Re: Seppigate narrowly avoided with a 6-2,6-3 scoreline! Rome 2009 Thread

this appears to be a general overview of the tournament with shots of various players coming and going from the crowded locker room during the rain delays. however, there is a shot of rafi bending down, and therefore it makes the thread.faymoose ass

Wildegirl, could you please post a link to the part where Rafa knocked over the bottles?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

8:30 pm Rome time. Good. I might actually be able to see some of this match. I also thank you for the clip of the water bottle takedown.

rafa forum update:
loyal rafatards were very worried that the seed exodus started by muzza might continue with the possibility of a repeat of seppigate bringing everyone's to the foreground. haters congregated to try and distract the loyal rafatards and nearly got robin in their trap.

however, a timely reminder by yours truly that we need to be with humble like uncle toni tells us meant that the power of the prevailed and rafa lives to face another round

That was such a great point. It was so funny to see Rafa cutting his celebrations short when he realized the water bottles had fallen.

Re: Seppigate narrowly avoided with a 6-2,6-3 scoreline! Rome 2009 Thread

this quote, possibly from rafito's seppi presser (which is still not posted anywhere ) reminded me of mikey's signature calling rafa mr. adorable

Quote:
To be honest, I’ve never asked autographs (smiles)…
I was certainly privileged to have an uncle in the football world (he played for Barcelona), who was friends with other professional players. But I’ve never demanded anything. Maybe it’s because I’m too shy…Anyway, I know that if it had been the case, if I had wanted to ask autographs, I would have appreciated the sports person to take the time to sign. It’s for that reason that I do my best to take out time for the kids and for people who come to see me and who wait for me at the gates. It’s always fantastic to see to what extend people support us. I come from a little town, and believe me, I’m not used to that, I don’t think that it’s “normal”! (smiles). Sometimes, sadly, we can’t give many autographs but it’s not that we don’t want to. We follow the rules: the security team asseses if the movement of the crowd is getting dangerous (I don’t always know why because it’s usually kids…) and they ask us to move on. But what is certain; no matter if it rains or not, no matter if there’s a huge crowd or whatever, if I can stay to give autographs, I will systematically give them as much as possible.
