Nadal coming to terms with rankings slide BARCELONA: This is normally the time of year when Rafa Nadal comes into his own, honing his formidable claycourt skills in preparation for Roland Garros and leaving a trail of brutalised opponents to pick themselves up off the red clay.Yet things have not gone to plan this season. While last year's injury woes seem to have passed, their legacy is a lack of form and a drop in confidence that have left him struggling for results.Since hitting the big time in 2005, when he won the first of his record nine French Open titles, Nadal has never entered the fifth month of a season with only one solitary title -- that too a low key tournament in Buenos Aires where the highest ranked opponent he faced was world number 59 Federico Delbonis.The Spaniard, who also owns eight Monte Carlo and eight Barcelona Open trophies, is now preparing to play at ...

Valencia boost Champions League hopes with Eibar win BARCELONA: A bullet header from Nicolas Otamendi put Valencia on course for a 3-1 victory over Eibar in La Liga on Sunday that boosted their hopes of claiming a Champions League place.Valencia had a poor April with two wins from six games but have now strengthened their grip on fourth place and have a three-point lead over Sevilla after they were beaten 3-2 by Real Madrid on Saturday.Valencia, who occupy the Champions League playoff spot, ...
