Talking Maradona's son wanted to play with Nadal!

Article in Spanish
From http://www.elperiodicodearagon.com/n...sp?pkid=204874

El hijo de Maradona quiso pelotear con Nadal en Italia


La nueva jornada de preparación para la eliminatoria por la permanencia en el Grupo Mundial de la Copa Davis registró ayer una anécdota en Torre del Greco, la localidad cercana a Nápoles que la Federación Italiana de Tenis ha elegido para el encuentro de supervivencia entre el equipo transalpino, que cuenta con la notable baja de Filippo Volandri (que pidió más dinero a la federación italiana para jugar), y el español, que en cambio contará con todos los pesos pesados, incluido el actual número dos del mundo, Rafael Nadal.

Nadal recibió ayer, en su segundo día de entrenamiento en la pista central habilitada en el campo de fútbol del Sporting Club Oplonti, la visita por sorpresa del hijo que Diego Armando Maradona tuvo con la italiana Cristina Sinagra durante su estancia en Nápoles. Maradona júnior, actual jugador del equipo napolitano, compareció en la pista con unos presentes para el tenista mallorquín y con la pretensión de pelotear un rato con él. La petición no pudo ser atendida porque Nadal estaba enfrascado ya en la preparación de los partidos de una eliminatoria en la que su papel debe ser primordial. El tenista mallorquín podría jugar tres partidos en tres días.

POR LA PERMAMENCIA El sorteo se celebra hoy al mediodía y, salvo sorpresas, Nadal y Juan Carlos Ferrero (número 15 del mundo) jugarán los dos primeros individuales de mañana ante Andreas Seppi (70º del mundo) y Potito Starace (88º). El doble del sábado correrá a cargo probablemente de las parejas Nadal-Feliciano López y Daniele Bracciali-Giorgio Galimberti. El equipo español, que nunca ha ganado a Italia en su país, necesita la victoria para mantenerse en el Grupo Mundial e intentar el año que viene el asalto al tercer título de su historia (ya ganó la Davis en los años 2000 y 2004) si el sorteo es favorable.
-----------------------------------------------

Carlos, Tommy, Rafa, Feli, Nicolás, Marcel
Rainer, Radek, Benji Becker, Jarkko Nieminen, Melzer, Nalbandián, Tursunov, Starace, Djokovic, Youzhny

Re: Maradona's son wanted to play with Nadal!

I found a translation of an article about the meeting on another website (vamosrafa.com):

Quote:
maradona jr meets nadal
"It was a dream I wanted to realize". I had read from the newspapers that Rafael Nadal was keen on football and above all a big fan of my father's. The Davis Cup was a big opportunity to approach him. "I have to thank the organizers of the meeting, at the top Carmine Palumbo, which have allowed me to shake his hand". This afternoon Diego Maradona jr's eyes were sparkling with joy. The meeting between Nadal and Diego has been one of the most particular moments of the day. A handshake, several photographs and the exchange of gifts: "I gave him a shirt of mine, and showed him my rackets". I like tennis very much: I am partner of a circle in Naples where I got good results. He signed my shirt, he has been very kind and a very simple guy, I was so nervous that I wasn't able to speak ".

Diego got a promise from Nadal: " He said he will play with me in one of these days ". "Words cannot explain my joy". Also Rafael Nadal is satisfied: " It's true, I have been a very big Maradona fan, he was the sportsman I admired teh most when I was little ". " And it's nice to know that Diego jr. is my same age, 19 years old".
And

Maradona Jr tries to play tennis with Rafa Nadal, whom he idolizes

Italy.- Diego Maradona Jr, son of the former world football star, turned up out of the blue today at the Spanish Davis Cup team's practice session in an attempt to hit a few balls with his idol, Rafael Nadal.

"Can we play together?" Maradona Jr asked the world number 2 after unexpectedly introducing himself to him during the Spanish team's training session in Torre del Greco, Italy, where on Friday they take on Italy.

Nadal had to tell him that he was about to start a training session, but it was not all that easy for the tennis star to say no because he had a really big fan in front of him.

Maradona Jr had already presented him with a football shirt and boots of his that he had autographed for him. In his sports bag he also had a racquet identical to the one Nadal uses and a set of the latest Nike models of the distinctive tennis gear the Spanish star usually wears.

The son that Maradona conceived out of wedlock with Cristiana Sinagra at the end of the 80's, told Nadal that he is not very interested in football these days - it bores him - and that tennis is now his great passion.
Great to see that Maradona jr. looks so much like his dad.
