Anyway, fans to Nadal are merely part of the job. They are an obligation lest he get labeled an a-hole. He could not care less about them, and if he could ditch them altogether he would do it, stat.
Gee, you don't know any of that. Pure speculation.
Being asked more often to sign autographs would definitely make it a more automatic activity, yes. Plus, he might well be more shy.
Plus I have seen pics of him smiling when signing autographs.
EDIT: For that matter, how about the fact he smiled and even hugged that fan who jumped onto the court and kissed him and hugged him in (I believe) the USO (2009?)?.
