Happy 27th birthday to Rafael Nadal

Nadal turns 27 today. And an old 27 too, seeing as he has been full time on tour since 15 years old. Some may be surprised he has not burned out yet. Borg was already retired, doing lines and banging hookers at Nadal's age.

I think he will play to 2016, at 30, but surely not more than that?

Re: Happy 27th birthday to Rafael Nadal

Happy Birthday. Hard to tell when he might be done for good but I don't wish it be soon. He should play as long as he's happy playing.

Re: Happy 27th birthday to Rafael Nadal

wow, such a big cake!

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
