Now I'm

Rafa THINKS (he can improve his serve &) he's been serving badly for 15 years acc to Toni? Or Toni thinks he's been serving badly? Pardon my Spanish.

Only if you think that most men are insecure.

Why would it be nice for a woman to be a tad younger and why would male experts prefer it that way?

We'd have to ask the maqle experts, no? The female experts are welcome to express their opinion too, of course. We here don't discriminate.
LOL it was just my opinion. Maybe Andreea prefers younger men.

Btw it's Gulbis vs my boy in St Pete's today.

I'm asking you since it's your assumption so quit hiding behind male experts.

Well if you ask me then I prefer a bit older men, like around 5 years or so. Max age difference 9-10 years, more than that USUALLY doesn't work in the end, but there are always exceptions.

I'm curious about the Spanish quote too, not quite sure how to translate it.

Maria, the match is starting now. (Wish I could watch it.) May the best one of our boys win

It's "One of the best qualities of Rafael is that he's still thinking that he's gonna improve his serve and there are 15 years already since he is doing it badly"

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Always by Rafa's side on the way to clay & hard court dominan

This round of quotes is actually good. For a change

Quote:
"if you form in a good way a player's character, he'll be able to face important moments even if he knows he's not that good"
Quote:
"there are players that, after trying for 1/2 hour a shot without good results, decide that they are never going to learn it"
Quote:
"there are persons whose head doesn't allow them to bear six or seven consecutive failures"
Quote:
"For this is better to show a player to be like Rafael not to play like Roger. Because trying to imitate Federer is impossible"
Quote:
"It's very difficult to be a Federer... or a Messi...you are born with this gift. But being a great player, you can achieve that"
Quote:
"Imitate Federer or Messi is almost impossible. But you could learn to improve always and only when you have a good character"
Quote:
"I have no problem telling my nephew that Federer is better, or djokovic(), or Murray"
Quote:
"There are players for who it's easier to hit the ball or they hit it better, i see nothing wrong with this, I'm not afraid"
Quote:
"Accepting the reality is the first step to solve the problem and improve"

LOL so Toni thinks/says Rafa's been serving badly. Mwahaha, and whose fault is it then Toni, hasn't he been coaching Rafa for those 15 years?
Bless Rafa for "always trying to improve, every day, no?"

EHHHH? How so? I was merely having a little laugh at tio Toni while pointing at the obvious. Hilde told him to shut up and she's not a hata? Heck, you yourself laughed at it.

P.S. Congrats Evita! Gulbis to win the St Pete's Open.

I'm just relieved Ernests pulled it out in the end. I wish Zopp all the best but if Ernests had lost to him here...

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Always by Rafa's side on the way to clay & hard court dominan

Just got back from my 6 week Europe holiday yesterday.

So much more love for so many places in Europe now
Loved Germany a LOT more than I expected to and the biggest surprise package for me was how much I fell in love with Belgium!!! What a beautiful country

Being back in reality sucks big time though. Going back to work on Monday after this long is gonna be torture
