agreed with his Serbian rival saying: "I always say it is great to play more and more on clay and grass because those surfaces are historic in the world of tennis. I will never have anything against playing more weeks on grass or clay".

"I think it`s easier for the physical performance, (and preventing) for the injuries for the players," he said.
