Nine Slams, 18 ATP Masters titles, two Davis Cups, an Olympic Gold, World No.1 and he’s still only 24. Not bad for someone people (you know who you are) said was only a clay court specialist eh? And for every Federer fan who has told me Rafa will never be as great as him, I’d just like to point out a little fact, Roger Federer achieved his career Grand Slam aged 27, Rafa has achieved his at age 24 Nah nah na-na-nah 😛. To say Rafael Nadal will never be a legend is a joke, he already is. To say he is a clay court specialist is very true but more accurately Rafa is a tennis specialist, so commited to improving and changing his game in order to achieve his goals and if Rafa wants something you’d have to be a fool to bet against him getting it. Rafael Nadal has many nicknames, El Matador, The Raging Bull, Nadalek, The King of Clay. I have also heard him described by many people in many different ways, a hero, a warrior, a legend, a phenomenon, a superstar, an idol, indestructable, un-stoppable, and electric to name but a few, and it always makes me smile, whenever i hear any of them, to think of the shy little smile and the blush that would appear on his face if any of them were said in his pressence. This is one of the reasons i love Rafa and i am proud that he is one of my sons heros because despite all of the trophies, photoshoots, interviews and sponsorship deals he is still able to simply be Rafel Nadal, a good man from Manacor, Majorca, who works hard to achieve even his wildest dreams. 🙂
