He's one of my all time favs too. I thought Lara was pregnant w/ another baby. Maybe I 'm wrong, but I thought I read that somewhere. I also think he's helping tennis australia w/ players. He was playing WTT last year w/ the Phildelphia Freedoms. I hope he continues w/ WTT it was great to see him back on the court.

He is doing tv and print media for the Australian Open, and I think he was there as one of the honourees for their 100th anniversary celebrations.

Rafter watch

In Australia he is the poster boy for a brand of clothing called Bonds. They mostly do underwear. He was recently featured in a television commercial with supermodel Sarah O'Hare.

You can go to this website to see photos of Rafter in underwear. I didn't know how to put the photos on this website. If someone could explain that, it would be appreciated.

There are no scenes from the TV ad with Sarah O'Hare.

Thanks mate!

I did find some of their older tv clips, two of which feature O'Hare and Pat Rafter on their own. The Rafter clip is kinda funny...and someone tell me, is that a cameo appearance by the buzz-cut Lleyton Hewitt, or is it just a lookalike?

Pat Rafter and his wife Lara were on the cover of Women's Day magazine (a weekly Australian magazine). The article talked about how they're looking forward to expecting their second child.

Some notable quotes from that article:

Pat, 32, has long been keen to expand his family, and pals say that he's bursting with excitement about the new addition. "It's all he talks about," says one. "He'll tell anyone who'll listen how great it is to be a dad. I've never seen him happier."


Speculating on Joshua's future sporting prowess, proud Pat says his son is already showing promise. "He seems to be pretty co-ordinated at the moment," he says. "Time will tell over the next couple of years, but he's pretty good things like picking up a ball and throwing it. I hope he doesn't play tennis, though. It'd mean I'd have to go back on tour with him- one of those crazy dads. Hopefully he'll be golfer or surfer, and Dad can tag along."
"Love means nothing in tennis, but it's everything in life."
