POLL: who loses their hair first out of Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal?
Cute Rafa’s reaction at answering question about difference about playing indoors :)
Of course you do, sunshine boy.
during a radio interview, Rafa made a noise with drinking a glass of ice water but he didn’t realise at all XD

"I used to play tennis with Arthur Ashe."
“Really? How’d that come about?”
“I was an architect, and my office used to be off Columbus Circle. I lived on the Upper West Side, and every day I’d walk home through the park. One day— this was in 1967— I decided to take a different path, and I heard the sound of bouncing tennis balls. I investigated, and discovered a man “warming up” on a tennis court. He noticed me watching through the fence, and asked if I knew how to play. He told me that he had a foursome scheduled, but his partner had backed out. He only introduced himself as “Artie,” but at this point I knew who he was, so I ran all the way home and grabbed my racket. I’d played tennis since the age of six, so I was very good myself, and we ended up winning the match. At the end, Arthur said: ‘Would you mind if I called you again?’”
Cincinnati 2013 Champion
In the category of “weird coincidences, or how tennis players keep on bumping into each other on tour”: at the 2010 Rogers Cup, Vasek Pospisil and Milos Raonic teamed up in doubles and met the team of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in the first round.
3 years later, we have the exact same four players as Rogers Cup semifinalists who will be facing their former doubles partners tomorrow. No word yet on whether the fact that the Canadian team actually upset the Novak-Rafa duo 3 years ago will come to be of significance too…
