    Always respectful of his competition, esp in that Rusty Hewitt was one of his childhood idols.

    It never fails to impress me how Rafa is very patient with the herods of fans asking for his signature. What a great guy! Most other players would’ve stopped after 5 or 10 or 20, but Rafa just keeps going on! Even when the French official was apparently telling him something about going to the studio (I think), presumably for the press conference, he just ignored him and kept on signing, lol! For anyone who wonders why Rafa’s fans are such a loyal bunch, such a video clip should be all the answer needed. We love the guy he’s so down to earth and truly appreciates his fans, beside the more obvious reasons of being an awesome tennis player and a true champ on and off the court.

      The first sentence should’ve read “It never fails to impress me how Rafa is very patient with the HORDS…”!

    This clip tells me that I should never hand out my favourite pen for Rafa to sign. Would never get it back!

      Oh, go on, GIVE him your favourite pen and be thrilled to bits when he walks off with it – and tell everyone he uses YOUR pen!!

    LOL at Rafa suddenly having multiple idols, after how many years of insisting he never had any?:)

    They’re certainly going on the charm offensive with telling him the crowd loves him. I read somewhere that Tio Toni was interviewed on French TV and they tried the same thing, but his face made it clear he was having none of it:)

    Is there anyone in Court Philippe Chatrier that didn’t get a Rafa autograph?
