    he was so physically developed at 16. His voice sounds a bit higher, but his legs look pretty similar to now, besides being a bit smaller. i wonder how tall he was then?

    Weird that he says that he likes the most to play on grass and indoor and that he doesn't like clay that much and that he wants to win wimbledon.

    I first saw Nadal play at 2003 Monte Carlo as a 16 year old. He beat the reigning French Open champion, Albert Costa, and then lost to Guillermo Coria. Nadal then beat Carlos Moya, a former French Open champion and world number 1, at 2003 Hamburg.

    Richard Gasquet used to be all the hype at that time too. He didnt turn out as well, but still a good player, I love watching gasquet play
