    Oh, you know, it’s sooo uncool to tie shoe laces unless it’s absolutely necessary… ;)

      Hah, do you know that you realy can buy tennis shoes where youre not even suppose to tie the laces!!

    • miri says:

      I’m too old to know or care about such things…

      • CC says:

        Me too! Really. I ALWAYS tie my shoe laces. ;)

        • An says:

          I didnt mean to make you look old-fashioned or so that you want people to tie theire shoe laces :) Sorry!
          It totally surprised me too, the first time i saw tennis shoes where youre not supposed to tie the laces!

          I always tie mine when playing tennis and i don’t buy the shoes where youre not supposed to… and i would want Rafa to tie them too! Way to dangerous not!
          The shoes do look verry new tough, maybe he wont risk blisters??;)

          • CC says:

            Hah, don’t worry, An! I was only being silly, as per usual. I guess it would be very stupid if Rafa didn’t tie his shoe laces when playing a match, but when doing this I don’t really care. ;)
            Normally though, when having finished a match, that’s one of the first thing he does, untie his shoes, no?

            • An says:

              OK, pfffffwwww;) Yeah, he does. I gues the shoes are verry tight for maximum support… i always start complaing when my shoes get older that i dont feel enough support from them anymore:)

          • Ch F says:

            Well, if he bothers to put his bottles in the right order and zip his bags every single time, I’m guessing he probably ties his shoe laces too ;-)

  4. Isabelle says:

    Yes, perfect legs, perfect everything! And I like the second shot, a diff look, thoughtful and cute. Are any of the other guys as generous with their time and the kids as Rafa??

    Where did i put that Absolut Mandarin Vodka … I just got this overwhelming desire for a little orange martini. I don’t know why?

    Don’t you just love the T. God he’s looking hotter than hell. *pants*
    And you also get to have a good look at his racquet. The strings are definitely new & now the racquet handle is black. So is this the new racquet? Or is just new strings?

    • mary says:

      Also, maybe I’m not awake yet, but his racquet handle looks shorter as well?

    • miri says:

      Re the handle color, he just probably doesn’t have an overwrap on it because he figured he wasn’t going to get too sweaty hitting with kiddos.

    So sweet.

    I thought Rafa would stand out in the crowd, but it seems bright, loud colours are the new trend?

    Rafa and tots is always a natural combo. Good he didn’t have the urge to lift or throw any around.
