Susanna728 sent in a link to her photo album from the 2008 and 2009 Indian Wells tournament – Enjoy! And thanks to Susanna728 for putting together the album and sending in the link.
As Atch2 reminds me, the new rankings are out. Verdasco drops out of the top 10 after a brief stint and is replaced by another Fernando. Rafa’s zero points from Rotterdam have been replaced by his DC points. I’m not sure why, but I’m not complaining.
There is a mother-lode of HUGE photos on the Quely site from their Rafa promotion. Enjoy! (Bonus Marc! included)
Well, more like crackers, but a gal can dream, can’t she?
First up, a photoshoot with Rafa (papa Nadal and Carlos Costa came along for the ride).
Next up, a longer video with Rafa touring the factory, signing contracts and then a repeat of the photoshoot:

Thanks to Eliana for sending these in! (Eliana, you can always use the contact form if you’d rather send stuff that way.)
A limited edition Fundación Rafa Nadal hat is available from Rafa’s official store for a steep fee of 25 Euros (at least steep to those suffering from a weak dollar and the fact that shipping is almost as much as the hat).

If you are using IE6, the new look isn’t going to work for you at all. Your life here will be painful. Upgrade – you’ll feel better in the morning for doing it.
Looks like Sony is doing a good job of taking down all the videos. I’m guessing the one on Shakira’s official site will stick around, though. *fingers crossed* She also links to Yahoo, so I’m hoping this one will also stay. (Thanks, patzin)
Is it okay that my favorite parts are the ones when they are cracking up? It’s like Rafa just couldn’t take any of this “posing and looking serious” stuff anymore and
In a nutshell, Nadal was commissioned to play a role, just as an actor or a dancer might, if asked lend their talent to an artistic discipline. Shakira asked, and Nadal consented. Their respective legal representatives sat down and crafted a contract. A business contract. I thought it a rather illogical leap to
In the “blatantly obvious” category today, we have a report titled “Nadal concerned about injuries” – I mean, he’d be neck deep in denial if he wasn’t, right?
Rafael Nadal “is worried” about his constant injuries although the former top-ranked player is confident of getting back to his best form, according to Spain’s Davis Cup captain Albert Costa.
“He is worried about his physical state but he’s working every day to get better,” Costa said on Wednesday.
So, panicky headline turns into “no
