Why Do Prime?

Who do prime call Rafael "Rafa" all the time? Is it a nickname, or what?

Yes, Vincent, it is a nickname. I believe he's been called Rafa by many people, including his friends, for many years. If your name is Vincent, do you ever get called Vince? Same thing.

No, no one does, but point taken

It just seems odd that the TV channel call everyone else like their full name, and mostly their last name, then Nadal they call him a nickname.
