The Battle of Surfaces

14.04.2007 | Off Court

May 2nd, "The Battle of Surfaces", a unique event in tennis history, will take place at the Palma Arena in Majorca. Roger and Rafael Nadal, the two best tennis players in the world, will meet on a tennis court that is half grass and half clay.

 

Roger said: "We are both looking forward to this absolutely new event. The idea really appeals to me as we each dominate one of the surfaces. Rafa holds the record of 62 victories in series on clay and I have not been defeated on grass since 48 matches. It'll be fun to find out what it's like to play on a court with mixed surfaces! And it ought to be interesting to see who chooses the better tactic.

People have been talking about this event for quite a while. Now it's coming up pretty soon already and I like the fact that the stadium - which is very nice, by the way - is located on Majorca, Rafa's home. He has been to Basel, after all, and now I've got the opportunity to play at his place for once.

Question for anyone who knows?
In the Battle of the Surfaces, will they change sides after on odd games as in a normal match or will Roger play the entire match on the Grass Side and Nadal on the Clay Side??????

Roger

Please take care and remember this is for fun, so enjoy the match. Please take care, I would hate for you to miss matches due to injuries.

I really want you to win the Grand Slam, as I know you can do it and you are so deserving.

Good luck
