Met him last year in the Lacoste lounge at the o2 arena. Nice guy but seemed a bit shy, still an amazing signing for stars.

No. He is a suspect alright, him and everyone at the top of tennis. I would be amazed if anyone in the top 32 wasn't on some form of PED for most of their professional career. That's elite sport.

I doubt Nike would want a Pokerstars patch on their t-shirts, but who knows.

No official announcement. Not really convinced this is true.

Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

the link posted earlier in this thread 'proving' nadal used steroids is filled with so much completely ridiculous bull**** that I hope no one takes it as any sort of 'source'.

Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

As a big time tennis fan and player, I find this awesome! Nadal is very humble and an unbelievable player.

Time to go play some online pok.....o wait!

RANGZZZZ. Or I guess in tennis, TROPHYZZZZZZ.

Also will Rafa have to wear a PS.com patch on his shirt or racket while playing at the French?

I'm sure Pokerstars is chomping at the bit to sign an athlete who hails from a country in which they are under indictment and who is retiring from international competition

he has worldwide appeal and is a huge poker fan so probably would come a lot cheaper than Nadal.

The actual question is if he mysteriously seems to have a bigger timebank than everyone else and nobody in charge seems to care about it. He`s Rafa after all.

IF taking a little more time between serves is the worst thing going for Rafa, I think he'll take it.
