undoubtedy very talented but he has always come across like a bit of a rich kid.
his uncle, Miguel Angel, on the other hand, was sound 8)
i don't agree.
maybe he had the good fortune to have a comfortable upbringing, but he has created who he is himself. in sport (that you physically do yourself - i.e. not equistrian or F1) there is no other way to do it, you can't cheat, you can't get max clifford to help you win, you do it yourself.
he is epitome of what a sportsman should be. hard work, guts, glory, no fear and skill.
also, there is practically nothing rafa does that isn't tennis related. he's never seen in clubs or turning his nose up at people. sure he's not a barrel of laughs on court, but he's a sporting great and many comparative greats were the same.
having said all that, can't feckin believe he supports them!!
