FROM THE BNP PARIBAS OPEN AT INDIAN WELLS – Rafael Nadal is the ultimate athlete. He is just so specific about everything that has to do with his involvement in sports, from taping and re-taping four of the fingers on his left hand to avoid blisters (he never takes the tape off during matches now), to going to the driving range with the same battered hand if he has a bad round of golf. Sports is his cathedral, and he is spiritually devoted to worshiping at the altar while following a decisive code of morals.
