Rafael Nadal Australian Open Interview

Rafael Nadal - January 12, 2008
Australian Open Pre Tournament Interview

Q. How you feeling physically ahead of the Australian Open?
RAFAEL NADAL: Perfect, no? Physical is no one problem, so I am very happy about that.

Q. Chennai seemed to be quite a demanding week for you with that long semifinal. Been no problems with that?
RAFAEL NADAL: No. Was only tired, no? Was terrible semifinal, no? Four hours match. Well, I only have less than 24 hours for recover. I go to sleep late because I finish the match late. Was tough to recover.
So Michael play good tennis and he beat me very easy.

Q. What do you think of the courts, the new courts?
RAFAEL NADAL: I don't see too much difference. My opinion. I don't know.

Q. You have a chance to take the No. 1 ranking. Is that a focus for you?
RAFAEL NADAL: I think is not a real chance   not yet.

Q. Do you feel like you're better prepared for Melbourne than you have been ever before in terms of having played here now over the last few years, gained a bit more experience?
RAFAEL NADAL: 2005 I played very well, no? I have big chance for go to quarterfinals. I lost against Hewitt. Last year probably was worst year. I play bad tennis.
This year I am arriving well, practicing well, and I had some matches in Chennai. So I hope will be fine for Monday.

Q. Are you feeling confident?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yes, I am. I say, no? I practice very well, very good the week before. In Chennai, I play some tough matches. It's important to win like semifinals. Is always important match for confidence.
Well, is first important tournament of the season. Well, always is new. Is not always new, but seems like new every year, no? Well, gonna be interesting. I gonna try my best, no? I think I am prepared.

Q. What is your expectation for this tournament?
RAFAEL NADAL: Play good. That's my expectation.

Q. Do you think Roger's illness, the fact he hasn't played any competitive matches, will be a benefit for the rest of the men's competition here?
RAFAEL NADAL: I will tell you in two weeks.

Q. It certainly doesn't hurt the competition, though, does it?
RAFAEL NADAL: Depends, no? Because if Roger play one match, two matches, that's enough for him, no? Normally maybe he don't have a lot of problems in the first rounds, so he can get the rhythm in these first two rounds. And later, that's fine.

Q. Last year I remember you played a very exciting match against Andy Murray, a five set match. You perhaps have seen that he won in Doha. Do you think he may have the sort of year that Djokovic had last year?
RAFAEL NADAL: Well, we will see, no? I think is not good speak about that for him. For him, too, no?
Well, he start the season very well. My opinion, if he last year don't have the injury, maybe he gonna be in Shanghai for last year. He wasn't in Shanghai. Disappointing for him, he has important injury in Hamburg.
I think he gonna have his chances for have unbelievable year, no? But is early to speak about that, no? I think he has everything for be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 of the world.

Q. What did you do in December?
RAFAEL NADAL: Practice   a lot. Too much (laughter).

Q. Training, too? Hitting balls? Playing sets?
RAFAEL NADAL: 8:30 to 9:30 physical performance. 9:30 to 1 tennis. 3 to 5 tennis. 6 to 7:15 physical, and after I sleep. I always go to sleep at 1:00 in the morning, something like this. I don't know, this year in December, at 10:30 I was in the sofa watching the TV only five minutes, later sleeping every time, every day.

Q. Did you get any chance over Christmas to have a little bit of time off, to just relax as a normal person?
RAFAEL NADAL: Well, I spend the Christmas with the family, dinner. Well, after the family dinner, I go out a little bit with the friends. Well, a little bit more than a little bit (smiling). The next day is day off, holiday.

Q. As far as the draw goes, are you happy with it? It looks like you could play Moya?
RAFAEL NADAL: Who is playing against Carlos Moya?

Q. That could potentially happen in the quarterfinals.
RAFAEL NADAL: I would love to be in fourth round against Moya, no? I am focused about first round now.
Always is the same. You always ask me the same and I always answer the same.

Q. Is there any aspect of your game that you've worked on in December that you feel like you needed to improve to take that next step?
RAFAEL NADAL: I think in one month is impossible to improve a lot. That's my opinion. But in one month you can work for continuing improve during the competition, no? You have to improve, not new things, well, for example, if you are going to volley more than before, well, you can volley very good in the practice, but for improve you have to do in the match, no? That's an example. I don't gonna be serve and volley right now (smiling).

Q. Is there anything that you can do in the December month to prepare for the conditions here, for the heat?
RAFAEL NADAL: Well, in Mallorca the weather is not the same for sure in December, no? Was tough year in December. Some days terrible cold. But I practice a lot, no? I practice hard. So week before I was in Chennai. It's hot. Similar like this. A little bit more humid. That's good preparation. And I arrive here Tuesday night, so I have some days for adapt.

Q. Do you like it to be hot? Do you prefer if they keep the roof open when it's hot?
RAFAEL NADAL: Today is perfect. Two days ago, too much. 42 degrees is too much. I practiced.

Q. Is 40 degrees in Mallorca completely different?
RAFAEL NADAL: Mallorca, it's not 40 degrees.

Q. Not 40 ever?
RAFAEL NADAL: Well, I was in the players, not lounge, but when we were having lunch outside, because inside was no table two days ago, I think. Yeah, two days ago. In Mallorca, that's never happening, something like this. If you have cover, not in the sun, always a little bit fresh air anyway if is the summer.
But here, it's terrible.

ga tahu juga sih...
soalnya Marat nih emang jago banget tapi seiring berjalannya waktu dan dia juga pernah cedera..aku khawatir Marat ga nyampe final, lagian nggak 1 quarter sama Rafa...jadi mungkin bisa ketemu Marat di semi ato mungkin Final
itu juga kalo Marat berhasil lolos...soalnya aku ga gitu2 yakin...dia kan sekarang kayknya males maen tennis...ga ada passion

sola Rafa...aku ga tahu..dia bilang sih kondisinya OK
tapi kok kedua lututnya masih diperban ya???saat sesi latihan ???
tapi kita percaya aja apa yang dikatakan Rafa ;)

Rafa was made to fight for every point by the 126th-ranked Troicki in the night centre court match but finally prevailed after two hours 35 minutes, winning 7-6 (7/3), 7-5, 6-1 and will next play Frenchman Florent Serra in the second round

Rafa bikin blog buat fansnya selama Aussie Open :D :D
ini cerita2 Rafa 2 minggu ke depan (gw postingin) kalo lagi off court
:D :D

14 of January. - Hello to all once again. I know that it would not have thus of being, but first blog is going to be enough short. By two reasons: Because it is very late, here they are the 2 in the morning and I finish arriving at my room of the hotel and because in many of the questions that they have sent to me already they contain many of the things of which it thought to speak. The first example, the one of the question on if I have thought about the one to be number one in this match. To whom it will have been happened to think to him about that possibility?

mathematically clear that the logic is possible but, the statistic and normality are that it is not thus. Safe Federer that it goes for ahead and is difficult that it loses. And I do not know how the match will go. I hope that well, logically. Since I have said in press, I am well. I have been training or and I physically am or.

Another day, as I say, I write on these last months. But I believe that what more interests to you to know is what there am been doing since the year began. Chennai was my first match (and almost the last one of the 2007). I am contented with to have arrived at the end. The party against Moyà was hardest and on the following day it could not move to me. It is normal. Nothing worrisome. Youhzny in addition always is hard so to play in those conditions it was difficult.

Tuesday at night I arrived at Melbourne and my Toni uncle, who was not in Chennai (Francis Roig and Maymo came with me), arrived Thursday in the morning early. Since there am saying to you, I am well and I was training in double session during these days. Today I even played twice. To the 12 with Calleri 30 minutes and to 6 with Moyà other 30. Both played today also and the truth is that I am in favor very sad of the defeat of Carlos. During the party it watched the end of his, the result. They have said to me that it was a very good party and that Koubek played like never. Bad luck. Carlos was playing very well. A pity.

As I say, I trained to 12 and later I became to the hotel. I had lunch (and I had supper) in my room with Rafel Maymo, my fisioterapeuta. We saw something of the series Prison Break. It will already tell you.

Greetings to all

 Rafa Nadal

No nonsense for Nadal
Wednesday, 16 January, 2008

No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal has made short work of his second round encounter with Florent Serra, easing past the Frenchman 6-0 6-2 6-2 on Rod Laver Arena.

The Spaniard hardly worked up a sweat, dropping just four games and producing 39 winners to completely overwhelm Serra.

The match lasted just 94 minutes, Nadal claiming victory with his ninth ace.

Nadal started the match in imposing fashion, breaking Serra in the opening game and denying him any opportunity to find a way back.

The three-time French Open winner is now on course for a third round meeting with either Rainer Schuettler or Gilles Simon.

Nadal's best performance at an Australian Open is a quarter-final placing in 2007.


ye.......menang!!!!!!! :D :D :D
