Rafa's not injured nor tired and he's playing like crap, but I think it's because he's bored.

Put me down for the WIN, Metis.

ONE GAME AT A TIME FOR MODEST NADAL
Despite being world No1, clay genius and red-hot favourite for the title here in Rome, Rafael Nadal refused to look beyond his first opponent in the tournament, either Sam Querrey or Andreas Seppi.

When asked about the problem of having another surging Spaniard, Fernando Verdasco, in his quarter of the draw, Nadal refused to be drawn into any predictions. �I don't know if we are going to be in the quarter-finals. Seppi - I'm looking there. I don't know if Verdasco looks to the quarterfinals but, me, I look at the first round.�

�The most dangerous competitor every day is the opponent,� he continued. �That's the thing, and I know how tough it is to win every match. When I go on court, I have a lot of respect for every player. Before the match I always think I can lose and I can win. I have to accept both things, so I go on court and try my best every day and respect the opponent. Federer or Djokovic or Murray, sure, they are the No2, 3, and 4, but every player can play really good on every surface. The clay court players can play very well on the rest of the surfaces and the hard court players can play very well on clay because the surface is different, but not like before. The hard is not really, really fast and the clay is not really slow.�

When asked how �only� three Rome titles compares with Monte Carlo and Barcelona, the two most recent tournaments in the calendar which he has now won five times, Nadal again showed his characteristic press-room modesty. �I'm very happy to have three titles here. Not disappointed to not have the title last year. The normal thing is not always to win, the normal thing is to lose. It is unusual to win five Monte Carlos in a row and five Barcelonas in a row. For me, that's more than a dream, that's totally unbelievable - I never expect something like this. It�s more usual to lose in the first round in Rome than win three Romes in a row.�

Despite having opened up a clear lead at the top of the rankings, the Majorcan is by no means resting on his laurels,. �Sure, when I came to be No. 1 last year it was important � it gave me satisfaction because I worked very hard all my life to be there,� said Nadal. �But in the end, I have the same goals right now as when I was No2. I�ve said that to myself a hundred times this year. My goal is to continue improving my tennis and continue having good results, and try to improve. Always.� He may be modest, but the steely determination is there and few would bet against him losing on clay between now and mid-June�

rafito's presser

Quote:
Nadal

Q. How do you feel physically at the moment with the weeks you've had?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, well, no problem. Perfect.

Q. Not tired?
RAFAEL NADAL: No. I didn't have very long matches on the final of Monte Carlo. But, yeah, Barcelona I had, yeah, first two rounds 6 2, 6 2, 6 2, 6 0; later I have 6 2, 6 3. It's tougher, and the final was tough, no, but not very tough. Not really long match, so that's a good thing for to try play well the three weeks in a row.

Q. Comparing the current situation of pro men's tennis to some years ago, there are less clay court specialists than maybe three or five years ago. Who do you think at the moment is the most dangerous competitor for you on clay?
RAFAEL NADAL: The more dangerous competitor is every day the opponent. You know, that's the thing, and I know now tough is win every match.
When I go on court, I have a lot of respect for every player, no? So when I go on court, before the match I always think I can lose and I can win. I have to accept both things, so I go on court and try my best every day and respect the opponent.
If you are thinking I gonna say, I don't know, Federer or Djokovic or Murray, everybody is very good, sure. They are the No. 2, 3, and 4, but every player can play really good on every surface.
I think right now, because every year for last years we have less tournaments on clay. The best players of the world well, we gonna change the thing, no? Because in that moment, most of the tournaments of the world are hard, indoor, or...
Yeah, everybody plays good in every surface, no? The clay court players can play very well in the rest of the surfaces, and the hard court players can play very well on clay because the surface is different, but not like before. It's not really, really fast the hard, and the and the clay is not really slow.

Q. Does Rome offer anything different in conditions to, say, Monaco or Barcelona? Is it a little different to play here?
RAFAEL NADAL: I don't know, no? Well, I didn't practice.

Q. From your past experience.
RAFAEL NADAL: No, I don't know.

Q. Same?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yes, I always love this tournament, no? I like it a lot. I won three years, so I had very nice memories of that tournament, well, especially on the last center court. Now there is not.
But, yeah, sure, for us it's much better if the sunshine come, no?

Q. Now you have won for the fifth time Monte Carlo, and after Barcelona. How much are you disappointed to have not won here on last year? Not so special?
RAFAEL NADAL: No, no. I'm very happy to have three titles here. Not disappointed to don't have the title last year, no? The normal thing always is don't win, so the normal thing is lose.
The unusual is win five Monte Carlos in a row and five Barcelonas in a row. For me, that's more than a dream. That's totally unbelievable for me, and I never expect something like this.
The normal thing is well, yeah, is more usual lose in first round in Rome than win three Romes in a row.

Q. To be No 1, the best in tennis, does it give you more feeling of comfortable or more pressure?
RAFAEL NADAL: Not one and not the other, no? Doesn't change a lot, no, be No. 1. It's only a number. Not a big difference between No. 1 and the rest, or be No. 2 for the last few years for me.
So, yes, sure, when I came to No. 1 last year it was important you know, I don't know important victory, but it's important satisfaction for me, because I worked very hard all my life to be there.
But in the end, I have the same goals right now than when I was No. 2. I say that hundred times this year. But my goal is continuing improve my tennis and continuing having a good results, and try to improve always.

Q. Sorry this is not a clay court question, but did you see the image of the roof on the centre court at Wimbledon? And what do you think of that as a change for tennis?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, I saw the picture. Looks nice, no? Hopefully we don't have to use, but yeah, looks nice. It's a good option.

Q. How do you feel about having to meet Verdasco too soon in the match? You have to encounter him too early because he's in your part of the draw.
RAFAEL NADAL: The normal thing is I don't know if we going to be in quarterfinals, no? You can see there, I don't know, Seppi. I'm looking there. I don't know if Verdasco looks to the quarterfinals. But, me, I look the first round, no?

Rafa Review, Rome Preview
Posted 04/27/2009 @ 2 :05 PM
by Steve Tignor

It’s a spring Sunday ritual. Take a walk, lie in the park, examine New York City as it turns green all around you, and then go back home and watch Rafael Nadal pummel some poor glum soul into the red European dust. After yesterday’s version of this scenario played out as anticipated, I began to wonder whether it was finally time to add a third item to the brief list of life’s absolutes: Can we now say, “Death, taxes, and Nadal on clay”?

Last week I stated that there isn’t much new to say about how Nadal wins, on clay or any other surface. At 22, he’s already reached the stage where he’s hoisting trophies for the fifth straight time, as he did on Sunday with the supersized cup that he can barely lift over his head each year in Barcelona. So, seemingly with nothing left to observe about the guy, I put down the notebook for Nadal’s final yesterday against David Ferrer and sat back to watch as a spectator.

But that’s the thing about Nadal. Within his seemingly regimented—“one-dimensional”—game, he rarely fails to come up with something unexpected, something you haven’t quite seen even after watching him hundreds of times. Against Ferrer it was Nadal’s down-the-line forehand that looked new to me. He routinely cut off the angle on his opponent’s crosscourt backhand near the service line and, without stopping to set up in any conventional sense, drilled his forehand into the corner for an easy winner. I associate this “running through the ball” style of transition attack with Roger Federer, not with Nadal, but the Spaniard had the confidence yesterday to throw all grind-it-out caution to the wind.

That said, there’s one other notable aspect about Nadal that continues to stick out this clay season: Even while he’s doing something unprecedented, and even while he can appear for long periods to be utterly invincible, he remains human on the court. That is, he remains subject to anxieties, dry spells, inexplicable shanks, and even the occasional tactical blunder. After winning the first set over Ferrer pretty much at will, Nadal’s level dropped in the second, and more than a few shots flew wildly off his frame. John McEnroe once said of Federer at his peak that he screwed up just enough to let you know he was human, before rising to the occasion and becoming infallible again. This combination made Federer even more impressive than if he’d been perfect all the way through. If anything, I’ve always felt this was even truer of Nadal: He lets you know that winning is work, and that one missed shot here or there—Ferrer nearly reached set point on Nadal’s serve in the second—is all it would take for him to end up on the losing side of any given day. As with Federer once upon a time, this only makes the fact that Nadal doesn’t lose those key points that much more impressive.

I went to bed Sunday night having just listened to Tennis Channel commentators Jason Goodall and Robbie Koenig call the Barcelona final. This morning I woke up, turned on the TV, and heard them announcing first-round matches at the Masters event in Rome—the tour is in full swing. As Nadal himself said after the final in Indian Wells, while contemplating a late flight that same night to Miami, “The good thing of tennis is when lose you have another chance next week. The bad thing is when you win, next Tuesday you are [playing] another time.”

It’s not that bad, Rafa: This week you shouldn’t have to play until Wednesday. But as I write this, the first round in rainy Rome is going on (speaking of spring rituals, James Blake is about to lose to a no name). The other members of the Big 4, Federer, Murray, and Djokovic, will all come to the Foro Italico with more rest than Nadal. Can any of them take him off my short list of life’s sure things?

First Quarter

The question for Nadal, and for this tournament, is how he feels in regard to his French Open preparation. Does he need some rest, or can he keep going at full speed all the way through Sunday? This question is tied up with whether he plans to enter Madrid in two weeks—apparently he’s wary of playing at altitude there so soon before Paris. Last year Nadal was in a similar situation when he came to Rome, and he lost early to Juan Carlos Ferrero. While he cited blisters afterward, he didn’t seem too broken up about getting a few days off before playing in Hamburg the next week and making the final push to Paris.

This year Nadal didn’t have to work overly hard in Barcelona. He won his semi and final in straight sets and didn’t have to play a quarterfinal at all after David Nalbandian pulled out. So I would expect Nadal, despite some trepidation, to go after the title in Rome the way he usually does, and to be fresh enough physically to do it.

But even with a couple days off, his first round could be tricky. Nadal will play the winner of Andreas Seppi, who has beaten him on hard courts, and Sam Querrey, who has challenged him on clay. The other half of his section is relatively stacked—Verdasco, Tsonga, Gasquet, Almagro, Gulbis, and Andreev are all there, but Nadal will only have to face one of them, in the quarters.

First-round matches to watch: Almagro-Gulbis, Tsonga-Gasquet. Semifinalist: Nadal

Second Quarter

After reaching his first clay-court semifinal in Monte Carlo, Andy Murray continues his learn-the-dirt campaign of 2009. Think of it as a tennis version of Hillary Clinton’s crafty “listening tour” of New York state in 2000. Murray is taking the pressure off himself by saying that this spring he's essentially conducting research for the future.

He’ll have to be a quick study, because his first opponent might be Argentine dirtballer Juan Monaco. The two played a three-setter on hard courts on Miami last month before Murray prevailed. If they play again in Rome, we’ll get an idea of how the Scot matches up against a guy who makes his living on this stuff.

If he succeeds there, Murray might have to play either Nikolay Davydenko or Fernando Gonzalez in the quarters. He beat Kolya, a more natural clay-courter who seems revived after coming back from an injury, in a tough two-setter in Monte Carlo. If they play again, it should be equally tight. Semifinalist: Davydenko

Third Quarter

Which Novak Djokovic will we see in Roma? He’s the defending champion, and he’s coming off a Monte Carlo run that brought out his best tennis of the year so far—more than at any time in 2009, he fought well when he had to and didn't let his emotions get the best of him.

But if we’ve learned anything about the Serb over the last year, it’s that he’s more prone to unpredictability and mental inconsistency than we once thought. Still, I like his draw. Of the guys in his immediate vicinity, only Safin and Robredo seem at all capable of beating him, and those two play each other in the first round. On the other side we might get a showdown between Del Potro and Wawrinka, a match I’d give to Stan based on current form. Semifinalist: Djokovic

Fourth Quarter

Do you have a clue as to how Roger Federer might play in Rome? If so, you’re a step ahead of me. No matter what he says, his personal life must be a bit of a distraction at the moment, and so far it’s one that hasn’t relaxed him on the court.

Federer’s draw won’t help take the edge off, either. Last year he lost to Radek Stepanek in Rome, and he might find himself across from the Agitator again this time—they’re slotted to play in the third round. That is, if Federer gets past his potential opening match against Ivo Karlovic, never a fun thing to do, no matter what the surface.

On the other side, Simon, Ferrer, Berdych, and the improving Italian Fognini will fight it out to make the quarters. I got burned picking Ferrer to reach the final in Monte Carlo, but I liked the way he dictated much of the play in the second set against Nadal in Barcelona. Semifinalist: Ferrer

Semifinals: Nadal d. Davydenko; Djokovic d. Ferrer

Final: Nadal d. Djokovic
