Tio Toni: "Rafa can lose because Rosol is a good player and he has a good serve"

Uncle Toni believes Nadal, who spent eight months out with a knee injury following the defeat by Rosol, is in better shape this year than he has been for two years for the rematch against the Czech.

The world number one, 28, plays Rosol at 13:00 BST on Centre on Thursday.

"That defeat cannot affect the match," said uncle Toni. "I think Rafa is better now than he was in 2012."

"It's a different Rafa Nadal than two years ago," he said. "A better Rafa Nadal. In 2012, he had many problems when he arrived at Wimbledon."

"Rafa struggled in every practice, he couldn't go down on his knees, which is important on grass, and his mentality was not good enough for that reason."

"But now he has good movement and not much pain. He is the number one in the world and that should give him some confidence. "

"Of course, Rafa can lose because Rosol is a good player and he has a good serve, but I hope Rafa is good enough to beat him."

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________


"For us it's very important to play here, it's a dream for us," said Toni Nadal.

"When Rafael was young my dream was that he could win at least once here. Every year when we come here it's a dream, and we'll try to keep coming."

"If we play bad this year we'll come back next year, so still we have a little chance to make a good tournament when we come here."

"When he's good, his knees and his body, then grass court is a good court for us, and he is good now."

"We'll always come back, the knees are not an issue in that, sometimes he has played with problems in the past, and we could do that again."

"People said Rafael doesn't play well here, but maybe that's because people have a short memory."

"We made the final in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011."

"Five finals and then we have problems, with the knees."

Don't really enjoy Rafa's style of tennis but Murray couldn't be more right about this.

He'll probably beat Rosol in straight sets despite all the hype.

Rafa will come to the net twice throughout the entire match and McEnroe will be sure to say at least 5 times that Rafa is the best volleyer on tour.

And everytime you and fedtarts come posting the same old. Get new material.

Toni doesnt say anything we already dont know. Hes better then 2012 but Rosol has the game to hurt Rafas confidence.
