So, I finally got my first look at Nadal last night. I was very impressed with the young man, although he's got some holes in his game and things he needs to learn yet. Nevertheless, he's the most impressive 17 year old I have ever seen.
He's also has a presence and sense of himself that is unusual to see in one so young. He walks onto the court with the swagger of a big, muscular John McEnroe.
The Spanish players turned out for him. Carlos Moya and his girlfriend sat through the first set only two seats away from me, I might add. And then two other Spanish players who I didn't recognize, because I am the worst at recognizing players, sat down right next to me. We offered to move so they could sit close to the other Spanish guys, but one of them said. "Don't worry about it. It's all right here." They stayed for the rest of the match.
White shorts.... very tight.... he kept pulling at the crotch in the behind. a lot!! And a red sleeveless shirt to show off his arms.
And his nice wide bandana headband, white with a pale pale gray pattern.
