I know, imagine the umpire in Buenos Aires saying "Ventaja Boluda".

LOL. Boluda will have to request the umpire to make calls using his first name. Imagine the telecaster saying "Boluda falló por un pelo".

Very difficult to translate, but more or less goes like this: huge-balls. Imagine the umpire saying "Advantage huge-balls."

He stands 10 feet behind the baseline on a hardcourt. He is the next Nadal.

Well, according to Nadal he is. Here is an excerpt of the Telegraph newspaper:

"Boluda, who has never lost against one of his peers in competition, will now only be playing against older opponents and in fact in his last event, a Spanish national tournament, he eventually lost to a 30-year-old.

"It's going to be very important the next two or three years," Nadal said. "But he has a big chance to be a very, very good player because when you are young and the best in the world it's easier afterwards. I was one of the best but when I was 14 I don't have any control.

"When I saw him he had total control of the ball. He can do everything - maybe he's better than me. When I was 14 I can improve a lot of things, but I think he can also improve a lot of things, except [for him] it's just [a matter of] perfecting things."

In terms of playing style Boluda is more like Federer than Nadal with a similarly withering forehand, but in personality he is every bit as quiet and unassuming as Nadal was when he burst on to the scene as a 16-year-old physical phenomenon exactly this time four years ago in Monte Carlo."

As far as neurotic behavior goes in young Spanish tennis players, I say it's better to have an uncontrollable eye tic than a butt pick... :D

Vamos Big Balls!

At least this kid shows more promise than Donald Young. Boluda. Ha! Maybe when he walks out on to the court they should play AC/DC's 'Big Balls' "I've got big balls"
