At least, that’s what Cheryl Murray says Rafa is in today’s blog entry:
I’m always interested in the press conferences of the players that lose their matches, because when the chips are down, that’s when the real player comes out (for reference, watch a Roddick interview sometime). I bring this up largely because I just left the Nadal press conference and several times he pulled out the old “I’ve said this 100 times” preface. It sounds testy, doesn’t it? The thing is that it doesn’t actually come out that way when he says it. I think he must have a gift, because even when he scolds, he does it politely.
