Definitely need more underwear shots here people. As for "Rafa's confused Josh Harnett"? I think that's supposed to be his acting. Hilarious!

Tsonga looked good today. His serve was amazing! I am really glad Rafa lost (a "strategic" loss, I suppose) today because he desperately needs some home time. He was probably dreaming of a couple of wild nights in Mallorca while watching Jo's aces whiz by. Good for him. He sure deserves a few days' rest before heading to Wimbledon. (And Bravo to him for giving the crowd three sets!)

I keep saying to myself, "When is the last time Fed beat Rafa in a major final (not counting WTF)?" Then I answer, "Wimbledon, 2007." Then I say, "When is the last time Fed beat Rafa at RG?" Then I answer, "Never." Then I say, "How old is Fed?" Then I answer, "Almost 30?" Then I say, "It ain't happening. Not on Rafa's watch." Vamos, Nadal!

I'm very happy that Rafa won yet another clay tournament. So what if he's great on clay! (They were just talking about Rafa losing his mojo back at IW and Miami.) Normal may be boring to some, but it is much better than having a "Roland Garros 2009" redux. Lather, rinse, repeat and vamos, Rafa!

I say, "ride the wave" for heaven's sake. He did skip Barcelona last year and he'll get a week off before Madrid, so have at it! If he loses, it's no biggie. Better to lose sooner than later. Vamos, Master of MC!

Those David Ferrer photos are soooo beautiful. Talk about an inspired photo shoot! Love the sepia tones, the big watch and the glasses! Thanks so much. :-)

He's so purdy. Love him. And Vera. Go team!

Maybe Fer is saving himself for Davis Cup. Or maybe he just wanted to get out of "Dangertown" alive. Who knows what's going on in that pretty little fauxhawked head? In any case, I still love love love that photo!

I really love it too. And her. She's a great "tennis personality." Now I just wish I just knew some German.

Thanks for "living the dream" and sharing it with us! And yes, we too have DD "coffee" here in Florida. It used to be quite good. When I asked the manager what happened, he told me that they changed the formula (watered it down) in 2008, so now it is very very not good. And no longer "coffee."

Sure, his body is pretty great, but I've never seen his hair look so good. Fabulous, even! What a guy!

"Sure. I respect everything." These four words explain why Rafa is just the best! Simple and to the point. What a lovely answer, what a lovely attitude!

Every time someone wants to know WHY I am a Rafa fan, I will point them to this article. Perfection. It says everything about Rafa that I can't put into words myself. Thanks so much!

Fabio is oh so pretty. His eyebrows look way better than mine. Which is not good. I have no idea who is going to win this one...

Wow! I love the thought of Nole as Shakira. So much win, especially if Rafa announces him! ;-) Can't wait!

I kept saying to my husband, "What is she wearing (or not wearing)?" Then I noticed how the cameraman was avoiding close-ups of Vee's service motion. So thanks for the photo. Now I know I wasn't seeing things. :-O

Shar-pei Rafa -- so cute. When he makes that face, my daughter calls it his "baseball mitt face." What's not to love? Vamos!

Congrats to Marko on his rise to the top! I think the ESPN editors are also responsible for the latest headline on Pete Bodo's ESPN piece from today, "Nadal Masters the Minors." At least they could have called Rafa "Master of the Masters" or something a little more flattering and a lot more accurate. :-( Tennis may not be their favorite sport, but at least proofread and do a little fact-checking now and then, especially when you are getting paid!

Rafa shorts do fit better. Custom job vs. Off-the-Rack, perhaps? (At least Gael's shirt fits better than it usually does. K-Swiss must have put it in his contract that he was not allowed to "swim" in his shirts anymore.)

Looks like one of those special effect shows at Disneyworld -- "Honey, I Shrunk the Novak." Yay for Marat! And he should definitely be the permanent all-ATP promoter. Lovely!
