Haha really like that Rafa video! Thanks Coldmarek. Smile

Yeah, it was sweet!  I'd be curious to see how many people would recognise him if he spent an hour working on my Morrisons kiosk.  Can someone make that happen, please!

^ Perhaps I've got a twisted sense of humour but I thought that article was really funny, even if it is a little unkind to Andy, which is more than can be said of some of those who posted comments about it.  Some people need to get a life.

Agreed Aileen. I don't mind a bit of fun being poked at my favourite sports stars, as long as it's in a good jest.

Dont want to sound stupid but did they actually write them. If they did I would shake their hands. Roger's is particularly funny because he totally gives **** to Rafa.

I really don't think so.  Just looking at Djoko's alone convinces me.  His spoken English is very good, but I seriously doubt he could come out with something like this -

"I was really worried going into Wimbledon, and it wasn’t about Roger. I’m sick of how he looks like a sourpuss out there all the time now, but I’ll be the first to admit that he’s still got game, dopey one-handed backhand and all. And Andy Murray? Oh, please! I honestly think Neil Harman would have had more confidence playing against me."

Apart from anything else would Djoko even know who Neil Harman is?

Nah,they're good,and they're funny,but I'm gonna say they definitely weren't written by the actual players!I agree with Alis,it sounds like it was written by someone aiming for the kind of thing Pseudofed does-though to be honest,I think they should've had him do them him (her?) self-he just does it so well that I don't think much can top his,or even come close to it!They were funny though.

Nadal brings secret flying visit to Rotterdam
 
28/11/12, 16:27 - Source: Reuters

© anp. Rafael Nadal (L) and Richard Krajicek between Rotterdam schoolchildren.

While the rain clatters down the blue sports field, beats Rafael Nadal laughing all balls back to the Rotterdam children across the net on his firing. Rain or shine, the Spanish tennis star that makes no difference. .
 
For months he could Mallorca enjoy the sun, but in the Dutch rain Nadal apparently more in his element. "Hopefully I can quickly real parties play," Nadal said during his surprise visit to Rotterdam. .
 
The Spanish tennis star had the plane caught in the district Hillegersberg-Schiebroek to be present at the opening of the 100th 'playground' of the Richard Krajicek Foundation. "It's a special day for Richard, because I want to be. Moreover, we are the Rafa Nadal Foundation also to young people to sports. The organization consists of Richard for 15 years and only 4 of us, so we can still learn, "said Nadal, whose visit was deliberately stopped by Krajicek in order to prevent a rush of fans.

It typifies the good relationship between Nadal and world star Krajicek that his training would interrupt to just up and down to Rotterdam travel. The former number 1 of the world resumed training last week, nearly five months after he had stood on the side with a lingering knee injury. After his humiliating defeat in the second round of Wimbledon, against Czech Lukas Rosol, Nadal had to opt out of the Olympics, U.S. Open and ATP World Tour Finals.

"I've missed many important tournaments, but injuries are part of the sport. If you are injured, you should accept it. " The Spaniard did in the intervening period some work for his Fundación Rafa Nadal "and enjoyed being with family on Majorca. "Although it was pretty fun, I was not happy. I would namely like tennis. Now I'm back 1 hour per day on the train, going in the right direction. "

Perhaps he will end this year in Abu Dhabi as usual again compete with Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. In Rotterdam, the opposition still some other level, but it was fun none the less. Nadal played first with Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb at his side a game against Krajicek and Rotterdam scholar and then took the time to in the pouring rain with all children to play golf. It was the Spaniard visibly enjoy being back on the track stand.

Thanks flowerpower.  Quaint though the translation is, its drift is clear.  Also in additional to Abu Dhabi I understand that Nadal is playing Doha as well.
