    I apologize if this video has been posted here already:

    http://www.30love.net/#openVideo?MmFlYzYzMzctOGIzMC00NmVlLTkzMjUtNDhhZGZiMzdiZTU5

    I made a quick search to check and only found this old thread from that time:

    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=28215

    It's been 4 years long since this match.

    I don't mean anything by posting this. Just bumped into it from a link in a Spanish newspaper article and thought some people here might find it interesting, in this hard week of live tennis withdrawal, when we know some nice pro matches are being played in Miami and we can't watch them.

    You instigator, you. :roll: :lol: It's been up for at least a year on YouTube.

    Clearly Rafa frustrated the **** out of Roger -- in 2005 I'd bet it really was a novel thing for him having to deal with someone who got everything back -- but if you remember, Roger did come from love sets down to win that Miami match.

    (And I'm a feDal fan -- it takes two great players to have a great match -- so you know "I don't mean anything by posting this". :D)

    There's supposed to be coverage today, so you can stop instigating now. :D
    Rafa plays during prime time USA/East Coast (if you're in Spain and want to see the match, it might be a bit of a late night). Enjoy the tournament.

    Here it is:

    http://www.elmundo.es/elmundodeporte/2009/03/27/tenis/1238173335.html

    It is entitled "Motivation and solutions against Nadal" but it doesn't say anything really interesting, some generic Nadal flattery and some generic comments about his immediate rivals.

    There's however a funny bit about Fed planning to stay on tour for a while because he and Mirka want their kid to watch him play as a pro. I think it is cute. Although, on the other hand, dad won't be probably in his best shape by then. But once a legend always a legend, he will surely be able to spank some young punks on skill and guile alone.

    Sure, you get the cookie. Obviously I didn't see your post before, otherwise I wouldn't have posted this, why would have I? I bumped into the video from another source, made a quick search with the keywords "Federer throws racquet", nothing recent came up and I posted. Mods feel free to merge or delete this one with my blessing.
