    Btw is that xisca knocking those balls around in bare feet with that enormous ring?
    And isn’t it cute to see Papa Williams having a hit & of course collecting the balls for his gals.

    • An says:

      I don’t think thats Xisca. I guess she’s back home by now cause school is starting again!

      • Atch2 says:

        That’s not Xisca. Think she part of the Williams team.
        Xisca’s still here. Saw a pix of her during the Gasquet match.

    How could anyone suggest Rafa’s haircut looks like Fed? Don’t think so. He looks so cute opening his award.

    Was Rafa practicing with Nole? If yes, it will b gud for Rafa. I wonder why Murray is not practicing with him this time around. And dat award looks very nice…

    I can’t stop saying how nice it is to see him so happy and “colm”.

  7. mary says:

    Remember Rafa it is only used for opening letters. Keep the “colm”. ;) ;)

  8. aRafaelite says:

    He’s obviously used to getting another pair of socks for Christmas from great aunt so-and-so, because that was a very big smile for a letter opener!

  9. CC says:

    Heh, he gets STRAIGHT in there with the pressie and then asks “Shall I open it here?”.

  10. Nada H. T says:

    He does like to show them how much he appreciates their trophy

    no matter how small or useless it is.. I love this in him :)

    Sooo Rafa .. to be generous with others by making them happy

    • Atch2 says:

      U could get him an envelope to complete the set and he would probably hug u for it. That comes from being brought up right. Great manners.

      Rafadorable. Again.

      • Nada H. T says:

        “That comes from being brought up right. Great manners”

        Atch2 .. You Said It .. it’s the way he’s been brought up :)

    Sorry – I don’t get all the mocking of this award. Surely the inscription is more important than the trophy itself? Rafa clearly appreciates the thought behind it, and I doubt that the ITWA is a very rich organisation which can afford flashy trophies. I think it’s great that they recognised Rafa in this way.

  12. Carol says:

    Rafa looks so shy here, at the start.

    Rafa’s so gentle even opening a package – see how carefully he unwraps the paper. Some people would have just ripped the paper off.

    I am sure this will mean just as much as his trophies.

    Is he saying “can I open it here / now?” That is so lovely.

    And love the joke about one could kill someone with that. :-))

  13. ally says:

    i knw why they say his hair looks like fed. Cos the fringe is hanging over the headband. thats fed’d style.

  14. Atch2 says:

    I bet Maymo is happy that Rafa doesn’t do his leg stretches across his trainer’s chest like Nole.

    • mary says:

      And this has something to do with a letter opener? Atch2 your mind troubles me. Maymo, Rafa, embossed letter opener the connection is perfectly clear. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm :) ;)

    • CC says:

      Yeah, saw that as well Atch2, Nole is very flexible, no? Maybe Rafa does them as well, who knows?

      • mary says:

        CC & Atch2 I missed it totally. Sounds a we bit strange. Maybe we could ask if we could volunteer with his training. *Imagines many scenerios, faints*
