they won't overlook it they have it in the contract that you CANNOT wear another brand! they will have a go at him and maybe even with hold bonuses from him! they won't drop him coz he is their major man at the moment but he will get in trouble over it!

Good Luck to my boys

REALLY??!! That's so funny!! Marat & Feli were hanging out together?? So they succeeded in 'protecting' him? Guess the security thought he was one of the public... Lol..

Re: ~* HoT PiX Of RaFa*~

I saw a few people ask if Rafa was catholic or not. Im ASSUMING not for sure they he most likely is...most Spanish people are. Its a very major part of their culture.

VAMOS RAFA!

Actually, Rafael has 3 uncles. The other one is Rafael, who played third division football. Popular name in his family, no doubt..

"I'm not fighting with myself. Oh, my God. That's how I am. You know, the story of the hippo? The hippo comes to the monkey and said, listen, I'm not a hippo. So, he paint himself like a zebra. He said but he's still a hippo. He said but look at you, you're painted like a zebra but you are a hippo. So then he goes, you know, like I want be a little parrot. So, he put the colours on him and he comes to the monkey and said but, sorry, you are a hippo. So, in the end, you know, he comes and said I'm happy to be a hippo. This is who I am. So, I have to be who I am and he's happy being a hippo." - Marat Safin

In America, it's quite common for first-born sons to be named after their fathers---in which case, the names are legally differentiated by "Jr." and "Sr." However, I think it's less common in Europe. Rafa's father, Sebastian, is the first-born, and I think his uncle Rafael may be the second-born.

The significance of the name "Rafael" to the Nadals could be historic. Rafa's grandfather is also Rafael. But while Rafa is "Rafael Nadal Parera" (his mother's family name is Parera), his grandfather is "Rafael Nadal Nadal."

The Nadals have lived on the island of Mallorca for seven centuries, which may explain why they are such a large and powerful family there.
