A Winner at Wimbledon



Aside from notebooks, we’re enamored with tennis. So forgive us for the sports reference we’re making for the second week in a row. And both with Spanish connection. Earlier today, we were treated to a game for the record books: The Rafael Nadal-Roger Federer Wimbledon 2008 Championship. It was just pure energy, and we could not keep ourselves still while watching the match that lasted for four hours and 48 minutes (six plus if you count the rain). It was riveting to say the least, and at the end of the day our favorite player from Mallorca prevailed in a stunning fashion. We could not be happier for Rafa that he finally conquered the grass court. Rafa also made history by becoming the first player in 28 year history, to win the British and French Opens in one year. The photo above was not taken during the historic clash, but we love it because it shows him wearing what is apparently his color of choice, orange. Of course orange is our color of choice and in France, the birthplace of Rhodia notebook, it has a long history and significance. They even have a cellphone company named after it, aside from southern French town of Orange. And speaking of the French connection, Rafa’s also this year’s French Open, his 4th win at Roland Garros. The Sunday game was a fitting close to our three-day 4th of July weekend here in the US. To our beloved Rafa, Bravo!
