Flashback – Bastad 2003

A 16 year old Rafa bashing the ball. What’s with lining up the ball with the “y” in the racket before serving? The ticks we never got to know… Heh.

    Just too cute! I LOVE how he not only places the ball on the Y of the racket. But he then looks down to be sure that it is aligned EXACTLY.

    Just too adorable! And I second everything you said there faecoleman, amazing, he even sets of that aura of pure strength, fight, and determination at 17! He’s something special…
