An interview with: Rafael Nadal

Q: Congratulations. Bravo and can you tell us if you were feeling a little bit off. It seemed you played short and behind and then suddenly things changed He was taking the initiative and you seemed to be a little worried?
NADAL: At the beginning of the match? I do not agree. Sorry – I started playing winners with my forehand and later he had good point with his serve an did lose the break point and went against the net and I lost attacking not defending the ball and when he plays long it is difficult to attack and when I had my chance my tactic was aggressive and when I have to defend I defend and when I can play aggressive I did and I don't have the feeling that I play short and 5m behind the line but you have your opinion and mine. We can check on the TV.

Q: Also Djokovic said he though you did not play at your best. He said Nadal did not play extremely well?
NADAL: You think is was a bad final?

Q: No but I've …….
NADAL: I didn't consider myself that good I can do better.

Q: You played … you think last year you were too defensive, too far from the base line and this year closer?
NADAL: I am trying but against him its difficult for example in Montecarlo – my feeling is similar to Montecarlo I played but my serve did not work that well today. When you are not serving 100% perfect then you are in trouble because he returns hard. I am trying to play more aggressive and I am touching better the ball and my forehand is more painful(?) that last year and that is why I am able to go more to the side. Last year I tried to hit short but not enough good and this year it is good and I am happy and ……. that I won in Rome without losing a set but here is the best players in the world like Berdych and Ferrer and Djokovic and so I am happy and the most important thing is not to win against that player but to win the most important title of the year for me and this why I am happy now and the important things is to ….

An interview with: Novak Djokovic

Q: If you compare last year and this year….
Djokovic I am not comparing last year and this one.

Q: NO, just in the way you are both playing. What are the main differences
Djokovic I cant say – he is always the favourite even if I win against him 7 times – he is the best player in the world on this surface and the two wins I had gave me confidence and I think that the match today was quite close …even if he won in straight sets. If you don’t use the opportunities against Rafa he gets momentum. I made unforced errors and I don’t think he played extremely well – I made a lot of errors which should not happen when you play against Nadal and ….. I will go to Paris with confidence and I played a great week.

Q: Sorry to say but will it be crucial to block ……
Djokovic The facts are there. I cannot say it is not present and its there and a possibility to win 4 Grand Slams in a row and I am going and preparing for a Grand Slam as I prepare for any other big event with more focus and its 2 weeks long and the most important tournament and we always wast to deliver out best game and we are good – I feel good on the court and I need to make a few adjustment before Paris but I'll be in top form

Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 7-5 6-3 to regain the Rome Masters title.

The Spaniard was at his destructive best to win again a title that he won 5 times before and to also claim back to the world number 2 in the rankings.

Both players came out firing at the Foro Italico. Nadal went immediately on the attack, earning two break points in Nole´s opening service game but the Serb showed great defenses to dig out of trouble.

In the 5th game Rafa broke to moved ahead but he immediately handed the service break back with a lackluster game culminating in a forehand error.

The Serb showed amazing tennis to break twice to win the first set.

He dominated the baseline rallies and constantly forced Federer on to the back foot and an errant forehand handed him the break for 4-3 in the second.

But the Swiss was not done and became more aggressive. He began to vary his game and saved a match point at 5-4 to then break back and tied the set at 5-5.

Rafael Nadal Rome Semifinal Interview | Saturday, 19 May, 2012

An interview with: Rafael Nadal

Q: Well, congratulations on your win. You are playing very well. What was the difference between the 1st and the 2nd set.
NADAL: The first set was unbelievable how David set the match with amazing rhythm and aggressive and long. His movements were unbelievably good and so I did the best possible best for me to be 3 3 so on ... the thing that I tried to do was to maintain the score close and when he plays at the beginning of the match I tried to concentrate on the serve to contain the score equal – after first 7 games of the match the game is more equal – before it was not.

Q: David played aggressive in Barcelona. Did he play more aggressively here today than there?
NADAL: Yes – I think that the quality of tennis in the first set of the game was higher today than in Barcelona and that was my feeling and I had the fantastic match yesterday and so I didn't play well it was because I couldn't. His shot was good and aggressive and I did not have time to hit a ball with normal conditions and all the balls that he sent were very aggressive and very difficult.

Q: Can you tell us the satisfaction of being in the final here in Rome?
NADAL: Best thing possible after a fantastic time in Barcelona and Montecarlo, to keep playing in clay tournament and then in the final without losing a set is something fantastic and I am happy. To play and win 2 tournaments and play it the final of this tournament. Tomorrow is difficult and important match and an important match ….. but if I don’t have rhythm tomorrow ….. We can forget the the tournament of Madrid – that wasn’t clay. My feeling are fantastic all the time. Rome for me is a important tournament and I am here for the 7th time and I cannot imagine this a few years ago. I am satisfied mentally the first set but I was focused and I was there and trying to wait the moment and in the second .. he was a little tired.

David Ferrer Rome Interview | Saturday, 19 May, 2012

An interview with: David Ferrer

Q: David – What on earth do you have to beat Rafa?
FERRER: I don't know. In the first set is was close and then when I lost the first game and my serve then it was more difficult to do wins and he played better.

Q: You have had a great run on the clay season. What do you do to keep positive?
FERRER: So far good. I played a semi-final and this is a good result and the season on clay is good and now I have some days to rest and do my best in Roland Garros.

Q: Have you regrets some parts of the 1stset?
FERRER: It was close and the first set but the tennis is this. I won I think 3 matches and today I can't win the tiebreak but to beat Rafael I need to..

Rafael Nadal defeated David Ferrer 7-6 6-0 to advance into the 2012 Rome Masters final.

Rafa will face the winner of the other semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

Ferrer was beaten by his countryman in Rome for the third time as Nadal polished his career record here to 35-2.

The first four games took 33 minutes which was longer than Federer's winning first set against Andreas Seppi. The second game took up half of that time as Nadal fought off seven break points to finally hold for 2-1.

Ferrer double-faulted away a service game to trail 3-2 as his rival started to get a grip on the match.

Nadal won the 84-minute marathon in a tiebreaker and then began to sprint in the second set to take a 3-0 lead. Ferrer saved five break points in the fourth game before falling to defeat.
