Ferrero on Valencia ATP 500: "Bringing Nadal is complicated." "He also has interests"

Seems like today was a day for other Spanish players to have subtle digs at their compatriot. Talking about the Valencia Open today JCF said they try and get Rafa every year - were close this year too but he went for Basel - you'd think the tournament being in Spain would help but Nadal has other interests too...

Quote:
The Valencia Open 500 tennis came close to having Rafa Nadal in last year's edition, but the Spaniard's injury prevented him. "We talked and it was almost done," said Juan Carlos Ferrero yesterday, tournament director of the Agora. For the next edition, from 19 to 27 October, again tried to have the tennis Manacor. "We had to find economic opportunities to come. We were in it and eventually beat us and I can not be, "he said, referring to Nadal played in Basel, hometown of Roger Federer in the same tournament dates Valencia. Nevertheless "try to come every year."

Ferrero, however, lamented yesterday that the player Manacor not put more facilities to participate in an event that is organized in their country. "He is always near. What happens is that he also has interests ... at other levels. Bringing Rafa Nadal is complicated. Being here in Spain should help a little bit, "says the Ontinyent, which also has been No. 1 in the ATP ranking.

Since his retirement last year just in the Agora, Juan Carlos Ferrero is responsible for the management of the tournament in Valencia, which owns the rights along with David Ferrer. Yesterday presented the Third Valencia Open 500 Promises and a new activity of Street Tennis. During this event, Ferrero referred to the recent removal of the player in the first round of Javea in 's-Hertogenbosch and the final defeat of the land of Paris, Nadal: "Maybe the Roland Garros hangover has taken its toll . He already has experience in winning a tournament on grass. The important thing is to get well physically Wimbledon. " According added, Ferrer has' chances to win in every tournament. He had reached a Grand Slam semi-finals on several occasions and this time reached the final, you have to try to win, but Rafa played very well. Reaching the final is going to give confidence and hope to be the catalyst to reach others. "

Maybe he feels he should leave one Spanish title open to the JCFs, Ferrers, Almagros of this world and don't forget Pico's done well there too. Granollers even managed to win it. Normally he doesn't play that week - an extra indoor HC event makes no sense, so not an issue to skip it. But harder this year as he's playing Basel in direct competition with Valencia... May have some questions to answer...

The haters call Nadal greedy for not playing here, but they'll decry him as a vulture should he ever end up playing Valencia.

I wasn't surprised then, but now, "surprised" would be an understatement

Money, money, money....

Only other reason I can think of is that Basel has the same surface and ball as WTF. Better preparation than Valencia, if he is indeed interested in getting more indoor practice this year.

Or maybe it's just because he wants the chance to play Fed in front of his home crowd before it's too late. The Swiss public deserve that chance. And with it being indoors, it's advantage Fed too.

He plays the relatively small tournament that he's closest to (Barcelona), plays Madrid even though the conditions haven't favored him in the past and he also routinely plays Davis Cup. He does plenty for the Spanish events. Valencia should be happy with their native son playing there.

And Nadal probably shouldn't be playing any Euro indoor 500s anyway.

No-one cares.

Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
verb
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
noun
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)
