Well, dear Aquarianbabe, in this new video he looks a bit like he put on some weight, but just a little bit
He visited the Venezuelan Tennis Federation. At 0:40 those practice balls.. I used to give such balls to the dogs for playing
Today, another 'boring' Nadal Final at the Roland Garros.. I looked up Willy's performances there in the past, he made the QF 3 times, first in 2002, where he lost against the later champion A. Costa in 5 sets, from 2:1 sets lead
, after beating Moya in 5 sets and World-Nr1 Hewitt in earlier rounds. Next year he lost in R1 in 5 sets, but again vs. the later winner Gaudio. 2005 another QF loss from 2:1 lead vs. finalist Puerta. After the ban he came back strong in 2007 with another QF, lost vs. Davydenko.
What a pity that he couldn't play a Final or at least a Semi at RG, he had pretty good chances for that! He was such a fighter.
