Enlarge the image and look at that face, huh?

That's Rafael Nadal, from a slideshow available in the sidebar of Cynthia Gorney's fine NYT Magazine article about him. (Photo: Clive Brunskill/Getty Images.)

I never played tennis seriously, but I'm reminded of the first time I stepped into the batter's box to face a pitcher who could throw faster than 90 mph.

(1-4, with a single to left field, if you're scoring at home.)
