funniest video ever--zabaleta and the cobbler

For those who don't troll the nadal and zabaleta boards, zabaleta has a hilarious show "TenisPro" in latin america about being a tennis pro and fanboys and -girls post them in said forums.

This one clip is HILARIOUS--zabaleta goes to an old cobbler in italy to try to get his shoes repaired, and...well, I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it.

Classic. I've been harassing The Tennis Channel to ask them to carry the show.

Re: funniest video ever--zabaleta and the cobbler

I live in Costa Rica so I can see the show on Foxsport LA.
It's rather funny, but I have to say the first time I saw it I was a little surprised and confused. It has absolutely nothing to do with sport. And I was expecting some show that showed actual tennismatches.

None so far . I'm sure they could get it for cheap; and subtitling wouldn't cost much either. It's just such a great peek into professional tennis--and it's just such FUN. Pure fun.

I didn't see this chapter, but I've been told they made a great chapter about Marcelo Rios's crazy antics in the tour.

Some news; here's what the tennis channel sent me:

Please tell the presenter (do you mean zabaleta??) that if he can clear it with Fox LA then he should send it to them. I have the agreement form and can send that to you or him as well. I'd help write the proposal if need be.

This show needs to be seen by more people!
