He certainly does seem suffer from OCD. I feel sorry for him really because his life must be misery. David Beckham though is just as bad. In an interview he gave to ITV last summer he admitted it, saying -
"I've got this obsessive compulsive disorder where I have to have everything in a straight line or everything has to be in pairs. I'll put my Pepsi cans in the fridge and if there's one too many then I'll put it in another cupboard somewhere. I'll go into a hotel room and before I can relax, I have to move all the leaflets and all the books and put them in a drawer. Everything has to be perfect."
I have to be honest, I have a slight OCD streak. I must drive my carers mad when they change my bedding, because when they make it it has to be done properly, everything lining up right, that sort of thing. I just can't sleep in an untidy bed lol.
That said, with Nadal it all come across as a bit too much. It really does seem to be a coping mechanism, a way of dealing with anxiety I suppose. I must admit that sometimes I think Rafa comes across as a child stuck in a man's body.
