Sounds like the photo did the trick and battered down your last defenses .

Blasphemy! There is nothing more beautiful than the Greek islands!

  • He is modest, as well being a great player. His modesty has nothing to do with image makers as it reaches the alert level of self doubt.
  • Ass
  • Smile

you forgot the best ones

Other factors, not minor ones, that played major role in determining me as a Rafa's fan:
  • Stopped watching tennis after a "traumatic experience" (more information in private ). Being exposed accidentally to tennis again in 2006. Changing TV channels in my hotel room in Barcelona, trying to find a non-catalan TV show to watch, and then it was the Roland Garros 2006 final . That's it. I got hooked on tennis again. I used to like Roger's game more, but as Roger has changed his game recently, I remembered the other guy who until then was in the back of my mind.
  • The beauty of Rafa's home island of Mallorca that captured my attention (and reasoning, I would say) in 2006. Seemed to me far more beautiful than the Greek islands.
  • The chat thread on Rafa's forum that Maria has created.

[*]Last, but far from being least as I've already said,a particular Rafa's photo I saw on the chat thread. His eyes expression was the only one I consider as a window into one's soul (more informatin in private).[/LIST]
Intriguing.

I cannot give more details in public.
