    Hey thanks miri …I hope you got to watch this yourself. It was so sweet.

    Oh man…:D I luvd the hawk eye comment by Roger.

    • aRafaelite says:

      Yes, that was funny! Loved Rafa & Nole consulting over whether to challenge line calls, and then waiting to see on hawk-eye how many miles out they were! I think Rafa & Kimmy even challenged one call when it won them a point, and Courier was like “hey, just take the point”!

  4. johanne says:

    This was hilarious, I loved it! So glad they streamed it!

    And the Rafa thigh porn was AMAZE. Nole & Kimmy are so lucky! LOL ;)

  5. Isabelle says:

    This was so fun, thank you Miri!

    Everyone is so Rafadorable.

    What a great start to the AO, with a charity.

  7. patzin says:

    This was amazing fun, put together in a short time period, starting with Roger and his friends. They had a great time playing on court and the fans responded in support of Haiti relief. Great night; glad I could watch the whole event on web and more segments are forthcoming on YT.

  8. CC says:

    OMG, cuteness overload! Rafa looks so delicious and A-Rod is so funny. So sad I couldn’t watch the whole thing… );

  9. An says:

    How Rafa landed on the ground…. So funny!

    • sia says:

      That was hilarious … Roger was very funny throughout. Rafa struggled a bit being the only one there who wasn’t comfortable in English but he did his best. The whole thing was so sweet.

      • Atch2 says:

        Even though Rafa’s English wasn’t fluent, he was still adorable and funny, and had the luv of many many fans. Fed teased Rafa a lot though and he probably couldn’t get back at Fed bec of the language.

        And watching Rafa team up with Nole was a dream come true. And that chest bump was classic. Had wanted to see how Fed and Rafa teamed up though.

    • teejustice says:

      I had forgotten about that. Fed was actually funny last night. Also wasn’t it Nole doing the alphabet for his grunts rallying against the other player (I forgot who) grunting “ahh” sound. So Nole would go “b” then “c”, etc.

  10. naaz says:

    Priceless!!!!!! There are a host of other videos on u tube Rafa with novak, rafa with Kim and the others too by SharapovaVideos. check them out

    • Rafangel says:

      Thanks, you’re a gem. So wanted to watch this but couldn’t :(

    • Rafangel says:

      ESPN isn’t showing it any more :'( And You Tube has taken down everything except 4 miserable minutes of highlights, apparently because Tennis Australia has lodged a copyright claim. A copyright claim? On a charity match where the players played FOR FREE the day before a Grand Slam and the crowds gave FREELY because they wanted to assuage the horrific suffering of their fellow human beings in the most unimaginable horror? If that’s true, SHAME SHAME SHAME on Tennis Australia. That is inexcusable.

  11. Atch2 says:

    Rather cute that Nole has ‘Nole’ printed on his shirt and shorts. His shorts are a bit to tight, no?

    Interesting in the choice of top men’s players that Fed chose for the event. Hewitt and Roddick from the same generation and Hewitt’s a local. But Rafa and Nole bec they are very familiar on and off court (player council) and they seem to get along well.

    Kim is so lucky being the only girl on Rafa’s team blue.

    Luved Kim asking Rafa where she should serve to Fed, given they’ve played so many times, and Fed answer ‘he plays to my backhand, then the forehand, forehand, forehand, … And also Serena commented something about not being able to handle the spin on Rafa’s ball.

    I laughed so much from this. So much fun and so funny.

  12. Dale C. A. says:

    oh so nice to see such rapport and camaderie !!!

  13. Dale C. A. says:

    thank u so much for the video, this is so funny…the last point was a cliffhanger…did Rafa get the point??

  14. Mama Coco says:

    I love these videos…they are the best thing ever. Rafa grunt amplified is a riot, loud enough without l mic. He still put some swagger in to the game and the amazing fist pumps as well. All for a good cause. You ROCK Rafa!!!

  15. faeaki7 says:

    Yep you can tell Rafa is a little shy but he does really well to entertain the crowd lol.. this is all so funny and Roger too!

  16. Sofia says:

    Every second of this makes me smile and giggle. They are all such great people, and we are so lucky we have them in our sport.

    My personal favorite:
    Serena: Don’t scare me like that again Rafa.
    Roger: Don’t worry I’ll get him back.

    He never got him back(:

  17. ejl says:

    amazing footages.. so many cute guys in tennis, And ‘vamos RafA’ sounded so much lovely from Roger.

  18. Ch F says:

    I’m a little late on this cause I was away for a few days, but I just have to say it, this is really great!!! Never saw Roger in such a good mood. His fluency in English helps a lot as well. Lovely to see Kim there too. What a great mixed doubles partner she would make for Rafa ;-)

    Oh and good luck to our Rafa for tomorrow!!!

  19. TennisNoob says:

    You can still watch them here:

    http://www.gototennisblog.com/2010/01/17/videos-roger-federer-and-friends-hit-for-haiti/

    Try downloading the videos. That way you can have them saved on your computer!

    (sorry for posting the same thing over and over again. I just thought that it’s important to make sure everyone sees the links before they’re taken down too!)

  20. Rafangel says:

    Thanks, really appreciate it. Haven’t had a chance to watch the match cos have a really pressing deadline (in fact I should’ve been in bed hours ago but have to get some footage before the evil empires claim it all for their own). My RealPlayer is downloading at the speed of sludge, too. Grr.

  21. Atch2 says:

    Reverse angle of the Grunting competition between Rafa and Fed:

  22. Atch2 says:

    I never got to see Rafa being massaged and towelled down by Kim and Nole bec Tennis Aus took the vids down. But found it here:
