Spanish tennis world number one Rafael Nadal has criticised plans for an independence referendum called by Catalonia's pro-separatist government for October 1. The referendum is deemed illegal by the Spanish government and the country's Constitutional Court. "I think what is happening on October 1 ought not to take place because, from my point of view, everyone should respect the law," Nadal, a Catalan speaker, told Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "The laws are what they are and one can't skip the laws because you want to skip them. I can't run a red light because that traffic light doesn't seem right to me." Nadal, 31, is a national hero in his homeland having landed a 16th career Grand Slam at the US Open on Sunday.

David is such a sweet guy but must realize his friends are NOT his friends on court during a match. I certainly wish him the best.
