It's always pretty chill here at the BNP Paribas Open, which is probably one of the most relaxed tournaments on the tour, however, that all changes the moment Rafael Nadal walks onto the practice courts. The trademark "Cali Cool" vibe of the tourney flips upside down and I swear you would think you were at a U2 concert as his die-hard fans scream his name and applaud every stroke of his racket, often punctuated with an, "I love you Rafa!!!" It's an awesome atmosphere and it never ceases to amaze me how fiercely his fans adore him. Here are some pictures from his practice today! Enjoy!
