    The event was short but sweet, and I’ll do a brief recap of it after work today.

    I just wanted to say, Serena’s arm is HUGE! Granted, it’s not Rafa’s left arm in comparison, but she dwarfs him.

    These pics are SO cute! Rafa & Serena both look really great! And HOT. Love their color choices.

  3. Trish says:

    Love the outfits. Looks like Rafa cut his hair too?! I know there are a lot of fans for the long haired Rafa but I have been hoping that he would cut his hair shorter … maybe he did? Either way — he always looks great! Vamos Rafa!

    • rafafan1 says:

      Yes, it sure looks like he cut his hair. It was longer at Cincy. I’m not crazy about this short do, esp where he let the short hair at the top hang out of his bandana (looking a little like the Fed). I love the hair length at Cincy (not too long, not too short, just perfect). Maybe I need time to warm up to this new do.

      • mary says:

        Look like Fed, impossible!!! That would take a road kill to achieve something close.
        Rafel you scrumptious & edible. *falling, thud*

        • Carol says:

          Road kill…hee, heee, hee LOL! You could put Rafa in a RF grampy cardie and he’d still be burning… Ha, those biceps & shoulders would rip the seams at first move *now that’s a thought… Rafa ripping a tight shirt* Need a shower – cold.

          • mary says:

            Very cold, clothes ripping, peeling back like banana skins with each smack of a racquet. Oh f****k just got myself hot again!!!!! I need some fresh air!

      • killian says:

        I like the LONG. It was even too short for me at Cincy. . .I wonder what Xisca thinks?

    • aRafaelite says:

      I get nervous when he cuts his hair… look what happened in Madrid!

      • An says:

        In Madrid he got to the final!

        If the haircut has annything to do with that he can get one before evry tourney please!
        All he has to do is stay healthy, if it hadn’t bin for the knees het would have won Madrid i think..

        • mary says:

          Right on. That’s the f****g truth of it! Glad he ain’t reading this site he might wonder who we barracking for?

          • CC says:

            I think we can safely say that Rafa’s haircut will have nothing to do with how he performs in the US Open.

    I am loving pic no.5, he is stunningly handsome here! so photogenic and we all know how much Serena admires Rafa and Johnny Mac too! Great pics, thanx..

  5. patzin says:

    These are really nice. thanks

  6. loverafa4ever says:

    Aww..Rafa is looking cute! He looks so happy but he looks tired at the same time. Very nice pics and I luvd his outfit for the USO. I hope it turns out as lucky as the one he wore at AUSO.

  7. Debbie says:

    Thanks for the great photos. I am speechless over some of them. Happy, sexy, playful Rafa. *faints*

  8. mary says:

    Yum, yummy, yummier. Rafa, you, me, “sporn” ;) :)

  9. mary says:

    2 bootilicious people. Yeah you can see the starry eyes when Sarina is near him. She definitely has the hots for Rafel. Why wouldn’t she. Lemon & Rafel mmmmmmmmmm what a combination!!! *weak at the knees here, thud*

    • Delta says:

      There’s no question she’s enamored w/Rafa, me too notice the *gleam* in her eyes. Can’t blame her no?
      She’s mentioned b4 how she loves to watch him play;) mind wandering….
      Johnny Mac “floves” him too. Lefty2lefty. Looks adorable as ever!

  10. mary says:

    Flov JMac’s shirt. Wouldn’t want to meet up with that in a dark ally!!!! He, he :)

  11. miri says:

    Serena dwarfs both of the guys! More pictures here.

  12. Atch2 says:

    Rafadorable. This makes my day.

    Rafa’s hair does look shorter but he usually tucks it under his bandana during competition though. And he looks a bit tired and slimmer but smiley, shy and beautiful as ever.

    Serena’s dress look cute too. Nike have done good with the colours. They should give Rafa one of those ‘you cannot be serious’ t-shirts from the Johnny Mac collection to wear. It’d be funny.

    Cute pic of Rafa high 5ing the kid.

    Man u r one HOT MAN!

  13. patzin says:

    Looking at the larger collection of photos, I agree that Rafi looks like he is having a good time, but he does look tired. He seems thinner to me and I like the hair cut.

    • Carol says:

      Maybe it’s the cut of the shirt and the loose shorts?

      “he does look tired” Agree, but we don’t know what other promo stuff he may have had to do. Or maybe too much playstation?? :-))

  14. Lynsey says:

    my god, is it possible for him to get any more adorable?

  15. CC says:

    Is it me, or does he look just a teeny bit awkward in these situations? Even more adorable, in a way. Shy Rafa.
    *swoons*

    The look is a little bit too “done up” for me. And the t-shirt is pee-coloured, no? Never was my favourite.
    However, LOVE Rafa’s shorter hair! Without the headband, in the windy, it will look…mmm…

    • miri says:

      If your pee is that color, you need to drink more fluids. ;)

      And yes, he looks totally uncomfortable and completely adorkable at these kind of things.

    • Carol says:

      Pee coloured…nooo…sort of manic banana. Lordy, thank you Nike, this combo really rocks. Rafa ia the absolute business and Serena thinks so too. Hee, hee. Adore him and Serena in pics 6 & 7, aah…sweet boy-girl sort of photo.

      A little bit awkward in #10, but God so kissable and yeah, he’s hot. *sigh..Rafa honey, you cannot know what your eyes do to me…and those heavenly long fingers…that mussable soft hair*

      Yes, its another Rafa-me day with no constructive work being done… can you tell I’m drooling? ;-)

      • Carol says:

        Coming back to these now I’ve seen the vid, colour is even hot, hot, hotter against that tan. *chokes into 7-alarm bell coffee*

  16. An says:

    Yup, he’s more at home on the trainings court… But shy Rafa is as attractif as any other Rafa!!!

    I think he looks great, he always does
    ( but…. sssshhht CC, i prefer the Montreal/Cincy outfit, more my colours too, but its the tennis that counts, hey? :P )

  17. CC says:

    *imagines Rafa in pic ten, no headband, no shirt*
    *stares into Rafa’s beautiful eyes*
    *moves eyes to lips…*
    *faints*

    What?! Work?! Sh*t!

    BTW, love how evident his wonky/lazy eyes are in that pic.

  18. nidserz says:

    Love Rafa’s outfit – I saw this yellow shirt at the Nike store in Dubai and was looking forward to seeing Rafa in it.
    He looks cute, but I don’t know about the hair over the bandana. Don’t think I am a fan, but I always loved shorter hair. Guess we will have to see when its all nice and sweaty during matches haha!
    None the less, Vamos Rafa!

  19. CC says:

    If you look carefully at the pics where they’re sitting down, Serena is full on knee-flirting with Rafa. Who wouldn’t want to rub up against his thigh…?
    Gosh, I only just got up!

    • An says:

      You say it… i saw it too!
      Dont worry, even in early morning, we think alike…

      • mary says:

        I saw another pic & I reckon she is full on butting her leg up against him. He doesn’t seem to mind, he’s got a nice big smile. It’s all for nike isn’t it? Well thats the excuse. He, he!!

        • CC says:

          I know, it’s more obvious in other pics! I mean, who can blame her?

          • Atch2 says:

            I didn’t notice that knee flirtg. I’m just still jealous she got a double kiss fm Rafa.

            • Nada H. T says:

              Thank you for pointing this out !

              now i am more than jealous >:(

              But you know what makes it a little bit acceptable ? :]

              It looks like Serena KNOWS

              HOW to Make Our RAFA HAPPY ! :)))

              Rafa needs to laugh and feel young because He IS !
