We had a nice dinner at a place with excellent meat. It is funny since I normally don’t eat meat the day before a match. I try to eat something lighter. But tomorrow I am playing at night so it is OK if I would play at 3 or something like that I would not have eaten it. I will go to the site at 4 to warm up around 5.30 and be ready for the match at 7.30. So plenty of time to get that meat well in my body.
I’m also not making a joke about that last sentence…
Times Online Q&A is up as well.
What do you think of Djokovic’s retirement? How do you train yourself to play in the extreme heat of Australia? Miho, San Francisco
RN: I don’t know well what happened. I didn’t see all the match and haven’t been able to speak to him so I prefer not to comment. It is tough though to see a player retire and it is obvious it was very hot today. Too bad but I am sure he had good reasons.
Tommy Haas seemed to have some success at the net against you, do you think the serve and volley game could ever make a return? Michelle Slater, UK
RN: I don’t know. It is tough since the players are fast and good returners.
Are you looking forward to playing under the new roof at Wimbledon? Val UK
RN: Yes sure. I hope it helps avoid situations like 2 years ago. It is definitely a step forward.
I read somewhere that you like to cook. What is your favourite food? Nicole, Singapore
RN: I love fish and seafood. I actually only cook during the weeks at Wimbledon.
