This photo of Nadal is kind of great

We know Rafael Nadal likes to post pictures to his Facebook page. The most recent chapter: Cooking dinner. On Sunday, he popped a couple images of himself getting ready for a meal.

This one in particular caught our eye:

It came with the caption: "About to start the dinner! Have a good meal!"

How reassuring. You would think a world-class, former No. 1, 12-time Grand Slam champion tennis player would be eating dinner off diamond-studded plates in palatial dining halls. But you'd be wrong.

OK, there's probably some of that too. But here he looks kind of like a college student who has just re-heated some pasta.

The standard-issue glass bowl. On a plate. The bad tablecloth someone thought was cool once. A carafe of water (we think it's water, anyway) at the ready. And something tells us he couldn't care less. The guy is acting his age, and we love it. Throw in some ramen and a juice box and we've got ourselves a party.
