Hello everyone. Here I am again writing the blog from Roland Garros on my web site ( www.rafaelnadal.com ). I know that El Mundo and ATPtennis.com are picking it up too.
Today, I’m writing after dinner that’s why it is so late. I won’t talk about the match or the press conference. After each match we have a press conference, and I usually go 20 to 25 minutes after finishing the match, sometimes, not often, I go before and other times a little later. I talk to the journalists in the press conference quite frankly and tell them everything that goes through my mind. I still have to talk to them about the play-station and the defeat. I’ll get to that in a minute.

First, I want to tell you that I’m writing this blog now, after dinner, because after finishing so late (I played the 5th match) and returning from the club after dealing with the press, I took a quick shower, and we went out to dinner. There were my uncle Toni, who doesn’t always come to dinner, and who, if he comes, eats very little, Rafa Maymo, who is my trainer, as you know, and Alex Corretja. We went to a pizzeria on the Champs Élysées, and from there I went to have an ice-cream with my uncle before returning to the hotel. By now, it is 1 o’clock in the morning, and before going to bed I’m writing this blog, which will be short.

Returning to the play-station, I’m going to tell just a little and will write more some other time. It is already somewhat known on tour that we play soccer matches in each tournament. When the four of us are in the same tournament and above all at the same hotel, we usually play some matches, Carlos Moya and David Nalbandian against David Ferrer and me. The day before yesterday, we played and lost. Carlos, who is quite good and assertive, they beat us. However, yesterday’s [match] was UNBELIEVABLE! We always play the best of 5 matches, 5 sets as we call it. Whoever has three wins and whoever loses does something that we bet on like some push-ups or whatever.

In this case, Ferru (David Ferrer) and I won the first two matches and in the third one, which should have been the decisive one, we marked the golden goal… It looked like we had won. We started to jump around and all, when suddenly we saw that they cancelled our goal from the outside. Golden goal, and the referee overturned it. Unbelievable. In the end, as you might imagine, we lost the three matches. This is the story – so sad and so unfair, hahahaha. Today, we were not able to play, but we’ll see to it that we get our revenge soon. But first David has to get a new remote control, because he broke one yesterday.

As for today, I got up not too late for breakfast. I had it peacefully in my room and ate some chocolate cereal. We went to the club around noon, as warm-up was at 1 p.m. Since there were so many matches scheduled today, the courts were all full and that’s why the tournament makes more players share them. Those who play have priority in using the courts at the club for warm-up; those that are not playing that day usually go to another club to practice on those first days. Hence, I was on court warming up with Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and there were also some other players.
Afterwards, I spent most of the time in the locker room waiting and watching the different matches being played on the monitors, especially the ones of the Spaniards. I only left the locker room to go eat. We went upstairs and my uncle, Maymo and I ate with Nico Lapentti and his coach Bebe Perez. Afterwards I returned to the locker room and did not leave it until they called us for the match.

As I said, you can find out about the match and the press conference in the media. Tomorrow, I will practice at 1 p.m. and then take a shower and eat before meeting with the Spanish press at 3:15 p.m. I feel relaxed with them and talk a little bit about everything. About my impressions here, how I feel. They will be here throughout the tournament and I like being with them.

By the way, I wanted to say that I never was at Djokovic’s party in Belgrade last week. Some media outlet published that I was there, while I was really in Mallorca playing golf with my uncle and others and working out in the afternoon.

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.
