Cool ¤ Rafa in South America! ¤

Hey guys,
I know we have a general chat/cheering thread, but I thought we'd just have a separate one for the time Rafa spends in South America...firstly in Buenos Aires, then Costa do Sauipe, then Acapulco!!!

so first up is Bs As and he plays Calleri in the first round. In doubles he's playing with Beto Martín against Corretja/Guzman...hope he can do well at this tourny!!

VAMOS RAFA!!!

Re: ¤ Rafa in South America! ¤

Great idea, Emilita!
Rafa doesn´t play on Monday.
Vamos Rafa!

Carlos Moya: "I've known Rafael since he was 10 and day after day he keeps impressing me more and more."
Tommy Haas: "Rafael is a great player. It's amazing how strong, how successful he plays at this age..."
¡Vamos Rafa!

Proud supporter of Tomas Berdych!

Good luck also to:

Moyà y Nadal entrenan ante 500 personas: ¿El anticipo de la final?


El ATP de Buenos Aires, que comenzó el sábado en su fase clasificatoria, revela una vez mas el apasionamiento que tienen los aficionados en Argentina por el tenis.

Tras realizar el sorteo en la tarde, los españoles Carlos Moyà y Rafael Nadal se cansaron de firmar autógrafos en las inmediaciones del estadio central. Pasadas las cinco de la tarde los ibéricos comenzaron a entrenar intensamente en el court central.

En el comienzo, mientras ambos ajustaban sus golpes, asistían a la práctica un puñado de niños. Pero cuando corrió la noticia que las estrellas rutilantes del torneo se hallaban a toma y daca en el histórico estadio, muchos dejaron de asistir a los partidos de la previa y se acercaron extasiados a contemplar a los tenistas ganadores de la Copa Davis de 2004.

Moyá mostró su fantástica derecha y hubo jugadas de alto vuelo. Nadal respondió con entrega y buenos reveses. La intensidad del peloteo fue mojando las camisas de ambos, mientras el público seguía ingresando a las plateas.

Moyà y Nadal se gastaron bromas, descansaron unos minutos a la vera de la cancha y retomaron con brío el entreno.

Las gentes aplaudían la finalización de cada jugada como si se tratara de un match oficial y tras la finalización de la práctica se retiraron más que agradecidas.

La jornada del sábado con entrada libre fue magnífica y de postre vimos a Moyà y Nadal juntos. Dúo que difícilmente se repita por estos lares.

Algo que quizás no volveremos apreciar, aunque por como se dio el cuadro, ambos podrían llegar a la final. Y tenis no les falta para ello...

>> Rafa and Carlos trained in front of 500 people...they were joking around, signing autographs etc...

Re: ¤ Rafa in South America! ¤

His next match is against Potito Starace. A good player but I think Nadal will win. He brings so much to the court, not only talent but spirit and heart too.

Vamos Rafa.
