Updated: Rafa and Nole to play doubles in Toronto?? YES!

Posted by Lana On 8/05/2010 04:15:00 PM

Jan. 16, 2010 - SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA - epa01991642 Serbian Novak Djokovic (L) and Rafael Nadal talks ground during a charity tennis exhibition match in Melbourne, Australia, 17 January 2010. The match was organised by world number one men's player Roger Federe to raise money for victims of the Haiti earthquake.


According to Spanish Marka.com, Rafa and Nole will team up for doubles at the Rogers Cup in Toronto that starts next week!

Here is the translation via Google Translate:

"Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic evenly discipline's doubles 1000 Canadian Masters to be held from next Monday in Toronto. It will be the second time in the modern era of this sport that the numbers 1 and 2 form as individual ranking pair in the double box. Before only did Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe in 1976 and has come a long way since then.

After two and a half weeks of hard training at the Center for Modernization of Manacor, Nadal is traveling today to Canadian soil inseparable with his physiotherapist, Rafael Maymo, and with Francis Roig, who shall have as a coach both in Canada and Cincinnati (Toni Nadal join the group at the U.S. Open). After a month out of competition, the idea of Balearic pace of play is to take as soon as possible in the face to win the final major of the year. Since he won his sixth Wimbledon, Rafa has enjoyed a short holiday which combines with a treatment for his knees on the basis of infiltration of plasma. The results appear to be positive and the Spaniard is ready to face the last third of the season that will end the tour of Asia (Bangkok, Tokyo, Shanghai) to finish in Europe (Paris and London).

Nadal and Djokovic are two players who are left to see much playing doubles, discipline in which Rafa has five titles for only one of Nole. And they never played together. However, he proposed in London Serbian Rafa play together in Canada and he accepted. However, it is a tournament that brings good memories, because they have already conquered the individual level (the Spanish in 2005 and 2008, Serbia in 2007). It may be recalled that last year Nadal played this tournament with their coach Francis Roig couple, so it was not the first experiment in these parts.

Although Rafa still has 2470 points to defend until the end of the season, the goal of ending the year at the helm of the world rankings seem an easy task. Thus, among the challenges are to conquer the U.S. Open, the only Grand Slam that is missing, and win the Masters Cup in London, both events in which her best result has been the semifinals. "

If this is truth, then I think I will not sleep at all while the tournament lasts! My two favorite players playing doubles, something it's worth watching definitely!! I can't wait!

UPDATED: It's confirmed on Rogers Cup Facebook page by tournament director Karl Hale, they WILL play together!! :)))
