Nadal’s Weird Spanish Obsessions

Learn Spanish

Learn Spanish (and Tennis)

Spanish tenista Rafael Nadal has some weird obsessions.

I’m not picking on him. Es mi tenista favorito. (He’s my favorite tennis player.)

He seems like a super nice bloke. Always humble, always gracious, always very polite.

Plus, he always leaves it all on the court. Por eso soy fanático de Nadal. (That’s why I am a Nadal fan.)

If you watch him play you’ll notice Rafa has some strange habits.

• He must have a cold shower 45 minutes before a match.
• He must carry one racquet on to the court.
• He must have five other racquets in his bag.
• He must have wrapped his own white grip on his racquets in the locker room.
• His bag must be placed next to his chair, on a towel, never on the chair.
• He must sprint to the baseline after the spin of the coin. A split-step and then a jog around the back court.
• He must towel down between every point. It can be ace or double fault – he must towel down as if he is covered in sweat.
• He must run his hair behind both ears.
• He must touch his nose.
• He must pick at his underpants.
• He must drink from two water bottles at changeovers. One bottle has cold water, one is warm.
• He must face the labels of his drink bottles to the end he is about to play from.
• He must never rise from his seat before his opponent.
• He must wait at the net post so his opponent can reach his seat first.
• He must never walk on the sidelines as if he is avoiding cracks in the pavement.
• On clay, he must run his foot along the plastic baseline on the side of the court he is about to play from.
• At the Australian Open, when going from one side of the court to the other, he must walk across the MELBOURNE sign.
• He must have his socks at the exact same height.
• He must fold his towels after every changeover.
• He cannot step on any lines on the court.

I actually have two things in common with Rafa.

No, I’ve never been asked to pose in my underwear for Armani.

And no, I don’t have his millions, his physique or his looks.

However, I once was a highly ranked tennis player, seventh in the Tasmania boys under-16s. (Back then there were at least eight Tasmanian under- age-16 tennis players.)

And like Rafa, I have been obsessive, although without the underpants-picking.

For example, it was the simple Spanish patterns that kept going through my head that led me to get started on Synergy Spanish.

Then I decided then it was time to step up and create something bigger with my life.

I spent six solid months of fanatical devotion turning those easy-to-follow patterns into an at-home Spanish system.

Usually, I am scared when I try anything new. This was a very different feeling. I was on fire. I knew I was creating something that would help a lot of people.

The planets must have lined up back then. I’m not sure if I even wrote it. It felt more like I was channeling it. It was like it was bequeathed to me.

Sorry, I got a bit woo-woo there. It’s so exciting to think back on that time.

It was the refining of Synergy Spanish that took obsessive dedication. When all the filtering was done there were just 138 words and some easy language patterns. Patterns so powerful you can turn 138 words into as many as 88,000 phrases.

If you are a baby boomer and you have tried to speak Spanish before without success, you’ll thrive with this system.

It’ll get you in the game of Spanish and give you a path to getting by in the language in 25 days or less.

That’s why Synergy Spanish is the thing in my life I am most proud of…

After my kids, of course. (And my number-7 ranking in the Tasmanian boys under-16 tennis.)

I’d love to share with you the fruits of my labor. I’ll get you speaking Spanish in less time than it takes Rafa to go through his ritual.

OK, maybe not that fast, but you are less than 25 days away from getting by in Spanish.

Spanish in 25 Days or Less

Now is your chance to finally speak some Spanish.

Synergy Spanish gives you the foundation for everyday Spanish conversations. For example, these types of Spanish phrases just fall into place.

Voy a jugar tenis con mis amigos.
I am going to play tennis with my friends.

Quiero ver el tenis esta noche.
I want to see the tennis tonight.

No me gusta el futbol pero me gusta el tenis mucho.
I don’t like football but I like tennis a lot.

You’ll be speaking with this kind of daily language in the first 20 minutes.

If you’ve stalled or just can’t get going with Spanish, I know this will clear the roadblocks for you.

Te lo prometo.
I promise it to you.

You’ll smash any barriers to speaking you’ve had. I know you can do it.

Voy a ensenarte a hablar mucho español pronto.
I am going to teach you to speak a lot of Spanish soon.

As Rafael Nadal likes to yell out on the court – VAMOS – let’s go.
