Default On to the luscious grass courts

Rafa is determined to play in Halle (Germany).

Official tournament website: http://www.gerryweber-open.de/gwo_en

The draw, Rafa expected to play not before Thursday:

Kohli or JJ in the 2nd rd could be trouble but hope he can get in a few matches.

As Rafa said, the organization is perfect, the courts are geat, and the main court is covered.

Why is Rafa still playing Halle? He said he stopped playing Queens IIRC because of the tax regulations problems or something which I think now isn't a problem. He played Wueens both times he won Wimby, plus there is less travelling etc.

He has a contract with Halle for 3 years, so there's that.

I love seeing Nadal on grass. But there's been so little of it the last 3 years . Would give anything to see him retire with one last Wimbledon trophy.

11,12, 13? Or does 13 not count? Hope he comes back to Queens next year (if he is still fit). Was epic seeing him twice in 2010.

Btw Halle's website lists ZDF and Eurosport as TV channels but I don't see Halle on Eurosport's TV schedule. They show and have always shown Queen's.

Rafa to play Dusting Brown in Halle. The match will most likely be on Thursday, but I am still not convinced Rafa will play Halle.

From Rafa's FB:
Ya en pista entrenando tras el viaje.
Already on the court practising after the trip.

LOL Mimi, we are two greedy ladies, no?
Just think, with that AO he would have 15 GS titles already!

Btw the ATP site also says like Eurosport is showing Halle when in fact they aren't.

Let's not turn into Federer fans here people. 14 Slams is just wonderful and way more than I ever could have dreamed (though obviously a 15th at Wimbledon would be just lovely too ).

LOL I'm absolutely fine with Rafa's career, just that this AO final was so tragic, hard to get over it. And I don't want to say that Wawa didn't deserve the title, he was better on that day as simple as that.
14 is a lovely number, for me much prettier that 13. Tomorrow is Friday the 13th btw, and full moon here.

Oh you also have Eurosport. Yes the ES International 1 and 2 that are supposed to show Halle of course show only Queen's as usual.

Rafa vs Dustin Brown should start soon.
