We all know that, but so does Anne Keothavong:
I’m a big Rafa fan and this evening I was just in awe of him. I was sitting in the players’ dining area with my coach Claire and another coach and as soon as Rafa walked in after his match he had people constantly asking for his autograph and a photo. I couldn’t believe how patient he was with everyone but then it got silly and he left as we did.
As we were walking out of the club, there were so many people waiting with their cameras for him. Claire and I just watched as women literally threw themselves on to him! Once he made it to the transportation area where we were waiting for a car to take us back to the hotel I was tempted to give him a hug too but managed to restrain myself! Whatever the ‘X Factor’ is, he’s got it.
