Rafael Nadal, Bernard Tomic have hearts racing

Rafa is in Melbourne and hitting – he was allegedly supposed to hit with local sensation Bernard Tomic, but ended up hitting with another partner. Article here.

Despite the claims to tiredness, Nadal looked in ominous touch yesterday, sweetly timing the ball in a high-intensity session.

You know how most people reply “fine” by reflex when asked how they are doing? I’m starting to think that Rafa replies with “tired.”
