Recent quote: “Now the hard-court season is starting. It’s a different story. But at the same time, I’ll keep going with the same mentality and this (Hamburg) title helps to be a little bit more calm and add some points to my ranking to try to finish the year in the top 8 again.”

  1. Just read an Uncle Toni interview where, in addition to criticism of the Wimby scheduling, he makes the following comments:

    1. Rafa lost the match in the first 2 sets of the match against Muller. Toni says Muller player better than Rafa in those first two sets, Rafa did not return at all and that was a problem. He is confident Rafa will build on the improvements he made at this Wimby and be stronger next year.
    2. Toni says losing in the 4th round was disappointing, especially given the players in Rafa’s half of the draw, losing the AO final against Fed was more disappointing. Clearly Team Rafa was not as spooked by Rafa’s draw as I was, interesting……..

    Toni sounds upbeat about the NA swing. Keeping fingers and toes crossed Rafa stays healthy!!!!

  2. Rafa shows his personalized, unique and handmade MAGIC MONSTER given him for donating money to help build the Pediatric Cancer Center at the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona:

    The MAGIC MONSTERS are small monsters that have magical powers to beat the BIG monster called childhood cancer:


    👍 to Rafa!

  3. The RN Foundation handed out its 3rd set of athletic scholarships to play tennis and study at a university in the USA. Scholarships were presented to ten Spanish students at the ceremony held on Tuesday.
    Maria Francisca (aka Xisca), who is the Director of the Social Integration of the RN Foundation, attended the ceremony.
    The RNF website (excerpts): “Since 2015, the Rafa Nadal Foundation is implementing a new ‘Study and Play’ project, which is being held parallel to our sport and education programs for children and young people that are disadvantaged or at risk of social exclusion…
    This new project offers dedicated young sports people the opportunity to access scholarships at North American universities, where they can continue studying and competing at the same time.
    Taking part in this program could influence the present and future of these youngsters, removing the need to choose between studying and continuing their sporting careers.”
    The RN Foundation is collaborating with I-Con Sports (in Spain) to provide financial support for young athletes who wish to study in the USA. I-Con Sports was created in Barcelona in 2003.


    👍 to Rafa!

in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
