Great interview & answers.
Rafa’s English is amazing at times here. I’m sure he’s been practising on speaking as fast in English as he does in Mallorquin!
He’s lookin very yummy too.
I agree…I love how relaxed he is here. On to quarterfinals!!
So articulate now!!
Yahoo! Rafa answered my question on THE AGE (Australian paper)! So cute! :o)
Question from Aini: Hi, Rafa. I met you at Doha Open 2012 and you were very kind to your fans .I hope you like the Harley Davidson T-shirt I gave you on Jan 3, 2012. Did it fit you? My question is: I heard you got a Harley Davidson bike back home in Manacor. Do you get to ride it much in the off season?
All the best for the Australian Open and the rest of 2012 season! VAMOS! :o)
Aini Idora from Malaysia
Rafa says: I never rode it yet. It is still at the shop!
I’m so glad for you, Aini. I know you’ve been expecting it for a few days now. You must be so happy. You shouldn’t have asked him a 2 part question, as he always leaves the 1st part un-answered, which he did here too with your T-shirt. But, never mind, you got an answer finally!!!!
Thanks Maria! :o)
This has nothing to do with Rafa’s post-match interview for ESPN. Please don’t post off-topic comments.
That’s very strange re: Rafa saying “I never rode it yet.” My daughter asked him about it when he got it,and he replied he rides it often. One tends to wonder if he’s not really answering these questions himself, but someone else is doing it for him like Benito, his PR guy or else he’s confused by the question in Enlish perhaps? Personally, I doubt seriously he has time to answer all the questions for newspapers & same for FB & Twitter! I say concentrate on the tennis Rafa & go all the way to win this AO event again as you know you can do it – Vamos :) P.S. That’s the truth.
It’s not often that Rafa is so expansive in his answers in English so this was an expected treat. And aren’t his hands just beautiful?
ALL of him is beautiful. I have never been so mesmerised over an individual. Its ridiculous. He’s so charasmatic and in his games he takes us on this emotional journey. Mesmerising….
Absolutely agree. I was never a sports fan before Rafa. From the first time I saw him hunched over in the ready position looking like some beautiful predatory animal I haven’t been able to take my eyes off him.
I think even Chris Evert was swept up in a blast of pure sex appeal emanating from Rafa beside her. I’ve never heard her be a fan of anyone except Roger, who she can rave about endlessly, but apparently she is now a fan of Rafa too! I guess there was no way to be immune with Rafa being so up close and personal, -I could feel his charisma and heat coming right through my lap top screen. Holy machismo – what a beautiful man!
I know! She just had to touch him. I don’t blame her.
Rafa’s hands are Super SOFT..believe me..I touched it few times in Doha (Qatar Open 2012)…swoon….GORGEOUS MAN!
and when Rafa looked into my eyes and said THANK YOU and smiled (after I passed him a gift, a Harley davidson tshirt, oj 3 Jan 2012), i was weak at the knees…
You lucky woman!
