Nadal Has Pull Back Home

Striking while the iron is hot, Rafael Nadal met with the Mayor of Manacor, Toni Pastor, this week. Pastor announced that before the end of the year construction of a tennis complex with eight courts would begin on municipal land. One court would be reserved for the exclusive use of Nadal (hopefully he'll at least let Carlos Moya share). Most of the courts would be clay, but they also left open the possibility of putting in one grass court.

Re: >> Rafa news and articles <<

Thanks for sharing, veyonce! I wonder if the money to build the courts is coming from the government or from Rafa. I think Rafa wouldn't mind others using "his" court as long as they were respectful of it and moved to another court when Rafa is there to practice.

Re: >> Rafa news and articles <<

Rafael Nadal also made it into Sports Illustrated's double summer issue as part of their featured list of 25 guests to their summer party. If you're an SI Extra member, you can read the article at that link.

While in Bastad this week, Rafael Nadal did a photo shoot and interview with Vogue magazine which will run in the September issue. (I'm pretty sure Nadal has never looked at a Vogue magazine - I'm thinking his teenage buddies in Spain will have a fun time teasing him.)

I can't get Vogue magazine here but I'm sure one of you will be very nice and will scan the pix

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead
