Nadal and Nalbandian pass the time during the rain delay with some Ping-Pong

In preparation for the US Open, top tennis players Rafael Nadal and David Nalbandian display some friendly "rivalry" in the lobby of New York City's historic Jumeirah Essex House

Not bad!
I'm wondering if Rafa has such a huge topspin in table tennis as well

Pretty many players play table tennis from time to time waiting for their matches. But some others also prefer their laptop, Playstation, Ipod or whatever

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Rafa probably just drop-shotted him.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Does Nadal take 35 seconds between points in ping-pong?

David should have practiced instead of playing ping pong
he's two sets down vs Berrer

At least they could say that they played against each other on table tennis

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:
