In defence of Rafa ...

Despite all the negative criticism handed out, I do not for a moment question the fact that Nadal is a great ambassador for the game of tennis and that as a person he is a particularly friendly and humble guy. It must be very difficult for any young man (or woman, of course!) to fight his way to the top against the best in the world, in full view of the public, always putting the best foot forward. Many champions have come and gone, but few will be remembered. I sincerely hope that Rafa will discard his bad habits and become one of the greatest tennis players the world has ever seen, in all respects.
