*Ouch* His little grunts are really loud...

And to add to the clip, there's also the whole match he played against Moya when he was 16 (in Hamburg). It's split into 11 parts, starting with this:

Re: Clip of Rafa playing at 13

It's funny how Moya points out that Rafa has put his stuff down on the wrong side. Moya looks so sure of himself and Rafa looks so nervous yet we all know how it turns out.

You can tell how much Nadal has improved his serve. There's almost no difference here between 1st and 2nd serves.

Re: Clip of Rafa playing at 13

What on earth does he sound like!? It's amazing to see a little kid playing like that though.

Love his racket work
Piglets are usually higher pitched.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Clip of Rafa playing at 13

Dang. He even had good racquet speed when he was 13. He was one quick little feller, wasnt he?

What 13 year old DOESN'T sound squeaky? Still, it was pretty funny.

Re: Clip of Rafa playing at 13

Darn... his raquet speed was nuts even then!

Still grunted with his stokes- funny.

I like a lot of players.
