oh cool!

btw, was it my imagination or did i read somewhere that rafa and carlos were going to be playing an exhibition match in buenos aires at the beginning of december? i recall reading something like that a while ago...but if it is true, i don't think rafa would be playing so soon after his injury treatment

Emily, I doubt Rafa will travel to BsAs at the beginning of December. He said he hopes to start practicing at the beginning of December. :shrug:

I also read something on that exhibition tournament in Argentina a couple of months ago , but since then i haven't heard anything about it , and i don't know if this tournament exists and if Carlos will go, but it's sure that obviously Rafa won't go there . He will resume his practises on 5th December or so .

Rafa's presence in the Spanish Masters ( in Valladolid ) is up in the air at the moment.

btw i just read that that exhibition Rafa and Carlos were meant to be doing was going to be 4-6 December...and I see that the exhibition in honour Guillermo Vilas is on those dates, so maybe they changed it and did that instead since Rafa couldn't go :shrug:

Nadal will play this match . I guess the difference between the match against Robredo and this one is that against Robredo is at the best of 3 sets while against Moy just one set , and besides the match on 22th is an exhibition tournament meanwhile the match on 23th is charitable and he wants to collaborate with this altruistic event ( obviously he will play not forcing )

It seems that the court is synthetic and similar to Greenset , so it's better to call it as hard court instead of carpet , plus the ball bounce will be surely high .

When the organizers told it was gonna be on carpet some month ago , they hadn't " hired " the court yet , and they didn't know which concrete court they were gonna use. ;)

yes but only 1 set...and it's also for charity, which Rafa really wanted to be part of

Moy def Nadal 9-6 ( it has been a match at the best of one " special " set, where the player had to reach 9 games to win the match )

It has been a low quality match where Nadal has shown he's off form ( in fact from the fith game he seemed to have problems to recover after long points ).
Nadal protested even the bad calls which were against Moya's interests , so the match hasn't been very seriously.


Before the match Nadal has told that he's practising seriously since only a few days ago and if the match had been at the best of 3 sets he would haven't played , so he was just ready to play this " short " match at the moment and the match would be a test for him . His foot is much better than in previous weeks, the foot is improving every day , so he's optimistic because is at the final stage of his recovery .

I like tennis matches , and Nadal-Moy match in some moments of the match seemed to be a match-just for fun when for example Nadal prostested Moya's bad calls, or when for example although the ball was out they continued to play some more rallies . Luckily the chair umpire was the " unique " person who was in a tennis match and he kept his criterion in spite of what Nadal or Moy told
