The current French Open tournament really misses you, Rafa. Wish you a happy birthday and a speedy recovery from your wrist injury. Stay strong!
Tsonga's out of the top 10 after RG. Only 4 of the top 10 are 30 and above.Nadal now joins fellow top tenners Federer, Wawrinka, Tsonga and Berdych in having completed his 3rd decade on Earth. That's now fully half the present top 10!
The Old Guard marches on (for now)!
I think, Rafa's second autobiography will be written. Rafa keeps in regular contact with John Carlin, who collaborated with Rafa on the first autobiography.Read it, very good book. Just feel he wrote his book way too early, so much more happened after that book came out.
Another needs to be written imo.
I still picture him in his pirate pants, armless vest, long dark hair and bandanna. He looked like an Apache warrior, so different from other tennis players!Remember him in Rome '06 final like it was yesterday; he was still only 19 back then....wow how time flies...
U lost me on the divorce part ???? Ooo not his own, gotchaHappy birthday Rafa.
Sad to see he starts his 30s being injured...story of his life.
If there was a paperback book on Rafa, it would be called - Injuries, divorce and grand slams, the true story of Rafael Nadal.
