The Times Online has posted the first USO Rafa Q&A.
How are your knees doing? Are you feeling well enough for two weeks of matches at the US Open? – Grace, Virginia
Yes, I am feeling good and today was asked about it. I am 100% ready. Many thanks
I like the sound of 100%!
So great to have you back on the tour. What do you like most about New York? Do you have one or two experiences that stand out? – Sarah K
Many thanks. I like a lot of things about New York but I don’t have much time to enjoy. I love the musicals here in Broadway and I used to go and see the city. It is tougher for me nowadays.
Sucks that he can’t just roam around on his own and enjoy the city – it’s a great city to get lost in.
Where have you ridden your Harley-Davidson motor bike? – Atch2
Back home in Mallorca. But not much to be honest.
I still have trouble picturing it.
Do you ever plan on getting a Twitter account? Andy Roddick, the Williams sisters and Andy Murray do. Your fans would love to hear about your daily routine/activities. – Amelia M, St. Paul, Minnesota
No, I am doing facebook and my website. My English is not that good and I have help to translate so imagine adding one more! Go to those 2 and that should be.
I understand what you mean when you say you feel “special sensations” about your tennis, but when you say it about other things like playing the exhibition with Serena Williams and John McEnroe, what do you mean exactly? – Cedrine
The place where we had the chance to play was great, in the middle of the city. So the feeling (probably that’s what I really mean) was great.
Rafa’s all about the special sensations and gives them out whenever possible.
If the doctor told you your knees would be perfect if you never ate cookies & cream ice-cream again, would you do it? – Juana
ABSOLUTELY!!! But unfortunately that’s not the case. However my knees are well now… touch wood!
Awwww, that’s a big sacrifice!
