    Save this photo. You must submit this photo to the Vatican as proof upon Rafa's passing.

    P.S. for all the nonbelievers: see the shining aura around Rafa!!

    this means he even personally washes his 5th crappy Kia car he got for free.
    Federer will NEVER do that!

    Actually no you are completely wrong.

    That is his car.
    He is has a multimillion dollar sponsorship with Kia.
    As such they give him free Kia vehicles to drive around.
    Product placement is an important part of product advertisement (eg Evian water bottles at ALL ATP/WTA wimbledon 2012 interviews)
    Social media sites like Facebook/Twitter are an advertising medium for product placement.
    Rafa is doing his part by having product placement in his photos. Here he is caringly washing his Kia, showing appreciation and care for his car.
    Desired effect - If a huge star like Rafa likes his Kia it must be a good car, boy o boy i want my next car to maybe be Kia cuz its a good car like Rafa knows it is.
    Rafa has been hawking* sponsors services and good in his recovery period (eg pokerstars)

    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/hawk_3
    *hawking - to sell goods informally in public places
    On every street corner there were traders hawking their wares

    Don't worry - Federer hawks his sponsors too.

    Clearly the overspray will hit the car next to his. Very insensitive of Rafa.

    Why are you praising a guy for washing his car?

    No, the insane topspin will bring it down in time. He can do that all day until you cry with boredom.

    He actually cannot afford even that Kia. He lost all his money playing online poker. Someone with such severe OCD should not sponsor an online gambling site. He played 36 straight hours and believing he was going to draw Aces over Kings on the next hand. The Aces never arrived and he lost every penny. Now, he is working at the car wash.

    He must idolize Sampras for being thrifty. Haha, even I do not wash my own car. Just go to a $ 4-5 carwash station. Easy.

    Haha, I guess I'm just lazy. :)

    It comes naturally to mexicans/Spaniards. They are very familiar with the waterhose aka "drinking fountain."

    Nadal does not drive a Kia. He drives an Aston Martin or a Ferrari. This is just shameless plugging of one of his sponsorships and nothing more.

    WTFs are going to be sponsored by KIA, but there is no chance of him ever winning one.

    So what you're saying is, one of Rafa's rituals is possibly having a negative impact on someone else? ;):)

    This thread is rife with bilious hate, shameless Nadal trolling, cheap jokes and stabs at Rafa's truly humble nature. You should all be ashamed.

    Long live Federer Warehouse!

    Federer is a pr1ck, as we saw in that 2009 Wimbledon final, and 2009 Australian Open final. So, I should hope Rafa does nothing that Federer would do. Rafa and Federer are 100% opposite in every way.
