Raf-ia Donkey

I'm not sure I like Rafael Nadal.

I don't mean to stick the boot in, after all, the poor guy finished second in Wimbledon this year....but I thought it needed to be said.

He's the sort of tennis player who psychs himself up during a match by clenching his fist, and whispering words of encouragement to himself (in Spanish, I presume). It's this kind of silliness which puts me right off him.

He reminds me of a bully in primary school, who'd be frighteningly well developed, and who would thrash you in straight sets on the tennis court, while you sat sobbing in the corner; wishing you could go home to play on your gameboy.

Fair enough, you don't get where he's got today by not being competitive, but there's being competitive, and being a slightly scary Spaniard with tendencies to over react, and look like a tit.

He reminds me a lot of Christiano Ronaldo, with his Iberian good looks, and girlish fop of hair...but I'll leave Ronaldo for another vindictive post...

Is it just me, or do his sticking out arm veins frighten you a bit too?
