Good morning! As I’m settling in for semifinal #1, I notice there’s a new entry in the elmundo.es Q&A. (Google translation) Sounds like he got some new golf clubs for his birthday.

    What’s “a trolley travel”? With all the travelling that Rafa does I can’t imagine him being happy about getting more ‘travel’ for his birthday?

    Had to correct Google here. I’ve always wanted to ask Rafa whether he has trouble sleeping before big matches. I certainly would. Google translation of his answer is:

    “But I have…my little secret: watch a movie on the computer and so I fall asleep and think of the game.”

    The Spanish actually says “…watch a movie so I fall asleep and NOT think of the game” duh

    Wonder what movies he watches. I’ve always assumed players can’t take any kind of sleep aid. It would be a prohibited substance,right?

    One more correction: The question about the female players was not whether he asks them for advice. It’s whether they ask him for advice. And he says no.
