Re: ***Allez Rafael à Paris!!!***

^^ Rafa could do with cheers in all languages of the world right now.

From the tournament site:
Quote:
22/10 - 13h00
Nadal is coming to Paris

Having been eliminated at the quarter-final stage in Madrid, Rafael Nadal has already begun to focus on the BNP Paribas Masters, in which he will be competing for the very first time.


With the season almost at an end, how are you feeling?
I feel really good. I’m playing well at the moment and I’m going to do my best in the last two tournaments I’ve got left between now and the end of the year. I think I played some decent tennis in Madrid, but in the quarters I came up against Tomas Berdych (editors’ note: the winner of the 2005 BNP Paribas Masters) who produced a great match. But based on my overall end-of-season form, I hope to do well in the BNP Paribas Masters, and then in the Masters Cup in Shanghai.

Does it mean something special to you to come back to Paris, where you’ve won your two Grand Slam titles?
Yes, absolutely. I’ve always said that Paris is my favourite city and I’ve obviously got some fantastic memories of it. I always love coming back to Paris and I’m sure competing in the BNP Paribas Masters there will be quite emotional for me.

It’s going to be your first BNP Paribas Masters. What are your aims for the tournament?
It’s no secret that Taraflex is not my favourite surface… Indoors, I feel more at ease on GreenSet. But as usual, I’ll give it everything and will hopefully perform well in this city that I love.

First you’re taking part in the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris, then in the Shanghai Masters Cup, two events you’ve never entered before. What are you hoping to get out of this end of season?
I’ve got two very important tournaments ahead of me and I’m really hoping to do well in both. I’m also very excited at the prospect of my first Masters Cup which, like the BNP Paribas Masters, I had to pull out of last year due to injury.

http://www.fft.fr/bnpparibasmasters/...en.asp?ID=2116
Edit. Oh, I almost forgot. The draw will be made Friday 27 Oct at 6.30 at BNP Headquarters.

Buena suerte, Rafa!

I'm allergic to morons.

Struggling Nadal blames fatigue for slide

PARIS (AP) -For Rafael Nadal, the explanation is clear: fatigue and a heavy schedule.

The second-ranked Spaniard has not reached the semifinals of a tournament since losing to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final three months ago.

``I had a lot of matches in the first half of the season and my muscles were very tired,'' Nadal said Tuesday during a conference call leading to next week's Paris Masters. ``Mentally, too ... it was a big effort. I am playing better now.''

Nadal has won five titles this year, including a victory over Federer in the French Open final in June. A month later, the top-ranked Swiss won his fourth straight Wimbledon title by beating Nadal in the final.

Nadal also said he has recovered from foot and ankle injuries - he skipped the Australian Open in January because of an ailing left foot.

``This is my first year after an important injury so you have to be careful,'' Nadal said. ``I feel fine now, but when you have an injury like I had last year it stays in your mind, so you have to be wary.''

Nadal also has to be wary of Federer, who won his 10th title of year on Sunday at the Madrid Masters.

``I think he is playing his best tennis now,'' Nadal said. ``He is the best for sure right now. ... He is playing unbelievable.''

At the Paris Masters, which starts Monday, Nadal may get another chance to face Tomas Berdych, who is the defending champion.

The Czech, ranked 10th, beat Nadal in the quarterfinals at Madrid last week. When he was jeered by the Spanish crowd, he put a finger to his lips to try and silence them. Nadal told Berdych he shouldn't have done it and was ``a bad person.'' Spanish fans then badgered Berdych during his semifinal loss to Fernando Gonzalez.

``It is better we don't speak about that. Better to speak about Paris and the next tournament,'' Nadal said. ``Something happened on court, but let's forget it. I don't want to think about Berdych.''

Looking toward next year, Nadal predicted that young players will make their mark.

``There are so many coming through, like Berdych, (Richard) Gasquet, (Novak) Djokovic and (Andrew) Murray,'' Nadal said. ``They will expect to finish in the top 25 this year, and a lot of them will be in the top 10 next year.''

But he didn't play MM tournaments this year, so there isn't really a tournament he can ditch. And as long as he keeps doing well on clay, he'll always have an incredibly tough season with MC-Barcelona-Rome, a week off and RG.

Don't tear your hair out, Ania.

It's not like he can say anything else to the media. (Yeah well 'I suck on hard court and grass' may be an option but after his incredible run at Wimby that wouldn't sound convincing either perhaps. )
