Rafa has got to up his serve. Some of his serves against Fish were sloppy and with Any Murray there will be no second chances to fight back
 
Rafael is an honest player says Toni

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-2010099/Rafa-doesnt-cheat-insist-Team-Nadal.html

'People can say what they want but they are mistaken,' insisted Toni. 'Rafael is one of the most correct players in the world. He has never cheated in his life. If you think that, it is your problem.'
Nadal's entourage were involved in some angry words with Juan Martin del Potro's team on Monday after the champion called The Spaniard recovered enough to win in four sets but the incident raised similar questions to last year, when Germany's Philipp Petzschner accused him of faking an injury so he could have a time-out during their third-round match. Murray said yesterday that any player using the trainer to create delays is cheating.
He insisted: 'It's not something that makes a whole lot of sense to me, to feign injury to make your opponent think otherwise.
'If players do it, it is totally the wrong thing to do. It's cheating. I haven't done it and don't plan on doing it.'


I didn't know Nadal's camp had an argument with Del Potro's? I think its just the DailyFail chatting ****.

I can see it. I'm not a fan of Dull Potro. He's gullible. This is exactly what the Mac's wanted to accomplish. They've spent Nadal's entire career casting suspicion on his career. They fluctuate back and forth between praising and denigrating him. It's a shame people are so easily led, and believe everything that's told to them.

The article's wrong too. Petschner didn't say that. They kept trying to put words in his mouth. These insecure people are so ridiculous.

And its not like Djokovic will have the ranking for long, with Rafa likely gaining points in Australia next year [and Djokovic not being able to afford a slip-up] and the many Masters events Djokovic must win or face a major drop-off.
In fact even this year there is the chance Rafa could get it back, because he can gain at the Masters hardcourt events and who knows if Djokovic will even make the US Open final.
)
Bullzilla, Djokovic's reign at #1 could be very very short and wouldn't even last until the hardcourt season. If Djoko gets #1 by virtue of making it to the final but loses to Rafa, Novak would have 12,485 points. If Rafa beats him, he would have 12,070. But...and here's the kicker...Rafa has 500 points sitting in limbo that he'd get on August 8 when his zero penalty from Washington drops off, so Rafa would go up to 12,570 which would put him back to #1 again. :)

It is the DailyFail talking ****. The two camps didn't have an argument at all. On another forum a poster from South America watched the match on their Spanish channel and she heard the whole tantrum that Delpo had with the ump. Delpo was angry that the MTO was taking so long and angry at the umpire for letting it go on so long. He wasn't angry at Rafa for taking the MTO.

Delpo was also totally pissed off at the umpire for making a big deal about the time being taken between points by BOTH of them (it appeared that the ump had given Delpo grief about it during the break too, on top of giving Rafa the warning that Delpo totally disagreed with). Delpo apparently was going on about 'one second means nothing! Let us play the game.'

Of course it's not just the Daily Mail. Virtually all of the 'journalists' (I use that word disparagingly) have totally misinterpreted the exchange between Delpo and the ump and have tried to make it out as a slam against Rafa and his manner of playing. :roll:

That's what I thought, that's why I wasn't worried about the #1. Plus, Djoker deserves it for his stellar play this season. He can hold it, just can't keep it.

(That's what I like about losing the number one ranking, it means you can regain it and then you get all the news stations reporting "Rafael Nadal has regained the world number one ranking today...." it's kind of cool to hear it publicized, whereas if you never lose the ranking you are kind of taken for granted)

Well, if he say Nadal does feign, then he look like a loser/bitter. The reporter was baiting Murray to create controversy, but this time it didn't work.

(Rafa will benefit from losing that 1st set to Murray, because come the Final Rafa will be extra motivated to play at the highest level early on and take the 1st set. Obviously he didn't plan this, but it will be a psychological bonus in the Final. I really like Rafa's chances of handing out a beat-down, this the Final I wanted from the beginning because it will completely erase Djokovic's 4 wins. What is better, winning the last 4 non-slam meetings, or winning the last 2 slam meetings [actually it's the last 6 slam meetings, but last 2 are fresh in our minds]? No doubt about it :D)

Semifinal Presser
Q. You didn't look very much like the No. 2 player in the world today.
RAFAEL NADAL: For me, seriously, that's something that really doesn't matter a lot. You know, I said last year when I was No. 3 or No. 4. I said when I was No. 1 for me is not a big goal for me.
For me big goal is be competitive, be healthy. Be competitive every time when I am on court and try to be at my best in the important moments, no, in all the tournaments, because all the tournaments are important, no?
Yeah, today I lost the No. 1. I did lost the No. 1. One guy played unbelievable the first half of the year so he's the new No. 1. We just can congratulate him because what he did this first part of the season is something really impressive, really fantastic.
I am happy about how I did. I think in normal conditions I would be No. 1 ‑‑ or a lot of chances to keep being the No. 1 for me for a few more time, because my results are really good the first part of the season, too. But one guy did unbelievable, and congratulations.

Q. Zero unforced errors in the second set, two in the third, one in the fourth. How did you manage?
RAFAEL NADAL: Total seven, yeah, and 37 winners, so the statistics are really unbelievable. The true, I don't know. The statistics is something that ‑‑ we have to have a look about the statistics, but not everything is statistics, no?
In general, I think Andy played very, very high level especially the first set and the beginning of the second, too. Seriously I felt he was better player than me at that moment, so I just waited for my moment.
I felt that I am playing well the first set, too, but he was playing really good, really aggressive, serving really well. I was there all the time. I was little bit lucky ‑ I don't know exactly ‑ the first or second game of the second set with 15‑30, he had an easy forehand in the middle of the court and he miss. He miss the shot long. So after that was probably the turning point of the match.
I think after that he had a bad game with his serve. He had 30‑15, and he had unforced error with the forehand, double‑fault, and after he miss a smash.
After that, the match was close, because I was playing well, too. He lost probably little bit the intensity of the beginning. But that's true, play like he played in the first set is not easy. Is really difficult. He played really complete tennis.
After that I think I played little bit better than the beginning. I was playing well the beginning, but probably I improved little bit the level, and I played probably my best match this year here.

Q. Statistics are not important, but you played five finals in Wimbledon of the last five tournaments you played here. That is a great statistic. What do you think about that? Because only Borg, McEnroe and Federer have done it.
RAFAEL NADAL: Well, it's something for me very important. Always Wimbledon was my dream. After is my 2003, 2005, and after five finals, so it's my seventh Wimbledon probably in my career. Seventh? Eighth?

Q. Seventh.
RAFAEL NADAL: Seventh, so... I never thought that I gonna be able to play five finals, so today is a very important victory for me and very happy for everything, no?
I think is a great effort after, you know, four years without a Spanish playing the semifinals or finals here. After the last five years ‑ well, not 2009 ‑ but in five years we were there, have a Spanish in the final, so that's a fantastic news for me, but I think for our country, too.

Q. Back in 1999 Agassi became No. 1 in the world and he had to play the final with Sampras and he but lost to Sampras. The next day Agassi was No.1 but Sampras was the Wimbledon champion. Would you like to see the same scenario?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yes (smiling).

Q. When you walked out of the court you said you were sorry for Andy. How do you manage to be so competitive when you're on the court, and as soon as you are off the court you think with your heart about your competitors?
RAFAEL NADAL: I felt that during the court, too. I'm not a robot when I'm playing. I think.
Andy probably deserved to be Grand Slam winner. He's the best player without a title of Grand Slam that I ever see. So he deserve to be a champion of Grand Slam. Always he was there: final in Australia, semifinals Roland Garros, semifinals here another time. That's tough. I understand, no?
Is not easy for him be there all the time and finally he lost another time. But he's doing well. He's in the right way to win a Grand Slam. I always say the same. But that's what I feel, you know. I feel the reason is he needs little bit more lucky for moments and he will win. I still don't have any doubt on that.

Q. What are your thoughts about playing against Novak, and what do you think is the key to the match?
RAFAEL NADAL: The key is play really well and to wait the opponent don't have his best day. That is the key in these kind of matches, when you play against the best players of the world, you know.
His mental position over me today is probably a little bit better because he won the last four finals against me. And that's what it is. I'm here. I'm try my best. I think I'm playing well, really well.
We will see what's going on on Sunday, no? I will try my best. I have to play aggressive. I have to play with intensity, with rhythm. That's what I gonna try.

Q. What aspect of Novak's game will you find most challenging to overcome?
RAFAEL NADAL: Everything. Yeah.

Q. With Novak, do you think you have any advantage, perhaps even on this surface, more than clay against him? And do you think since you've been to this stage of the tournament before and he hasn't, that that might also be an advantage for you?
RAFAEL NADAL: No, I don't have an advantage here more than clay. I am better player on clay than grass. That's the true.

Q. Maybe you're a better player on grass than he is on clay.
RAFAEL NADAL: You know what? Playing two semifinals and now the final, probably he's not a bad player on grass, too. That's my feeling. Yeah.

Q. You're obviously aware of the magnitude of your achievements. How often do you think of the number 16?
RAFAEL NADAL: Of what?

Q. Grand Slams.
RAFAEL NADAL: The number 16? I think about the number 10. That's what I have at home. That's what I'm able to see when I go back home in my bedroom. I don't have 11, I don't have 12, I don't have 15, or 16. 16 is very far. I believe the number is not gonna stop there. Roger will have more chances to win more.
Seriously, is not my goal. Disappointing is not my goal. But I am very happy about my 10. I gonna try my best to keep being competitive in important tournaments, and we will see in the next years what's going on. We'll see Sunday. We'll see in the future what's going on.
The career of Roger is probably impossible to repeat. You know, if you look of the history of tennis, he's the player with more Grand Slams in I don't know how many years of history of the tennis, 100?

Q. 125 this year.
RAFAEL NADAL: Is gonna be strange he's the player with more Grand Slams ever. Gonna be strange that three years, four years after one player win more than the best ever, no? So probably that's not gonna happen.

Q. You had issues with your foot earlier in the competition. Was that an issue at all today, and will it be in the final on Sunday?
RAFAEL NADAL: I talked about the foot the other day. I said how was the problem, how is my foot. Is exactly the same than a few days ago. I did exactly the same than in the previous match.
So I said two days ago I not worried about the foot. I know what's going on. I know with the treatment that I am doing to play I don't gonna have any problem. I don't feel nothing.

Q. This attitude of yours focusing on the competition and the preparation and the health, not so much on the numbers and the results, is that something that's always come that easy to you?
RAFAEL NADAL: Don't think about the?

Q. When you speak about not caring about numbers, results, and records, you talk about focusing being on competitive, preparation. Is it an attitude that's always been like that for you?
RAFAEL NADAL: Seriously, I care about records, I care about the statistics, and I care about the history of tennis, for sure. But, you know, is not the right moment for me to talk about that. I have 25 years old. I am playing.
And talk about the history when ‑ I don't know when my career is going to finish ‑ is probably something that is to talk. We will see when I finish my career where I am in the history of tennis. We will see what's going on.
Right now for me, my history is I am in the final of Wimbledon. Very happy for that. I will have a very difficult match on Sunday. Let's enjoy it. Let's try my best on Sunday. That's my history today.
The history of tennis, we'll have time to talk about it.

Q. There are many statistics in the game. Which ones to you are the most important?
RAFAEL NADAL: I don't know which way you are talking.

Q. Majors won, weeks at No. 1, Davis Cup.
RAFAEL NADAL: I am not a specialist on that, so we have to look around and see about different facts. In my opinion, for sure the Grand Slam is probably the most important thing.
But is a mistake think only about the Grand Slams, because the tennis is much more than four tournaments every year, you know.
For me the records of Roger are unbelievable. 16 Grand Slams are unbelievable. But he has a few probably more difficult things to do or more unbelievable things to do. I don't know. He have 23 or 24 straight semifinals in Grand Slams. That's really unbelievable.
In my opinion, for me is much more difficult win in the clay season Monte‑Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, Madrid, Hamburg a few years ago, than win Roland Garros. Seems like the most important thing is Roland Garros, is true.
But if we talk about the quality of tennis, is much more difficult win the other four than win Roland Garros. Probably that's for the history didn't count that much for the spectators.
But for the people of tennis and for the people who love this sport and who understand this sport from inside, everybody knows that's more difficult than win a Grand Slam.
You know, Andy Murray today didn't win a Grand Slam, but he's much more better player than a lot of player who won a Grand Slam in the past. That's the true.

Q. Your head‑to‑heads against your opponents, is that important?
RAFAEL NADAL: I don't think so. Is another fact, but is nothing really decisive, in my opinion.

Q. Having your family, your mother, father, sister, does it help you to relax or does it change the focus in any way?
RAFAEL NADAL: No. For me seriously doesn't matter, no? I am happy to be with them here. They are supporting me here. They are with me during the day off. I like to be with people. I don't like a lot to be alone. If more people are here is a little bit more fun for me during the free hours.
So for me is always a pleasure have the family around, have my team around, the people who are close to me around me, because that's makes me happy. Seems like I'm more at home.

Q. How would you describe Novak's ability to defend, his movements around the court compared to some other players you've played against? Is he among the best, the quickest or...
RAFAEL NADAL: No, I think his game is really complete defending. When he attack, too. Probably he's defending a little bit better than previous years this year.
But in my opinion, his general game, his total game, is really complete: good serve, very good movements, very easy, his eyes are very fast, and he can go inside the court very easy playing very difficult shots. Very easy for him because he takes the ball very early.
In my opinion, his biggest ability is take the ball very early. That's something very difficult. Roger do very well, too. That's something very difficult, and they do very easy.

Hello everybody,

My first words go to Andy Murray, he is a very talented player, a really good one, best of best and yesterday during the first set he proved it once again. What a first set, there was no way I could keep up with his shots! I always say it but it will be sooner than later that he will win a Grand Slam. And I also think that even if he hasn’t won a major yet, he is much better than some players that have won one!

And my next thing is to thank the crowds! Once again they proved how respectful, fair and knowledgeable are. These are arguably the best crowd in the World since they have always been very supportive with their local player but also with the rival. Every time I’ve played here they have been like this! Really feel good here!

And to finalize, wanted to congratulate Novak for being number one. He has been the best player so far this year and deserves to be the ATP World number 1.

As you can imagine I am very happy for being again on the final of Wimbledon. If anyone would have told me when I was 15, or 16 or 19 years old that I would have played 5 finals at Wimbledon I would have not believed it. But I am very fortunate and tomorrow I will be playing my fifth final here. Very excited and looking forward to that. I am sure it will be difficult for me to sleep well tonight….
Q&A
Q&A: Get your questions into Rafa by e-mailing rafa@timesonline.co.uk and follow his progress in his own words.

1. Hello Rafa! Next year when you come back to Wimbledon for Olympic Games, will you be staying at the Olympic village with all other sportsmen or at the apartment same as during the regular tournament? Best wishes from all your fans in Bangladesh. Upoma & Paroma, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Yes, I am really looking forward to coming back here next year twice at least. The Olympics is something special. I will be staying during Wimbledon at the house I rent, but during the games at the Olympic village with all the athletes. I loved that atmosphere and would like to live it again!

Why do you call Maymo “Tin Tin”? Is it because he looks like the Belgian detective cartoon? Atch
Hahahahahah. We started like that one day and now we all call him like that. He didn’t like it much at the beginning, but now it’s OK.

Hi Rafa. Which of your Nike kits in recent years would you say is your favourite? Mine was the one you wore at Roland Garros when you won last year. Great colours and design. Nicole
I actually love all their designs. I love the fact that they always have live colors, except here the white of Wimbledon, which I also think is special and like it.

There is a lot of talk on Twitter that you will be joining after Wimbledon, is this true? And if you are, can you tell us when exactly? Looking forward to your tweets! Sofie from NYC
Yes, I am thinking about it. Not sure if it will be right after Wimbledon or when we go to Montreal.

Wimbledon is the only tournament where the winner is not taken to some famous city sight to be photographed with the trophy the next day, as is the practice in New York, Paris and Melbourne. If you could choose a famous sight in London to go to for an official photograph, where would it be and why? Julie (Woofs)
True. I suppose that the picture at that gorgeous stadium is strong enough for them. Maybe the first one would be in front of the Big Ben I suppose. Will have to ask Benito Perez-Barbadillo, my publicist.

What’s your second favourite European country (Spain being the first, I assume)? Have you ever been to Hungary? Edina
I have never been to Hungary, but I hear it is beautiful, especially the capital, Budapest. I love many things of many countries, especially cities like Paris, Rome, London and many others.

Lucky you. You'll miss the explosion of threads after tomorrows final. Whatever the outcome. Either way enjoy the match. Who's going to take on the huge task of posting gifs? :mrgreen: (runs)

Having watched the womens final it put things into perspective. If Rafa loses tomorrow it's not the end of the world.

The sadder part is that, they're too old for such immaturity. If a person can't accept that others may not feel the same way as they do, I think that's a problem.

If you're old enough to type on the internet, you should be mature enough to post without attacking others.

Believe it or not, you've come at a relatively "calm" time. The board used to be insane. I think many people have lost a bit of steam, now they're just hurt, and acting that way to try to hurt others.

There's a saying. "Hurt people, hurt people." So, you have to demonstrate patience with them, after all, they're the ones that are hurt, ha ha ha.

After beating Murray, Nadal said: 'I'm very sad for Andy, he deserves to reach a final here.'

Asked about breaking British fans' hearts, Perello said: 'I won't speak about it.'
Yes your royal highness, because saying something as simple as "I am very happy for my boyfriend of course but sad for Andy and his fans" would have somehow broken or revealed whatever secret service secret you need to be protected from or it would have given us more hindsight into your life...no, I won't speak about it is all that is acceptable.pft :roll: They should have asked his sister or someone else in his fam. They're a bit more cooperative and less up their own arse.

What's wrong with not speaking about it? I wouldn't either, knowing how the press twist your words for their own ends.

How could you possibly get the worlds most twisted story by simply saying at least "very sad for andy" (additional) I know him since he steals my boyfriend away from me many times to play playstation. jokes.

But still, you are more likely to get the story twisted by her saying not gonna speak about it. It leaves the door wide open for what she could have meant,. Hence what was written in the article. "perello managed to contradict her man" by not speaking she could have meant "i'm soooooooooo sad i can't speak" but at the same time it can mean, "i don't give a damn about andy. he means nothing to me nor do his fans". She always does this like when she was being escorted thinking she was lady gaga. But anyways :twisted:

It is the DailyFail talking ****. The two camps didn't have an argument at all. On another forum a poster from South America watched the match on their Spanish channel and she heard the whole tantrum that Delpo had with the ump. Delpo was angry that the MTO was taking so long and angry at the umpire for letting it go on so long. He wasn't angry at Rafa for taking the MTO.

Delpo was also totally pissed off at the umpire for making a big deal about the time being taken between points by BOTH of them (it appeared that the ump had given Delpo grief about it during the break too, on top of giving Rafa the warning that Delpo totally disagreed with). Delpo apparently was going on about 'one second means nothing! Let us play the game.'

Of course it's not just the Daily Mail. Virtually all of the 'journalists' (I use that word disparagingly) have totally misinterpreted the exchange between Delpo and the ump and have tried to make it out as a slam against Rafa and his manner of playing. :roll:
The Daily Mail used to be a FAIRLY decent newspaper but now it has become just another awful tabloid. Anything to sell news in this present climate whereby people are cutting down on everything

From the male perspective I think it's a good answer. She's basically saying "Hey morons, this doesn't concern me." Why the heck would they ask her in the first place? Definitely fishing for controversy. Great answer IMO. Seems like a smart girl.
