Moya bets on Rafa to comeback stronger

Moya bets on Rafa to comeback stronger

Rafael Nadal has managed to win a remarkable 14 Grand Slam titles despite an injury-stricken career and he is only going to come back stronger from his latest setback, feels fellow countryman and former world number one Carlos Moya.

Nadal is back to practice following his injury to remove appendix and a stem cell treatment for his ailing back.

"He (Nadal) is starting to practice now. I have been in constant touch with him. He has been very unlucky with the injuries. Having said that, every time he has had an injury he has come back stronger than before. There is no reason to think it is going to be any different," Moya said.

"For sure, he will be back at the top soon. For the past 10 years he has been winning with all the injuries," he added.

Nadal was unable to defend his US Open crown this season due to a wrist injury before being sidelined for the rest of the season in October.

The 28-year-old, who won the French Open for the record ninth straight time this season, is eyeing a competitive return to the Australian Open.

Nadal was supposed to play the IPTL but his injury made way for another great Roger Federer.

Carlos Moya honored after retirement from tennis

Carlos Moya honored after retirement from tennis

Carlos Moya, who announced his retirement from professional tennis last week, was back on court during the ATP World Tour Finals at O2 Arena in London to be honored by the players and the ATP.

“It’s always great when people remember you, even when you’re not at the top,” Moya said. “Although I didn’t play great here at Wimbledon—well, I one year played fourth round—they treat me very well always.”

Moya was brought out on court shortly after Andy Murray beat Robin Soderling 6-2, 6-4.

The Spaniard had a great career, he won the French Open and was also the world number 1.Moya was an early training partner of Rafael Nadal.

“Knowing him for so long makes it special for me because first time I met him he was just 11, 12 years old,” Moya said of Nadal’s success. “When he was 13, 14 years old, we were practicing together. I was near the top 10 and sometimes he was beating me during the practice.

“I realized he had something special, but could never think that he could be that good, to be honest. He’s one of the greatest ever. But he’s on his way to become—who knows—but maybe the greatest. I could never expect that, to be honest.”

2010 Chennai Open: Cilic and Tipsarevic makes confident start in Chennai

2010 Chennai Open: Cilic and Tipsarevic makes confident start in Chennai

Marin Cilic defeated Igor Kunitsyn 6-2 6-4 while Janko Tipsarevic beat Carlos Moya 6-3, 7-6 in the first round of the Chennai Open 2010.

Cilic, who is the defending champion, needed an hour and 13 minutes to get past Kunitsyn.

“I think I played a pretty good match. Most important my service was very good,” Cilic said after the match.

Cilic stormed past Kunitsyn in the opening set by breaking him in the third and fifth games and quickly led 3-1 in the second.

“I think he didn’t have any breakpoints in the match which shows that I was top of him, especially in the first set,” said Cilic.

“In the second I got an early break and I was able to control from there.”

Moya showed glimpses of his great tennis game but could not sustain the momentum despite the support he got from the tennis fans.

Tipsarevic had an easy way during the first set but then things changed in the second set when Moya broke for 4-4 and then led 5-4 and 6-5, but the Serb forced a tie-break that he clinched quite comfortably.

Jan Hajek upset Simon Greul 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, in another first round match.

Gruel, ranked 59th, won the first set with a measure of comfort, but turned error-prone thereafter even as Hajek got his backhand going to take the next two and close the match in 107 minutes.

Quick Tennis News: Agassi, Moya, Roddick and more

Quick Tennis News: Agassi, Moya, Roddick and more

Just a few quick updates from the Tennis World thanks to Tennis.com...

According to Nielsen BookScan, Andre Agassi's autobiography Open was the bestselling adult non-fiction book two weeks ago and was the seventh bestselling book overall last week. The rating covers 75% of the market.

Andy Roddick indicates he is planning to play the London Olympic Games, which will stage its tennis competition at Wimbledon. "I certainly look at that 2012 year, the prospect of playing an Olympic event on grass, it's very interesting for me," he said.

Carlos Moya will make his comeback from surgery at an exhibition in Buenos Aires in December.

The ATP event in Kitzbuhel may not take place next year because of regulatory difficulties, reports APA, and Nice has expressed a desire to take over the slot.

Lukas Kubot and Oliver Marach defeat Max Mirnyi and Andy Ram 4-6, 6-4, (16-14), saving three match points.

Arlen Kantarian was paid $9.15 million by the USTA in 2008, report the Sportsbusiness Journal and AP, a figure which includes accumulated bonuses payable upon his departure last year. The Sportsbusiness Journal notes the figure is more than any ATP player has ever earned in one season except for Roger Federer's record $10.1 million in 2007.

Daniel Nestor, blogging for TennisConnected.com, joking about the status of doubles players at the ATP World Tour Finals: "The singles players, for some reason, all have their own locker room with their individual pictures on the doors while us doubles guys have to share. It seems strange that they would give guys like Federer and Nadal this kind of service, and make Nestor/Zimonjic slum it up side by side with the other teams."

Michael Russell stops Taylor Dent from winning his third challenger title since the U.S. Open, winning their match in the Champaign final 7-5, 6-4.

Carlos Moya was forced to withdrew from Indian Wells and Miami because of a hip-bone injury. The Spaniard will be sidelined indefinitely.

Moya has been bothered by leg pain for the better part of a year and he has not played since a 6-4, 7-5 loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Acapulco Open.

“It’s a real hammer blow. I wasn’t expecting this and it has put a halt to all my plans. I have had pains over the last few months but we were hoping that it wasn’t serious and that I could resume tennis little by little.” he said.

"It's early yet to know when I can come back to compete again. What I do know is that I want to return and do so when I'm 100 percent physically and mentally." Moya added.
