Welcome back to the tour Rafa, and it was a hard victory, but the people in Båstad are very happy to have him play there.

Hopefully he can complete the rest of the year without any more major injury problems.

nice one my old friend rafa!

07-06-2004, 04:59 PM
well done, Rafeal! :D

I was really sad that he was gone for some time as he injured but the time passed faster than I actually thought and so it's a nice surprise to see him playing and winning again now.

07-06-2004, 05:03 PM
Get into the groove, Rafael!;)

07-06-2004, 05:13 PM
Nice to see him back! I hope he will improve his form and get back to how good he was at the start of the year :yeah:

Good to see Nadal back on tour, it will be interesting he plays Santi " The Clay detective" Ventura in the next match, so it will be tough for him as Santi is in very good form. For Nadal I hope the rest of his year is injury free.

He smashed Ventura 6-1 6-2 and now meets Gaston Gaudio in the quarter finals ? Can Nadal take out his 3rd French Open champion after beating Moya and Costa last year?

07-08-2004, 04:58 PM
;) I vote Nadal just not to jinx Gaudio :lol:

07-08-2004, 05:21 PM
Sorry, I need to ask what was he wearing?

07-08-2004, 05:23 PM
I bet against Gaudio :o , so go kill "the Believer", Rafa :tape:

07-08-2004, 05:35 PM
I tipped Gaudio, but after his performance today I wouldn't be surprised if Nadal won.

07-08-2004, 05:54 PM
Could be interesting. I think Gaudio will win, but not easily - maybe 6-4 in the 3rd.

07-08-2004, 05:55 PM
what wa snadal wearing!

07-08-2004, 05:56 PM
I assume Nadal was wearing clothes.

07-08-2004, 06:05 PM
I hope Rafael will win. I know he can do it.

07-08-2004, 06:21 PM

Damn it! Search the web and try to find pics by yourself! :devil: :devil: If you want to be tennis pro and win a gran slam one day :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :nerner: , you should at least be able to do that, even if you are only 5 years old... :devil:

07-08-2004, 08:03 PM
Nadal wear blue sleeves shirt and white shorts.

07-09-2004, 07:08 AM
Hell yeah. Rafie boy can do that. In looks he already beats Gaudio by a mile and on court he´ll also give him a whipping. Yay! Vamos Nadal!

07-09-2004, 07:09 AM
I assume Nadal was wearing clothes.

Clothes? He wasn´t naked? What a shame! :o

07-09-2004, 07:21 AM
C'mon Gaston!! :) I voted Nadal, so i wont jinx Gaudio too. :o

07-09-2004, 07:56 AM
