Letterman will probably have him hitting tennis balls at taxicabs.
Disaster in the making.
Awesome! I can't wait to see this.
Are you sure? I don't see Nadal listed on any of the online TV guides.
I hope not, for Nadal's sake.
He really doesn't need this before the US Open, really....usually I'd be OK if he does this after winning a slam because, you know, pressure is off. If it was Federer or Djokovic I wouldn't mind, Federer is really good with these sorts off things, Djokovic is funny and keeps cool. Nadal is too fragile at the moment.
I really don't see what harm it could do to him.
I think it's great actually. Love his interviews .
Nah Rafa is hilarious in interviews and stuff. I know you think he doesn't speak any more english than a fortune cookie, but it's not like that at all.
Letterman will be all over him like last year!
Yes, Letterman thinks Nadal is the Babolat demo racket rep....
LoL maybe nadal is announcing a new line on leterman.
Yeah, Clarky's assessment of Rafa's English skills is a little bizarre
Rafa is always sweet and funny in his interviews. I'm sure he will do fine.
LOL after seeing how he's listed I'm definitely more inclined to tune in. It doesn't seem like it will be just a regular interview.
Can't imagine Nadal without the Aero Pro, I mean how many rec level players do you see at the club with that racket? Some of you guys that post here probably use it as well. Seems like Nadal does really well to sell that line. I can't imagine he's introducing a new line of rackets.
Wasn't Noel with Jay Leno or something a couple weeks back ?
He's doing some promotion for his book me think.
He will also autograph it at Barnes and Noble on 5th ave on Saturday.
Wish I was up there for that.
Ah can't you make the trip? I bet there's a train. North Carolina is not so far... By the way did you feel the earthquake where you are?
I wish I could but it's too far and I work too much.
Some friends say they did, I didn't feel anything at all. I saw vids though it looked crazy.
Seeing Rafa definitely sounds more fun than working.
You have to work on week-ends? That's a drag
It's not farfetched to say there will some kind of injury they will be talking about in the interview..............Ughh, the physical beast that Rafa is.
Not a stretch at all. :lol:
Oops....I thought you meant tonight.
He can't speak english during press conferences.. which is laid back. Now he will probably be nervous, it's gonna be a blast to see him... "I AM RAFA, YOU ARE DAVID, HELLO".
Nadal is the last person who can contribute to the show. It's gonna be lame.
Then don't watch it.
I will just to see how lame it is.
So you're gonna go?.
letterman is not funny at all. none of the late night guys are, except for colbert and stewart.
If I can. I have a family trip to Pennsylvania planned this week-end. But my daughter is sick and with Irene looming as well, we may cancel it. I will definitely go if I can.
Top Ten reasons why Rafa should be a guest on Letterman.
...if anyone feels up to it, search for "me tarzan you jane cartoon" on google images.
You'll be in for a pretty unpleasant, if predictable surprise... :|
Oops, quoted the wrong person
Wat last year?
Nadal's never been @ Letterman or the other big late nite talkshows, certainly not last year. He's only been to the daytime talkshows after he won a few slams (Regis, etc).
Well, I hope you can . What about the USO?.
№ 1 reason: beat up Ashton Kutcher (the other guest on that day)
Who will translate it into English!?
(answering Crisstti) The USO is too expensive ouch. My husband doesn't know long he's gonna stay employed
I would have gone to the qualif this week but my daughter has strep and needs TLC.
Oh well, I'll watch every match on TV. You can count on me for that
He even admits his English isn't really good enough to go on Letterman. I hope he doesn't stammer and stutter through it. I really do wish he were more fluent. It would help him a ton.
Poor Rafa, worrying about his english. I sympathize a lot, they speak so fast with a lot of puns. As a non native speaker and despite being more fluent than Rafa, I would be quite scared as well.
Sorry to hear about that. I'm sure you'll enjoy it nonetheless .
He's just being self-conscious about it... he will be fine. At most he'll have to ask for a question to be repeated, like he sometimes does.
Im joking about his English skills a lot...
Although i have to admit that i HAVE SEEN interviews with him and felt a bit sorry for him and finding myself sitting trying to help him with the word he is looking for.
Is it the Mallorcan accent that prevents him from speaking good English? Tommy Robredo speaks pretty good, Verdasco decent, Ferrer...well...not that good.
What surprises me is that Djokovic speaks so good English since he is Serbian and also lived a couple of years in Germany.
How come Scandinavian people speak such good English TMOP?
I guess our accent is very neutral, unlike for example the Dutch,German,French or Eastern Europe who i think are very "hard" accents?
And we also begin to study English in 4th grade (10 years old) and study it all the way up until you graduate Swedish high school at 19.
Me to. He is a human gaffe machine.
It is tonight, no?
What night is to-night? Anyone? Wednesday?
