Yeah, I couldn't work it out either; I listened to it over and over.

Here's a translation of the rest though; I originally posted it on the vamosrafael.com board:

  • He then went on to say that although he wasn't playing his best, he felt good on the court. He knew it would be a difficult match because of the conditions (wind, etc.), although the humidity was a challenge
  • The win was good for his confidence, and now he can rest until Saturday
  • He said the wind stopped him from going for his shots as he normally would; he was dropping the ball shorter
  • The wind also moved the ball about a lot more, so he had to change his positioning more than usual, so that he'd be able to strike the ball correctly
  • He then concluded by saying that the main thing was that he was in the 3rd round... (the interview fades out here)

Re: ~* HoT PiX Of RaFa*~

I think he said "Si me importa si como he jugado yo" (After the woman said "Spanish questions please"). It means "If I care how I played". I think he said it as if saying "Ask me if I care how I played"... maybe he got asked that a lot in english, that's why. It makes more sense when you listen to the reporter afterwards saying "Okay so, how did you play?"

So the conversation would've been like this:
"Okay, spanish questions?"
"Si me importa si como he jugado yo"

In english:
"Okay, spanish questions?"
"If I care how I played"

It's sorta hard to explain but... got it? I am sure that's what he said, just not that sure if thats what he meant you know lol

As for what the commentator was saying, don't ask, as I'd have to listen to it at least another 2 times
the commentator was just saying that the smile had been wiped off Rafa's face and that was not like he usually is...he wasn't as strong, was arguing with the umpire etc. then he talked about blake and how he had overcome those paralysis problems etc and that he was now playing robredo who had beaten grosjean. then he talked about the other top american hopes like agassi and davenport who knocked out the last spanish woman...

nothing really that interesting lol
