RG round 3 match photos

There were so many photos of beautiful, sliding, slice backhands that I got a bit hot and bothered. I didn’t post all of them lest the internets melt. I’ll spread them out a bit. I can’t wait to actually watch the match tonight!

    You’re so fast in posting these photos, thanks! Number 12 is odd, makes me think Rafa never should cut his hair real short…

    I think that if he cut it short it wouldn’t come out like it did in this photo — check back to Rafa with a short haircut when he was young. What a cutie… but either way — no matter what hair length RAFA ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

    Hey these are really nice pics, thanx miri, I too love the ones with him sliding into his back hand slice, so focused and he’s cheeky smile at the net after they confirmed that his serve was indeed an ace, well done to Rafa, great win for him today!

    If they ever erect a statue to Nadal at RG, I vote that it looks like photo #8.
