I mean, Fer will look cute any way, but really the hair just made the look complete... :cool:

And really why does what one of the Feli and Fer couple does, the other has to do too - Feli cut his hair, and now Fer. :mad:

You're not the only one, but then again I don't think any guy should have long hair lol.

05-23-2005, 10:55 AM
I also think, that he looks cuter with short hair. Don't like if men have too long hair.Haas for example looks pretty... how better to say... feminine with his ponytail. :rolleyes:

NicoFan
05-23-2005, 01:52 PM
Have to disagree - don't think men with long hair look feminine at all - I love long hair on men. Can't stand short hair on guys - looks like they're working in a corporation.

Oh well...hope that Fer's hair grows back quickly. Just so sad.

About Nanod loosing his hair I'm not sure 'cause I don't seee good pic yet we'll see then but I don't like the idea of cutting his hair. And there's a Polish tradition that it's not good to cut hair before important exam 'cause we are forgeting all we have learn to it. But I don't belive in it honestly :rolleyes: :p

I hope it is extremely one-sided for my own little reasons... ;) Obviously on Rafa's side of course. While I think its great that we have more competition this year, I'm not a fan - at all - of Gasquet's.

Crush him RAFA!!! I would love 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 - unfortunately probably won't happen.

NicoFan
05-26-2005, 04:30 PM
Well there was a quote from Gasquet on Rafa's board...very arrogant kid. I hate the mind games he tries to play during matches. And then "I'm hurt" games. And while I'm sure he has a lot of fans...don't think he's really popular with the other players....especially Rafa. I watched Rafa's match with Gasquet in Monte Carlo - I rarely see Rafa looked annoyed with his opponent - he looked annoyed with Gasquet.

Not to repeat myself from what I said on Rafa's board...but DESTROY him RAFA!!! CRUSH AND DESTROY!! ;)

Rafa is a good person, good kid, I love the way he handles everything...very mature. Gasquet should watch him and learn how it should be done.

Yeah, I do agree with you Carlita ! Richie's at home, and I know the French crowd can be a plus. But I think too Rafa's untouchable these days, so...I just hope the two kids'll give us a GREAT match of the same level as the one they played in MC !! :)

Just got back from RG. Had a great time. Heart-breaking to see Gaudio lose (one of my other favs), and as for Safin, kind of expected it anyway ha!ha! managed to see some of Nadal and Grosjean - better say, I'm just 'ok' with Nadal, neither like nor dislike him, and sometimes enjoy watching his matches - but I must defend Grosjean. I don't think he did anything in particular wrong. The French crowd are the French crowd. And, erm, if I were Nadal, I would have toned down some of the first-pumping antics - wee bit antagonistic.

This was the 5th time I saw them - saw them in the early 8o's, mid 80's, late 80's and in the 90's. Did you buy their last album? So that's Dyran, rabbiys and Fer we have in common:)

So that's Dyran, rabbiys and Fer we have in common:)oooooooh :woohoo: another Durannie!!! :D Simon's my fave!! I saw them 5 1/2 times.... in the early 80's they didn't play holland, so I couldn't go. But I watched Sing Blue Silver over and over and over!!!! :bounce: I saw them twice in 87 and twice in 88 (or 89 can't remember) then in 1993 but that went wrong because Charlie lost his voice :sad: we all got a free pair of Levis to make up for it, which was nice :D (although I would have preferred the concert)

I loved it yesterday....took me back :lol: I have all their albums, including the weird Medezzaland:scratch: and the even stranger Pop Trash :confused: ...... also lots of video's dvd's cd's 12"s 7"s books....etc....

What's your alltime fav Duran song? And Album? Mine are: New Religion and the album Rio

I even got my pic taken with Simon when he was in Holland on his own to promote the Burning the Ground single. Before he went inside the tv studio he signed one of my videos. Then he went inside and we went to the airport to wait for him. I'll scan it when I"m home. Rather proud of it :angel:

Lady Carlita - enjoyed your Duran posts. Yes, I've got all their albums as well. Whenever they released a single/album, it was off to HMV to get the 7 inch, the 12 inch, the picture disc etc. I'm afraid by Wildboys though, I was too broke to buy all 6 picture sleeves! I recently got Blue Silver on DVD. It was great to watch it again after so many years. We used to have a show here called 'Saturday Superstore', and my friend and I waited outside to meet them - they landed by helicopter. They only let about 50 fans in to 'meet and greet' them - it was only when I got home I realised the reason why - it had all been filmed 'live'. Thank goodness I wasn't on the tv, acting like a right fool!

As for fav albums - well, the first is my fav. My fav track is 'Friends of Mine'. On Rio, 'New Religion' is one of my favs, along with 'Last Chance on the Stairway'.

Jenrios
06-02-2005, 08:38 PM

I hope he does play Wimby - he's one S American who doesn't look like he's floundering on grass. I expect you're hoping Larri Passos will coach Nico?

I think thats it too - I think right now its in Nico's mind, and he said that he would get discouraged if he lost right away on the grass. It won't take much right now for him to lose his confidence. But he is saying that he will probably play Wimbledon - but I think thats more of the social side of him coming out - doesn't want to miss anything...lol!

I was hoping for Larri but when Horacio returned to Chile this morning, he said he didn't think that Nico and Larri would have good chemistry together. And I trust Horacio's opinion. So now don't know what to hope for. Actually was hoping he'd get a coach from Spain - they have the best coaches, best fitness trainers, best everything...

Jenrios
06-03-2005, 03:57 PM
hi NF - he's been in Europe a long time, and I'm sure he'd relish the chance to go back to Chile for a few days. Adjusting to grass from clay is so difficult - I think he's wise - it would hurt his confidence if he lost. I doubt de la Pena would be supportive to Larri coaching Nico - it's well known they don't see eye to eye.

Rafa's English is funny:p

Q. Can you tell us how you feel right now?

RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, I am very happy. So I am very happy. I am in the final, for me that is very important. Is a dream for me. Is a dream for me. I can won today against the No. 1 ‑ not only the No. 1 for the tennis, but the No. 1 for the person and for his sportivity (sic).

Q. How did you manage to unsettle Roger so much after he had won the second set? You then came back into the match so much.

RAFAEL NADAL: He is playing very well in the second set. When he play very well, I can't do nothing, no? He have unbelievable forehand. And when his forehand go to my backhand, is very difficult for me. After in the third set, I can escape and I can improve in my game, no?

Q. You had a chat with Roger at the net. What did he say to you after?

RAFAEL NADAL: After the match?

Q. Yes.

RAFAEL NADAL: I say him, "I am sorry." And he say me, "Congratulations. Good luck for the future and good luck for the final."

Is not easy when one player is the No. 1 lost in one semifinal of Grand Slam of Roland Garros when he never won here. And he's unbelievable, no?

Q. You appear to be more nervous in here than you are on the court. Is that an accurate perception?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, I'm not nervous, no. But I try my best. I don't have more (laughter).

Q. In all seriousness, can you assess what you were thinking and feeling going into the match? You had a long time to think about it, it's a pretty new experience for you. Were these things difficult?

RAFAEL NADAL: (Translated from Spanish) He's speaking a bit fast.

(In English.) Yeah, no, I arrive today when I stay in my best tennis in the two weeks, no? I play my best match against Ferrer. I was practicing very good yesterday and tomorrow morning when I go to the court, I am with a lot of confidence for play good tennis.

Q. Have you celebrated your birthday yet today? Do you have any plans for celebrating tonight?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, I don't know, because what time is it now?

Q. 10.

RAFAEL NADAL: Is 10. I have little bit massage late. I want to go to dinner, but I don't know if I arrive too late. I don't know if is possible, no? If I can arrive, I go to dinner and not too much celebration, because in Sunday I have the most important match in my career I think.

Q. Are you going to get any more presents or is this your present?

RAFAEL NADAL: Difficult present because I am in Paris. The people when I know me is in Mallorca, no? My present is my family is here. He arrive yesterday. And for me my best present for today is this match, no?

Q. Will the streets of Mallorca be closed on Sunday? Will everybody be watching the match?

RAFAEL NADAL: I don't think so. So is important match.

(Translated from Spanish) It's a very important match. I hope that the people that watch will enjoy it and I'm always very thankful and I don't want to talk any more English.

Q. You had some easy victories to get to this match today. Is it more satisfying to play your best tennis against someone like Roger Federer, the best player? Do you feel you accomplished more today?

RAFAEL NADAL: (Translated from Spanish) I understood the first bit. I heard "easy matches."

(In English.) I don't think so the matches is easy. The matches is never easy. In the match we have always problems in any time. And I have problems against Ferrer, three set‑points down. And today I have so much problems, real important this, and I can won the match, and that's the most important for me, no?

Q. Were you becoming worried the match might not finish tonight because it was getting dark? Roger said he was having problems seeing. Were you having problems seeing?

RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, is a little bit late. The light is not the best. So I think we will try finish the set, and if he won the set, go to sleep, no? Play tomorrow.

THE MODERATOR: Spanish questions.

Q. It's amazing. When you won the first set against Roger, you started just like you like to start a match, with a break in the first game. You showed you are a great player from the outset.

RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, I started very well, it's true, with a very good rhythm. That's what I wanted. It's been my specialty this year to have an early break in the first set. It's very important to be able to break early. Then with a second break, I could see that the set was looking good for me. Of course, when you win the first set, well, it makes you a little less nervous.

Q. You beat No. 1. Now you're going to play against Puerta on Sunday. How difficult will Puerta be?

RAFAEL NADAL: Well, he'll be difficult, you know, because it's Roland Garros. He's been playing very good tennis to be in the final. It will be a very complicated match. I'll have to play my best tennis and only like that will I be able to win.

Q. A final against an Argentine player, is that a summary of the situation on clay? Or can a player that plays serve and volley win here, like Federer?

RAFAEL NADAL: Federer for me is the best player wherever. Federer for me is an amazing player. When he played well, it was very difficult for me. I was having trouble with his forehand. When I managed to escape his game, that's when I was able to score points.

But Federer always shows that he's the best. Obviously, he could win here.

Q. There was a question on a call. You didn't want to challenge the umpire?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, I've always done that. In Brazil there was a match point against Calleri, 5‑2, 5‑3. Calleri had a shot. The umpire said, "Out." I thought it was good. I said so. I ended up losing that point.

Well, you know, I think that we try to all help each other. I think if we do help each other, it will all be very good for tennis.

Q. At one point in the match, was there a particular point that was very difficult for you?

RAFAEL NADAL: Yes. Not in the first set. The first set was okay. I knew that Roger was going to start playing very well any time. In the second set I started with shorter balls. Obviously it gets very difficult against a player like Federer. I could see that I couldn't turn things around.

Then the third set obviously was very important. He wasn't dominating any more in the third set. I had to stick it out for the first games of the third set. At 3‑4 I could see that things were turning around in my favor. That made me feel calm. I could see I was going to be able to break.

Q. That was the key then?

RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah, that was the key to the match. It was a very important set. It didn't start very well. I saw that I had to play my best tennis so I could win the match.

Q. Apart from your very good level of tennis, you have shown to be very mature on court, as though you'd been professional for 10 years. That's what we always say when we see you. You still need to play a final of a Grand Slam. Do you think that it might be difficult for you mentally? How do you face this mentally?

RAFAEL NADAL: Well, I don't think that I'll be feeling especially nervous on the day of the final. But it's true I've never been in a final in a Grand Slam tournament. I suppose we'll both be rather nervous in the final. But I've played lots of finals this year. I've played even important finals, in Barcelona, for example. All the finals are important, obviously, but Barcelona, Monte‑Carlo and Rome. Then the Davis Cup last year. I can't get more pressure than the one I got last year in the Davis Cup.

Q. Have you seen Federer as desperate today as he was in the previous two matches? It seemed he was a little desperate, he didn't know what to do. A lot of his shots went out.

RAFAEL NADAL: In Miami, yes, the two first sets, and part of the third, I saw him like that. It had been one of the best matches in the year for me and he looked bothered somehow. He had very good moments today, then also he made some faults that made things difficult for him today.

Q. Today you played incredible. You beat No. 1 in the world. The crowd is sometimes still against you. How do you think you can win the crowd over?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, I don't think the crowd was against me. That's not the impression I got. No, I didn't get that impression. I think the crowd has been very good from the beginning of the week. Obviously, they're divided. There's not a Frenchman on court today. The crowd was 50% for me, 50% for him.

Obviously, with Grosjean, the people whistled. Otherwise, the crowd behaved very well and I'm very pleased with the crowd.

Q. Are you going to ask advice to a friend of yours who has already won Roland Garros, Carlos Moya?

RAFAEL NADAL: I don't know. I might speak to him tonight or tomorrow. It's always good to get the support of people who have gone through the same thing, like Carlos Moya. He might be able to support and help me. I might need some of his advice. I spoke to him before the tournament started, and I know that he always supports me. He has always been a very important person in my career.

Q. This is going to be the first final for a long time between two left‑handers. How do you see that?

RAFAEL NADAL: Well, I don't know. We'll have to see what happens on Sunday. I played a few left‑handers. Melo in Brazil almost beat me 4‑2 in the last set. Then I played Puerta in Acapulco. I don't think I played any other left‑handers this year.

Q. How did you feel beating Federer, who is according to your own words your idol?

RAFAEL NADAL: Federer in a semifinal of a Grand Slam, it's incredible. It's incredible to beat Federer. Winning a semifinal is already incredible, and beating Federer is even more amazing.

Q. Did you apologize when you saw him at the end?

RAFAEL NADAL: I said, "I'm sorry for you." He said, "No, no, you played very well." He said, "Good luck for the final. Good luck for the future."

Q. Have you thought about what you're going to do if you win here, something that you can tell us about?

RAFAEL NADAL: Well, whatever happens, Monday I'm going to be in Germany preparing for grass. There will be nothing special. We're in the middle of the season. Obviously, if I win here, it will be a dream come true, and it will help me in the future.

But I'm 18. There's a lot that I still need to improve. I'm try to improve on a daily basis. On clay, this year I've had good results. But I'm going to play on other types of courts, as well. My intention is to play in Wimbledon so that I can also keep on learning.

Q. 19.

RAFAEL NADAL: Sorry, 19, I'm not 18.

That's an understatement...lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't understand why Nico dislikes Horacio so much - Horacio is such a sweetie. Though people that saw them together in Paris said they were getting along fine. So who knows. They both give me a headache when they go at each other...I feel like back in grammar school when they put kids in separate corners... ;)

Nico dislikes Horacio?? Horacio is a legend!!! he is soooo nice...i've met him several times.

and Rafa's interview is sooo cute. i hope his english never improves cos i love how he speaks...much more interesting than a lot of the other boring interviews. those that tease him should try and give an interview in spanish...or even better, mallorquin :devil:
