I really wanted so bad for Rafael Nadal to win yesterday's semifinal match against Novak Djokovic but it just wasn't meant to be.
Djokovic played perfectly to overpower Nadal 6-2, 6-3 to reach the Paris Masters final :(
Now let's just talk about some Nadal's off court news which I have missed last week.
Earlier this week, Nadal was honoured and presented the prestigious Serge Kampf Award from the French Academy of Sports, for his exceptional results in 2008.
His girlfriend Maria Francisca "Xisca" Perello was in Paris and attended the award presentation.
The lovely couple was also spotted enjoying romantic stroll in Paris after dining at 'Cafe de La Paix'.
The paparazzi also caught them on camera on another unidentified occassion in Paris.
