Despite his loss to Novak Djokovic in the Madrid final, Rafael Nadal sounds very optimistic about his chances his week in Rome and at the French Open.
Nadal had his 37-match clay win streak snapped by the Serb on Sunday in Madrid. Nadal says he wasn’t happy with how he played that match and that the altitude wasn’t a help. He says the conditions are better in Rome.
Rafa opens his bid for a sixth title at the Foro Italico with a tough match possibly against against Madrid semifinalist Thomaz Bellucci tomorrow.
Nadal is also in danger of losing his No. 1 ranking to Djokovic if things break right.
