Now that 16-year-old Rafael Nadal has upset Carlos Moya on clay, don't you think it's about time you give the kid some ink? He did lose his next match to Gaston Gaudio, but something has to be said for anybody upsetting Albert Costa and Moya on clay in a three-week period, let alone their 16-year-old compatriot. So what's the scouting report on him? Have you had a chance to see him play yet? (Avoiding that Nadal-Gasquet comparison you media folks love so much would be greatly appreciated!)
Oops, you're a question too late. But we're happy to give the ink. Any 16-year-old who beats Moya on clay shoots to the head of the class. We eagerly await watching him play at Roland Garros.
SamL - they won't let me have a column; apparently I focus way too much attention on Spaniards and Argentines, and am too negative about certain American players. I have no idea what they are talking about
