    Suing Rafa for not giving him recognition for his advice? What a crazy person? So does it mean Rafa should sue him back cos those serves aren’t working any more >:I

    • aRafaelite says:

      It’s ridiculous. Are players now expected to publicly acknowledge everyone that’s had an influence on their career every time they win? Are coaches taking out patents on techniques or advice? What nonsense!

      You want recognition? Ask Rafa to help out with some of the kids you coach and get an article in the paper or on the evening news and joke about how Rafa agreed to help you out because you helped him win the US Open! Suing him might make you famous but the recognition will be for all the wrong reasons.

      Hopefully the Mallorcan courts know how to deal appropriately with people who take actions against the island’s favourite son!

  2. I read the Kia ad campaign and found it so very long and confusing. Who thinks up of all that stuff? All that fuss just to sell a car? I guess car sales must not be at their best right now.

    The slideshow in the first article is hilarious.

  4. flissyg says:

    I have a sore throat and I generally feel rubbish but the dog showing and water skiing photos in that first article have cheered me right up!

    • Sofie says:

      flissy hope you get better soon!

      Meanwhile over here I might be catching a cold too…

      What a nice way to start November :p

      At least we’ll see Rafa play soon, I guess :)

      • flissyg says:

        Thanks Sofie, you’re an Angel. I hope you’re feeling better soon too! As much as I wanted our boy to rest instead of playing Bercy, I’m really looking forward to seeing him again!

    Great Rafa lint as always Miri, loved the Atp article, the sports article with the photo shops’ and erm the golf vid too, what was that man saying at the end, fantastico, Rafa or something?..

  6. Kathy says:

    Loved the link to the photoshopped Rafa sports—the dog was hilarious and waterski one cracked me up. So funny. His facebook photo where they are “making strategy” is so cute, looks like they are mostly drinking wine! TY,Miri

  7. Nic says:

    LOLOLOLOLOLOL to eternity!!! Haha those are hilarious! The crocodile wrestling made me totally guffaw. And the dog show one was so aggro it was hilarious! Ah, I sound like such an idiot chuckling to myself here late at night. Haha, can’t get over it. Very very fun.

    Thanks for pulling this together, Miri.

    About Rafa’s recent FB postings —

    I used to think that the most photogenic of the Spanish tennis players was Verdasco. Lately, though, I’ve decided that that honor belongs to Marc Lopez.

    Marc looks good in every photo I’ve ever seen of him.

    • Keith says:

      Yeah Marc! looks a cutie seems such a nice boy. Rafa has good choices in friends. Nando seems to be really moody; all of a sudden he grew his devil beard, started to dis tournaments and play terrible Tennis. So disappointing. Hope he snaps out of whatever it is and plays good Tennis again.

    Skin tight golf clothes…I like…lol. Nike really must make those inseams a little longer for him…his backside is too big for those pants! Now we know he doesn’t just pull his wedgies on the court as part of his “routine”!

  10. Emmanuelle says:

    Sorry Miri because I know that it’s not the subject of this article but It seems that Rafa would be in a French TV show tonight on Canal+. It’s a live talk show so it would mean rafa would be already in Paris… It’s called “Le Grand Journal”. If it’s true there will be a video on the channel’s website.

    Maybe you already know it but in case I prefer to tell you.

    • L says:

      I heard that it was next monday the 7th october, I think Rafa’s only leaving for Paris later this week.

  11. Emmanuelle says:

    Ok. I hope so. On the official website of the channel it’s planned for tonight. It must be a mistake. It wouldn’t be a big surprise for a French channel to make such a mistake lol

  12. Annie says:

    Miri, don’t know where you find this stuff, but the photoshopped pics were hilarious. I guffawed at the dog show one! Thanks for the chuckle. I’m up in the northeast and the storm did tons of damage. We’ll be without power until saturday! (I’m at my mother in law’s – at least I’ve got internet here) :)

  13. Annie says:

    It looks like Canal is even teasing Rafa about his wedgies. They highlighted 4 or 5 of them.

    • rafafan says:

      CANAL + video of golf event. Annie, I counted 5 wedgies too. It was quite extraordinary, one after the other or perhaps I am being stupid. They showed these as the highlights of the event – not the actual golf then.

      Am interested to see how this chap gets on with suing Rafa over the recognition of the serve.

      Funny how Toni going on about the mentality toughness in Rafa – which doesn’t really seem to be the case with the 6 losses to Djok this year. Even Toni and Rafa has said themselves and in Rafa’s book constantly how nervous Rafa gets. This is so much the case now than it has ever been. Hope he gets the mindset back (and the fitness of course – which I guess won’t really happen until 2012 and back on his beloved clay)
