It’s been a rough several months for Rafael Nadal. There was that knee injury. And then a stomach virus that kept him from the Australian Open where, SPOILER ALERT, Maria Sharapova dominated Venus Williams today and when I first read the headline I thought it said Serena and I almost tripped.

Anyway, here’s Rafa in Barcelona training again and preparing for his comeback -- February 11 at the Brazil Open. This is for my cousin Cat. We had a sleepover last night. And while Lance Armstrong bitterly disappointed us both, we know that Rafa never will -- NO JINX.
