Rafa crying after match

Did anyone else getting NBC coverage catch the short part of Rafa crying while sitting in his chair after the match? Just shows a different side of him, aside from his getting pumped up after the win.
They showed it right after the "Powershot" , it was part of the clips of Rafa...it was before the trophy presentation.

*Richard Gasquet* *Rafael Nadal*

*Kim Clijsters* *Lindsay Davenport*

Re: Rafa crying after match

Yeah, I saw that. He said after that it was the first time he cried after a match. He also seemed to get a little choked up during the trophy presentation, but he held it together.

I wish NBC would have just stayed there and quit cutting to commercial.

Re: Rafa crying after match

Yes, and he almost wanted to cry as they were playing the Spain national anthem.

Funny, how he was nodding his head as if he were thinking the words.

Re: Rafa crying after match

I cried when I saw him cry - of course, I was already crying because he won...lol!

And NBC was totally annoying...still mad about it - missed so much because of the endless commercials...

Yeah, that was special that he was crying. Shows how much winning the FO meant to him.

Looks like they've recently programmed robots to cry. Too bad you missed it

I've seen Sampras cry a few times, too.

We all know the only real robot on the tour is Agassi. (Look at him walk!) It's just that he's had his head parts waterproofed so he can shed a few from time to time. He has to maintain the illusion, you know.

We've seen Agassi cry too. French Open 1999 he was BALLING.

sorry...but seems that after that he lost all his "tears"....

when he won US Open he was looking more like the guy that lost...
since that... I saw he screm few times (cause this years is not the best of his career) but never cry....

so....probably he lost all his bagage of tears in UK
