The Spanish annotations in the video:

Han sido dos semanas importantes y positivas, voy a intentar hacer un buen torneo en Madrid.

Despues de jugar dos semanas con las maximas exigencias la evolucion ha sido muy positiva.

Tanto en Monte-Carlo como en Barcelona no ha tenido un gran desgaste y las rodillas han respondido bien, ya veremos…

La altura de Madrid nos afecta un poco, todos los Master 1000 son dificiles pero llegamos con dos victorias que nos dan moral y tranquilidad.

Animicamente a todos nos va bien ganar.

Seguir jugando como lo estoy haciendo, agresivo, con intensidad, con la problematica de altura de Madrid.

Estoy un poco cansado de hablar de la tierra de color azul, ya veremos a partir de manana en lose entrenamientos como va y voy a intentar adaptarme los mejor posible.

Which mangles to:

Two weeks have been significant and positive, I will try to do a good tournament in Madrid.

After playing two weeks with the maximum requirements evolution has been very positive.

Both Monte-Carlo and Barcelona has had heavy wear and knees have responded well, we’ll see …

The height of Madrid affects us a little, all Master 1000 are difficult but we got two victories that give us moral and tranquility.

Mentally we all do well to win.

Keep playing as I am doing, aggressive, with intensity, with the height of Madrid problematic.

I’m a little tired of talking about the land of blue, and from tomorrow we will see in practice how it goes and I will try to adapt the best.


Barcelona wrap up - kind of clippy (on my computer), but nice for those of you who can’t see these on The Tennis Channel.


Rafa does social media:

  • Rafa shared a photo of him practicing on Manacor at the “club of my life”. He heads to Madrid tomorrow.

Sounds like Rafa’s foot was bothering him a bit and he had to take a break from training for awhile. At least, that’s what the mangle of this makes me think. Anyone got a better read on it? At any rate, seems that he’s now getting ready for the North American hard court season. Maybe a bit behind the schedule he wanted, but working hard.

Love Toni in a “You CANNOT be serious” shirt.

(Thanks for the heads up, Inés.)

Nice Wimbledon towel, Rafa.

Wimbly ramblings:

Rafa on Facebook:
Rafa’s had quite the day on Facebook. He’s thanked Wimbledon for seeding him as they should and promised he’ll do his best. He posted a picture of himself laying on his massage table and waiting for “the rain stops.” The rain stopped for a bit and he and his friend Feli (Feliciano López) had a practice session. Oh, and they took a photo during another rain shower. Lastly, he and Tuts went shopping for free Nike gear and returned with three large suitcases and one white plastic bag full of stuff. (And, brace yourself…I think Rafa’s tennis shoes might actually be laced up! Shocking!) I am so loving FacebookFiendRafa - thanks for giving me a good night.

Rafa’s not the only one feeling chatty, Pico blogged today and seems like he’s smartly going to take advantage of Rafa’s access to the good practice courts tomorrow. (Mangle) I’m not commenting on the photo, but if he’d like to pose Rafa similarily tomorrow, I wouldn’t complain.

Here’s a story about a Mallorcan promo in which Rafa’s participating. (Mangle) And here’s the video:
