Rafael continues to successful comeback, Winning Indian Wells title with a victory over J.Martin Del potro
Congratulations to Rafa fans :)
Yes, I agree! Rafa is absolutely king of the caly!
Rafael Nadal believes that Grigor Dimitrov will one day rise into the Top 10 of the Emirates ATP Rankings.
Speaking after he won their Monte Carlo Rolex Masters quarter-final on Friday, Nadal said, “I always had that feeling. [It] always depends on how he stays mentally, how he's able to keep working hard and improving. But, sure, he's a great player and he has all the shots. He has everything to be a really, really good player. So [it] depends on him.
“[At 21] he has time. He has time to have a great career… It's not like golf, [when] you have 20 or 25-year career. Here our sport is more aggressive for the body, so we aren’t that lucky. He still has time and he is doing very well. I saw him play very well in Indian Wells and Miami. He did well here.”
Nadal recorded his 45th straight win at the Monte Carlo with a 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 win over Dimitrov. Nadal lost a set for just the seventh time in nine years at the Monte-Carlo Country Club.
At 4-4 in the deciding set, the eight-time reigning champion admitted, “I was nervous. I accepted that my opponent was playing well and I tried to find a solution to win. Finally, I was lucky. I found a solution at the right time.”
Maria Sharapova was never against Nadal as a tennis player. She has a lot of respect for him as a tennis player.
I think it is not the role of the journalists to ask to Maria this kind of question: would you like to go out with Nadal if he invites you ?
It is an idiot question from a journalist because Nadal himself should have asked Maria this kind of question. If Nadal didn't ask her this question that means he was not interested by Maria Sharapova. So why do people want Maria Sharapova to be interested by Nadal ?
I think that Maria Sharapova's answer is clear. Nadal is not her type.
