Nadal treats fans to practice session in Cincy last night.

After Safin self-destructed and the Young/ Monfils match left the fans feeling robbed...Nadal stepped in to save the evening....he and Uncle Toni went through a practice drill on Center Court for a few hundred fans who wouldn't leave....For around an hour we got to see Nadal in a workout drill ...shot after shot.....the fans even applauded his winners. At the end Uncle Toni had Nadal sign balls and hit them up into the stands ...As I left Nadal was still signing autographs.What a grand gesture that reallly changed the mood on Center Court .

Re: Nadal treats fans to practice session in Cincy last night.

yeah, rafa appreciates his fans a lot, always sign autographs for them

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.

Classy Nadal & Uncle Toni.

Nadal and Federer are total class acts, it's nice to have them at the top.

Oh yea, tons of players would have an unscheduled hour long practice at 9:00 at night and then sign autographs for half an hour afterwards.

He certainly planned to practise anyway, that taking place on center court or on the roof of his hotel doesn't make that a difference to him

Obviously not, but it makes all the difference to the fans, that´s the point. I´ve never been a huge fan of Nadal, but he seems to be genuinely a nice guy and, as somebody said already, a worthy champion.
