Vamos Rafi!! I cant wait to see how far he can go... now Moya is out (the seeds seem to be leaving early!) This could prove very very interesting .. maybe Rafa can gain another title :worship:

ahhh i wanted to see a moya-nadal semi. but i guess we can't. :awww:

Yes Rafa could win another title it seems, but I think Canas will be tough. and I guess.. if Gaudio was still in the draw it'd be a lot harder.

vamos rafa! :bounce:

Rafael Nadal's tennis did provoke such euphoria, that even the "wave", so famous in those memorable Davis Cup matches, when Mexico had the privilege of being fighting in the World Group, reappeared, and the crowd got excited so much with the tennis and charisma of this spaniard young man, whom was already adopted by the mexican crowd.

Nadal provokes already such fanaticism among his fans that, even groups of teenagers has painted his name in their own chests with brown letters and cheered each one of the so many spectacular points that he disputed with Mariano Puerta, who exhausted, after the enormous effort realized during his previous matches, had to give up and to yield the victory to his rival.

The expressions of support to Nadal, went to such extrems, that many children and young men/women got over the hall of interviews, and barely they could control themselves during the session of questions and answers, just to run later to meet his new idol, in order to request for autographs, to be photographed with him or simply to see him closely, and those who were lucky ... even touched him!

He was pleased with all those demonstrations of affect to him, although already being impatient Benito Pérez Barbadillo, from the ATP, was asking to close the door, and that "they" should allow them work. uselessly he was trying to get him out of the hall by the backdoor trying to return to the players room, without finding support from the Organizing Committee, which already was enjoying the concert that in the beach, it was being performed by the rockstar Benny Ibarra.

The new star of the world tennis, shown how humble he is, specially when he talked on the points that he has in common with whom always has been his idol: Carlos Moyá, destiny and the good tennis of Puerta, didn't allow him and Nadal to face each other this night precisely.

" Uf... Moyá is the best! He is a champion of Roland Garros, finalist of Australia, champion of the Davis Cup, number one ... definitively not, he is the greatest, I am just a young man who begins and who wants to manage to be someone important", declared without false modesty, despite the fact that he turned the crowd astonished with his speed that allowed him to reach some balls that, for most players, are impossible to reach.

He analyzed the only rival who is an obstacle between him and the trophy of el Abierto Mexicano, Albert Montañés " He is a great player, being spaniard we know pretty well each other, he plays fast and is very good, goes for all, and although I have defeated him three times before, I won't beat him always, he well, he can defeat me some day, I just hope that day won't be tomorrow! ".

from his perspective about the brilliant future that many people already predicts to him, even there are some people who already places him as future number one of the world, He said without taking it very seriously, " well, I believe that it's very early to talk about it, I feel that I am playing well and I have a good streak of 9 matches without losing, but in order to be number one still I've to achieve alot more, I am well ranked, but I am still far away to be number 1! ... yes I am far away! ".

something that looks certain is that apparently 2005 year might be "his year", because of that is easy to guess that this could be his first and last Abierto Mexicano: " Well, nobody knows it, it's pretty soon to think about it, although I felt really good at the Latin American Tour".

NOTE: THIS IS JUST PART FROM A MORE VAST ARTICLE, I MYSELF DID THE TRANSLATION FROM SPANISH TO ENGLISH. SO IF YOU FIND SOME TYPOS, YOU ALREADY KNOW WHY. ;)
