    That "sorry for today" one. It's like he feels embarrassed when he beats someone, even at the net. He looks a little sheepish.

    My vote is for one of his US Open pressers last year when he said "it's no question, Wimbledon is much faster than here. Everyone says its slow, maybe because I won there.... twice"

    On why he plays as Federer in tennis video games rather than as himself.

    (sorry it was from a video of an oncourt interview, I am paraphrasing)

    "I don't know.. according to video game I am defensive guy, no?. Stand 10 feet behind, it is impossible to hit a winner."

    You serious?

    I can hardly win any match on v hard with Murray for some reason but with Rafa I do ok.

    Djoker's nearly impossible he gets everything.

    (Me too vote for that. It's such an IN YOUR FACE F***ERS type of quote, yet somehow not even close to sounding arrogant/rude. Rafa genius of classiness)

    His shots don't have enough power at all and his volleys SUCK, he's fast but that's it IMO. I like to be Becker and Djokovic.

    "Yeah he was a great fan, he say "I love you and he kiss me.""
    "Was he speaking in spanish?"
    "No, in English but I understand that..."

    I like the one in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwfY-knTwS0&NR=1

    It was some years ago and Rafa's english was very limited. The journalist tries to make him look foolish, but Rafa has the last laugh and it is the journalist who ends up with egg on his face.

    How do you go with the timing of the shots? Getting good/perfect took me ages to master.

    As a side note, I can't believe the creators didn't give Nadal the topspin mastery trait, my created player has it and its pretty useful.
