Old school commentary with baby Nadal

  1. Interesting old school commentary with baby nadal playing, Look at how bad he was....Errors and backhands into the net by Nadal....Hes missing his forehnad....We are so used to nadal never missing it's kind of shocking that he was once a shaky and inconsistent!! Commentators think there is a lack of respect to players aftr winning a match...Any opinions on this?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5eEo_km08s

    It's strange seeing this rafa I was surprised at some of the shots he was missing seeing as now he hardly ever misses shots like that but he was young and developing and done pretty well to get to the third round at 16 (i think)

    HOLY ****, SHUT UP! I thought American commentators didn't know when to shut it. I had to turn it off after a minute because they just kept talking nonsense even through the points.

    It looks like crappy grass to me. I played on grass about a year ago and every bounce was different. Impossible to be consistent.

    Even at 16, Nadal was already making mincemeat of Costa and Moya.
