Rafael Nadal talks about Dustin Brown: “It is difficult to think about how the match going to be; he’s not a usual player. Anything can happen. He beat me last year in Halle. It is little bit different, the surface and everything. He’s a tough player. He won today against good opponent. Probably he will come with good confidence. I’m going to try to be ready for it.”



  1. Will someone please tell Nadal that it’s time to ask his coach Uncle Tony to retire, in favor of someone more attuned to the style of those Rafa will play in the future. That, and get him to understand that those “good luck” or nervous or whatever else those habits he engages in before each serve don’t serve any purpose. All he needs is the self confidence to know he’s a great player.

    • Indeed Nadal is a great TOP player!!!! : ) He along w his current brilliant and dedicated team is awesome & successful!!!! : ) VAMOS DEAR RAFA!!!!! : )
