    Not a very encouraging answer. Shame his knees are still bothering him.

    The more interviews he does the more convinced I am that he is going to skip AO next year. He hasn't mentioned AO for a while now, this feels similar to how it did before the US Open.

    But you know the translation isn't very accurate when the word "tranquility" is there. Very hard to measure the level of positive or negative in any words that are a result of translation.

    I'm beginning to think he should skip it this time.

    That short video is though just a part of the interview, and it has a few parts mixed up. From the part where he talks about IW/Miami, is an answer to another question. And then the part about self-improvement is from another answer as well.

    Uhm, why?, what is wrong with the word "tranquility" there?. The word he used in Spanish was "tranquilidad".

    Have you read his interview with Neil Harman? He pretty much just threw the final shovel full of dirt on the coffin with the stuff he said in there. Seriously, he sounds resigned to failure before he even comes back. What a bummer these last few interviews have been. :(

    It sucks more than ever before. If he still feels pain after 6 months of recovery, there is nothing to hope. One hard court tournament and his knees will get killed. Given the fact that he has to play a lot to find his rythm, I don't see what he could do.

    I also think he's (almost) finished this time. I know by experience how painful it is to keep supporting a player who is passing away, and I think we have entered that phase. I expect very sad times. And I honestly don't see any player who could appeal to me, neither in the current top players nor in the young promising guys.

    LOL. Are you trying to compete with Clarky?
    He just doesn't expect to have good results in the first tournaments he plays. That's all. No need to dramatize.

    It's more than him thinking he's not going to do well in the first tournaments he plays. He sounds low, and almost depressed. He also talks about his career in the past tense far too much for my liking. Another thing is his knee is still bothering him after all this time off. That is a terrible sign of things to come, and I agree that with reversef that we are hearing the death rattle of Nadal's career. I'm terribly bummed out about this, and I hope there is a young, exciting player coming up in the ranks that we don't know about yet that I can root for in the future.

    I agree with you, I'm really bummed out too.

    I was feeling pretty positive about his return until these recent interviews. From his comments I feel like he is preparing us for many withdrawals after Abu Dhabi. I personally don't think he should even play if his knees are still bothering him.

    No, I haven't. Is it a new interview?, do you have a link?.

    He never sounds too optimistic about his chances, much less is he going to after being out so long and with his knee still not completely right. I think he thinks more of his chances than he lets on.

    Yeah, people are over-dramatizing here. I do think however that a two week 5 set tournament on hc is not what he needs right now. But how about waiting and seeing how he does since about March before we declare his career over?. He's been worse in the past. He basically limped out of four slams in a row in 2009/2010.

    You're not going to like the rest of the interview then :), there's a lot of reminiscing about his early career.

    Don't be so bummed out just yet Clarcky. Things might turn out just fine.

    Have you ever seen him live?.

    this is sounding like MC 2013 is going to be the real crunch time. So often the place where Nadal finds his feet, but even fit, he does have to lose there sometime. I'm feeling undecided about whether he can come back and win MC again and have a good clay season, or whether the combination of a loss being due PLUS being out so long, is lining up a loss there, which would be a shock to the system. For once Nadal would not have that Mc pick me up.

    Not to sound like a prophet of doom, but clarky is way more downbeat about his chances than me. Just saying I think again it will all boill down to MC.

    Nadal numbed his knee completely to play Roland Garros. So if he ever has pain he can always numb it. Djokovic can't handle a one-legged Nadal.

    Nadal would have to be a fool to talk himself up. This is the perfect opportunity to become the underdog for EVERY match. Usually he can only convince people he's the underdog for a meeting with Federer (see AO 2012 when he said he would not be ready to compete because he hadn't adjusted to his new racquet weight). This is Nadal's dream scenario, so don't think for a second that he would speak positively, even if he was secretly 100%.

    Rafa is 100%, also now that he is armed with Aeropro 2013, he is dangerous.

    It won't matter at Roland Garros. Nadal wants Roland Garros so badly he'd play at 30% fitness and still expect to win. Any other event, I think Nadal will withdraw from when he's not 100% from now on. Roland Garros is the only exception.

    I read it on a certain website that shall remain nameless. You can read it there.

    Doesn't sound like it. you know things are bad when he is dragging even me down with his comments.

    I don't think he has ever had a worse injury than this. This injury has been dragging on for about 9 months now, with 6 of those months without any tennis at all. He has never been sidelined this long with an injury in his entire career.

    Too late for that. Nadal has managed to bum me out, and that is quite a feat. Lol.

    Not yet. Have you?

    I was translating a little of the interview. Only got until like the 4 minute, lol:

    Q: Well Rafa, first, thank s a lot for receiving us again in our tennis programme, it’s been like a year and a half already since we saw each other at Wimbedon, and the truth, (I was) looking forward to seeing you again.

    Rafa: No, thank you for coming, come on (que va). A pleasure.

    Note: not sure how to translate that Spanish expression. It just refers to something that wasn’t necessary to say, that it’s understood, in response to something outrageous or exaggerated. For example, when asked if he’d thought of retiring, he’s said “No, que va”. Here it refers clearly to the gushing from the interviewer, hehe).

    Q: No, well… Hey, I want, eh, it’s true we’ve known each other a long time. And I’ve always had the curiosity and I’ve never off camera like I’m going to do today (?), that is asking you about the story that you… eh, I’ve seen you play football, I’ve seen you play golf, all with the right hand. The thing this that you play left-handed, tell me about it because it’s a legend that I find hard to… I want to know it from you.

    Rafa: Well, it’s simple, no?... well, it’s simple and at the same time it’s complicated. Maybe it’s hard to understand. I’m right-handed for practically everything. For writing, for eating, eh… sensibility at the moment of playing basketball, of throwing the wristband, anything, you throw something to me and I’m going to pick it up with my right hand. But, or playing football, in this case for shooting (the ball), I shoot better with my left foot, or less bad (smiles), with my left foot, than with the right one,
    and for playing tennis the same. It came like this naturally for me. Playing tennis came naturally like this to me, to play with my left hand. Because, I started playing everything two-handed, as you know, (inaudible) I started very little. But there’s people who play everything two-handed, they play like this (mimics it). I used to play to backhands, I would switch my hands, you know?. I didn’t hit… and one day…

    Q: I don’t advise to do that (mimicking Rafa’s switching hands) (laughs). There isn’t much time to do it.

    Rafa: Yeah… I used to do it. I used to do well (chuckles). But, a day came when already, well, my uncle told me that… nothing. That we had to change, that there wasn’t any very good player who’d play everything two-handed, and that I wasn’t going to be the first one, so… (inaudible).

    Q: So it really wasn’t a decision, to say “I play with my right hand and I’m going to try to play with my left one, I play well, and make the decision”.

    Rafa: No, we play one handed (forehand), we have to change, we have to hit it one-handed, the drive, it came out… for me, naturally, is just that I picked it up with my left hand, naturally.

    Q: Thanks. Its just that it was hard for me, personally, it was hard to accept, or to believe, that someone who played right-handed, would switch to left-handed, maybe thinking that to overcome Federer, he had to be left-handed.

    Rafa: No, come on (que va, que va). You imagine, at that age, no no. I switched when I was 10 years old, I think?, and no, I switched because, eh… because my uncle told me I had to switch, and it came naturally for me to pick it up with my left hand. And I’d play two back-hands, with which… mmm. And it’s not something which we consi… I don’t remember ever having considered with which hand we were going to play, we just played left-handed and that was it.

    Q: Golf you play with…

    Rafa: (Inaudible).

    Q: You play right-handed.

    Rafa: I’m right-handed, yeah.

    Q: And during this stop…

    Rafa: Hmm…

    Q: I know you’ve improved a little, in fact, you’ve…

    Rafa: My swing is equally bad (laughs). My swing is equally bad, but well (laughs).

    Q: The handicap is better. So, it benefits me because you’re going to have to give me points.

    Rafa: Yes, exactly (laughs).

    Q: (3:06) Do you consider, in the future, getting into the tour?.

    Rafa: Of golf?, que va. I think it’s impossible. First of all, I don’t have the swing to get into anything, and second, I think it’ would of an enormous arrogance to think that starting to play at… what do I know, 30 years old?, when I stop playing tennis, or 31, or 29, I don’t know when that’s going to be, but that I would be able to get into the professional golf tour. I think people get into, or are professionals because they’re devoted to it since they’re little, no?, because, now “I want to play golf for a living” is as if you tell me “I want to be a tennis pro”, and I start to play when I’m 15 years old, I’ll tell you (inaudible) it’d be very hard, so (chuckles).

    Q: No, but you’re 3.9 already, no?, your handicap…

    Rafa: Yes, I have a handicap of 3.8 I think, 3.9... but, but being a professional isn't being handicap 1 nor handicap 0, it's to be in the circuit, is (chuckles) is…

    Q: (Someone) tried it…

    Rafa: I think not, I think it’s not possible to make it. Another thing is if you say, well, my life is golf, I devote myself all day long, and I can get to play a pro tournament, and I can get to, I don’t know, not to make a fool of myself, not to be a disaster. Yes, I think that can happen, it can be. I don’t know if I’d be prepared (to do that), but I think that is feasible. Now, being a regular player on the circuit, well, I think not.

    Q: What have you done all this time?, apart from, logically, devoting yourself 100% to recuperate the knee.

    Rafa: Ive been, I’ve done several things, I’ve been with my friends, I’ve been with my family. I’ve kept on working in what is my day to day of the recovery, as you’ve said, several hours, and… (shrugs)

    No, I don't try to compete with anyone, but hearing that his knees are still not perfect after 6 months of recovery is scary. I know that Rafa is always cautious and not the kind of guy to say "I feel perfect", but he's a realist, not a pessimist. He often said he would come back when he would feel at 100%, but he didn't think that it would take so much time. My feeling is that from now on, he will be injured more often than not, and in those conditions, it's difficult to play well when you have the opportunity to play.
    I don't try to be a proselyte. I'm happy to see that many fans remain optimistic, and I hope they are right. I hope I will have the opportunity to admit that I was wrong, but there is not much to make me feel very optimistic.

    I can't wait for Nadal's return in Abu Dhabi. He looks so much more comfortable on a hard-court these days against the likes of Berdych and Del Potro (who have made Federer their little Barbie doll), and it's a true testament to Nadal's genius that he just doesn't get troubled by their games anymore. I think this AustralianOpen might be my favourite tournament of the year (just before RolandGarros2013). :p

    Nadal already saying he can play to 30-31 years old. That PROVES he is confident that he can win Roland Garros in 2013-2016. Looks like Federer :mad: will have to find some way to stop Nadal from winning 3 other slams (and there 13 others to choose from in that time period). :p

    Yeah. I wonder what do those companies even do for them. Are they the ones who negotiate their sponsors deals?.

    Rafa plays this Friday, doesn't he?. Anyone knows if there's a set time already?.

    OK, I guess I know which website you're referring to. (Saw the pic on The Times website though, and that was a weird and bad pic of him...).

    I meant in general. Which makes me think it might be the case now as well.

    Though it's also true he doesn't really say the extent of his injured until maybe later on. He was saying he was fine when he came back in 2009 and then it turned out it wasn't really the case. I don't think we knew at the time in 2005/2006 the seriousness of his foot problem. We didn't hear about the tear this year until they had decided he wouldn't have surgery...

    Well, in terms of endangering his career the one from 2005 was probably worse. And while he wasn't so long out before, his tendinitis problem was bad for more than a whole year (and through four slams) in 2009/2010.

    But he plays in the US all the time! :)
    No, I haven't. If he comes here, there's no way I'd miss it. If he doesn't, I don't know if I could manage to go see him somewhere before he retires, tbh.

    YES! :rolleyes:

    IMG negotiates everything for him and gets him all of this sponsorship deals. These athletes are dumb jocks for the most part, they don't know about business.

    I'm sure everyone has someone negotiate those deals for them, not just athletes. Does't mean they're dumb. Dumb would be to negotiate on your own.

    Yes of course, celebrities for example have agents who do the negotiating for them but IMG specializes in sports representation. Yes, most pro athletes are fairly dumb, at least in the world of business. None of them are that educated. They need these agencies to help them promote their brand globally and promote tennis as a whole globally.

    Oh Clarky I have read all the stories aboult Rafa and the ladies. Yuck! He is enjoying the party time alright getting laid with a million girls a week of course. That has disappointed me to be honest. I never thought he was an angel but it has made me not like him now :(. I am happy for him not to come back as if he does I will be watching his matches thinking about how many woman he goes with each night which turns my stomach. I don't think I am his fan anymore that has disappointed me :(:(:(

    Good grief. I know you're just trolling, but Nadal is not as bad as you make him seem. He enjoys himself which to me is better than if he stayed with the same stone faced girl since he was 18 years old. He's human, and has needs.

    Come on, now you're just being silly. He likes sex and there's nothing wrong with that. He has been with the same girl since he was 18 yet you believe he's only been with her? A good looking, rich, famous athlete like Nadal? Get out of here. :lol:

    Well, I miss him from the tour because he has been out forever. He's my favorite player and I actually want to see him play. And Nadal is a decent person, but he's not a saint. He's hardly out there raping and pillaging. Lol.


    Gotta know about your favorite huh? :wink: Actually, I have a few, but I will not share them. No one would EVER believe them so I won't bother. Fed is pretty faithful to Mirka though, so not much comes out about him.

    Between the rumors that he's gay, that he's a regular Lothario and that he was a virgin until 25 (hey, still is even?) I have to say one cannot complain about lack of variety in the gossip department about Rafa. In the meantime, he still has the same girlfriend...

    Nadal maybe enjoying his time off court for the the last 8 months, but I think he would rather play tennis.

    M-C has always been his launching board, that's for sure. But hey, when he lost Rome and Madrid to Novak, I really feared that might be the beginning of the end for him on clay but he recovered from that just fine. When he had the early loss to Sod at RG, people were also projecting Rafa's downfall there but he recovered just fine. The thing is, he's so strong on clay and his game so much more efficient than anyone else's that tough blows don't affect him that much. His reservoir of confidence and expertise on the surface is that deep. If he lost at M-C, it would be a shock and a surprise but would it knock "the clay king" down definitively? I don't think so. My opinion is that Rafa will remain the #1 threat on clay until he retires. He's that much better than anyone else on the surface.

    He only recovered from Madrid and Rome because Federer took care of Djokovic 2.0 at 2011 FO for Nadal. In 2012 it wasn't Djokovic 2.0 any longer.

    Fed "taking care of Djoko" on clay was certainly short lived, wasn't it? Didn't seem to traumatize Djoko 1 bit judging by their recent results on the surface...

    Personally I think he'd have lost RG if he played Djokovic in 2011, and in 2009 his loss to Soderling was the last clay match of the year.

    Not saying he's a goner if he doesn't win MC but it will make the pressure much worse, and I'm talking about the 2013 season, not his career as a whole. As well as blasting people away on clay, he's won a lot of matches where he was in a spot of trouble or it looked like it could be a close one going down to the wire or all the sets were lose (off the top of my head - Coria Rome 2005, all matches vs Fed in 2006, Hamburg 2008, vs Isner 2011, Almagro RG 2010, Djokovic RG 2012, Djokovic Madrid 2009, Gulbis Rome 2010, Lorenzi 2011, Ferrer Barca 2012) Now if you lose a bit of speed and/or confidence, all of a sudden you're beatable. I would not be shocked if Djokovic became a joint favourite for clay events in the next couple of years, this depends on how Nadal maintains his game and body. But I would also not be surprised if Nadal wins RG the year he retires, ala Sampras at the US Open.

    LOL What's this new gossip about Rafa and girls? Could we at least know what you are talking about? I once read some stuff about some spanish guy being not very impressive, some swiss guy asking the girls to open their mouth before they leave, but that BS is really old.
    Seriously, are some of you childish enough to believe all those gossips? I don't even know what you are refering to.
    We already have enough to do with the tennis related gossips. I read a few posts here and there, and I avoid reading more since I don't want to waste my energy fighting right, left and centre. Between the crazy haters who try to convince themselves that he's not injured and doesn't play because a loss at Wimbledon damaged his confidence (sure, what a champion! :rolleyes:) or that there is some silent ban (and of course, he would be dumb enough to announce his come back :rolleyes:), there is enough.
    If some of you want to believe all the crazy gossips they read about the supposed private life of famous people, they will have a hard time.
    What's the next stuff? Cannibalism? Rape?

    Seriously, I'm not so sure at all that he will remain the n°1 threat on clay. Between his constant injuries and his new trend to catch every virus in sight (since 2011 and his flu just before the AO, it has never stopped). Or he's not cautious enough and doesn't protect himself enough (he seems like the kind of guy who never rests, loves to have many people around him, touch them, kiss them, party on every occasion,... ) Or he's too tired and his body is weakened.
    Whatever, I don't see him stay injury free and healthy enough time to build something.

    I apologize for speaking the truth. I should have said what you wanted to hear.

    Nadal is a virginal saint. He is the most perfect human being on the face of the earth. He has never made a mistake in his entire life, and has never slept with anyone but his stone faced girlfriend since he was 18 years old. He, unlike 99% of the male population, does not enjoy sex one bit and shuns it at every oppurtunity. Feel better now?

    I forgot this thread is infested with Vamos Brigader's who are full on delusional about Nadal who don't want to hear any truth in regards to him. It won't happen again.

    Some reality from you about Nadal's chances. I agree with you. Something has not been right with Nadal's health since 2011. It's been bizarre how often he gets sick in comparison to other player's. Makes me wonder if he has some sort of immunity problem. Add that in with his constant injury problems and it spells disaster. Eeyore is the #1 threat on clay to anyone, not Nadal. Vero is just talking nonsense again.
