Adorable!

It's funny to watch the interview part because babyNadal showed many of the same facial expressions while talking that he still has today as a man.

So funny to see him so skinny!

Re: a 12-yr old Nadal...

If he was that skinny in 1998 how did he put on so much muscle in such a short time? Usually a player's natural body type is apparent from the start. Nadal's body type changed completely.

I don't know abut you but I've never seen any particularly muscular twelve year olds.

From what I can make, he says that his opponent played much better than him and that he couldn't do anything. He played like in the previous days as he had wanted but ...

Then he says that on Monday and Tuesday from 9am to noon he goes to school (not clear about this) and from 4 to 8pm he plays tennis.

He says that he also plays football but it is only for fun.

That was his first interview for the Spanish TV. Not bad for a 12 year old.
