Rafael ‘Rafa’ Nadal was at David Letterman’s Show last Thursday, August 25, 2011, to promote his latest book “Rafa” and the upcoming  2011 U.S. Open Grand Slam.

Ask about Roger Federer, Rafa uttered “.. Somethimes it’s better if he’s not there!” – That cracked me up!!  LOL! 😀

The tournament starts on August 29 to September  11. Rafael Nadal is the defending U.S. Open champion, capturing last year’s men’s singles title over Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in four sets, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2. At age 24, the top-seeded Nadal became the youngest player to complete the career Grand Slam in the Open Era.

I’m excited to watch the 2011 U.S. Open games and I’m looking forward to seeing my number one Tennis athlete play his matches, this coming week!

Muy buena suerte, Rafa!! 🙂

Artois Championships

Final result:

R NADAL (Spa) v DJOKOVIC (Ser)

7-6 (8-6) 7-5

Rafa Nadal wins the Artois Championships beating No. 3 seed Novak Djokovic in two sets, 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 making him the first ever reigning French Open Champion to win at the Queen’s Club since Nastase in 1973 and the First Spaniard to win since Andres Gimeno in 1960.

Next target,  the Wimbledon Championships!

Rafael Nadal or “Rafa” is simply amazing! I’ve watched him improve his game, tournament after tournament. I am impressed by his tenacity and dedication. This young bloke simple has what it takes to be the next no. 1 seed.

He’s Roger Federer’s Achilles heels in clay.

The just concluded French Open 2008 ended spoiling Federer’s hopes of claiming his latest bid of completing a career of grand slam. 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 for Rafa Nadal!

Rafa’s 28 wins to 0 loss in the Roland Garros made him the second man to win four consecutive French Open titles, next to Bjorn Borg.

Last Night at the Artois Championships semis, Nadal stormed into his first final at The Queen’s Club after an impressive 7-5, 6-4 victory over four-time winner and defending champion Andy Roddick.

Nadal will face Novak Djokovic, my other favorite player, in the finals tonight.

Hell, yeah, I’m a big fan!

Vamos, Rafa!
