Rafael Nadal hit the waters ahead of the Monte Carlo tournament hopping aboard a yacht Monday. The Spaniard joined the crew on Tuiga, manning the rudder and learning the ropes of sailing the Yacht Club de Monaco’s flagship. Tuiga sailed around Monte-Carlo harbour.

“It was a wonderful way to enjoy an afternoon,” said Nadal who’s an avid fisherman. “It was a special experience for me. I am from an island, so the sea, the sails and everything involved means a lot to me. I really enjoyed it and want to say thank you very much to all the Tuiga crew, who were very nice. I enjoyed it a lot with them.

“I don’t go sailing very often. I go more often on a motor boat. I don’t have much time at the moment for sailing, maybe in the future. I spend a lot of time on the sea when I’m at home, especially in the summer. I live in front of the sea and the port is three minutes from my home.

“The way that [the crew] are working together to make the boat perfect and go faster is amazing. Everybody works for one goal. It’s a special thing.”

Nadal will play tomorrow in Monte Carlo.

Nice scenes,i assume its ok to comment about this without been accused of been a fanatic,after all its about the scenery,and not his body,or any of that SH*T?


Wheels Says:

Nice way to unwind and get away from the pressure. Rafa looks relaxed and quite at home on the water. Good for him.


Okiegal Says:

@Chic……..funny!!


Hippy Chic Says:

Okiegal i figure its safe on this thread,hes got his shirt on,and im a fan whos merely complimenting the scenery and not his body,from now on its my motto to compliment everybody elses favorites wins and titles,and not to celebrate any of his wins or titles of Rafas,that way one cannot be accused of been a fanatic can they??


mat4 Says:

Hi, Alison. Nice posts from a nice lady, like always.


Hippy Chic Says:

Hi Mat4 thanks,lol but im assuming your joking right,ive turned into somewhat of a headcase today?


mat4 Says:

Not joking. Then, nobody’s perfect.


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

You can leave TX for a couple of hours and all hell breaks loose. Been reading a few posts and seems like you’ve got folks stirred up again! Chic, you can’t win for losing!! I know you are a “good old girl”…….and I have an Aunt who always said “there is no demand for good old girls”. LOL You are a nice person, obvious by your posts. Hang in there and don’t take it to heart. I know you are passionate about being a fan of Rafa just like I am, but you and I are not so blinded by Rafa that we can’t see the awesomeness in other players, and we share those feelings on TX, much to some Rafa fans dismay! On the thread about Roger’s 100 tennis points, I got on you tube and lots of players on the circuit have great shots, not just Roger. Did I appreciate watching those 100 great shots?? Yes I did along with many others from other players. I’m very open minded to all players just like you. Am I on target with my thoughts?? Have a good night, Chic.


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

I was referring to another thread about you stirring things up……


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

You and I are good at stirring things up……especially with Rafa fans!! LOL.


mat4 Says:

@Alison:

I have a bit more time to answer now. You are usually a very nice poster. So what if sometimes you write something not that nice?

Then, there is also another thing. We can always write nasty, and we can write nice. But many times it’s not the _writing_, but the _reading_ that is nasty… or nice.


Hippy Chic Says:

Mat4 thanks,to be honest ive said alot of things today that i wish i hadnt,but unfortunatly its too late now borderline pyscotic was putting it mildly,but as they say tomorrow is another day,so ill put it behind me and start again,im quite relieved that people have thankfully chose to ignore my posts,i wont see Rafa tomorrow as m working,so ill just catch the result when i come home,whatever will be will be,thanks again anyway,enjoy the tennis….


mat4 Says:

We all have bad days. S… happens. But who cares? You have written so many nice posts in all those years that a day like this is so easy to forgive… and forget.


Hippy Chic Says:

Thanks Okiegal lol….


Hippy Chic Says:

BTW He does look nice in white,ive always prefered the casual look on Rafa anyway,if im allowed to say that….


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

I guess I will be brave too and say that I love Rafa in white. Hopefully nothing more will be read into it. lol


Hippy Chic Says:

Okiegal lol dont hold your breath,i always find it funny really some posters like Contador with Nole,Madmax with Roger,RZ with Tommy Hass,Mat4 with Maria,Courbon with Serena,Colin with Pironkova etc,compliment players on their looks,yet when a Rafa fan does it they are accused of been fanatics who are only interested in his looks and his body,im just wondering what makes them different and us fanatics,the man has won 13 GS for goodness sake,could it just be possible that we actually like him simply because hes an amazing player??


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

I can say positively that I am strictly in awe of his amazing tennis skills. Now if I were his age or younger I am sure that I would possibly have other thoughts…..but not in this stage of my life. I think Rafa is a nice looking young man and his little girlfriend is absolutely beautiful. As I have said before, I am old enough o be his Nana, for crying out loud! People on this forum are always trying to invent something that isn’t there.

He got started out a little slow today but he does that on occasion, and he is capable of playing better than he did today. We will see what unfolds and come what may!!

#watchthespeedlimitplz!!


Hippy Chic Says:

Okiegal lol yeah they are a beautiful looking couple,but there are also many good looking players out there that i cannot stand TBH,and also ones that arent that good looking that i actually enjoy simply because of their brilliant tennis,they should call me the tennis-x groupie/cougar,anyway Rafa needs to speed up these umpires are not taking any prisoners,i sat watching the repeat saying come on Rafa get a move on,and taking it out on that ball boy wasnt really fair either….


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

When he loses a major point that could mean the difference between winning or losing a match, maybe he will make a change. I have a suggestion that might help Rafa with his time……..go back to sleeveless shirts……then he wouldn’t fiddle with his shirt sleeves. That might take 3 or 4 seconds off the time. He needs our help, Chic, and bad…….LOL
