Another proof that Nadal is nothing but a Justin Bieber of tennis... Won't do no good to the sport

Re: Rafa Chat Thread - Total And Utter Rafa Mania In Belgium - Vol. 69

I have pictures but as I said before the weekend, my camera is very average and inside that hall, the camera was having trouble focusing (a problem many had in there, you need a good camera for a match indoors).

As a result, many of my pictures are too blury but I'll see if I can find a couple of decent pictures to post.

At one point, we were having a discussion in the Nando/Feli match about whether Nando was wearing any underwear at all (as you do), so I took a close-up (as close as I could get it) for further examination. I'll post it for further discussion here if the pic is any good but my opinion was that he was wearing something underneath.

Don't be jealous, JM.

We did see a cardboard cut-out of Rogelio in the Wilson booth (I encouraged others to turn it around so that it would face the wall and yes, they listened to me )

Yeah, right.

As I said, there were many, many men there for Rafa as well. It was a mixtures of people. One group was a bunch of men in their 50s, coming from The Netherlands and one of them told me that they were ready to follow Rafa everywhere.

I've seen fangirls Hilde, you won't make me believe that those old men outnumbered them, just impossible... Really poor Rafa, he doesn't deserve to have to suffer such horrible fans

And the statement that Nando and Feli would have a full brain at their disposition seems to me like utter exageration

Only jealousy can make you write such ridiculous things, JM.

It's alright, Rogelia has more than his share of pedantic, horrible, condescending fans as well.

But you're not going to ruin my excellent mood.

You must have missed the part in Hilde's report where Rafa was so happy with the fans and the reception that he wanted to play for them on Sunday So don't be sad for him

Yeah yeah Hilde, sure those teenie fangirls is what makes the sport so exciting tennis didn't exist before them and won't exist anymore once they get bored of the bicipidies...

Andreea, I did try to take Ferrer pictures for you but he wasn't very visible and when I saw him, he was too far away. People who have met him said that he was very friendly and warm.

Thanks so much for the report Hilde.
Total and utter Rafa mania indeed. But those fans are kinda scary methinks, I wouldn't enjoy such a crowd and I always wonder how Rafa is so calm handling those huge crowds, I'd really be afraid of a stampede or smth and he really needs security guards from those hysterical people.
He is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO great with all the kids though, that's just amazing!
