Rafa is always prepared

In Paris he has looked for alternatives, as in football, from 4-4-2 to 4-2-3-1. It varies and adapts. Play with what's out there and that's awesome ...

Rafa-is-always-prepared

The first time I met to train with Nadal was on a winter day in Barcelona at nine in the morning. I arrived at the CAR of Sant Cugat and I found him in short sleeves, shorts and the racket in hand. I was wearing an anorak, scarf, wool hat ... I said: 'What are you doing like that, you don't warm up? Is it very cold? ', And he replied: "I'm ready." I ran a bit and when we started, the first ball I threw at him he returned it to me at full power: Raaaaaas! I stopped and asked him: 'But how did he hit like that in the beginning'. "I hit from the first to the last blow with all the intensity I have," he replied. I promise that at that moment I already saw that it was special.

Rafa is always prepared for everything, although sometimes the conditions do not benefit him, but it does not mean that he is throwing in the towel or looking for excuses. In Paris he has looked for alternatives, as in football, from 4-4-2 to 4-2-3-1. It varies and adapts. Play with what's out there and that's awesome. That said, I see the final very even, although Nadal is more consistent, tougher on gravel, and Djokovic can become desperate. They are both very well. Rafa has raised his level and Novak the five sets against Tsitsipas I do not think they will take their toll, rather they put him in a fighting position, because if he does not go with everything he has, he cannot win on clay. The key for both is the drive. With that, Nadal has to move his rival so as not to play him four in a row against his backhand, which is almost indestructible. There will be tension, because the two play an important part of the history of tennis.
