This one is for my cousin Cat who loves Rafael Nadal. When she was pregnant with her second son last year I kept telling her to call him Rafa. In the end she went with something better to go with her first son Sasha.
How cute is that? Sasha and Marcel!
Anyway, Cat's Rafa. Won his 9th French Open yesterday, his 14th slam, putting him with Pete Sampras, second behind Roger Federer.
And you know what his uncle and mentor Tony Nadal said about it afterwards?
"If Rafa has done it, I'm sure another can do it. Rafael is not special. Another can do the same. But it's not easy. To win 9 in 10 years is, for me, unbelievable."
Rafa has a Squawking Chicken too!
