    I remember this interview so well…have it on tape. I remember thinking how polite he was in keeping himself from chomping on his gum while speaking. I’ve noticed that several times, even on today’s vid from the airport, he was chewing gum but in a very genteel way. What a cutie! The question P-Mac asked about his perfect match… that match with Baghdatis was so spectacular! I’ve watched it several times and oooh and aaah every time! Oh…to watch a current match where he plays like that…let’s hope!!!

    I just love the no nonsence approach he has about sticking his trophies in his room. It would be a tight squeeze in there these days. Hoping he’ll have to knock out a wall to fit the rest he’s gonna obtain!!!!!!!!!!! :) :D

    Aah, how his face just lit up when he spoke about fishing…

    As for the trophies – all those trophies, who cleans them?? Must take the best part of a day :-)) Given Rafa’s untidiness, I don’t reckon he does it!! (I hate housework, but I think I could cope with that job… so long as I could do it sitting by the pool next to Rafa in that gorgeous garden overlooking the harbour)*sighs and goes off into dream land*

    • Carol says:

      Oh God and it goes on… that Aston… boy reckon I could teach him a bit about driving (used to drive a TVR Chimera in my ahem, youth.. a 5 Litre Ford V8 stitched into a sexy fibreglass shell that scraped the ole’ black , aah, Rafa, you could ride in my old tiv any day sunk helplessly into the scarlet red recaro sport seats…)

    g’day mate. When he comes to auss we’ll have to show him some beaut spots we have here. :) :{)

    • mary says:

      fishing spots that is!!!! See what you do to me Rafa.

      • Carol says:

        naturally. Do you have Marlin as well as Barra around the Aussie coasts? I’d love to see him fight a Marlin!

        • mary says:

          If he’s got the rod and the bait, I’d only be too happy to be the Marlin. I’d give him a run for his money. And yep we got all types of fishes in the sea around here. We are totally surrounded by sea. LOL ;)

    Never seen that one! How cute is he chewing his gum? Can’t wait to see him in Montreal. :)

    • Carol says:

      Me neither – its been sooo long. I have to admit, I’ve been a bit of a media whore today ( = getting no constructive work done), looking to see if anything in the Montreal papers, but rien so far…

      Aah, I know it’s a little off post, but Rafa reminds me of a friend’s un-neutered Burmese tomcat – deep brown, gorgeous eyes, tautly muscled in a sleek soft skinned package and an incredible hunter-killer, but who loves to curl up on a warm lap… and loves seafood. OMG, am I losing it???

    I just love Rafa’s little laugh at the very end. :D

    Rafa’s gorgeous here period! alot of sportsman and coaches tend to chew gum as it helps the nerves lol.. we know how much nervous energy Rafa has. His smile* its beautiful, he is beautiful!!! *sighs, phew can’t wait to see him live again!

    • Suzanne says:

      Yeah, but he chews it so gently! With his masses of energy, I’d think he’d chomp on it like nobody’s business, but his sweet, polite nature seems to govern even his gum chewing! Boy are we goofy…he had better hurry up and get back or we’ll start debating about whether or not he flosses his teeth every day!

      • mary says:

        probably not. He mentioned somewhere he’s had some dental work(hence the chewing gum maybe). It helps keep the teeth clean no!

        • mary says:

          Well Suzanne you put it out there!!!!

          • Suzanne says:

            Yeah, I asked for it. Now what, do we find out how often he clips his toenails??? Heee heee!

            • Carol says:

              Phew: toenails after being in trainers??? Ah well, anything for Rafa. Shave his gorgeous sculptured face, cut his finger nails and caress those long, slim fingers, massage him on a sunbed… oops, maybe don’t go too far there – oh damn, life’s short… *grump from hubby -oh its that sweet wrapper guy again* Waaht – sweet Rafa defiled??? – Nooo. Hubby gets to make his own supper…

              • Suzanne says:

                Okay, Carol, since you mentioned shaving his sculptured face, have you noticed that it seems like whenever Xicsa is at a tourney, Rafa is clean shaven? It’s often a pretty good indicator that she’s there. She must not like prickly kisses…I know I don’t! Also, the slim fingers…he has beautiful hands (even with his one crooked finger).
