“Que grande España!!!! El domingo voy a ver la final y a animar al equipo a Sudafrica!!!!! No me lo puedo perder y a animarles en persona!!!”
Translation: The Wimbledon and French Open Champion’s knees are too sore for Davis Cup so he hopped the first plane to South Africa as soon as Spain beat Germany in the World Cup Semifinals.
Do you blame him? Spain has given birth to not only Nadal and his championship-winning knees, but also a futbol team that won the Euro Cup in 2008 and on is its way to first or second place in the World Cup.
Nadal wants to be in the front row to watch his home team, and friends, in their first World Cup Final.
Good luck against France, Fernando and Feliciano, you’ll be watching the Finals on your TV.
