Bonus flashback – Campeones!

Ever the thorough detective, Meri tracked down this unintentionally hilarious photo of Rafa, Marc!, Albert Costa and some other guys from the Real Club De Tenis Barcelona’s 2003 program.

That’s a lot of uptight looking pinstripes on young Spanish boys. And Rafa…Rafa…that hair. Plus, I’m laughing at how big the jacket at to be to fit over his famooos ass.

    Classic! Rafa’s bangs are hilarious. And he’s totally flirting with the camera…a sexpot in the making. ;)

    Yeah those sexy eyes “what a pose Rafa”* can they never get a suit to fit his gorgeous bod? I love his ruffled just out of the shower hair do* its perfect Rafa, would we love him any other way? course not!

    Gosh I’m speechless.

    I get the feeling Rafa was a last minute replacement. They probably said “get that kid with the long messy fringe and give him the only suit we have left and make him stand sideways”. That suit jacket was meant for someone much fatter and taller.

    Thanks Meri & Miri — great photo of RAFA being 17 & already a tennis pro at such a young age!
