Nadal critic on Madrid:

Looks like he got pretty stupid and cliché questions, but the answers are nice. Those always pissed about Nadal being too nice on interviews will enjoy this.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

MADRID. - The inaugural day of the match of Madrid, a “mini Grand Slam” of cuts futurist that installs to tennis in a new dimension, it was darkened by the hard critics of the Spanish Rafael Nadal. The hard number one dedicated palabas to the conditions of game and the intention to prove a blue track that replaces red the habitual one of the clay.

“The facilities good, are all a little disorderly still, I create I. The ball boat is complicated at the moment. I have trained yesterday and today outside and the track had enough bad boats, and if we added the height to him of Madrid puts itself complicated to play”, the Spanish said.

The attempt of Madrid to create a blue surface that also replaces the habitual orange was criticized by the Majorcan. The organizers had the intention to play all the match in blue, but finally they had to be satisfied to having only one track of training of that color. “She is the perfect thing that is and good that she is I am against totally”, emphasized Nadal.

“All we can rise badly or or”, said with serious gesture Manolo Santana, director of the match, when it was asked to him for the words of number one of the world. The central field of the match takes the name of Santana, the best Spanish tennis player of history until the irruption of Nadal.

Santana recognized that the match impelled by the Rumanian Ion Tiriac failed in its attempt to give to a fort blow mediatic impact with the creation of blue clay fields that replaced the traditional orange. ““Timing” was not the correct one, we hurried. But we want to do it, Madrid always stood out for being novel. I nonfodder in the past, fodder in the future”.

But Nadal yes emphasizes the past. “The earth tour is historical, the Earth is red, nonblue, tennis not only is “show-business”, is more things than to value, history and tradition. By something it will be that there are emblematic scenes in the world of the sport that are conserved”. “In my humble opinion the track would have to be red since it has been always. If we put rare things considering that to the following week is Roland Garros, see I it complicated. But we know that sometimes there are things that pass in front of the tradition and history, we trust that this time is not thus”.

“the match of Madrid enchanted to me as it were before”, Nadal, sponsored by Mapfre, rival of insuring the Mutual Madrilenian, main “sponsor” of the match insisted. Madrid gambled until 2008 in autumn and fast surface. The new match, true “a mini Grand Slam”, is much more great, it is disputed on clay and it reunites to the best rackets of the ATP and the WTA.

Of 2.270 million dollars in prizes that distributed it jumped to 7.2 million. The star of the Magical Box is the central stage with sliding ceiling and capacity for 12,000 spectators. There are other two technically identical ones, with possibility of sheltering 3,500 and 2,500 people. The constructed surface happened of 30,000 meters squared to 83.500.

In spite of the impressive thing of the scene, to Nadal it does not like that the match finishes six days before Roland Garros, the maximum match begins on clay and one of the four of Grand Slam, in which will look for his fifth consecutive title. “I do not doubt that the facilities are of the best ones than it has in the circuit, but that the last previous match to Roland Garros is in height it changes a little the situation. If the last match were Rome before Paris would be more suitable conditions, but there is one week now before, so there is no problem with that”.

Nadal did not remain there. In that it was the first press conference of a player in the flaming Magical Box, a key scene of the candidacy from Madrid to the Olympic Games of 2016, ruined any possibility that Madrid someday aspires to organize a Grand Slam. “The Grand Slam is four, it seems to you that you can put five? Certainly Madrid is a great match, but Rome and Montecar it are great matches also. The tradition indicates that they are four, not five great ones”.

Santana, who recognized conversations with Rome to change the date of Madrid, assured to have commented with Nadal the critics that did to the match, and did not misestimate that the height of Madrid - little more than 500 meters it is a problem. “There is a complex with the height of Madrid. I was player and she never affected to me. Many Spanish players gained the match of Gstaad, that gambles 1,000 meters of height”.
WTF???

Except for this ridiculous translantion i wonder why Rafa is complaining so much. I mean he doesnt even need to play! I think he starting to feel the pressure of being nr 1...

Nadal welcomes criticism of the Madrid tournament
MADRID .- The day of the inaugural tournament in Madrid, a "mini Grand Slam 'cutting futuristic tennis installed in a new dimension, was overshadowed by the harsh criticism of the Spanish Rafael Nadal. The number one hard palabas devoted to the game and intend to try a blue track to replace the usual red clay.

"The facilities, however, are still a little messy, I think. the ball bounces are complicated at the moment. Yesterday and today I practiced and the court had enough bad bounces, and if we add the height of Madrid it makes for complicated play" said the Spanish.

The attempt of Madrid to create a blue surface to replace the usual orange was also criticized by the Mallorcan. The organizers had intended to play the entire tournament in blue, but they eventually had to settle for having only one training court with that color. "Be as perfect as it is and how good I am still totally against it," said Nadal.

"Everybody can get it right or wrong," said Manolo Santana with a serious gesture, director of the tournament, when asked about what the world number one said. The golf tournament Central is named for Santana, the best tennis player in Spanish history until the emergence of Nadal.

Santana acknowledged that the tournament promoted by the Romanian Ion Tiriac failed in his attempt to blow a strong media impact with the creation of blue clay courts to replace the traditional orange. "The 'timing' was not the correct one, we hasten. But we want to do, Madrid always stood out for being innovative. I do not think in the past, I think in the future."

But Nadal highlights the past. "The tour is historic ground, the earth is red, not blue, tennis is not just 'show business', there are more things to appreciate, history and tradition. It is something that is emblematic scenery in the world of sport are preserved." "In my humble opinion the court should be red as it has always been. If we put weird stuff given that the following week is Roland Garros, I see it complicated. But we know that sometimes there are things that happen in front of Tradition and history, I'm confident that this time it's not good."

"I loved the tournament in Madrid as it was before," insisted Nadal, sponsored by Mapfre, rival insurer Mutua Madrileña, the main 'sponsor' of the tournament. Madrid was played up in autumn 2008 and on the surface quickly. The new tournament, a true "mini Grand Slam 'is much larger, is played on clay and brings together the best rackets of the ATP and WTA.

Of 2.270 million dollars in prizes distributed jumped to 7.2 million. The star of the Magic Box is the central stadium with sliding roof and capacity for 12,000 spectators. There are two technically identical, with the possibility of accommodating 3,500 and 2,500 people. The surface area increased from 30,000 to 83,500 square meters.

Despite the impact of the scene, Nadal does not like the tournament finished six days before the start of Roland Garros, the top tournament on clay and one of the four Grand Slam, where he will seek his fifth consecutive title. "I have no doubt that the facilities are the best there is in the circuit, but the last tournament before Roland Garros is a little change in height of the situation. If Rome was the last tournament before Paris would be most suitable conditions, but there is now one week before, so no problem with that."

Nadal was not there. In the first press conference of a new player in the Magic Box, a key stage of the candidature of Madrid at the Olympic Games in 2016, drove overland Madrid any possibility that one day aspire to host a Grand Slam. "The four Grand Slam, you think that you could put five? Sure Madrid is a great tournament, but Rome and Monte Carlo are also big tournaments. Tradition indicates that there are four, not five."

Santana acknowledged that talks with Rome to change the date of Madrid, said not having commented on the criticism that Nadal was the tournament and dismissed the height of Madrid, just over 500 meters, is a problem. "There is a complex with the height of Madrid. I was a player and it never affected me. Many Spanish players have won the tournament in Gstaad, which is played at 1000 meters in height."

Ok you could be right, but he is also complaining about the altitude and stuff. He should still win the tournament easily. If he thinks he cant then he can just skip it for some much needed rest.

This translation is the most sound and is the best attempt at a decent translation.

Translating is a very difficult craft and much of an art. There is no such thing as literal translation, when it does occur the meaning usually loses it's semantic value.

Re: Nadal critic on Madrid:

Dunno what Nadal's complaining about, after all a high bounce only favours him.
