Happy birthday, Rafa!

Rafael Nadal—tennis star and cutie pie—is celebrating his birthday today with a win at the French Open. He takes on Novak Djokovic in the semis on Friday. As much as I’ve tried to like Djokovic, his family with their ridiculous matching outfits, and sideline whining has ruined any chance of that happening.

Despite the fact that Federer (who I love for reasons I cannot explain here, but let’s just say that I got more than teary-eyed when he and Nadal played their final point at Wimbledon last year) lost his match against Djokovic in the finals at Monte Carlo, I love this video from that game where Federer loses his normally unshakeable cool at the Djokovic family. I hope he doesn’t have to do so again—as long as Nadal gives Djoko and his family the spanking they deserve tomorrow.
