Twice, Nadal and Lopez teamed to win the BNP Paribas Open doubles title, but Nadal said Monday will be the first time they face each other in doubles. “Yeah, he doesn’t want to play with me anymore,” Nadal said laughing. “I want all the best for Marc. He’s one of my closest friends, probably my closest friend on tour. It’s not a comfortable situation the match tomorrow, but at the end, we are professionals. We are going to try our best, both of us.” Further making the doubles matchup unusual is the fact that Lopez and Nadal are rooming together in Indian Wells. Then Nadal felt it was important to clarify. “We sleep in different beds but together (in the same room),” Nadal said laughing.

“He’s an aggressive player,” Nadal said of Sijsling. “I think I played well. I think I played a solid match to be the first match. I played with not many mistakes, winning a good percentage of points with my serve. One very important thing for me are the movements, and I think I moved myself a little bit quicker tonight than what I was doing one month ago.

Con un 95% de efectividad en el primer servicio y un ejercicio funcionarial, completado el trabajo, Nadal da un golpe sobre la mesa, se levanta y zanja el coloquio. Se despide con un brinco victorioso y enfila rápido el vestuario.
