Rafael Nadal spoke to The Tennis Channel about his physical condition prior to the Paris Masters. The Manacor native said: "After the wedding it is time to be back on the tour. I am excited to be back to this amazing city and I will try to do something nice.
It took a while mentally and physically to recover from US Open, the final was very demanding but I recovered well, I am excited to be back and Bercy is a place that I know very well although I never won here" Asked if playing indoors than outdoors is better for his body, Nadal replied: "I do not really know.
I prefer to play outdoors but my game evolved and I am confident I can play well if I am healthy." The Serb Novak Djokovic said: "Paris is one of the most popular cities also for the tennis tour because it hosts one of the four Grand Slams and this has been one of the nine Masters 1000 events, the best players in the world are taking part to this tournament and some players are pulling out with injuries.
It builds a lot of anticipation because there are many players contending the final spots for London. That's what makes this event more important. The crowd is very well educated to this sport, they watch tennis also through Roland Garros. It's a very good atmosphere to be in and that's why I enjoy this event."
