Reading through Rafael Nadal’s new book “Rafa”, I liked this quote so much and it seemed so appropriate to this website that I put it on the home page. Here it is again:
“Toni and I watch a lot of tennis videos, especially of my games, both ones that I’ve won and the ones that I’ve lost”
Rafa has a great attitude, saying at one point that one thing he really notices is how good his opponents really are, and that it’s pointless to get down on himself when his opponent makes a great shot. It’s a great book, and I highly recommend it. The thought processes Rafa goes through are not unlike those of the average player, in that he faces the same problems as most tennis players. Emotional as well as strategic. At the time I’m writing this, I’m watching Rafa and Ferrer play the finals of the Barcelona Open. The book gives me a completely different perspective on Nadal’s tennis game!
