    I wonder if most of the other players go thru the stretching, toning exercises as often as Rafa seems to. Movement/feet keep moving. Then practice. Dedication for excellence.

    Dedication for excellence! I doubt that others do, well at least I haven’t seen it. There is a nice piece written in the timesonline blog about Francois Roig, Rafa’s 2nd coach and his views on Rafa as a player his future etc, I recommend reading it. Btw he seems to be doing the drills without the ladders today, I wonder why, did they forget to bring them or something? he seems to know the moves anyway! nice clean striking of the ball there Rafa!

    Watching the vid is very calming. Rafa seems to practicing at the same intensity as before the injuries. Funny that Rafa’s going thru is warmup routine and Marc!’s just chatting away with Roig.

    Wondering if Team Murray had to do battle with Team Nadal, if Maymo could take on Murray’s trainer Jez Green coz he looks tough.

      I’d love to see Maymo and Muzz’s trainer throw down. Preferably at foot-tennis, ’cause Maymo (based on video evidence from Wimbledon a few years back) would get killed.

      On another note, I wonder if Marc! gets Maymo to stretch him out and tape up his fingers, or if he has to provide the physio services for himself, haha.
