Rafa: My favourite movie is Gladiator

Hello Rafa, just wanted to thank you for blogging to all of your fans! : o) What are four of your favorite movies and why? Good Luck at Wimbledon - Terri, Yucca Valley, Ca.

RN: Thank you for supporting me and for reading it. My favourite movie is Gladiator.

Sorry R=FK it wasn´t "300"

What do you call moonballing? Everybody can moonball. Can you do this?
At the other end of the spectrum was the Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, who generated topspin at an incredible rate that averaged over 3300rpm, more than 3 times as much spin of Mary Jo. Bruguera's average on 8 forehands was actually 3331rpms, and included the single fastest spinning forehand we recorded, an amazing 3751rpms in a match against Marcelo Rios.

In men's pro tennis it normally takes about 1 and 1/3 seconds for the ball to travel from one playerUs racket to the other in a baseline exchange. In the case of Sergi Bruguera's forehand, this means the ball is turning over itself 70 to 80 times as it travels to his opponent!

And what better movie to be a favor of Rafa's because that is how I see him

I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.

Not 300! Spartan no less

Now I understand how he feels when he gets into the stadium, full of romans demanding he either go for the kill or kill himself!

Coincidentally, that's Sampras' favorite movie.
