Nadal won the 2005 Roland Garros title not 2004!

As usual, you're sooo bad, TF.

I say they both win. They're young major winners with the goods to appeal to diverse audiences. More power to them. With Rafa's English progressing so well, I hope to see his 'Sure Shot' commercial on a continuous loop soon.

No, it's the "Power Shot" I saw it for the first time during non-tennis programming. It just aired tonight after CSI (the No.1 show in America).

In the eyes of the US, Maria wins, hands down. Purely for the sex appeal factor.

they should date

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Same here. I often get snipey and correct people who insist that she was an awful player. I imagine that few of them are in the top ten at anything as she once was

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Yeah, I'd like to see that commercial. Rafa blasting shots onto the backwall, spelling "Rafa Was Here, No?" with tennis balls. Then slowly reach to take out his wedgie, before reaching for his Camera. Then he'd look at the camera, saying, "Every Shot Estas Un Shot Con Power, No?" Then flip the camera man off, and say "Here is your power shot."

I voted for Maria btw. Her attitude reminds me of a young fearless Seles, with an ever louder grunt.
