Nadal News
 
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/s...ow/5663695.cms

Says he would like to play against France in the Davis cup soon after wimbledon. That would be a very watchable tie, another chance for him to make the french crowd cry. :)

oh I thought he was injured again.

Yes indeed. The Frenchies will be bawling in tears watching Nadal execute his ugly strokes, if he gets to play at all.

Haha.

And what a flattering pic in that article for Rafa.

Defending the title is rather unrealistic at this point tho.

Back to 100% fitness it looks like/maybe(hopefully). But it will probably take him a few tournaments to get back to 100% tennis form.

Rafa gave the interview in Spanish and that's not what he said.

He was referring to the speed of the courts in IW and Miami. ;)

This is what he said

El primer objetivo, el más inmediato, es jugar bien en la temporada americana de pista dura. Ya sabe que defiendo 1.000 puntos en Indian Wells, como campeón 2009. Pero la principal idea es jugar bien. Para llegar a la tierra batida con la confianza suficiente.

Hmmm. Interesting.

Is he back to 100% or not? He had stated he was 100% earlier this year, then after losing, said he wasn't. He also stated he wouldn't play a tournament (wimbledon) if he wasn't 100%, yet played several lower level tournaments right after, even though he had stated he wasn't 100%.

and what would "100% tennis form" look like in Nadal's case? When he is winning? or whenever convenient?

CMM,

You believe Nadal is a doper. Any doper is not worth having their picture in here. So stop!
