i didnt make the icon or anything, but i can tell you how. :)

assuming that you have photoshop -- select the area you want to be tinted another colour (like the tangerine box), and then while having it selected, click on brush --> put the mode in "colour" --> pick a tint colour you like, and just go over the selected area with your brush. :) im not good at explaining, but still. :D

The Dream Team vs the Manacor/Mallorca/Spain Selection
Credits: nou.amic

The match kicked off at 18.30 under stifling conditions on the new artificial turf municipal pitch at Son Severa. The Dream Time wore the Barcelona strip and the Selection the Spanish national team's red shirts with yellow trim and dark blue shorts.

Miguel Angel Nadal captained the Dream team during the first half which was played at a leisurely pace but spiced with lots of slick passing. Guardiola, Stoichkov and Goikoetxea were outstanding while several of the older players could not stand the heat and soon had to be substituted. Rafael Nadal did not play during the first half but could be seen cheering on his side from the substitutes' bench and there was a flurry on the sidelines when he and other substitutes got up to do some warming up and stretching exercises just before the end of the first goal-less 35 minute half.

The beginning of the second half was delayed for several minutes while the pitch was cleared of autograph hunters gathered around there idols. Rafa was beseiged on all sides by people wanting to have their photograph taken with him and his uncle.

Rafa, who was wearing the number 9 shirt of the Spanish national squad (Adidas incidentally unlike the Barcelona strip which is Nike!), took the kick off for the second half which was played at a faster rate as the sun had gone down a bit. He played the full 35 minutes and, once he got into the game, was fairly active on the left wing (he's a leftie at football too) and in the centre of the attack. He certainly held his own among the professional footballers. The star comedy act apparently was on the Selection's bench with the coaches Javier Clemente and Juan Antonio Comacho, both ex managers of the national squad, encouraging him with advice like: "Don't put so much 'top spin' on it!", "Use your favourite 'passing shot'!" and "Who said you couldn't play on grass!"

Miguel Angel captained the Selection this time and took up a position in midfield which is where he played his best games for Spain. Julio Salinas and Andoy missed several good chances of goals for the Dream Team before seven minutes from the end a neat combination in the penalty box between Txiki Begiristain and Guardiola finished with Txiki stroking the ball into the net to put the Dream Time one up. But three minutes later Rafa ran on to a long pass, sold a neat dummy to the defender and rocketed the ball into the back of the net with his left foot. Goal de Rafa Nadal!!

"A very good 'smash' shot," commented a smiling Clemente afterwards! "Always has to shine," joked his uncle Miguel Angel. It was a truly fantastic goal and a 1-1 draw was a fitting score to end the match with.

The players and especially Rafa had a hard time getting through the crowds of admiring fans to the dressing room when the final whistle blew. Rafa and his uncle were both interviewed off camera at the end of the match.

The end of the homage celebration to Miguel Angel Nadal ended in a golf tournament at Pula Golf on Sunday. After translated the article using online translators, the article's a bit weird.

http://www.diariosport.com/vivo/recursos/fotos/foto_117618_CAS.jpg
La saga Nadal ha encontrado en Rafa el relevo de su tío Miquel Angel en la élite del deporte. El golf es sólo un hobby para ambos.

Translation: The Nadal saga has found in Rafa the relief of uncle Miquel Angel in the elite of the sport. Golf is only hobby for both.

Un torneo de golf solidario, colofón al homenaje a Nadal

La sociedad médica ARA, que cuida enfermos terminales, fue la otra gran protagonista del evento.

El homenaje a Miquel Angel Nadal que se celebró el pasado fin de semana tuvo su colofón final con la disputa del Torneo Benéfico de golf M.A.Nadal que reunió en el espectacular campo de golf de Pula a los ex jugadores de fútbol más ‘enfermos’ que existen por este deporte.

Dejando a un lado la competencia que ninguno de ellos puede sacarse de encima, el torneo fue especialmente memorable para ARA, una asociación de médicos, psicólogos y voluntarios que atienden a aquellas personas con enfermedades terminales a acabar sus días dignamente.

Al final del torneo, Miquel Angel Nadal entregó más de 21.000 euros a esta asociación en presencia de la vicepresidente del Govern Balear Rosa Estaràs.

Fue la mejor manera de poner punto final al homenaje a un mito del ‘Dream Team’ que ha reunido a su alrededor a los más ilustres personajes y figuras del fútbol de hace unos años. Empezando por Johan Cruyff, siguiendo por Hristo Stoichkov y acabando con Txiki Begiristan y Eusebio Sacristán, entre otros.

Por cierto, destacar que Esteban Vigo y Urbano Ortega fueron los grandes triunfadores de la matinal llevándose los premios en liza, en un ambiente de perfecta armonía al que se sumó el ex piloto de rallies, Carlos Sainz, quien también quiso acompañar a Nadal en su más que merecido homenaje.

También tomó parte en el torneo de golf Rafa Nadal, pero en esta ocasión no se hizo con la victoria. Denle tiempo, seguro que si se pone acaba arrasando. Al menos así lo ha demostrado ya tanto en el fútbol como, indiscutiblemente, en el tenis.

Translated Article, a bit weird...:-

A match of shared in common golf, colofón to the tribute to Nadal

The medical society ALTAR, that takes care of terminal patients, was the other great protagonist of the event. The tribute to Miquel Nadal Angel that was celebrated the past weekend had final his colofón with the dispute of the Beneficial Match of M.A.Nadal golf that reunited in the spectacular golf course of Polishes to the ex- football players more `enfermos' than they exist by this sport. Leaving to a side the competition that no of them can remove from above, the match was specially memorable for ALTAR, an association of doctors, psychologists and volunteers who take care of those people with terminal diseases to finish their days with dignity. At the end of the match, Miquel Nadal Angel gave more than 21,000 euros to this association in the presence of the vice-president of the Balearic Govern Pink Estaràs. It was the best way to put a full stop to the tribute to a myth of 'Dream Team' that has reunited the most illustrious personages and figures of the soccer of years ago. Beginning by Johan Cruyff, following by Hristo Stoichkov and ending Txiki Begiristan and Eusebio Sacristan, among others. By the way, to emphasize that Esteban Vigo and Urbano Ortega were the great triunfadores of the matinal taking the prizes in heddle, in an atmosphere of perfect harmony to which the ex-pilot of rallies added itself, Carlos Sainz, whom also loved it to accompany more to Nadal in his than deserved tribute. Also it took part in the match from golf Rafa Nadal, but in this occasion one did not take control of the victory. Denle time, insurance that if it is put ends up devastating. Therefore it has at least demonstrated it already as much in soccer as, unquestionably, in tennis.

Nadal eyes U.S. Open from Germany


STUTTGART, Germany (AP) -- Rafael Nadal is still busy in Europe showing he is the king of clay. That hasn't stopped the French Open champion from thinking ahead to the U.S. Open, however.

The 19-year-old Spaniard will try to win his sixth straight title on his favorite surface this week at the Mercedes Cup. In two weeks, Nadal leaves for Montreal and Cincinnati to ready himself on hard courts for the U.S. Open, which starts Aug. 29.

"If I play good at those two tournaments, if I play my best tennis going into the U.S. Open, I will win a lot of matches there," Nadal said. "It is very important to me."

John McEnroe has called Nadal the most exciting teenager to hit the scene since Boris Becker won Wimbledon in 1985, but until now all of Nadal's eight career titles have been won on one surface -- clay.

Still, his last two hard court efforts showed his game may not be as limited as some former clay court stars like Gustavo Kuerten and Sergi Bruguera.

At the Australian Open, he pushed second-ranked Lleyton Hewitt to five sets in the fourth round. That was followed by reaching the Miami final, where top-ranked Roger Federer also needed five sets to down the teenager.

The third-ranked Spaniard also wants a successful hard-court campaign because it will determine if he finishes the year ranked No. 2 ahead of Hewitt. As far as the U.S. Open goes, he knows that he is a dark horse for the title.

"Federer is always the favorite. Then comes Andy Roddick and Hewitt," Nadal said. "Federer is better than anyone. To get to that level, I will have to play good on hard court, on clay, on grass. I will have to improve my serve."

Nadal said not much has changed since he won the French Open in early June.

"I'm still the same person. Some things are better, some things worse," he said, then shrugged.

Nadal may be eyeing the U.S. Open, but the Spaniard is also bent on keeping alive his 29-match clay winning streak -- the ninth longest in history. Titles in Stuttgart and next week at Umag, Croatia, would leave only Guillermo Vilas, Bjorn Borg and Thomas Muster boasting more straight wins.

He will face either Kuerten, who has struggled since a hip operation, or U.S. qualifier Hugo Armando in a second-round match Wednesday.

"I have confidence from my results, but I know I can lose every match, so I will give 100 percent tomorrow," Nadal said. "I know sometime I will lose."

Think Rafa would inform Nike beforehand?? Even if he didn't, think Nike will close 1 eye since Rafa's becoming more and more popular... And Rafa did a lot of advertising since he's dressed in Nike gear most of the times..

they won't overlook it they have it in the contract that you CANNOT wear another brand! they will have a go at him and maybe even with hold bonuses from him! they won't drop him coz he is their major man at the moment but he will get in trouble over it!

REALLY??!! That's so funny!! Marat & Feli were hanging out together?? So they succeeded in 'protecting' him? Guess the security thought he was one of the public... Lol..

In America, it's quite common for first-born sons to be named after their fathers---in which case, the names are legally differentiated by "Jr." and "Sr." However, I think it's less common in Europe. Rafa's father, Sebastian, is the first-born, and I think his uncle Rafael may be the second-born.

The significance of the name "Rafael" to the Nadals could be historic. Rafa's grandfather is also Rafael. But while Rafa is "Rafael Nadal Parera" (his mother's family name is Parera), his grandfather is "Rafael Nadal Nadal."

The Nadals have lived on the island of Mallorca for seven centuries, which may explain why they are such a large and powerful family there.

Usually "powerful" means the family has been in the area a long time and if you've seen the pictures from the inside of their house, it looks like his family is pretty well off. So powerful- probably means they have a lot of good connections and have an important family last name.

The Nadals are known to be a down-to-earth, high-achieving family with very strong values. They are also financially well-off. Their wealth is based in substantial real-estate holdings in Mallorca, as well as several jointly-owned business, from restaurants to the largest window company on the island. While two of the brothers, Toni and Miquel Angel, are professional sportsmen, Rafa's father Sebastian runs the family businesses and his Uncle Rafael, a lawyer, handles their legal affairs. Uncle Rafael is also active in politics and is an advisor to the mayor as well as a member of the town council of Manacor.

The Nadals are not an ostentatious family and don't flaunt their money at all. But they are certainly well-off. One small sign is that their summer estate is a series of connected properties for each of the brothers along the ocean front.

For Rafa personally, the most significant indication of the Nadals financial stability is that the family was able to refuse the Spanish Tennis Association's offer to educate him from an early age at the special high-performance tennis academy in Barcelona. This is where all the other members of the "Spanish Armada" were trained.

But Rafa's family wanted him to stay home during his formative years so that they could oversee his education and his values. And we can see what a fine job they did. The fact is, they had the financial ability to provide him with the equivalent of the Association's school right there on Mallorca. But although the Association helped, the training wasn't easy, as Uncle Toni has often said. The biggest problem was finding partners on the island to play him at his level, as opposed to the constant competition from his peers that he would have had in Barcelona.

I hope this explains a bit of what I meant in my previous post.

Cool car!! Now you have to learn how to drive chico!! :lol: :lol:

STUTTGART, Germany, July 24 (Reuters) - Teenager Rafael Nadal was given a new sports car as part of his prize for winning the Mercedes Cup on Sunday but he was not allowed to drive it any further than centre-court.
At the age of 19, the Spaniard has already been crowned French Open champion but he has yet to pass his driving test.

"I don't know if I'll be able to do this," the shy Nadal said after being invited to drive the prize from the tournament sponsors across centre-court. "I've never done it before."

After being shown how to turn on the ignition, he drove the car forward a couple of metres before the photographers swarming around him slowed his progress.

Gaston Gaudio, beaten 6-3 6-3 6-4 by Nadal, looked on frustratedly after losing in the Stuttgart final for the third time.

"He took my Mercedes," the Argentine sighed. "Maybe I'll have to think about another brand."

Nadal sealed his berth in the year-ending Tennis Masters in Shanghai -- the youngest to qualify for the tour championship since Andrei Medvedev in 1993. He also pulled out of next week's tournament in Umag, Croatia, for undisclosed reasons.

Cos I believed he withdrew from Croatia Open a day before the start of the tournament which passed the deadline tennis players have to inform the organisers. The player has to give valid reasons for withdrawing from the tournaments, if in the case due to medical reasons, they have to travel to the tournament for an on-site medical examination by the organisers' doctors to verify that they have a valid reason to withdraw from the tournament otherwise the player will be penalised and fined by ATP. In Federer's case, he's able to post an announcement on his official website for his withdrawal from the Montreal tournament as he has not surpassed the deadline. Hope this clarifies your confusion..

Excerpts From the ATP Rules Book:-

"If the withdrawal occurs after 12 noon, Eastern Time, USA, on Friday before the Tournament Week or, in the case of doubles, after the sign-in deadline, then the withdrawal shall be considered a Late Withdrawal and shall also result in a Late Withdrawal Fine, unless the injury on-site examination provisions apply. In addition, in the case of a 96-draw Tournament, if the withdrawal occurs after the sign-in deadline for the Qualifying or after the time the Main Draw is made, whichever comes first, the player shall receive a Late Withdrawal Fine, unless the injury on-site examination provisions apply.

Think it came with the 24 July 2005 El Pais papers... There's another photo but it's the same one previously posted wherein he was sitting on a ledge..

Btw, what's the subject heading??

hello jazzy :)
I am sure that you are a great girl, but why are you so hung up on Rafael Nadal??? He probablyy does not even care. Dearie...I don't think he is that good looking. He does not have much intelligence. Looks are just a surface thing, our soul is the beauty within. Rafael has never won a game on grass. He has been hailed as the 'king of clay', now i have been a fan of tennis since i was a child. I had not gotten into playing it, as i had a different life path. But Does not all know, A REAL TENNIS PLAYER WINS ON BOTHS SURFACES, be it grass, clay or the other. Trust me he is not that good. Stop wasting your time, so much, and please do something with your life. I am here only because it is mine duty to be so. I am sure you are a great girl, i believe all women are beautiful. But sweetie, take it from me ( i had earned more than you could buy america ) BUT! ( not with my looks,alone i had to battle and fight mentally exaust myself and my privacy has been violated for reasons of intrusion to see what i look like ) THAT IS NOT FAIR! maybe we should just slow down a little. hmmm I am sure Rafael appreciates your support. But that he cares?? I am not so sure. anyway, i dont have many friends, females avoid me, just because of the reson stated above. If you read carefully you too will notice:( How old are you?? and maybe we can be net buddies.?? if you like? Don't get me wrong i believe Rafael has potential, but he needs to loose the egoistic problem. Not everyone is out to get him.
Keep well. and i hope to your response.

The important thing in life is not the triumph but the fight; the essential thing is not to have won but to have fought well.
