    hee! Hadn’t seen this vid, not sure I realized just how far down the shorts were! Lots of loud screamage for the shirt change :)

    I watched this over live stream and proceeded to freak out, bash myself for not buying tix to this day’s match, and then oogle/drool all over myself…

    Rafa tummy rub would totally been worth the money. Stupid, stupid, girl.

    I saw this, it was so funny, first Rafa’s on the floor having his tummy seen to, then Almagro says to himself, “what the hell, I’ll take one too”, or at least that was what it looked like lol.. then Rafa looks round as if to say “wtf, what is this, if you can’t beat them join them?” first time I have seen this on a tennis court I have to say.

    Hehe, I swear, only Rafa can make a MTO so entertaining. I remember this well, the DJ for that tourney had such a sense of humor. When Rafa was speaking to the trainer, the DJ blasted ‘Mama Mia’ (no doubt especially for Rafa :D). As Rafa and Almagro were receiving treatment he played the ER theme (classic!). Then, during the shirt change he blasted “I’m Too Sexy For My Shirt”. LOL! I floved how the crowd jumped up in insane cheers when Rafa took of his shirt. Almagro just turned to see what the fuss was about and all he could do was shake his head and laugh.

    Another funny moment, was how they decided that it was of utmost importance to show a replay in slo-mo of Rafa taking off his shirt and the women in the audiences jumping out of their seats, hands in the air, and shamelessly taking out their camera’s to take photos. ROFLOL! Hysterical!

    Plus, Rafa totally used the crowds enthusiasm to boost his energy level and close out the match. Rafa can make anything fun and into a party! XD

      Argh! I hate misusing apostrophes! “cameraS”.

      An ‘Edit’ button would do wonders Miri for these minor boo-boos.

        You can’t edit your post unless the system is sure it’s you. Otherwise, people might go around editing each others posts willy-nilly.

        Only way to let the system know who are are is to create an account (see teeeny-tiny “login” link at the bottom of any page) and then to login when you come to the site.

    Love that the music that they have through the speakers when treating Almagro and Rafa is the theme song from ER! And then with the Rafa shirt change, “I’m to sexy”. Cheeky DJ ;)

    • Eliana says:

      Wrote the same thing as Mim, sorry! I’m king of a slow “typer” I think!

      • Eliana says:

        “kind” dammit!

        • Mim says:

          LOL Eliana, no problemo, this kind of awesomeness needs mentioning twice!

          That DJ was so hysterical. I remember during when of Fed’s boring night matches, and I’m not just saying that, it reallly WAS boring. In fact, Fed HIMSELF looked like he was about to fall asleep on his face. Anyway, as Fed slumped in his chair with a bored look on his face, and as live spectators began snoring, the DJ decided that the most appropriate song-choice was Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. Oh how I laughed till my spleen burst! Absolutely hilarious! And they showed a shot of Fed slumping in his chair and he didn’t even blink. That DJ deserves some kind of award. Amazing sense of humor!

          Also, when Rafa was walking onto court for his first match at the USO, the DJ blasted “I’m Walking on Sunshine”. How fitting! Weren’t we all walking on sunshine to see Rafa on a tennis court. *loves*

    Those guys who do the music must of had a selection just for Rafa. :)

    • Emma says:

      I think I read somewhere that he specifically asked them to stop playing “Matador” when he walked onto court – for which I can’t blame him as it must have been excruciating.

      The duo injury scene with Almagro was hilarious, especially when the trainer more or less got on top of him to adjust his back. It was like a cross between Greco-Roman wrestling and a scene from “Power Tool 7” (or some such, not an expert or anything). Whole scenario reminded me of that line from Dylan Thomas, “Side by withered side like two kippers in a box”.

    I hadn’t realized the DJ was so quick with the right song! Brilliant!

    *flove* when they announce that Nicolas is taking a medical timeout and Rafa tries to look over to see what’s going on with him, but I guess can’t really see much because of the position he is in. It’s like “WTF is wrong with HIM now…” ;)

    (When they pulled Rafa’s shorts down for this I remember jumping up and down on the sofa from excitement and partner looking over just shaking his head…)

    Scrumptious and a little sad.

    WOW. Those shorts were really really pulled down low, in fact Rafa had to unzip to have that lower ab area bandaged. WOW. Really low. I mean really really low. I hadn’t realised. This vid should hve a rating. At least it leaves something to the imagination, no?

    No wonder u can’t hve women Trainers for the mens competition.

    If there were ball girls they’d probably faint.

    Luv the music.

    Rafa’s matches r so lively and fun. The crowd weren’t even complaining abt the MTO and the waiting.
