    The past two days, I must say that I’ve been basking in joy and pride brought about by Rafa’s USO win. :-) I guess this is how our parents feel seeing us achieve major milestones in our lives. I agree with @begee about how this interview reflects the kind of a man Rafa truly is. <3 And thank you, Miri, for all your hard work and dedication to bring us Rafa fans these wonderful stories about our champ. Cheers!

    Thanks Miri, I really liked the Charlie Rose Interview. This guy Nadal is humble to the core and acknowledges Federer and Novak for who they are. Great rivals. Tennis has been Blessed with all these great atheletes.

    Of both of these interviews I can only say-just lovely. His smile, his sincerity, his passion
    Lights up the room and could melt the coldest heart.

    Nice interview with Charlie Rose. It seemed like Charlie Rose’s question about tactics against Nole made give away some of his strategy that he used in the match?

    What an amazing interview! This is the best interview with Rafa I have ever seen, the pace, the questions; I would say even he enjoyed it. Thanks Rafa for being such an extraordinary athlete and human being. Thanks Miri for sharing so timely; I’m almost speechless… Thanks!

    Love the Charlie Rose interview. Charlie is a fan, thoughtful; wonder how long the interview lasted; what was edited. Rafa looked very calm and within himself. He exudes confidence and understanding of what it is and what it takes to be successful. Living in the present, working hard, the journey is more important than the trophy. The warrior king.

    Patrick McEnroe has said, there is no one like Rafa.

    What a lovely interview, Miri your mum is right. Thank you, we would be lost without all your hard work and information.

    Thank you Miri! This Charlie Rose interview of Rafa is truly special. Rafa continues to amaze me as he answers questions with such excellent timing, clarity and ease.

  14. Lan says:

    Miri, million thanks. You are very kind and hard working person I’ve ever known. I truly appreciate very much for all the links and information you posted. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the Charlie Rose interview Miri; I missed it and I’m really happy to watch it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Rafa be so thoughtful, emotive, confident and all around brilliant in an interview (credit to Rose who asked him probing, interesting questions). And I agree, his English is remarkably good; much better than in his press conferences. Speaking of his English, has anyone ever heard a more adorable pronunciation of the words “unstoppable” and “confusion”? LOL! What great champ and an even greater human being.

  16. Patricia Orona says:

    Lovely, lovely. Rafa is the best, humble, sexy, What a human being. So proud of being his fan, love you Rafa.

    Wonderful interview with Charlie Rose. Rafa was so lovely on it – showing all the characteristics we love about him – passion, humbleness, emotional…. He has grown into such a mature guy. Thank you so much for posting it Miri. You do amazing work on this site.

    This interview with Rafa by Charlie Rose was great – I had to share it especially for all my tennis friends who have such a passion for this sport. Here we have a man who has dedicated himself to tennis and shown us to what extremes one can go when you have a passion and desire to succeed. He is no doubt in my mind, and I’m sure many others, the greatest tennis player of all time. He has proved over and over again that he is the hardest working player on the court in his ability to play every point like it is the last and to keep striving for more improvement. His composure on and off court, his acknowledgement and compliments to his opponents, especially Roger and Novak show how humble he truly is. What a great example he sets for our younger generation of up and coming tennis players who can look up to him and strive to follow his example. He has made his family and friends forever proud of him. I am so grateful that my sons have had the privilege to watch his exciting matches and see his drive for success.
