Rafael Nadal is making his comeback this week at Montreal and is happy about it. . .at least he says he’s happy.
Maybe I’m imagining things, but I see some sadness behind that sweet smile of his. I kind of like this new, tortured-soul Rafa, but hope it’s just a phase.
Here he is at practice on Saturday. Too blurry to see much angst:

Also interesting – Rafa will be playing doubles in Montreal with his sometime-coach, the 41 year old Francisco Roig. They meet stiff competition – their first round will be against Novak Djokovic/Dusan Vemic. Weird but kinda fun.
