      Yes, we do. But not ya’ll as Andy Roddick tweeted earlier today. Proof he’s a transplant.

      I can never get enough RafaTot footage. Love him looking happy and playing soccer…and stretching those thighs. He knew that was important back then.

    Love little Rafa in football kit. Cute.

    Oh, and Emilio Sanchez is nice. Very nice.

    Yay! Rafa’s obviously a huge source of pride for Spain, and it seems he’ll be forever celebrated in his country (not to mention in the tennis world) so it’s pretty damn cool that we’re all able to witness his incredible story unfold. I can’t wait for the next chapter to begin!!! :D

    Oh young Rafa was so adorable. And all that leaping into the air for joy whenever he won, ah what a cutie.

    So he’s country should be proud of him, I have never seen anyone as patriotic as Rafa on the tour, he’s committment to the Davis cup barring injury of course, he’s fight to Olympic Gold and we all watched him in Madrid semis’ what a remarkable athelete he is and Spain are lucky to have him.

    What’s not to be proud of? Rafa’s a great athlete and person. Spain is lucky that they have him to represent their country, and Rafa doesn’t seem to mind the weight of Spain on his shoulders. When he lost in the FO I thought it was nice that the country were supportive of him, not criticising.
    And young Rafa looks so awkward and sweet and he had a normal boy’s haircut.
