In preparation for the US Open, top tennis players Rafael Nadal and David Nalbandian display some friendly "rivalry" in the lobby of New York City's historic Jumeirah Essex House

Not bad! :yeah:
I'm wondering if Rafa has such a huge topspin in table tennis as well :devil: :lol:

Pretty many players play table tennis from time to time waiting for their matches. But some others also prefer their laptop, Playstation, Ipod or whatever ;)

Does Nadal take 35 seconds between points in ping-pong? ;)

David should have practiced instead of playing ping pong :tape:
he's two sets down vs Berrer :o

At least they could say that they played against each other on table tennis :p

^ Actually I take the above back... yesterday evening when I passed by there were a couple of black SUV's parked outside (the weren't marked US Open though) and they stayed there for the 20 minutes or so I scoped the place out.

I think I saw some one with the build, hair and walk of Nadal come out the hotel wearing a pink shirt and jeans that were too long. Couldn't see clearly though because I was on the central park side of the street.
