The DailyMail Online has a quick Rafa fashion article up by Andrew Preston. Hard to tell if any of this is new or just gleaned from old interviews. It’s one of those typical fashion pieces that feels like it was paid for by sponsors…
I’ve got a fashion secret: my mother tells me what to wear.
I still take advice from my mum on what clothes look good on me. I used to listen to her a lot more, but I’ve started to choose my own things from time to time.
I think that’s long been suspected…
Like a lot of sportsmen, I find trousers can give me serious problems.
I often find it difficult to find a pair that fits me well. The way I’m built means I have muscular thighs and calves and a thin waist, so trousers very often don’t fit. They’re either right for my waist and I can’t get them on, or big enough to clear my thighs and really baggy around the waist. Usually I end up wearing the bigger pair and holding them up with a belt.
Sure, it’s the thighs that give you a problem.
Skincare is vital for me as I’m out on court all day in the sun.
The only problem is that it’s hard to use creams during a match because they can get in your eyes and sting.
No kidding. If anyone knows a good sunscreen that doesn’t sting your eyes, please let me know!
I hate the gym.
I don’t spend much time in there and I never have done – I just don’t see why. I only ever run when there’s some point to it – say, if it’s in a game of tennis. I do a lot of aerobics in the pre-season period, but after that I keep fit by playing in tournaments. I also love playing football – my preferred position is striker. I can’t play as often as I’d like because of the injury risks.
Awww…I hate the gym too. Too bad I don’t like any other ways of keeping fit, though.
