The intensity at a tie for the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas is pretty high and when it’s a final like in Seville with Spain against Argentina, the level is even higher. It’s not like any other event on the circuit because it is nation versus nation so there is even more attention on the players as they are pulled here and there. There are masses of media around and with people running everywhere, there is, let’s just say, a bit of organised chaos. I managed to grab Rafael Nadal for a couple of minutes just before a practice session but someone switched off a light as we started to talk and then someone else switched one on. Thanks! And as Rafa was desperate to get on and practice I couldn’t quite say “sorry mate, we have to start again”. At these moments you just live with what you have, that’s just part of life on the tour.
