PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal hits the practice court in Paris

Rafael Nadal was hard at work on the practice courts earlier today in Paris. The world No. 1 will start his campaign on Tuesday or Wednesday against either Fernando Verdasco or Jeremy Chardy.


  1. i dont expect rafa to win this tournament indoor is his least favourite surface and novak is the best indoor tennis player but i hope nadal will play injury free

  2. It is so exciting to see Rafa in Paris. It is my least favorite Masters, but I miss seeing Rafa play. Win or lose, he is so wonderful to watch. I am sad that Novak will probably pass Rafa as number one, but Rafa’s injury hampered him. Novak has never been my favorite, but we cannot deny that he is playing extremely well now. Whatever happens, I just want Rafa to play well and be healthy!

    • Me too…Novak is great tennis player and lately very lucky too….big respect, but never my favorite player…I worry Rafa is not ready, but he probably wants to try too….to see where he is…before London
