Showmatch in Manhattan

25.08.2006 | Off Court

Roger and Rafael Nadal played a friendly match on the streets of Manhattan Thursday to mark the upcoming US Open. They exchanged volleys on a court set up at 54th and Lexington in New York.


Hundreds of fans were on hand for the match designed to get people ready for next week's US Open. Both players say they love playing in the city. "It's a nice place, it's a nice sensation," said Nadal. "I'm very happy, and I want to say thank you very much to Nike for inviting me and Roger to play here. I'm very happy about that."


There was also a youth tennis clinic, and some lucky fans got to try and return a serve from the two tennis stars.

Hi Janell,

I did read your previous letter and thank you for this one too. Our Roger plays tomorrow and I believe he has a better draw this time until quarter finals. He sounded quite positive after his practice yesterday and to my surprise he was wear

Hi sadhana,

thanks for that web site.
If you can get someone to buy the book for you it's well worth it. It's got a really sweet picture of our one and only when he was about three playing tennis of course and some more up to date pictures enjoy.
