Is Nadal gay?

Reply

There was a pretty scurrilous interview in the Sunday Times last year that hinted pretty heavily at this. I did see this in the press some time afterwards that made me wonder too -

"RAFA Nadal landed Andy Murray in hot water with his girlfriend – by pretending to be her love rival.

The Scots tennis ace was bombarded with a string of suggestive texts from the “other woman” while out for a romantic meal with Kim Sears.

Panicking Andy, 24, was left making excuses all through dinner – until he realised he’d been spotted by the Spanish ace.

Andy said: “One of the messages said, ‘Hi Andy, you look great tonight, shame your girlfriend is here'.

"It had a couple of kisses at the end.

“I panicked. I didn’t know who it was from. It wasn’t until I was on my way home and I was walking back to the hotel that I realised it was Rafa Nadal.

“I am in the process of trying to think up a good prank to get him back.” "


But in the end who cares? Like John says being a great player is down to personality, skill and heart which Nadal has in spades. His sexuality is irrelevant.

Now gaylord tennis on the other hand ... http://www.robnewman.com/gaylord.html

It sounds to me like it was a Nadal prank - the sort of ones one guy might play on another - rather than an indication that he's gay.

Aye. Probably was just a prank.

I felt bad that I caught myself speculating when I originally read it. As someone who went through much of secondary school being called gay because I had long hair was quiet and totally rubbish at football, I hate the whole male social thing of deciding on someone's sexuality because they don't fit into some arbitrary rule of 'masculinity'.

Unless it's a Djokovic hug. Rafa is definitely not into that!  :p

Thanks mumbler.. but we actually knew about the Rafa prank, and it's posted in the Videos thread.
Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth himself (around 1.00min):

It's reassuring to know that at least one Daily Record article has been based on a reliable source!

It does seriously beg the question: Is this the sort of prank a gay male would play?  I very much doubt it.  Also from memories of my own youth the lads I hung around with, who were all hetero, were always having little jokes like this.

I have a tendency for doing these sort of jokes.  My favourite was what I called 'gay chicken' where I walked inside a Mall holding hands with my friend and the first person to let go lost. I won, of course.

It would be nice if more blokes weren't so afraid to show their feelings.

I think the whole thing is ridiculous as it doesn't matter whether anybody s gay or not. When the questions stopped being asked we'll all grow because we'll know it's as important as what my neighbour had for breakfast yesterday.
