Talking Nadal in Athens!

Here is an Article that Nadal has got an invite to play with Moya in Athens...

Nadal receives an invitation to play with Moyá in Athens

The Manacorí affirms that it gives him "much to look forward to” and that there is the possibility of winning a medal in doubles.

Rafael Nadal will be able to carry out one of his dreams: to participate in the Olympics. Yesterday it became a reality with the confirmation of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) which offered him a special invitation (wild card) to attend Athens 2004. In addition, the Manacorí youth will have the honor of playing in the doubles competition with the Majorcan, Carlos Moyá. For the first time, two Majorcans will share the tennis court in the Olympics. However, it will not be the first time that they play together: they already did it last year in the Swedish tournament of Baastad, in which they won their first match and then fell in the second round.

Yesterday Nadal expressed his satisfaction of being able to go to Athens. "It gives me great pleasure to play in the Olympics, and more since it’s with a fellow Majorcan", admitted the Manacorí, who anticipates his return to the courts to be next Saturday in the tournament of Santa Ponça. "We have many chances to win a medal, because the best/main doubles players do not tend to go to the Olympic Games", explained Nadal, who was injured on April 16 (in the quarterfinals of Estoril) and who will return to the ATP circuit on the clay courts of Baastad (Sweden).

Also Arantxa

The ITF also confirmed that Arantxa Sánchez Vicario will play in his fifth Olympics. In Athens, Spain will have Carlos Moyá, Rafeal Nadal, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo, Feliciano López, Conchita Martínez, Magüi Serna, Anabel Medina, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and María Antonia Sánchez Lorenzo.
