Fed and Rafa complain the season is too long with too many matches and both of them do plenty of exhibitions. I guess you can find the energy when there is plenty of money to be earned.

Re: Rafa Nadal vs Dave Nalbandian today in private match

Color me surprised too ... but then HOLD on ... isn't this just their way of practicing, cuz it would be REALLY stupid if they were doing it for just the money ...

My guess is, that this just works out for both of them ... and hey they both speak Spanish so that helps ...

Spot on. If there's anything that sets puts me off about my two favs, it must be this. Playing stupid exho's... and thereafter complaining about a 'too long season' and/or 'being fatigued'.

That event (which has nothing to do with the actual season because it is STAGED) is for a good cause. So, it's all about the money, yes, but for charity.

Thanks Hilde - might soften my rather harsh opinion, heh.
If the CASH goes to a good cause, that's indeed a good thing.

Still can't help but like The Rutles on this particular matter, though.
