Rafael Nadal Takes On U.S. Open

Rafael Nadal Takes On U.S. Open

Rafael Nadal of Spain plays his match against Bjorn Phau of Germany during Day 1 of the 2008 U.S. Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens, New York on Monday.

The Wimbledon and French Open champ at one point needed to bandage a nasty blister, but eventually won 7-6 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (4).

“I think I need the (crowd) support a little bit this year,” the 22-year-old said. “(But) I still believe it’s an advantage if you know how to win a US Open. It’s a tough tournament to win.”

    Rafa’s great but the quote about it being an advantage to know how to win the US Open came from Roger Federer, not Rafa.

    Jeez, Rafa’s publicists must be working the media. Didn’t remember seeing this much picture of non-America tennis players before. And Roger Federer was #1 and was the dominant force in Tennis for 4.5 years.

    Hey gizmatage,

    I’m glad to see the U.S. media is “working” Rafa — deservingly so because he’s the new #1, and Olympic Gold, Wimby, French champion!.

    Phelps is a huge Rafa’s fan (as I watched the interview and that what Phelps said). If Phelps could openly admit himself as a Rafa’s fan, that says something…both are great champions!!!!

    Good luck Rafa at the US Open…VAMOS RAFA!!!!

    Watching Serena kicking some Bondarenko butt right now. Can’t wait to see Roger play later tonight.

    Jared, if Roger wins this game. You better post it. I’m seeing way too much Nadal bias on this sight lately. Tisk Tisk. :-)

    Also, how about some love for the Williams sisters, they’ve been playing some of their best tennis in years this season? Love you Jared, been on your blog since it was on Blogspot!

    LOVE RAFA! He better win the Open! Actually, I’d be happier if Roddick won, but I am trying to be realistic here. ;) haha, so I think Rafa should get it. I am so happy he won the gold in Beijing!!!
