Rafa on Gulbis: “Tomorrow I play against an opponent who is very dangerous. He’s playing well and he’s having a great season. I had a tough match against him in Indian Wells this year…He’s an aggressive player, big serve, big shots from the baseline, and I have to be playing great if I want to have any chance.”

Some fans and odds-makers believe Djokovic can win the calendar-year Grand Slam this season. Indeed he could. Others are convinced Federer has another Wimbledon title in him, which he might. A few even insist this will be the summer of Andy Murray. Hey, anything’s possible. But it would be foolish to count Nadal out — not just at Roland Garros but at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open as well. Because no matter what condition his knees are in, this much should be clear by now: Rafa knows tennis.

The Real Federacion Espanol de Tenis confirmed on Tuesday that the Caja Magica, location of Rafael Nadal’s recent ATP Masters-1000 triumph, will host the tie which will decide who plays in the competition’s top tier next season.
