Thanks to DtL reader amon for tipping me off to the latest on Rafael Nadal.
While his compatriots sweat it out in Mar del Plata, Argentina preparing for this weekend's Davis Cup final, Rafa was sweating it out for a different reason.
The world's top baller (and his sick legs) took a well-deserved vacation in hot + sunny Mauritius with Xisca in tow. He was spotted snorkling, swimming, running on the beach, and riding a 'doughnut' during his break from tennis action.
So I guess this means the knee tendinitis that shut down his season early is all healed up now - how convenient!
Do you think he called Serena Williams for advice on this one?
UPDATE: I guess even Xisca can still be hypnotized by Rafa's more natural "gifts". Maybe it's because those tiny green trunks look like they're struggling mightily to keep him all in.
What IS going on down there, man? Lordy, Lordy...
