Rafael's adorable little girlfriend??...

Did you guys notice, that when Mariano and Rafa had to accept their trophies, they were accompanied by little ball girls. And when it was Rafa's turn, he grabbed her hand and walked hand in hand with her to the steps, and then patted her head, and then she ran off to her little friends and they were smiling and giggling with her. But Mariano just walked in front of his ball girl and didnt acknowledge her.

Anyway, I just thought that was really cute! A great sports hero can know how to instantly make someone's day. I mean, that girl will remember that for the rest of her life. And if she grows up to be a famous tennis player too, she can always talk about that in interviews ;).

:kiss: Thanks for pointing that out. It takes a person with heart to make that sort of gesture in a time where he might rightly be distracted by his own joy and triumph.

The new myth on this board apparently is that Nadal is a jerk. Thanks for once again showing that the guy has passion and heart both on and off the court. :)

I liked the fact Nadal didn't thank any sponsor in his speech ! It's more sincere at least...contrary to the women yesterday... :)
What an great honour to receive the trophee of Zidane's hands :hearts:

I can see why Mary thanked her sponsors. She must be very grateful to those who continued to support her.

Yeah, a nice gesture by Nadal. Actually, all the finalists had a kid walk them to the podium. In fact, when Mariano went up there, I noticed he wasn't holding that girl's hand and was wondering why. ;)

Nadal is such a cutie. He's freakin hilarious b/c simply, he acts his age. Like this ruffling of the girl's head, how he signed the camera lens and then grinned devilishly when he scribbled it all out until the camera was full of lines (!!!), and how he sat on the trophy table for the photo op dangling his legs and kicking them back and forth. :angel:

Zidane :drool: *sizzle sizzle!*

The tennis is in good hands, isn't it?
Not just men's with Rog and Rafa, but also the women's too with Justine and Kim back on tour.
I can't hate Rafael. He brings so much to the game, not just great tennis but such an adorable personality and fair sportsmanship.
Looking forward to the second half!

Agree Sue!!!! :) Fed is so worthy No 1 and Rafa next to him! :worship: :worship:
Rafa is just adorably sweet, :p all you haters.

I was wondering if Nadal was going to hold her hand because Puerta didn't. Cute gesture by ruffling her hair. :)

Mrs. Guga isn't going to like that.

I think the Rafa is just a nice thoughtful person. That sort of gesture tells you about someone's upbringing and character.

Massu is a prick. At the Aussie Open after he beat Dupuis, there were a few hundred Chilean supporters in the crowd, who had waited around most of the day (until 10:30pm) following the Gonzalez match earlier on. They were asking their NATIONAL OLYMPIC HERO to come close so they could take photos of him, but he simply turned his back on them and walked off, not signing a SINGLE autograph.

I don't care if he was just coming back from injury, he's just not a nice guy...

I mean if you know the Chileans at all Gonzo is the more popular of the two, but that's not the point there are much worse than Massu.

That's the thing the player doesn't sign for 1 person is a jerk, then again a lot of that seems to be timing as well.

I didn't want him to sign for me - I'm not a huge fan of his at all... but he could have displayed at least a little gratitude to the Chilean community who waited 10 hours to see him play.
