Its still mind-blowing how young he is. Hes barely 20, but he plays like an expierenced veteran 20-something. Hes humble, down-to-earth, intelligent, and mindful of the game's history. No matter what you think of his style of play on the court, you can't not like him as a human being. A great person for the game for many years to come.

normally 20 is when a tennis player plays his best or is at his peak physically

Actually, ATP rules say that a player's age is the age he was on the first day of the tournament.

hahahahaha oh evil one :devil:

:bdaycake: Happy birthday!!! He's had a great career as a teenager, and now he's 20! Woo hoo! And yes, he is still counted as a teenager in RG, because he was 19 when it started :)

Happy birthday, Rafa! And if you weren't standing in the way of the Roger slam, I would totally want you to get your seventeenth title and your second grand slam and all that. Even as it is, if you win it, you thoroughly deserve it, and I won't begrudge it to you.

But I'm afraid I'm still cheering for Roger.

Is it necessary for everybody to say "Happy birthday"? it gets so annoying, and he isn´t reading this anyway...................
