Hi! My name is Veronique. I started following Rafa when he was 14 yrs old along with Gasquet. We had a thread called Up & Comers on a different message board and some one kept us posted on his progress through challengers and futures. Then he beat Moya, beat Federer, won his 1st ever ATP Tour level tourney in Sopot 2004. The mental toughness he displayed in winning the 5hr Roma 2005 marathon final over Coria completely won me over.
It's amazing how much success he's had since then. 8 GS and counting.....
I really hope he can go the distance at the USO 2010. I'm planning on attending this year.

Hi everyone.

A special welcome to the new folks on this thread, to Marvin, Rafa (born_on_clay), Topspin, Ariel, JolánGagó and Veronique.

I hope we all can have a nice chat here

I thought so too before I was thrown out of the other thread by some nasty people. But whatever. I just made this thread instead

Same here. I think Rafa is really good for the sport. His spirit, his humbleness, his respect for other players. He's just an amazing guy who brings so much to the sport. Tennis wouldn't be the same without him. And I don't want to bash Federer. But I just like Rafa's personality better- Sometimes I think Fed comes across as a bit too arrogant. But that's just my opinion. I like Rafa because he is so humble, and he always say positive stuff about the guy he's playing against. He's always nice to his opponents and gives them credit, whether he himself wins or lose.

I hope so too. I think that's what all his fans are hoping for, him to finally win USO and get a career grand slam. I really hope he can do it this year, and I guess his chances are even higher, with people like Del Porto out. I'm not sure if Davydenko is injured or not, but he's not as good as he used to be. Djokovic and Federer have also been in a slump, but they usually are quite good on hard court, so you never know. Berdych is really good too. And Soderling is also one to look out for. But I think it's possible for Rafa to beat them. He's in a great shape, and he has the possibility to win if his knees hold up. He was smart this year to skip some tournaments, and by doing that, protect his knees. It's funny that most people say that Rafa can't play hard courts, when he has won many MS tourneys and even a slam title on hard court! Sure, it is his weakest surface, but I believe he can do it if he plays his best tennis.

Glad you like it! I was thrown out of the other thread, they were quite nasty to me. So I started this instead, for Rafa's REAL fans. Those people in the other thread were mostly trolling anyway.

Please keep us updated and take some pics if you're going to USO. I hope you get to go. It sounds fun, and who knows, maybe it'll be Rafa's 9th slam title. It would be amazing. I always dream of seeing him at a tourney, but unfortunately I haven't gotten the chance to it yet. I hope I can some day though. Would be awesome to meet him after being a fan for so long

Hi, everyone! We have our same hero here. I hope he can win US open this year, and I have chance to attend the event during September.
I have supported rafa since 2005, but I regarded myself as a rafatard after Winb 08.
VAMOS RAFA!

Hi Veronique. I think I remember you from back from some old, now defunct, tennis boards. I certainly remember seeing you on this forum for a long time. The old ATPworld and now MTF.

Oh, and I agree with the person up thread who suggested taking off the "no haters allowed." 'cause, ya know, there are some players, I just don't like.

Firstly, I made this chat. I meant that ALL Rafa fans are welcome, or even people who can be sivil about him. All Rafa haters posting will be reported. You can hate other players in here, just not Rafa. This is a chat for his fans, and I hope all will respect that. I was on the other thread I thought was for his fans, but people started to attack and bash me, and said I should get out of the thread. I did, and made my own, JUST for his fans. A place his fans can chat.

I am serious about this.. any negative, hateful posts about him will be reported.

Hopefully he will continue to dictate like he did on grass for the hardcourt season.
hi topspin. I've already noticed you're a great fan of our hero

I think the biggest concern is moving on hardcourt doesn't seem natural to Nadal. That effects every part of Nadal's game if the movement isn't quite as sharp as on clay or grass.
affirmative. he's too much passive on hardcourts and lets his opponetnts to take the ball on the rise

Hey all. Huge Rafa fan here. I'm not the most prolific of posters but every now and again I like to come out and play.

I'm really looking forward to the HC season this year, I think Rafa is going to spring a few 'surprises' along the way. Can't wait.

Play really well in Toronto and lose early in Cincy perhaps? If I know him well, he's not going to skip an MS event if he's fit.
