*Ouch* His little grunts are really loud...

And to add to the clip, there's also the whole match he played against Moya when he was 16 (in Hamburg). It's split into 11 parts, starting with this:

Is it me or does he sound like Venus Williams? Especially during the serve.

It's funny how Moya points out that Rafa has put his stuff down on the wrong side. Moya looks so sure of himself and Rafa looks so nervous yet we all know how it turns out.

You can tell how much Nadal has improved his serve. There's almost no difference here between 1st and 2nd serves.

What on earth does he sound like!? It's amazing to see a little kid playing like that though.

Rafa is the best....ever.

Dang. He even had good racquet speed when he was 13. He was one quick little feller, wasnt he?

What 13 year old DOESN'T sound squeaky? Still, it was pretty funny. :)

Darn... his raquet speed was nuts even then!

Still grunted with his stokes- funny.
