Re: >> Rafa news and articles <<

danke für den interessanten Artikel tousledbaby!!! und dein Englisch ist sehr gut...mach dir keine Sorgen!!!

this bit was pretty interesting:

You are in Spain No. 1 and you have outpace all your compatriots. Do you feel any envy from the other players?

Rafa: From most players not. They are just pleased with me. But there are some enviers,too. I will not tell names. I don’t care.

Cash: Nadal will be a king


- I don't care anymore that I had lost with 14 year old kid - said Pat Cash in his last interwiev for "The Sunday Times". 40 year old Australian who had won Wimbledon and Australian Open met with Rafael Nadal in 2001 at Mallorca. Cash was about to play in final of oldboy tournament with Boris Becker, but German got injury. - People had paid, match has to be played - tells Cash - Organizators picked up some boy saying: "That is the best tennis player on island". I was in pretty good shape and I weren't even thinking that I can loose. However I have never seen player who is so determinated and is so great fighter. Lleyton Hewitt with his famous "c'mon" is no one when you see Nadal. Spanish looked like a kid but he was playing like an adult. I was furious after that match. Later I understand that I have lost with someone incredible and unusual. They also told me that Nadal didn't liked to play with people in his age. He thought that matches with "kids" are waste of time. Today everyone are afraid of him and he's not afraid of anyone. And that's good. When he'll win Roland Garros I can tell that I was beaten by king. - said Cash at the end.

Good luck
to my boys

oh lord

Nadal tackles English, one word at a time
Associated Press

PARIS (AP) - Rafael Nadal of Spain seems to get better with every match, and his English is improving, too.

"I'd like to thank the public for supporting me," he said after his latest victory at the French Open.
The phrase could come in handy if the 18-year-old Nadal, who faces top-seeded Roger Federer in Thursday's semifinals, winds up on the winner's stand Sunday.

Speaking English will help the marketability in the United States of the sport's newest star. While Nadal's hectic schedule leaves little time for formal language lessons, he learns a lot from the locker room.

"He invents words. He speaks a funny Spanglish of his own," said Benito Perez-Barbadillo, ATP Tour director of communications and Latin American relations, who has become one of Nadal's language coaches. "From there he learns because they make fun of him in the locker room."

In postmatch news conferences, the charismatic young player switches between languages. Often, he starts in English and apologetically asks after a couple questions if it's OK to speak Spanish.

Nadal told one recent news conference he was feeling a bit "mareated."

"What he meant was mareado. In Spanish, it means dizzy," Perez-Barbadillo said. "Every day he learns a new word."

Pronunciation is something else he's working on.

"In Rome he said, 'I want to thank the poo-blic.' I told him 'public,"' Perez-Barbadillo said. "'They apoyar me.' He wanted to thank the public for supporting him."'

Nadal's competitive drive and ambition help his language skills.

"He wants to learn and do better, like he does on the court," Perez-Barbadillo said.

Nadal is doing pretty well on court with 22 straight wins, all on clay. He's seeking his sixth title of the year in his first French Open.

Nadal's biggest test comes Thursday when he faces Federer, who is 46-2 with six titles this year.

Federer, 23, speaks fluent German, Swiss-German, French and English. But being a linguist is time-consuming, often turning his news conferences into marathons.

Federer starts with English language print media, then French, followed by German. Then radio journalists arrive, followed by TV cameras.

"It really does take a long time for me," Federer said. "Every language I would say, takes 10 or 15 minutes. So it's a little bit of a problem. But I think I owe that to the fans and the experts and the game itself. So for me it's no problem to invest say an hour every day."
