Iker and Rafa are good friends. Not sure about Christiano, though...On the top right you can see Carlos Moya, by the way.
True. Funny story about Moya. He's from Mallorca just like Rafa Nadal. They've been friends for a really long time and even though Moya never reached the heights of Nadal, he was considered one of the best in the world at one point. He even held the NR. 1 ranking for like two weeks. Anyway, back to the story. When Nadal was only 16 years old he had the privilige to practise with Moya and Moya admits today that sometimes Nadal won. He said this was always a huge wake up call for him, being the top 3 player in the world and at the same time beaten by a rising young talent.
.Cool! I actually met Rafa once, very shortly. I was entertainer in a hotel on Mallorca, and I met a tennis teacher there. He was also quite a talent when younger, but decided not to go for a tennis career. Obviously all these tennis guys on the island know each other, and so he also knew Moya and Nadal quite well. One day Nadal was practicing at his tennis club, and so I met him (well, shook his hand and said hello). My friend told me this boy was going to be huge one day. I thought he was exaggerating. Now I know he wasn't. Now I wish I wouldn't have talked to this seventeen-year-old boy a bit longer.
That's totally awesome. I'd sure like to meet Rafa one day. Your friend must have really known a thing or two about tennis if he predicted success for Nadal that early.
