Re: the NADARRAY thread

WOOW this is bad! I find it hard to believe this is actually possible. And also to belive that "NADARRAY" fans like Nadal, actually.

Proud fan of:

It's Murray fans who like Nadal. Not the other way around.

True, but that's more like a little brother/big brother thing, instead of true respect.

...while losing to him on constant basis, you have to add

If the bolded part was enough to like a player then the Fedophiles would be the biggest Nadal fans too

The day Rafa Nadal set a Scottish teenager on the road to stardom

Andy Murray's journey to becoming the first British Wimbledon finalist since 1938 might never have occurred but for a chance post-match conversation with a talented Spanish 15-year-old back in 2001.
Murray, then aged 14, had been playing in Andorra in an international junior tournament and was passing time with a Spanish competitor. As the teenagers chatted, the two compared training regimes.

'This guy was telling me he practised with people like Carlos Moya, who had been world No 1,' said Murray.
'He said he'd never beaten him, never even broken his serve - but it was significant he was playing him at all.
'I started thinking. I never got the chance to practise with Tim Henman. I didn't even meet him properly until I was 16.'


That Spanish teenager was Rafa Nadal and it could be argued it was the two-time Wimbledon champion who put Murray on course to become the first British Wimbledon champion since Fred Perry.
On that day in 2001, Murray immediately phoned his mother, Judy, back home in Scotland.

'Do you know who this guy practises with?' ranted Murray.
'Carlos Moya! Do you know who I practise with? My big brother! He's playing four hours a day. I'm playing four hours a week.'

From that conversation came the upheaval in the life of the Murray family they credit with turning a talented teenager into a world-class player.
It was to Catalonia that Murray turned in search of the environment Nadal had been enjoying.
The tennis centre of which the Spaniard spoke and where he hit with Moya was the Sánchez-Casal Academy, on the outskirts of Barcelona, run by Emilio Sánchez Vicario, brother of 1995 and 1996 Wimbledon ladies' finalist Arantxa, and Sergio Casal.

Rejecting an opportunity from the LTA to train at Queen's Club, Murray, then 15, left his Dunblane home and embarked on a new life at the academy.
Fees were £30,000 a year and, although the LTA put up £10,000, Judy and her husband William, from whom she had separated, were hard-pressed to meet the rest.
Only when Judy persuaded the likes of Tennis Scotland, Sport England and soft drinks firm Robinsons to contribute could Andy take his place.
'Judy was very clear what she wanted,' said Sánchez. On his arrival though, Sánchez was initially unimpressed.
'I remember the first time I played with him, he didn't look like anything,' he said. 'But when we began to play, he started hitting his shots, he had all these angles that kept putting me in difficult positions. It was amazing.'

For two and a half years, Murray honed his game under the legendary Colombian coach Pato Alvarez.
In the Catalan sunshine, he could happily hit for four hours a day and train for an additional two with an intensity unknown in British tennis.
'I think the club system in England is part of the problem and perhaps the situation with weather,' said Sánchez.
'Here we only have 50 days of rain a year. In England there is a shortage of courts and competition.'
Within months of graduating, Murray won the junior US Open and began his march up the senior rankings.
And notwithstanding the nationwide disappointment of not being able to cheer on Nadal in the Wimbedon final, there will at least be a corner of Spain celebrating if Murray fulfils his destiny.

Re: the NADARRAY thread

I miss Rafa

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: the NADARRAY thread

Does anyone know Italian? This google translation isn't very good, but it seems Judy is saying Rafa has a closer relationship with Murray compared to Djokovic and that they are playing on ps even when they are miles away from each other.
Quote:
e quando le ho chiesto se Andy fosse più legato a Rafa oppure al coetaneo Djokovic ha sì detto “è buon amico di entrambi, ma con Rafa gioca di continuo anche a distanza di migliaia di chilometri e non so come facciano, a PlayStation con il remoter…Direi che con Rafa oggi ha più feeling”) e che ad esempio non ha fatto nessuna difficoltà a darmi i suoi recapiti.
Quote:
when I asked if Andy was more linked to Rafa or to the same age Djokovic said yes" is a good friend of both, but with Rafa plays continuously even after thousands of kilometers and do not know how they do it, to the PlayStation with remoter ... I would say that with Rafa today has more feeling "), and that such did not give me any trouble his addresses.
