Let’s tie at Christmas
This is for my cousin Cat. I miss her. Especially at Christmas as she’s in Toronto and Jacek and I alternate our holidays – one year here in Vancouver, one year back home. Cat loves Rafael Nadal. And here he is with Roger Federer today posing at a press conference in support of their respective charities.
Yesterday they played against each other in Zurich – Federer won and the proceeds were directed to the Roger Federer Foundation.
Today in Spain it was Rafa’s turn. He took it in 3 sets to benefit Fundacion Rafa Nadal. So we’re all friendly for Christmas.
It kills me how Rafa is standing. He’s always so shy, almost unsure. Tennis is such a lonely game. And I suppose that’s why he keeps getting in trouble for always looking at his coach for advice. Then of course somehow he finds a way to rip a backhand down the line and gut out a win. That’s the difference I suppose. Insecurity is definitely a quiver killer. But not when it’s overcome, and in such spectacular fashion. Rafa is ending the year as the world #1.
Stop yelling. I hear you.
I know. You’re either a Rafa or a Roger. I think I’ve been clear about this before – I’m a Rafa. Are we fighting?
This is Cat’s son Sasha who some of you often ask about. Check him out with Elmo. Don’t you want to be that happy?
