    No. Nadal news is 4 women chatting constantly and a few arguments that keep going for pages.

    That is the new BLXt 93. Wow, we'll see if he uses it in matches or is still playtesting it.

  13. This only shows that the majority of the Nadal fans are insecure women without men or highschool kids with to much time on their hands

    That's a joke. There is no BLX 93 and Federer is not playtesting it, especially the day before the biggest tournament of the year.

    Oh come on now, don't make this thread look bad by filling it up with nonsense drivel about Nadal fans. There are a lot of us that post in that thread and it contains PLENTY of news/interviews/pics of Rafa. We don't have to scour the internet for hours either, there are several Rafa sites that collect these articles and we share them here. Mostly so we can discuss them. Sure there is random gossip and stuff in there, we do like to use it to socialize sometimes, but it's rarely completely off topic. Better than having a thread for each Nadal article, no?

    I love that pic! Federer for me has been the symbol of the Wimbledon champion ever since the Great Pistol Pete left.

    That photo is just iconic. Federer in supreme mode on a grass court.

    The amount of electricity that Federer generates in his matches is incredible. I was there for his fourth round match, and people were just going crazy!!!! Watching him play is a true privlege, the most gifted and naturally talented player I've ever seen.

    Time to take back the Wimbledon crown! :)

    A good friend of mine was GOATing in London during the first week of Wimby and witnessed the GOAT and his family eating dinner at some famed restaraunt.

    He said Rogi's manners were GOATworthy: offering to clear the table, get water for guests and quietly GOATing Mirka, holding and caressing her bosoms with only his eyes.

    This chance encounter he proclaims was in stark contrast to when he saw Nadal dine in Madrid at Cisco's, a Mexicali restaraunt known for its $5 burritos after 5PM. He said Nadal ate without napkins and with his mouth full.

    I think I believe Borg when he says Rogi is the GOAT.

    Great!

    Seems like everyone in the top 4 digs some Foot-tenis just after practice.

    It's really great and it's a good exercise, also goes to show that true athletes can play well all the sports.

    Hoping for Fed to do well on the Davis tie, and who knows, maybe go all the way in the event.
    It would be great if Fed could go through the same process Djokovic went with his Davis Cup win. Maybe a win there could fire up something inside him too...

    Wow! Expect a Djoko like resurgence from Fed after DC.

    Being in a team with all the camaraderie will do Fed tons of good.

    Won't be surprised if he came roaring back in the USO and crushed everyone..

    Roger = pure class.

    Roger Federer Launches Education Initiative In Malawi
    By James Waterson

    (July 12, 2011) Sixteen-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer launched a $3.3 million project on Tuesday that is meant to provide an education for 54,000 children in impoverished areas in Malawi in the next 10 years.

    “As the father of two little girls, I observe every day how incredibly fast children learn if their environment is a stimulating one,” Federer said in a statement to AFP. “It is a great privilege for me and my foundation to help give children in Malawi the chance to reach their full potential.”

    The initiative is a collaboration between the Roger Federer Foundation and Action Aid Malawi, a United Kingdom-based organization that works to provide food, shelter, work and basic healthcare to those in impoverished areas.

    Federer’s project aims to build 80 community-based child care centers in six of the country’s 28 districts. According to the Roger Federer Foundation’s website, 800 early childhood educators will be trained to encourage, nourish and educate their students.

    The centers will have classrooms, educational supplies, play areas and a nutritious meal will be provided to each child once a day, Martha Khonje, country director of Action Aid, said.

    Malawi is one of Africa’s poorest and least developed countries. More than half of its more than 15 million people live below the poverty line, and 80 percent of its population lives in rural areas with little access to education, according to the www.cia.gov.

    "In a country where nearly half of all children under five are chronically malnourished and over three million children under eight are out of school, the initiative could not have come soon enough," Khonje said to the AFP.

    This initiative is nothing new for the Federer Foundation, which has worked to provide educational and athletic opportunities for Zimbabwe, South Africa, Tanzania and Switzerland since 2003.
