Video: Nadal barely remembers his French Open trophy ceremonies

At the end of the film "The Shawshank Redemption," the narrator, Red, comments that the escape of Andy Dufrense was aided by the simple fact that nobody every pays attention to mundane details like a man's shoes. In the case of Rafael Nadal, the mundane detail he can't remember is who handed him the trophy during each of his five French Open championship ceremonies:

I love that Rafa didn't remember that Bjorn Borg, the man he's supplanting as the greatest clay court player ever, handed him one of his trophies. Contrast that to Roger Federer, who probably remembers the name of everyone who's handed him trophies throughout his career from Wimbledon to the Bangkok Indoors.
