I think I can put this topic here. I love tennis, and Rafa is my favorite. He's the best player in the world (No 2 on ATP list). I enjoy watching him play with such passion and strengh. Also called ''The King of Clay'', I think very soon he'll be ''The King of Grass'' too. Can't wait for Wimbledon. Also I love his Nike outfits.
What do you guys think about Rafa, and who are your favorites?

I watched that final. As much as Federer is a nice guy, I was rooting for Nadal. I also like Mauresmo (if I spelled it right?), but she just can't seem to do well in France. Some of the "screamers" get to me tho - I can't watch Sharipova, but I would root for her if she'd cut the noise. Wouldn't mind if Blake would finally do really well at a Slam.

I watched Rafa with Del Porto in Queens yesterday. He was just great. He plays every match like it's his last. Even when he fell down, he bounced right back and got a point.

I was so upset when Rafa lost to that French guy. It was such a nerve wrecking match, but maybe this is good couse now he can go home for a few days and relax, but also practice for Wimbledon. I hope Andy wins today,he really needs that.
Also,Houston you said that Federer is a nice guy. Well I must say that Rafael is too. He's a bit shy, and his fame never got to his head. Spanish people in general seem really nice to me.

Sorry guys but i just dont like him. That's me personally. I mean, he never loses to anyone exp Nadal. You gotta loose sometimes too and that's good for your health. :o lol. He has been in the top spot for years now and will for the entire year, and the next, and the next. C'mon, he doesnt even hurt his ankle or hand or anything. He is just the best. lol. See, he is the best , but i'm just fed up with his game. That's me. lol :lol: Awaiting comments from ginnyfan. :D

Ok, everyone has their favorites. Why are you fed up with his game? I enjoy watching him play. I wish he would go into Wimbledon finals again.

those 3/4 shorts must be very uncomfy I mean I play with short loose shorts and even after an hour they are uncomfy :S. I think he's not the best of grass, but on clay yeh he's the king.

Yes, I've always thought of that, those quarter pants must be really uncomfortable while playing. And he is the only player who wears shorts that long. Rafael win this time please!!!!!!

Well, I'm disappointed. I think he certainly could have won it. And it would have shut up the blatently pro-Federer announcers here, mostly McEnroe. I guess there's always the US Open...

It was so close, they both played some great tennis, the best final in years. I'm sure he'll win it next year. VAMOS RAFA!!!!

I felt sorry for Justine, it would have been a better final if she was in it. I'm glad Venus is back, but I love Sharapova too. And I can't forget my compatriots Ana & Jelena. :D :D :D

Hehe, Ginnyfan. Whoever your favorites are, i'm exactly opposite to that. I hate Sharapova, infact wherever i see her, i make moustaches. But, on the contrary, i love Henin, Jelena, and Mauresmo
