    Lots of grumpiness, but loving them anyway. Good to see a smile in the end, after the match.

    Rafa was VERY grumpy in the match but at least he won :)

    Love your photo captions Miri! BTW knee porn very hot, but not as hot as thigh porn ;p…

    How exactly does he always manage to make these crazy colors look less “colorblind Barbie” and more “deliciously sorbet”? Yum.

    He looks great smiley and pissed off. And his smiles/laughs during his play with the tots is infectious. The colours are just soooo Rafa. The photos fm AO are gonna fabulous.

    It’s also frustrating that I can’t get into the official website bec I would luv to read or watch his interviews.

      Exactly. The presser is nowhere to be seen! Where are the VID or reports or transcripts?? Puzzling…

        Nothing puzzling about it – different tournaments have different practices when it comes to videos and transcripts of pressers. This is a smaller tournament and I’m not surprised at all there they don’t have a transcriptionist there.
