Exchange between Rafa and Roger at the net after their quarterfinal last night

Rafa: Is your back hurting?
Roger: Oh, I’m fine.
Rafa: Hope you feel better soon.
Roger: Thanks.


Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal: Indian Wells 2013


This tournament is already 900% better.

There is an argument that Rafa was the best player of the year because we don’t know how he would have played in the remaining 6 months. We hope he’s back next year so we can have this conversation again.

Obviously we do miss Rafa. He also belongs here, he’s won a slam this year. I would love to see him here and playing again.
The draw is potentially a little easier, there’s no denying that, because Rafa is a great champion.
It’s obviously never the same if Rafa doesn’t enter the tournament… Of course we all wish the best for him and to return quickly.

It’s too amusing that during the French show yesterday, Rafa was pictured with two people on the giant screen - Mary and Roger. His significant others, no? ;-P


Translates as:

I remember every one of the matches I’ve played against Roger! Thanks for the summaries in these videos!”
