Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  2. In my opinion, Rafa Nadal is the best tennis player nowadays. The Sunday He showed it another time, Rafa Nadal for me has been in the championship at his highest level and the final versus Djokovic, Rafa Nadal was better than Djokovic. I saw most of the matches and this year the level has been much higher than the last year and Nadal has also uploaded his level.
    About the song, it's not too bad but I usually listen other types of music and this type I don't like too much.
    I have been the book 'A foreigner in new york' and it looks like a good book and it has surprised me that only new york has more inhabitants than Spain.

  3. I've ever admire this men, when i was little, I watch all of his matches, at today he still getting me with the mouth open. Rafael Nadal will make history in the world of the sport, not only in tennis he is excellent, he is a example to follow as a athlete, he is fighter, nonconformist, educated, he has all that people wish to have to compete like he did, i will ever remember Nadal like a boss of the sports, and i'm sure that most people will think like me. I don't think that the perfection exist but if one day, someone ask me what is perfection, or what is the most think near to the perfection i have seen ever, i will answer "Nadal, Rafael Nadal is the only thing that make me think that perfection exist".

  4. I saw an incredible tennis match yesterday. Despite not being my favorite sport,it seemed like a great game and it was very exciting.The rivalry between Nadal and Djokovic goes a long way. They have met fifty-six times,of which twenty-nine by Djokovic and twenty-seven by Nadal.
    The first and second sets were very easy for Nadal,the third set was the most disputed of the match and it was no known who was going to win.
    For me Rafael Nadal is the best Spanish athlete in history. Also as a person is humble,hardworking and professional.It will be a long time before another athlete like him is found.

  5. I think Rafael Nadal is the best tennis player that exists, he has been since 2001 playing like a pro and he always succeeded.
    It seems to me so good that he has decided to go another time to Rolando Garros, because he won three out of twelve times the Roland Garros award.
    The majority of his matches were incredibles and very exciting.
    I think both Nadal and Federer in spite of are the greatest rivals, they are so good friends, because we can see it in the posts in their social media.
    Rafael Nadal and Federer are the big example that each effort has its reward.

  7. I think Rafael Nadal is the best tennis player. He has played this sport since 2001 and is a professional.
    I don't like to watch tennis, but I almost always hear that Nadal wins. The few games I have seen him play are very exciting. In the last game he played he was incredible.
    He is a very humble and hard working person and I think he deserves everything he has because he has achieved it with his effort. I think he is a great example both in sport and in his personality.

  8. In my opinion Rafael Nadal is the best tennis player and is a legend. I saw the match and he was playing incredible, his level was amazing. He was better than Djokovic in the match,he made a perfect match from start to finish I play everything well. It was one of the best matches I have seen. I like tennis I always seen Nadal since I was little and I always enjoyed how he played.He has already won 20 grands slam and 13 Roland Garros are incredible numbers for a tennis player. Nobody will overcome those 13 Roland Garros and what could be more in the future.

  9. Rafael Nadal is a Spanish professional tennis player currently ranked world No.2, after Novak Djokovic, in men’s singles tennis by the ATP. There is plenty of evidence that Nadal is unstoppable on clay and he proved that again recently, winning his 13th Roland Garros title.

    From a very young age, Nadal was passionate about sports and played both football and tennis. His uncle, Toni Nadal, has been his tennis trainer since he was 4. At the age of 8, he won an under-12 regional tennis championship which made his uncle intensify training and encourage him to continue playing tennis instead of football. At age 12, Nadal won the Spanish and European tennis titles in his age group. In 2004, he was a member of the Spanish National Team that won the Davis Cup and a year later, he won his first Roland Garros at the French Open. In 2016, in his hometown of Manacor, Rafa Nadal inaugurated his own academy, where he aims to share everything he has learnt over his career with the young students.

    This last Sunday, we could watch Nadal winning his 13th Roland Garros in Paris. With his incredible victory against Djokovic, Rafa has now broken a list of records in the tennis history books. What’s more, he has now equalized Roger Federer’s record of 20 grand slams.

    To sum up, Rafael Nadal is one of the best tennis players of the 21st century and is considered a hero because of his tennis achievements. I think he is an excellent example for young sportsmen to determine goals and achieve them. He is a great champion, a master of clay!
