RafaLint: June 9th
Truncated lint because I got started so late and am dead tired. Speaking of starting late, Rafa’s on the OOP for 1 singles match, the continuation of his 2nd round doubles match and, if he and Marc! stage a comeback and win, a second doubles match…and he doesn’t start until the 3rd match on center court. Wonder what the weather forecast is like…
Some Rafa practice videos can be found here.
Rafael Nadal: The Best Ever? – by Nick Bollettieri
Rafa and his PlayStation skills (or lack thereof) are mentioned in this interview with Andy Murray.
Can you take out frustrations on the court by beating someone such as Rafa Nadal on the PS3?
Yeah, I’m definitely better than Rafa Nadal at Pro Evo [laughs]. The thing is we play two-against-two in teams. He plays with his tennis partner, a guy called Juan Monaco, and I play with Dani, my coach. It can be close.
