Ooodles more here.

And I think I finally figured out one of the things that’s making these photos look different: the light in the stadium must be very even and diffuse. The shadows, when there are any, are fairly faint.

    Rafa is always teasing us with the thigh porn.

    I’ve never really noticed the mesh panels on the inner legs but they look a bit weird. Wonder if they really help.

    Luv a tape-free tummy.

    Osports are great with so much variety and details. The shirt change alone was much appreciated by me.

    And Miri’s right, u have no loose hair to tuck behind ur ears Rafa. So stop it.

    Yep they are perfect pics indeed. Whatever it is, it’s working, as they are sooooooo clear. The lime on him looks so inviting. I think I just might. Muchas gracias Rafa be there in a jiffy. ;) ;)

    gorgeous yes…. but doesn’t anyone else feel like those shorts are just hideous. I suppose if I get paid millions to endorse Nike, i’ll wear anything they tell me to. I think he still looks best in all white like his Wimbledon gear. Really shows off his amazing skin tone. Ciao everyone.

      Yes, totally agree. Absolutely hideous. Even on someone who can make almost anything look good. They should be removed and burned. Plenty of volunteers, I’m sure!

    Knee porn, thigh porn, so much Rafa porn and that’s all we need, no? (Apart from him winning his matches, of course!)

    And is it me or are those shorts slightly lower in the…ahem…tummy area? Not that I mind.
