    Incredibly nice. I wonder had it not rained that night at Wimby 2008, if Rafa would have crumbled under the pressure and lost?

    Also crazy about AO'09 that he didn't want to play the final but he still played. Really funny that they kept chanting "yes we can" haha.

    Uncle Toni is such a wise man. Rafa is very lucky to have him. I think if he can push the limits it's all thanks to Toni.

    Also they say him and Xisca have been together since they were 14? So I guess it's true.

    Thanks for the link.

    so rafa plays roger in switzerland for fed's foundation, and roger plays rafa in madrid for nadal's foundation. Nice.
    And that interview was really great; kind of like the federer spirit of a champion ones. its nice to get an insight into what makes nadal such a great athlete, and also his unbelievable fighting spirit. and toni always seems very blunt; "Federer's level has obviously declined. There is no longevity to the current Federer." its refreshing to see what these guys honestly think of each other, like nadal also saying he thought federer was terrible in doha.

    How will Federer/Nadal approach these exhibition matches? Do they make sure each player has a win or are they playing to win?

    Finally made time to read the whole translation. It's causing havoc on my ovaries. I love him more and yet loathe him even more at the same time.

    LOL babbette!

    It would be really dumb if it's not competitive. I mean the reson it's so exciting to watch them play is the competition, if they are just knocking balls around, it's fun, but not in the spirit of why their rivalry is so great.

    Be sure that Roger will bring his tweener along. Hopefully, Rafa will make it easy for the old man, of course he will, otherwise they won't sell tickets / raise money in future.

    Then talk biatch! :mrgreen: Mary Franscica is so formal. Hard to picture Rafa always calling her by two names. His mother and sister are called maria too, maybe he just calls them all Mary...wow another level of perfection. He's done it again!!! :p I can't take it anymore. I quit Rafa!

    Are you sure? Maybe she has 4 fingers.:oops: His mum always looks mega tired. I hope she's not too stressed :(

    Lol, I'm sure. Her pinky is hidden. I'll be insanely shocked if Rafa proposed to her. he seems like the kinda guy that would prolly freak out at the thought of family and stuff at this point in his life. Like most 24 year old men =D

    I actually wouldn't you know. Since they've been together for so long and she's practically part of his family I wouldn't surprised if he gave her something like a promise ring at least.

    I suppose! I can only imagine how awesomness her ring will be :shock: Mirka's is ridiculous <3

    From their down to earth dress sense and not-so rich circle of friends (i'm assuming from their normal friends) maybe they'd be embarrassed to walk around with ridiculous diamonds on their fingers. Who knows, of course I could be wrong.

    It's ok. :lol:
    Maybe she doesn't smile too much because she doesn't feel comfortable in front of the cameras.

    That's a pretty good point, i think even if he got her one, we might never see it, cuz she wouldn't wear it around. Then again, Rafa has no qualms about walking around were a $500,000 watch!

    This is one of the best documentaries ever. I'm very grateful that some people translated it. You really feel how much he fights and what he went through at some moments. :)

    I didn't say it had to do with what you think. I said many others want to believe that because I've seen it on this board so many times. It was Uncle Toni who said they were wealthy. I've read it in many articles since Rafa first came on tour. I don't know who your sources are, but I've never ever heard that they were middle class.

    I'm more the Rafa/Xisca type. I need a lot of time for myself. I have so many different interests. Being with someone 24/7 would drive me crazy.

    I agree. That's what makes men so interesting. They have their own life and make no apologies about it. I realized that a long time ago, and followed suit. It works for me, and it actually keeps men more interested. They love it when you appreciate them, but don't necessarily cling to them. It's like having the best of both worlds. You can be with them when you want to, and you can take a bunch of time to yourself. It's all good.

    absolutely true (unless that someone was my dog ;), now no more!).

    Poor Xisca, Rafa is so tall, she needs platform shoes to come up to his shoulder :D

    I wonder is they are going to decide beforehand who wins and who loses in the exhibition matches. that's kind of silly. Then again not because Rafa will spanky Fed and ppl in Zurich might not like that! :oops:

    I'm still pretty bummed that it won't be competitive.

    The words poor and Xisca just don't go together. She's one lucky homosapian.

    I just realized her jacket and t shirt are the ones she wore at the Wimbledon. And there I was thinking she was making progress with changing clothes. His mum has worn that outfit a lot too.

    LOL!! OMG bab, it's like u steal the thoughts right out my head!! When I saw her pics before, the first thing I thought was isn't this the same jacket she wore in wimbly? I tried to find a pic where I could identify the buttons, but couldn't! But yes, it is the same jacket! As since we are being shallow, I might as well go all the way and say the tan pants also she wore at Wimbly, with the flowy white shirt(that she wore twice during the tournament) and tan belt. The shoes of course haven't changed since the pic vernonbc posted!

    And yes, there certainly is nothing "poor" about Xisca =D
