Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

A few days ago, Vilas said in an interview that Nadal was going to wthdraw from Shangai. He definetely can get good information. I didn't believe him but maybe it's true.

I wouldnt trust anything Vilas says about Nadal. We all know how highly he regards Rafa. Just look at his behavior at RG with the whole "clay court record" thing

Oh, no... I so hope to see Rafa in good form!

That doesn't have to do with nadal, it's because someone broke his record. I mean, he would have said the same, if it had been another player.
In a way the fact that vilas got it in only one season is more valuable, but of course Nadal's record will still grow.

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

Found a couple of quotes Vilas made about his record and Rafa-

"First of all, Nadal's performance is spanning over two years, which is not the same."

"Then, I have the feeling he added easy tournaments on his schedule just for that purpose."

"They never gave me any trophy at the time," said Vilas after he handed Nadal a trophy on the centre court of Roland Garros for the occasion.

The Argentine reminded that he still was detaining two other records Nadal "would never beat."

ME-OW...ouch! Maybe I'm a softie at heart, but I was hoping Vilas would have been a little more kind than that.

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

How would Vilas know if Nadal was going to pull out or not?

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

I was sure this would happen....Why is he doing this? Id love to see him in the final but if he doesnt win a single match hes hurting his confidence for next year

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

Why is Vilas of all retired players saying anything about Nadal's status for Shanghai???
Are they secretly pals or something?

I really REALLY hope Rafa doesn't pull out.
It's very exciting to see all top 8 players competing in this thing.

We watched this ceremony on the screens at RG this year... ok the quotes look cold and mean - but the body language and warmth Vilas had for Rafa was amazing! - the press dont print that of course... alot of Vilas' quotes were done in jest - he was very proud of Rafa's achievement and the ceremony was very moving!

Vilas held Rafa so tight! - he looked like a very proud Uncle... you all know how warm the Spanish and South American players are towards eachother... it was a great ceremony.

Re: Nadal not able to train service due to recent injury

Vilas won all those matches on clay but he didn't face Borg during that streak. Nadal established his record against all the major clay opponents except Nalbandian.
