Re: Keep the winning spirit alive- Rafael Nadal at the Beijing Olympics

Yay Rafa Congratulations, it was a good solid match, especially in the second set

I'm losing in the MIT next match Thought he was going to play Murray, but it's Melzer now. Should be a win

Re: Keep the winning spirit alive- Rafael Nadal at the Beijing Olympics

should be possible @ channelsurfing.net as it's the same court as rafa's singles.

and it wasnt igor who played bad, rafa was very solid, moved him all around the court, used some nice angels and kept volleying volleying VERY well. and some lovely smashes after bounce from the baseline. playing on this level he has chances to do some harm against djoke...

You sneaky thing, putting that Fed photo next to Rafa's. The person who picked Roger's photo must have been a hater.

yay, for once they use a flattering photo of Rafa in those things. But Roger's isn't so flattering

Vamos Rafa
if Novak's opponent could take care of him tomorrow that would be great.

I can already see the US draw, with Rafa and Djokovic up for a potential semi final match.

Rafa, Rafa and...Oh wait..Rafa!!

Wow. How did I miss the "Hottest Guys of the Olympics". Thanks for posting. This was a perfect thing to do with a break.

But no Phelps shirtless photos?
