Hello Everybody,

I’m Rafa Nadal and I write this blog for the second year in a row from Paris. Actually I got to Paris on Thursday afternoon last week, I think it was the 24th of May and today I start the blog which I will be writing for www.rafaelnadal.com during this tournament.
didn’t know if I would be doing it again this year, but I think that quite a few people liked it last year and that some people had fun reading what I wrote at the end of each day. It’s almost like a diary and people like reading diaries. I’ve read many of the comments people wrote about the blog. I usually have a look at the media on the internet and I also check out people’s comments. It’s unbelievable that some people almost put themselves in our position and they know what we think. Others a bit less, but that’s fine. I respect everybody and I enjoy reading the comments.

Now we are back to Roland Garros again, one year later and we’re delighted to be here. The season went well so far and I come here in a very good mood. I know that it will be very difficult to win here. In a tournament everything can happen, even more if the tournament goes over two weeks. I always try to focus on every match, knowing that every match will be difficult and that you only have to think point after point, and if you win, you start thinking about the next match. That’s the only way you can reach goals.

Since this is my first day doing the blog, I would like to tell you about what I did since I arrived in Paris, as well as talk about my week before Roland Garros. As I said before, I arrived from Mallorca on Thursday.

Before that, I left Hamburg on Monday, flying to Barcelona with an early flight, at 9:20 AM. At 7:30 AM I met in the lobby with the driver who would take myself and Alex Corretja who was on that flight as well to the airport. After a few weeks of competition I had to take part in two activities in Barcelona which my agent Carlos Costa had set up for me. One of them was a NIKE presentation. I don’t think I have to tell you more about that since the media already reported about it. The other activity was filming a spot for PlayStation 3.
I left to Manacor at 8 PM and to be honest I have to tell you that I was a bit tired. I stayed at home with my parents and my sister on Tuesday and Wednesday, and I also played some golf with my uncle Miguel Angel and some other people. This helped me a lot to refresh my mind and to make better fitness training in the afternoon and I got to Paris feeling very well after those two days of relaxing.

My uncle Toni, my trainer Rafael Maymo and myself left from Palma airport on Thursday morning, where my father took us by car. We had to stop in Barcelona where Carlos Moya and his team, as well as my manager Carlos Costa, joined us for the rest of the trip. That afternoon we had arranged for a practice session with Carlos Moya, who you know is a very good friend of mine and a great person. On the plane we talked about several things, including the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. Moyini (that’s how I call Carlos Moya) and myself like Formula 1 a lot and we talked to Carlos Costa to see which Grand Prix we could visit. It’s difficult because tennis is played every week and that makes it difficult to find a date on which we could go to a Grand Prix. That’s why we were looking at the calendar. We’ll see. Hugo Boss invited us and we are checking what to do.

I’ll also tell you what I did on Sunday: After having breakfast in the hotel in the morning, we went to practice with Albert Montañes from 11 AM to 1 PM. We had enough time to go slow, practice well and to sit in front of the TV to watch the start of the Grand Prix in Monaco at 2 PM. As you know it was raining quite a lot yesterday but I think that we were lucky because we could practice from 11AM to 12:45 PM. Afterwards it started raining and we had to stop. It’s ok, in the end we played an hour and 45 minutes and that’s good if you think about all the rain after that. Besides that, as I said, it gave us the opportunity to be ready to see the race which we saw and enjoyed on site.
After that we went back to the hotel.

Today was also a strange day. We got up and came here while it was raining so much that you have to change your plans. At 11:45 AM I left the hotel with Toni, Rafa Moymo and Carlos Costa. We went to Roland Garros where we had to decide whether to look for another site where we could practice. Carlos knew an indoor place where we could practise and we went there. It took us like 10, 15 minutes by car. I was practicing with Nenad Zimonjic and we went there all of us together and could practise for two hours, which is not bad at all since with all the rain today there where no matches and there was no practice either. After that we got back to Roland Garros to have lunch and then we left to the hotel.

Today I wrote the blog before going out for dinner and therefore it is a bit shorter since Moya, Rafa Maymo, my uncle and others are waiting for me downstairs. As I play tomorrow I like to have dinner a bit earlier. Tomorrow I’m the fifth match and we’ll see what happens. Besides that something happened, but I don’t want to speak about it yet…nothing serious, nothing important, but unbelievable. I’ll tell you about today’s defeat at the playstation.

Greetings to all of you.

Rafa Nadal.

Подпись автора

Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.
