and here he smiled at me and said "give me your camera I will take the picture!"

I'm so happy that you cannot even imagine it
I took pix and i'll post them later of course
Is this you in the next video?

Edit: Can I just say that those bodyguards may be rough but they're only trying to do their job. They have to make a quick assesment of the situation and of the purpose of people approaching the person they have to protect. It's a tough call and it's often better to be safe than sorry. Some of those people can get quite crazy (remember that crazy fan of Graf attacking Seles)?
Now, don't get me wrong: you seem to have perfectly nice intentions but I'm just trying to put myself into the place of those bodyguards. I've seen footage of how crowdy and pushy people get around Rafa in Roland Garros so a bit of protection is needed, I think, and most people simply won't give Rafa space just by gently asking them.
