    Awwwww.. Can a man be anny sweeter?
    Not possible, No?

    Rafa, I really must insist on smelling your hair. And then I really must insist on you biting my ear instead of just the air. And I also must insist on you fondling ME instead of that microphone. But perhaps we could find somewhere a little more private to go, no…?
    Ahhh…he’s too much, too good…
    I need to go back to bed, again.

    He has the warmest smile. Luved Rafa’s big smiles when the reporters asked abt the biting of the trophies. Especially luved the wink when he was talking about ‘grass’ too.

    And he seemed so confident talking to the reporters in Eng (only few Spanish breaks), it seemed to flow so easily and he was comfortable chatting and interacting with them.

    Still fiddling with the microphone. But what, no mobile phone ringing?

    For sure… that gorgeous smile… Rafa you are a lovely hot honeybunch man (are 3 adjectives too much? – I think not for Rafael Nadal)

    Aah, so adorable how he simply just can NOT stay still, fiddling with the mike, his hair – bet he’s twitching his feet double time under that table :)). Funny, in anyone else this would be 100 percent irritating!

    Won’t be able to concentrate on anything now (yet again). Need some positive acktitude or there’ll be catfood for lunch and cheese sandwich for the cat.

      LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL Carol. Hope you manage to eat the correct lunch. I’d like to nibble on Rafa … *swoons*

      • Carol says:

        just come back (from dreamland) ..OOOh nibble, nibble, kiss that goddamned torso, slide hands around that “slender” waist.. phewhhh! Take me & him to Grenada where I happen to know several secret beaches and several of the taxi drivers by name (My husband was hospitalised with a prolapsed disc in Grenada in 2007, so I got to know a lot of them shuttling me around to and from the hospital…)
        Goddam, lunch? Dunno what lunch… Daresay the pusstat got fed (not Fed ;-)).

    I just love the way he says *what?*, with every presser I keep waiting if he’s gonna say it again, it’s sooooo sweet!

    Also funny: the speech that he used three times when he won the title – just needed to change some little things… :)

  6. sia says:

    I know … that “what” makes me want to kiss him on the mouth … hard.

    Oh gosh, how serene and chill is Rafa in this presser. What an absolute sweetheart. He just won an important title after 8 months and this is how he acts at the press con. Just amazing. Oh yes, when he motioned biting the trophy and let out that big smile afterwards, my heart just fluttered. Rafa’s just so warm and fuzzy in this one. It’s like you could wrap him all around you and be real cozy. Words can’t express how much this video just made me melt. Rafa just looks beautiful here. Gosh, he’s lovely and a one of a kind.

    Rafa said he was practicing on artificial grass before Wimby 2 yrs ago but that didn’t work well for him. Maybe that’s why he went to Queens that yr and in 08.

    I keep rewinding when he talks abt grass, hardcourt, indoor grass… I don’t know what the question was but I luv that wink, the smile and laugh. And those killer eyebrows. They express more than some people do with their whole face.

    • nic says:

      I know, isn’t that wink just to die for! Yes and those eyebrows are deadly. Now I wanna watch that again too!

  9. CC says:

    And look at the twitch level/extra shy smile, when the lady journalist asks what happened in Mallorca the week before Dubai, why he played well.
    You don’t have to explain Rafa, we understand what happened when you went back to Mallorca… (:

    • miri says:

      Oh yes. I’m sure he took the fishing pole out a few times…

      • CC says:

        Hah. Yeah…

      • johanne says:

        Nice. ;)

      • Carol says:

        Oh yeah, girls, girls!!: he can catch me a atun (tuna – I will prep it for him in my special teriyaki style) any day – btw there’s a similar allusion in a Clive Cussler novel between Dirk Pitt and his on-off girlfriend Lauren Smith along the lines of: LS says- the only rod you know how to use doesn’t involve a reel… Excuse the misquote. Scuse if this is off topic somewhat, but Rafa and the urmmm… aspects of fishing… and no I’m not thinking of cooking a damned glittering fresh Bass stuffed with herbs & lemon on the grill!

    I’ll never forget this tournament. It was the last live in person tournament I was able to attend. I went for two days during the middle rounds and saw two Rafa matches. He was with so much “colm”. Besides playing very well (I mean REALLY well), he was the most relaxed I’ve ever seen him. He was the only player that was interviewed on court after EVERY ONE of his matches that tournament. I remember not being at all “nervious” because of his “acktitude” and was certain that he was going to win it (no wishful thinking necessary that time). He was so adorable in the way he thanked the crowd for coming to all of his matches and “clapping for” him. I know that he always thanks the crowds, but this was the first time I noticed how much of a point he made of letting us know he noticed. My niece was with me (she was 17 then) and she was melting all over the place at her first sight of lovely Rafi (okay, so was I). It was interesting to see his semi-final with Roddick that year (watched that one on tv) as it was such a pro-American crowd and yet they all went nuts for Rafa and didn’t seem at all disappointed to see him win. Oh when will August arrive?????

    • Suzanne says:

      Oh, I also remember him telling Darren Cahill on court that his golf was “bad new” for him. His tennis was going very well, but his coach beat him every time on the golf course…Soooooo cute! Killer got a chuckle out of it.

    Finally got around to seeing these. Smoking hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanna be the microphone. He can fiddle & play with me as much as he likes. And that hot breath on me……….*faints*

  13. faecoleman says:
