That’s It. I’m Reproducing.

Posted by gauloises1 on May 10, 2010

Not right this second, obviously. But if I could be guaranteed that my spawn would be one-thousandth as adorable as seven year-old Nole in this video, then I would. I really would.

Thanks to Al/Noleksa for the link.

      Mine won’t be. Because they will inherit their talent from their giant Argentine father be locked in the cellar, ruthlessly emotionally manipulated and generally bullied into becoming champions.

        What is the story about Ferrer being locked in boxes, basements, closets, ect? I have seen it referenced several times now, but cannot find any information about it. Thanks.

          Once as a young ‘un he was locked in the store cupboard for an hour by his coach to straighten his head out. Most tv commentators have exaggerated this into a repeated incarceration. I would pay quite a lot to be locked in that cupboard with him.

            Most TV commentators and also me.

            Or are you telling me it’s not true that he was kept in there for days, fed on mouldy bread and brackish water, and poked repeatedly with sticks?

              arg, my bad. It was a repeat incarceration – I went back and re-read that ATP article. I guess my cynicism about the lazy Sky commentators befuddled my brain. That or the wine.
              The quote from coach Piles reads:
              “When he didn’t want to work I would lock him up in a dark room of two by two meters and I would put a lock on it so he couldn’t get out,” says Piles. “It was the room where we would store the tennis balls. I would tell him that his working schedule was from 9 to 12 and that if he didn’t want to work he would remain there punished. I would give him a piece of bread and a bottle of water through the bars of a small window. After a few minutes we would hear David asking other trainers from the club for some help to get out but we wouldn’t pay any attention.”

              BTW, the magical support of New Balls seems to be working a treat. Just wish he didn’t have to be beating Murray all the time.
