Rafa Nadal to play Stella Artois Championships next year and 2007

Great news for the tourney, it always got the big names but this year I thought Halle bettered them this year, but this is a step in the right direction both for the tourney and for Rafa who has great commitment and desire to do well on the lovely green lawn

Should add some excitement to the tournament. Hopefully Nadal will learn to change tactics whne playing on the green stuff.

If he reaches Roland Garros final and if he's intelligent ( something difficult when we'are talking about his schedule ) i guess he wouldn't make the same mistake than this year playing in Halle and he would pull out of Queen's

YES! Great news.
And I just became a member of Queens which gives me free access to all centre court matches. I just hope he's not too worn out after Roland Garros.

The field at Stella wasn't as good as Halle this year. They got an incredible Federer v Safin final while we were stuck with Karlovic v Roddick. But Rafa should be a big improvement.

Halle's tournament director wants to get to Hewitt/Roddick next year. I'm sure they will get a stronger players list.

So Rafa is going after Wimbledon and Roger is going after Roland Garros.................2006 should be interesting.
