True. What makes it unique is the insane spin and the weight of the shot, especially if you see it live, up close in a practice session. TV doesn't capture it as well.His forehand is such a lethal weapon, versatile AND aesthetically pleasing. I still don't know which termination I like best, across the chest or overhead. It's Godly.
Just for you my friend.True. What makes it unique is the insane spin and the weight of the shot, especially if you see it live, up close in a practice session. TV doesn't capture it as well.
My personal favorite is the Nadal inside-out forehand. When he's playing well, the timing and disguise of the off-forehand make it impossible to defend against.
I got the see him at the Open in 2016 & 2017. I just bought grounds passes for the days that I was there, which was Labor Day weekend. I was only able to see him on the practice courts, but it was still awesome. The practice court area is a free for all, so you can watch whoever is out there. I would recommend you get tickets for early in the week, that way you can see all the players from the start before anyone loses.Guys, I think I’m going to risk it and buy tickets for the USO in hopes that I can see Rafa play and practice. I’d like to go for his first round match.
Anyone with experience could tell me what days I should buy tickets for?
How do I get to see him practice?
Any info is greatly appreciated.
Rafa’s new seafront home in Porto Cristo continues to take shape:Rafa's New House
Rafa’s new seafront home for his growing family is taking shape. It seems to be completed in time.
Screenshot of a tourism video filmed this week
His new home is situated across the bay from his parents' house, where he has mainly lived since his teens.
True.. also the courts are too fast at Cincinnati.. The conditions not really favorable for his game nor for getting match practice.Honestly it would have been much worse if he strained it playing matches daily over the next few days. I think with all of his experience, he doesn't really need a lot of matches before the US Open.
I don’t think Rafa will waste time travelling back and forth. I think, he’ll use the pre-USO time to practice. Besides, he is going to participate in the fundraising exhibition event titled “Tennis Plays for Peace Exhibition” in New York on Aug. 24 (post #36,129):Is Rafa staying in the States for the next 8-9 days or going back to spain?
