FB – Hamburg 2003

Moya has to tell Rafa which chair to sit in, but a very young Rafa ends up beating his mentor. He also tries to steal Moya’s towels! Sneaky bastard.

    Hah, I love this! You can almost see the “how stupid am I” look on Rafa’s face when Moya points out that he is in the wrong chair. :)

    He is only 17 or 18 here and so strong. The grunting is fantastic!

      I know. I love the way Moya just casually points at the sign like, “read much, Rafa?”

    You know what guys? I think Rafa was only 16 in this clip. It was 6 years ago and before his birthday (Hamburg was before RG) so if you take 6 from 22 (which was his age at the time of Madrid which replaced Hamburg), our boy was 16 at the time. What a huge win for him. By the way, I found a clip in my “favorites” that is so sweet. It shows the Rafa we love. I hope you enjoy it…
