Time to Play in the Clay!

(Rafa's getting ready!)

It's almost time for The European Clay Court Tennis Season! As you can see from the pic above, Rafa is back in training. Coming up first is Monte Carlo and then Barcelona! I'm a little nervous about Monte Carlo. Rafa has one this tournament for the past 7 years, and its usually the one that gives a boost to his mojo for the season, but this year Stupidface Novak Djokovic is coming to town! Boooo! I don't want him ruining Rafa's winning streak at MC! Sure, Monte Carlo is now Novak's adoptive home town, and he wants to play there, but he should stay out of Rafa's key stomping ground. No respect! You don't see Rafa jumping all over the Serbian Open. Novak is trying to crush Our Hero's spirit entirely! But I'm not counting Nadal out, no sir! Rafa can beat him there and maybe after that he'll start to believe he can beat him anywhere again. One win is all Rafa needs. I'm sure of it! He came so close in Melbourne. Man, next week is gonna be so stressful for me!  It's a tight Clay schedule this year for Rafa:

MONTE-CARLO ROLEX MASTERS / APR 15 - APR 22
BARCELONA OPEN BANC SABADELL / APR 23 - APR 29
MUTUA MADRID OPEN / MAY 5 - MAY 13
INTERNAZIONALI BNL D'ITALIA (ROME) / MAY 14 - MAY 20
ROLAND GAROS - FRENCH OPEN!!! / MAY 28 - JUN 10

So you can see there's a lot of time for Rafa to playing in the dirt. I hope that knee holds up! VAMOS!

P.S. Who is the best at making a wordless appearance in a tv commercial? You know who!!
