Eighty-three media representatives and 15 TV channels have attended the first official press conference of Rafa Nadal at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell after he lost the Monte Carlo final against Serbia?s World No. 1 Novak Djokovic yesterday.

In a packed press conference room, Rafa talked about his positive feeling and made clear that although he did not win the ATP Master 1000 event in Monte Carlo for the ninth consecutive time, "nothing changed. "

"I have lost a final, " the Spaniard said, "and that?s it. Moreover, I have lost against the best player in the world. " Nadal is satisfied with his performance in Monte Carlo and said that neither he nor his team could have imagined the great results he is achieving after his comeback.

"When you make it to the final in Monte Carlo you cannot think that you had a bad week. Now I?m in Barcelona and I want to enjoy it. I love playing here, " said Nadal, adding that he is neither sad nor angry about losing the final.

Nadal mentioned that he had a good chance to win the second set to stay alive in the game, but accepted that "Nole played a lot better in the first set, although the 5-0 in the beginning was excessive, " added the World No. 5, who is second-seeded in Barcelona.

Although fellow Spaniard David Ferrer is top seeded, Nadal said that "talking about favorites now doesn?t take us anywhere. "

Nadal said that both Carlos Berlocq and Daniel Gimeno-Traver, possible rivals in his debut on Wednesday, are good players on clay.
