Cordoba, Spain:

Rafael Nadal says tennis' overcrowded calendar needs an immediate fix or players may examine tougher options to force a change, including a possible strike.

Nadal beat Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-0, 6-1 on Friday to put Spain ahead of France 1-0 in the Davis Cup semifinals, the match coming only four days after the second-ranked Spaniard lost to Novak Djokovic in the U.S. Open final.

Nadal has complained before about the overcrowded calendar but this time, when asked if a strike would be possible, he said players may have to use "strong action" if necessary.

Nadal says an "evolution" in the calendar must be made or "we might get to a place where we might not want to be."
