Default Re: Nadal reaches first ever Hard Court Slam Semi Final!! Painfully.

Dunno where he said it in press conference or in another interview (i'm gonna try a little traduction if i make mistakes feel free to tell it )

"Tres años con puntuación de número uno y ser el número dos hace que me sienta muy feliz, pero por otra parte se me ocurre una palabra que no la voy a decir", dijo Nadal al comparar la diferencia que siempre le ha sacado Federer. "Si, es una putada" ( poooor Rafa ) , apuntó luego, "pero no lo lamento porque he compartido parte de mi carrera con el mejor de la historia".

"Three years with enough points to be number one and being number 2 make me feel happy,but on the other side it makes me think about a word that i wouldn't say" said Nadal comparing the difference that have always separated him from Federer . "Well it's a f*cked up situation/pain in the (famouzz) ass" (not sure abt the traduction tho )he explained then "but i won't complain about sharing a part of my career with the goat"

I don't want to put anyone's enthusiasm down but I am terrified abt this semi. I need reassurance. I have too much work and can't stay up to watch. Well maybe it's a good thing.

You won't be getting any reassrance from me.

Tsonga's on a roll, has huge firepower and contempt for Rafa's game.

l_mac: you and I must be the most pessimistic of Rafa's fans. But all for good reason I think I am glad I won't be watching.

Don't be afraid. Just think that Rafa has already done better than last year.

And this is the other way I like to look at things! I never expected a semi, even with his good draw. It's been a great tournament for rafa fans

I think this semi is like a penalty in football, meaning he has a great opportunity. Rafa can score, but he can miss also.

Rafa signs a fan's bra, then checks her out. I don't think this means he isn't still a virgin though.

Maria, that means around 10.30 our time?

Anyway, enough with all this "not wanted to jinx him". Remember, if Rafa reach a GM semi, he'll reach the final too
