Rafa´s comeback (English & Spanish)

17 04 2013

It has been more than a month since the expected and most wanted comeback of Rafa Nadal to the circuit.  Besides all the assumptions, speculations and criticisms, there was not a person in the tennis industry, including players, coaches, managers, sponsors, rivals and audience, who did not miss Nadal. Thank you Rafa, our sport smiles and it is happy for your return. You’re at your favorite event Monaco again.

Modern tennis was hurt without Rafa Nadal, it was as if it had missed his soul; to lose his top warrior, the tireless fighter beloved by everyone, the strongest, the most explosive… the tournaments without Nadal did not arise the same interest. The wait for his return was long but, like everything in life, it came to an end, and it was finally over. Rafa came back, fulfilling everybody’s wishes, and he did it on his beloved red clay, that clay that protects him, that gives him more power; what a great choice!

During all this time, when people asked me about his injury, about if Rafa would come back, I told them he would come back, and that once Rafa returned he would start winning right away. Knowing him, I knew that his warrior’s heart would not let him come back not being at 100%. Rafa Nadal cannot lose, his essence is winning, his triumphs are his fuel, he could not return to the tour to be mediocre. To lose is not in his mind, neither in his dictionary, a hesitant Rafa would not have been the player we were missing, the player with a winner’s heart.

The first week was not easy for him, he ended up losing a great final being very close to the victory. Winning is a feeling that you have to get used to, and all players feel this weird weight on themselves after some time without feeling it. However, at the second opportunity he raised the trophy in Sao Paolo, and at the third tournament in Acapulco, where he had his real test, he debuted successfully by destroying Ferrer at the final. The great Nadal was back, at least on clay court.

I had my doubts about if he would play in hard courts; indeed, I told several people that I believed Rafa would only play on clay court until he would feel totally fine. However, I was wrong; he went to Indian Wells and he started to feel the hard surface, and once more he surprised everyone by winning match after match until he met Federer at the semifinals,

killing him. It was expected a hard final for Nadal against Del Potro, who had defeated Djokovic and Murray to make it to the final. The match started with the Argentinean dominating, winning comfortably. Commentators were saying that it would be an easy job for Del Potro, who leaded the match by winning a set and with a break in the second one. But then, the Argentinean had a moment of doubt, and at that moment the tiger appeared: Nadal recovered the break, changed the match and had a tremendous come back, ending up obtaining the Indian Wells title.

Although Nadal transmitted us many things through his happy face once the final finished, his words after the match went even deeper; he remembered the hard moments, his people and especially his uncle, who was not there, and he gave us some patterns about the lessons received to face adversity. What a lesson for everybody!

The audience was happy, surprised by the comeback of our epic Rafa Nadal, the warrior who keeps fighting and waiting for his chance and, once the chance  appears, he takes it; this is his way of looking at life, we could all learn from it and apply it to the challenges that life offers to all of us.

Rafa, thanks for coming back.

La vuelta de Rafa

Hace ahora más de un mes de la esperada y deseada vuelta de Rafa Nadal al circuito, atrás quedaron suposiciones, criticas, quejas, especulaciones pero principalmente añoranzas, no hay una persona de la industria, jugadores, coaches, managers, sponsors, rivales y ante todo el público,  que no le echase en falta. Gracias Rafa, nuestro deporte sonríe, es de nuevo feliz por tu vuelta. Estás otra vez en torneo favorito Mónaco.

El tenis moderno sin Rafael Nadal estaba herido,  era como si le hubiesen robado el alma, perder a su máximo exponente, al guerrero, al luchador incasable querido por todos, su fuerza, sus explosiones  de energía  fuera de lo normal, los torneos sin él no tenían interés. Y la espera se prolongó, pero como todo en la vida llega a un final, se acabó la espera. El sueño de todos se cumplió, decidió volver, en la tierra que tanto le gusta, que le protege, que le da más fuerza, que gran elección.

Durante este tiempo cuando me preguntaban acerca de su lesión, de si volvería, yo les respondía que volvería y que volvería a ganar enseguida. Que su corazón de guerrero no le permitiría volver a medias, que si lo hacía volvería al 100 por cien, conociéndole no podía ser de otra manera. Rafa Nadal no puede perder, su esencia es ganar, su gasolina son sus triunfos, es como es, gracias a sus triunfos y no podía volver para ser mediocre, perder no esta en su doctrina, ni en su diccionario, un Rafa dubitativo no hubiese sido el Rafa que añorábamos, debía volver el Rafa con alma de ganador.

La primera semana le costó, terminó perdiendo una final ganadísima varias veces, pero a ganar hay que estar acostumbrado y el llevaba tiempo sin sentirlo y a todos les pesa. Pero a la segunda ya levantó la copa en Sao Paolo, y a la tercera en Acapulco donde tuvo su prueba de fuego y como la resolvió, destrozando a Ferrer en la final. Había vuelto el grande Nadal , al menos en tierra.

Yo tenía mis dudas de que jugase en dura, es mas a varias personas les dije que solo jugaría en tierra hasta sentirse bien, pero me equivocaba, se fué a Indian Wells y empezó  a sentir la dureza de ese suelo, y una vez más sorprendió al mundo entero, no solo probó la dura sino que fue adelante, ganando partido tras partido hasta las semis contra Federer al que pulverizó, lo dudaban?. La final se presentaba dura contra Del Potro que había ganado a Djokovic y Murray. Empezó dominando Del Potro, ganaba cómodo, los comentaristas decían que era un paseo, se adelantó tb en segundo con break, y ahí tuvo una pequeña duda, entonces apareció el tigre, soltó su zarpazo, recupero el break y cambió el partido llevándose una vez más la copa de Indian Wells.

Su cara de felicidad era para enmarcar, pero si con algo me quedo es con sus declaraciones,  dicen todavía más de él, se acordó de los momentos duros, de su gente y sobre
todo de su tío que no estaba con el, además  nos dio pautas de cada una de las enseñanzas recibidas para aprender a saber sufrir ante la adversidad. Vaya lección para todos.

El público estaba  feliz, los presentes seguro salieron de la pista con esa incredulidad de haber vuelto a ver al Rafa Nadal épico, al que lo da todo esperando su chance y siempre está cuando aparece, esa manera de enfocar la vida como un cazador, como un guerrero, podríamos todos los demás aprenderla para poder aplicarla a  los partidos de la vida.

Gracias por volver, Rafa.

At the same time, web games seemed like the future of gaming, and we wanted to

Similar to the cue ball that is shot in pools; this game involves coins and
strikers that are essential to play carrom game. Say you’re doing as well at Chemistry, and as you are doing at Maths Extension 2, then instead of splitting your study time equally between the two (just because they are both worth 2 units each), you should spend more time on Extension 2, simply because it scales higher.

Funny Or Die separates itself from other funny video clip hosting sites by
the way it lets people rank the videos, get enough funny
votes and the video will be immortalized get enough die votes
and the video will be sent into the “crypt”.
I think what corporate America has forgotten is that the airwaves are
public. Organizing employees, maintenance of radio station as well as layout and other details are very simple and
therefore creating a radio station online is a lucrative deal for
those who want their own stations.

But with Nexus Radio the only settings you have to worry about are where you want to save your
files and what file type you want to save it as. It was an entertaining radio program that played the music people wanted to hear combined with his groovy upbeat personality.
Many people will be happy with replaceable batteries for home use and occasional
