The Match for Africa

Laugh as much as you breathe
and love as long as you live
Take the bread from me, if you want
take the air from me, but
do not take from me your laughter

(Pablo Neruda)

What exactly triggers Federer's fit of giggles? Is it Rafa's pronunciation? Was it wrong, or what? he actually asks at one point. The thing is, though, he is unfazed by his rival's reaction. I admire this young man's attitude to his game and life - and I would really love to have him in my class. We would be able to do wonders with his pronunciation given the easy-going attitude and determination he demonstrates both on and off the court. Take note.
