    Way too hard to understand and the captions are blury.What I did hear Rafa say a couple of times is ( I have not said anything ).It seems by the comments under the video that Rafa is being accused of saying a racist comment towards the Argentinian player.

    apparently it went something like this:

    Gaudio " yeah, don't get cocky now."
    Rafa: "I didn't do anything."
    Gaudio said something else and Rafa replied with a word used to call Argentinians.

    Let's see if i can find the right translation somewhere, if nobody else can find it.

    actually it's never been clear. the beginning does start with Gaudio telling Rafael not to make faces and not to get cocky, and Nadal replies that he didn't do anything. Gaudio says i will kick the s&^t outta of you or something then Nadal replies "callate, sudaca gil" which is a racist insult for South Americans. But not sure if he really said that. At that point Nadal was just starting out and the Spanish and Argentinians did mix a lot. Apparently there were some conflicts. Some of those faces are gone today though.:-?
    sorry if it wasn't much help.

    As I said then, just a TV journalist with some manipulative BS.
