RafaLint: November 26th
There’s actually been stuff going on in Rafa-land, but I’ve been very busy. Sorry about that. I don’t know how I’m going to manage balancing my new outdoor activities with the tennis schedule once it heats back up again…
Rafa was named one of the most loved Spanish sportsmen of the last 25 years by XL Semanal (mangle). Here’s a short interview brought about by the declaration(mangle). (Be sure to click through to both of the above articles for a nice photo.)
- Nadal, convencido de que volverá a jugar “al mismo nivel de los últimos años” – via rtve which means there’s a video too. (mangle)
- Rafael Nadal: “Espero estar donde estaba” – per the mangle, seems that Toni is going to Abu Dhabi and Doha with Rafa.

- Rafa Nadal, este lunes en Sitges como Embajador de la Campaña de Responsabilidad Social – about the Bacardi event. (mangle)
- iB3 coverage of the Bacardi event.
- Two short clips of Rafa golfing. My favorite thing is his determined looking walk up to the ball after he’s made up his mind on how to make the shot: one; two. And then he says hello.
- Toni gives a talk.
- Some shaky video of serve practice.
Rafa does social media:
- Tomeu looks so darn happy to be there.
- Anyone up for a bike ride?
- Biking not your thing? How about a “bath”?

My world’s are colliding. I have an Amazing Race fan site that I no longer pay attention to thanks to Rafa taking up all my time. :D
