Photos of Nadal at Rogers Cup '08 Final ## HQ pictures added; see OP ##

A small selection from many photos I took at the Rogers Cup final yesterday. Thought they might be appreciated here.

Update : I have uploaded the large versions (2816 x 1872) of all my good snaps from the final on flickr. You can find them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2068379...580596/detail/

Update : Here are some more HQ photos I took of Nadal at the Rogers Cup '08 semi-final vs. Murray. They are not my best work; however, the first six show his pre-match ritual - rather interesting: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2068379...936328/detail/

(I hereby declare all these photos to be in the public domain. Use them in good health.)

Note : I have an unblemished record as a Federer fan, but I do not hate Nadal (see my sig). I have no tolerance for haters on either side of the Fedal Divide. Although I'm not overly fond of Rafael's game, I admire his work ethic and achievements - you can't question results. So, take this thread in good spirit.

... oh yes, I don't like Kiefer.

Verily, the Eyes of Nadal shall gore thy soul...
...but the Hand of Federer shall smite thee.

Re: Photos of Rafael Nadal from Rogers Cup 2008 Final

thanks a lot peacemaster

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Can't say mea culpa really, 'Ray'. The forum keeps freezing.

Re: Photos of Rafael Nadal from Rogers Cup 2008 Final

I've noticed for some time that posters feel the need to state their "fan status" to protect themselves against attacks, or put disclaimers stating "they're not hating". Kinda sad it has gotten to this.



Indeed, at the Nadal forum HQ's would be much appreciated.

Perhaps a Nadal forum Mod can merge this in with his pix thread if they want to?

The black hole rampaging again, deleting posts for no reason. Disgustingly childlish.

Re: Photos of Rafael Nadal from Rogers Cup 2008 Final

Thank you Peacemaster for the picture posts. If you took any of the awards ceremony I would enjoy seeing a few. ESPN left its viewers without getting the enjoyment of see Rafa receive his trophy. A brief interview with Brad Gilbert did very little to let us share Rafa's "thrill of victory."

VAMOS RAFA ***VAMOS RAFA*** VAMOS RAFA

I recorded the last game and Nadal receiving his trophy + his speech in the video mode of my digi cam (instead of taking many photos). The quality is quite good (you can understand every word) if I don't compress the file. Would you be interested in seeing that?
