- Nadal likely seeded fifth at Wimbledon with possible blockbuster quarterfinal – by Courtney Nguyen (si.com)
- Nadal To Return To China Open In Beijing – via atpworldtour.com
- Rafael Nadal: French Open winner a ‘sporting great’ – by Jonathan Overend (bbc.co.uk) Thanks, JK.
- Rafa and the ball kids – he’s smiling so much. I wonder how his face didn’t break? (Thanks, Dianne)
- A slideshow of lovely black and white photos from the 2013 Roland Garros final. She also has a slide show from the semis…and more. Click around! (You did click around, right? And you found this, right?)
- The above got me searching around and found the same photographer’s gallery from the 2012 final and one of color photos. Again, click around for more wonderful photos.
Rafa does social media:
- Once again, Rafa’s promoting personalized autographs – kind of. (I really don’t get the point of these. It’s just printed on by the maker, not signed… Then again, I’m not into actual autographs.)
