i think nadal's signing trumps wheaton and alexander. the way i look at it, nadal is stillat the peak of his stardom. i don't know too much about wheaton and alexander but i don't think they are as currently prominent as they used to be. nadal, you can still turn on the tv and find him playing in the finals of a grand slam tournament.

LOL's! But really not a bad signing for PokerStars, should bring a lot more awareness to the site and build it even more (as if it really needs it lol, was in a $1. Rebuy earlier and 1st was like 14K Lol!)

You make a compelling argument. What about Nadal vs the Hal Lubarsky signing?

There's a lot of people that hate on Nadal. I just don't get it. Everytime he plays /does an interview/loses/wins he shows nothing but class.

Dude you have no idea how much that signing had for the potential sightless online poker community. I'd say the signings are similar in impact.

Numerous times he has received on-court coaching and he often fakes injury and takes a medical time out to disrupt an opponent. After his treatment for his injured 'whatever it is this week' he then plays at the same level if not better.

well, if they did this to becker, they should do it to Kuerten, too. he isn't that popular worldwide but he does love playing poker. If I recall correctly he even cashed the PCA 2011 Main Event.
