Sports Oct 02,2015 09:39

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal arrived in Bangkok Thursday morning for their exhibition match on Friday. Current and former world No 1 Djokovic and Nadal were impressed by Thai hospitalities. Their friendly showdown is dubbed "Back to Thailand Nadal vs Djokovic". Both tennis aces have been to Thailand before. Strange but true, both are two of the world greatest players but both of them never won in the Thailand tournament. In 2008, Djokovic lost the final of Thailand Open to Jo Wilfred Tsonga. Nadal's best run was 2010 where he was beaten by countryman Guillermo Garcia Lopez in the semi. The two held a press conference in the afternoon and went shopping for Thai crafts at a leading shopping mall. They promised to put a great show at Hua Mark stadium in Bangkok at 8.30pm. "We will try our best to put the right show," said Nadal. Nadal appeared very fit. He went to have a practice session at the venue before the press conference. Novak also had a training with Thai national players yesterday evening. Tickets of the match were sold out within a few days after the sale started early last month. ...........................................................................................................
