    Seven Things I Learned from Lindsay’s Rundown of Rafa’s Blog:
    1. Lindsay can make even the most random, boring things interesting and funny. I’ve read the whole thing once earlier and it was all very goofy.
    2. Lindsay does read MTF, but then who doesn’t.
    3. Whoever translated Rafa’s blog to English, tried real hard to make sure it looks like he has written it himself.
    4. Now we know how everyone in that “how well you know your top seeds video” knows Rafa doesn’t like tomato and cheese(really? there are people who don’t like cheese)
    5. Lindsay’s 11 year old cousin might have really, really bright future in tennis.
    6. You can’t mess with Rafa. If you do, he’ll make sure the whole world knows it. He’ll still hate you and make you apologize in press conferences 6 years later.
    7. Can’t write anymore. All this talk about pasta, pizza, chocolate and cheese has made hungry. Lunch time!

    Lindsay thank you so much for this post. I quite enjoyed it and shared pieces with my non-tennis initiated friend. I must say I also found the line about saying thank you to ones practice partner to be utterly hilarious. Thanks again.

    Your blog series is very entertaining. Thank you.
    I am always amazed at how poorly some of these high level athletes eat. They should include a nutritionist in their entourage as well ! Can you image what a healthy eating Rafa would be able to do? LOL

    Fernando says some nice insight into the pure innocence that is Rafael Nadal. One of the most genuine and kind top tier athletes who has ever lived. He has not changed. Wss a bit long though.

    The juxtaposition of his gentle demeanor off the court with his fiery determination on the court is part of his appeal, no?

    Dominance on the clay is a foregone conclusion. We are playing better than ever. But we have our eyes set on SW19 to avenge the Rosol aberration. And it will be done.

    I am Fernando @vivafernando

    Loved this. That bit about his dad holding him after he won is so precious.

    I want to eat pizza now. Thanks Rafa.

    Thank you very much for this blog. Sorry, I mean post. Really enjoyed reading it.

    To be honest I’m not sure who also wrote blogs in the past but maybe it wouldn’t be bad idea to see what diva JJ had to say 🙂

    You like “After practice it’s customary for players to say to each other ‘thanks a lot’ and we both did that.” I like “Spadea’s father is on the left with his hands.” I’m glad he has his own hands. Wait, or did he have Spadea’s hands???
