After winning Barcelona Sunday, Rafael Nadal did his tradition pool jump with the ballkids. And he didn’t even take his socks off!

Nadal has plenty of reasons to celebrate. The former No. 1 has resurrected his game and maybe his career this month winning 10 straight matches including Monte Carlo and Barcelona. He now has nine titles at EACH event.

Nadal also ties Guillermo Vilas for the Open Era lead for clay titles at 49.

Rafa now gets a well-deserved week off before Madrid begins next week.

“I have been working so hard to enjoy moments like this,” Nadal said. “The fact that I’m playing at home is always even more special. I’m very happy and I feel lucky to enjoy this again.”

Here’s video of him jumping in the pool in 2011.

Giles Says:

No, he didn’t take his socks off and neither did the others.
😀😆😁


SG1 Says:

Didn’t butt pick on the way out of the pool either…interesting…:)


Green Lady Says:

So cute, love it, love ts side of the players ;-))….


RZ Says:

LOL. This reminds me of when Judy Murray commented on Jamie Murray keeping his socks on for a pool plunge when he won a tournament. https://twitter.com/judmoo/status/323252765033893888


elina Says:

Some fedfans always so focused on Nadal’s asterisk. They talk more about Rafa than their claimed fav. Sure even Gainey wrote Nadal was in Barcelona when it was supposed to be Fed.

Telling.


elina Says:

They really should focus on actual tennis and not on body attributes JK.

Just sayin.


J-Kath Says:

Ok Elina

I was agreeing – body attributes?…not of interest to me apart from covering my own mirrors….


Green Lady Says:

Nobody actually even mentioned Rafas body parts, aside from SG1 with his butt, i just thought the scene of them all jumping in the pool was pretty cute, as i like the fun side of the players, i dont think Rafas fans go on about his body nearly half as much as people actually think we do, the Rafa fangirl/hotbody talk gets really tiresome at times ….


elina Says:

Exactly GL and JK. Ironically more often its fedfans and “staff” writers that are all consumed with Rafa’s asterisk and body parts. That is my point lol.


skeezer Says:

“Some fedfans always so focused on Nadal’s asterisk. ”
This is funny, your joking again right? Fed fans could care less.
And one only needs to scour the Rafa sites(Ask Giles) and find out what Rafa fans like to talk about.
Hint: shirt on, shirt off? Armani on, Armani off?


Okiegal Says:

The only thing I can say regarding Rafa and his wearing apparel is this>>>>> I wish he would go back to sleeveless……and maybe he wouldn’t tug at the sleeves so much….time element thingy makes me nervous….That might save 2 or 3 secs…..


Okiegal Says:

The only thing regarding Rafa’s wearing apparel I can say is this>>>>>I wish he would go back to sleeveless and maybe he wouldn’t fiddle around with his sleeves. That became an extra tic when sleeves were added to his shirts. That might take away 3 or 4 seconds. The ritual he goes through makes me nervous….time tics away….no pun intended! Lol


Wog Boy Says:

Okie,

If it is not sleeves he would find something else to fiddle with..


elina Says:

Fed fans are always focussed on Rafa. Look at SG1 above and Tom Gainey saying Rafa was in Barcelona when he meant to say Federer.

(Not to mention a certain self-described Instagram heart throb who posts 100 times per Rafa match.)

It’s a fixation!


skeezer Says:

Hawkeyes,
SG1 is NOT a Fedfan lol,
But your a rafafanatic, u never could hide it. Ur the one with the deflection fixation, own up to it. Easy to see your heart pounding ;)


Okiegal Says:

@Wog Boy…..I wouldn’t argue that issue……


SG1 Says:

Thanks Skeezer. I’m actually a Rafa fan. I just thought it was amusing that he didn’t need to “pull his shorts out” when they were soaked. I can be a fan of a player and still poke a little fun.

Federer doesn’t give us much opportunity to poke fun at him which is too bad. His image has been a little too finely honed if you ask me.


Green Lady Says:

SG1 i dont mind a little lighted hearted teasing either, but surely you draw the line when it comes to things that get too personal, when certain posters here bring in sexuality etc ? ….


SG1 Says:

Green Lady…I agree. However, there’s nothing wrong with teasing the guy for some his antics. It’s not really any different than picking on Sharapova for grunting…which is actually far more annoying than Rafa’s myriad of twitches and pulls.

Well said Skeezer,

Elina and JK obviously hiding behind smokescreens.

Put your tongue back in ladies.


J-Kath Says:

Madmax: You couldn’t be further from the truth….it’s his money I’m after…I did consider Tomic, but Rafa’s got more.


lakie Says:

Doubt that SG1 is Rafa fan. Obviously a Fed or Nole fan. Most likely a Nole fan.
