Rafael Nadal of Spain speaks during a press conference ahead of the ATP Qatar Open Tennis tournament at Khalifa Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha on January 2, 2012.
In this Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012 photo released by Qatar Tennis Federation, or QTF, Rafael Nadal presents in a showcase ahead of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open and the 2012 ATP World Tour season at an amphitheater in the cultural village of Katara in Doha, Qatar. Over 4,000 Roman candles were lit to illuminate the amphitheater to celebrate the 20th anniversary of men's professional tennis in Doha.
"Who ain't a slave? Tell me that. Well, then, however the old sea-captains may order me about—however they may thump and punch me about, I have the satisfaction of knowing that it is all right; that everybody else is one way or other served in much the same way— either in a physical or metaphysical point of view, that is; and so the universal thump is passed round, and all hands should rub each other's shoulder-blades, and be content." - Herman Melville, Moby Dick
Looking good. I see some improvements mostly to his backhand. Djoko will have some troubles this year!
