Djokovic after his Madrid 2009 Semi with Rafa: “Next time I’ll probably take two rackets on the match point and try to hit with both of them. It’s frustrating that when you play so well you can’t win.”

The last pic of both of them facing each other so close.... Was wondering how does Rafa chooses his doubles partner... Seems that he have played a number of players for his doubles matches...

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.


really? their powerful in mallorca? like how? if you don't mind my asking...

Usually "powerful" means the family has been in the area a long time and if you've seen the pictures from the inside of their house, it looks like his family is pretty well off. So powerful- probably means they have a lot of good connections and have an important family last name.

VAMOS RAFA!

Re: ~* HoT PiX Of RaFa*~

The Nadals are known to be a down-to-earth, high-achieving family with very strong values. They are also financially well-off. Their wealth is based in substantial real-estate holdings in Mallorca, as well as several jointly-owned business, from restaurants to the largest window company on the island. While two of the brothers, Toni and Miquel Angel, are professional sportsmen, Rafa's father Sebastian runs the family businesses and his Uncle Rafael, a lawyer, handles their legal affairs. Uncle Rafael is also active in politics and is an advisor to the mayor as well as a member of the town council of Manacor.

The Nadals are not an ostentatious family and don't flaunt their money at all. But they are certainly well-off. One small sign is that their summer estate is a series of connected properties for each of the brothers along the ocean front.

For Rafa personally, the most significant indication of the Nadals financial stability is that the family was able to refuse the Spanish Tennis Association's offer to educate him from an early age at the special high-performance tennis academy in Barcelona. This is where all the other members of the "Spanish Armada" were trained.

But Rafa's family wanted him to stay home during his formative years so that they could oversee his education and his values. And we can see what a fine job they did. The fact is, they had the financial ability to provide him with the equivalent of the Association's school right there on Mallorca. But although the Association helped, the training wasn't easy, as Uncle Toni has often said. The biggest problem was finding partners on the island to play him at his level, as opposed to the constant competition from his peers that he would have had in Barcelona.

I hope this explains a bit of what I meant in my previous post.

Re: ~* HoT PiX Of RaFa*~

"Little Rafael", perhaps, or "Roland Garros" Rafael, better
