    Nice find Miri, I never saw any of his clay matches in 2005 prior to the French Open, his ground strokes here are awsome, I forget that even though his game was more counterpunching then he was so so strong for his age. I loved the commentators comments also.. baby Rafa was indeed cute!

    wow… look at how fast he serves. 2 3 bounces and there u go.

    They both look like babies! And, yes, Rafa did play faster then. He must be getting old now so he has to slow down…..

    I watched the 6 parts – he was being called the ‘phenom’ and the future of Spanish men’s tennis. He was impressive as a 18 year old. I think this was beginning of his fantastic clay court run. Interesting to compare this Rafa to the bag check Rafa. Sweet.

    Is this the tournament where he lost the Pear trophy in the taxi?

    Baby Rafa looks invisible there. So many compliments from the commentators.

    Is that the way americans pronounce Nadal? I understand why somebody can find it annoying. LOL! But other than that so much love for Rafa: “The sky is the limit for Rafa Nadal” “The future of spanish tennis” “Nerves of steel”

    My favourite part at 8:02

    Commie 1: Oh, to be 18 again. Ought to be 18, a professional athlete, wealthy and attractive. This kids got it all, doesn’t he?

    Commie 2: You bet

      I love his slightly, very slightly scruffy & not a care in the world look here. Hope he attacks like this for the next 7 matches!
