Hello Everybody,

I don’t know, if the other day I was trapped with writing, today it’s impossible… I really don’t know what I can write nor what I should write. I’m sorry. I know that some people criticize me for that but I only tell you the truth. Today I played one of the most important matches of the year and still I’m a bit blocked for writing. I don’t know if it is because I have too many things that I could tell you or simply because I don’t think I should tell them.

The case is that we are here, happy once again to be in the Roland Garros final. I’ve already talked about it in the press conference and I imagine that you’ll get the comments since there were more journalists than ever. This happens at almost every tournament like here, since the event is bigger there are also more journalists. I think that it will be easy for you to find news about the match. I only tell you that I think that I played at a very good level and that I’m feeling well.

Before matches we warm-up. It’s a bit different from practice on a normal day when there’s no match because we do the movements we except to do on court and for example we don’t play competition points. The person who accompanies you, who helps you warm-up, knows that it’s not a useful practice session for him. Today I practiced with a Colombian boy, a junior called Alejandro Gonzalez. A very nice guy and I hope that he’ll do well here and in his career. He told me that he lost in the first round in the juniors tournament here but I’m sure that he’ll be more lucky at other tournaments because he plays pretty well. I saw what he did and I saw that he lost against the player who’s now in the final. Well, he’ll have more opportunities.

My mother, my grandmother, my uncle Rafael and his wife joined my father and the rest of the team here in Paris. They were in the club this afternoon and they came back to the hotel before me. I arrived at the hotel at 9:30 PM and we went for dinner at 9:45 PM. We went to the Italian restaurant of the other day where Moyini did the trunk flexions. Vitto had booked a table for the whole group. Giorgio was there as well and we ate pretty well once again.

To tell you the truth we do a lot of press work after the match. Today it was a bit shorter but I understand and know that it’s like that. They tell me that I have another press conference tomorrow and that’s what I don’t understand. I really don’t know anything new that I could tell them. I’ve said everything today!!! Besides that there was a funny moment when I was asked about my favorite female player and I said that it was Henin. When I said that she was it because of her tennis and only that, all journalist were laughing, thinking about the double sense. I had to make clear that I just referred to the one which seems the most complete playing tennis. NOTHING ELSE!!!

Well tomorrow I will tell you more things. I also wanted to send greetings to a “Mallorquin” who sent me a message via Carlos Costa today. His name is Jose Ramon. Thanks a lot for the email that you sent me today. I only tell you to be very enthusiastic and thanks again for the support. I hope that you continue being motivated for the tennis.

Hugs to everybody.

Rafa

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.

Hola!

Tonight I write to you quickly from my room before going to bed in order to relax for the so important day of tomorrow. Today was an intense day. A lot of people around me all the time, during practice, with the press, at the hotel, in my room and even at the bar where we went to see the football match.

I will be fast today, coming straight to the point. Today I practiced at 1 PM on court 3. It is a court which is close to center court and it has got stands. They play matches there during the tournament, but now that almost all competitions are finished we could practice there. There were quite a lot of people in the stands and that’s nice. I don’t know, the people support you a lot and they are really lovely.

At the beginning I didn’t have to do press today because I did quite a lot last night and I didn’t think that it was necessary. Yesterday I went for dinner after press, then directly to bed and this morning to practice. Actually the practice court was full of journalists and cameras and I was pleased to talk to them at the end of the practice session. I show a picture which was taken during today’s “improvised” press conference that Benito organized with the Spanish press. After that I had to do some international press as well upstairs in the press room, something that wasn’t planned at the beginning. Today I ate pretty late (at 3:30 PM) and at 4:15 PM I went back to the hotel to relax.

During the afternoon in the hotel I was chatting a bit over the internet with some friends and then I went downstairs for an interview with Alex Corretja and Rosana Romero from TVE. Who do I chat with? With friends from Manacor, with people I know etc. Not many, to be honest there a only a few to who I talk always. But I like to keep in touch with the them and with internet it’s much easier. Since I have a web cam in my computer they can see me and I can see them as well.

As I said I had an appointment with TVE at 7:30 PM but I went downstairs a bit later, just on time to do the interview and go out for dinner at a bar where Carlos Costa has made reservations to see the matches of the Spanish League. Yes, yes, the matches. We saw the two at a bar in the center of Paris and they were really unbelievable. I was excited because I hadn’t seen matches for quite some time and we had a lot of fun. We also ate there and afterwards I went back to the hotel to sleep early.

Many of you will be asking if I’m nervous tonight. I want to be honest with everybody. Of course I’m a bit nervous and it will cost me more than usually to go to sleep. I imagine (and I know) that it’s a normal thing. Of course it’s normal to be nervous before an important final. I’m sure that other sportsmen feel the same before playing a Champions League final or so. Tomorrow when I walk on court I will be nervous for sure and the important thing is to know how to get through that moment. That and playing well, of course. But yes, I’m a bit nervous and that’s normal.

Tomorrow I practice at 11:30 AM. Today after practice I asked Vittorio Selmi from the ATP to look for a player to warm-up. It will be a 30-minute warm-up and then I’ll go to the locker room, take a shower, eat something and I’ll focus on the match in the locker-room.

Well, we’ll see how it goes, wish me good luck.

Greetings to everybody.

Rafa
