    I was thinking that Rosetta Stone should sell a Mallorqui version. :) They’d make a lot of money off us Nadal fans.

    PS — I recently ordered and received the calendar and it’s on the wall of my office in my stuffy, conservative law firm. :) Muchas gracias and happy holidays!

    We must have caught the backhand section of the practice session bec his hands are firmly on the same grip. Luv seeing him whack those balls and the echoing sounds. Wonder how James is holding up in the sessions with Rafa.
    Uncle Toni’s daughter looks sweet.

    When I saw Rafa live this year again just listening to him hit the ball is truly amazing! he really spanks it so different from other players, it sounds different too, you read about this but you don’t quite understand it until you see and hear it for yourself, he is really special, really unique!
