    I think Julian Finney of Getty Images might have a little crush on Rafa.

      And bless him for it.

    • Atch2 says:

      Julien got the best seat too.

    • tiemyshoe says:

      I see that Rafa is using the tried and true “Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct” method of diverting the press corps. I see your game, Rafa. Well-played indeed.

      • tiemyshoe says:

        Random shallow note: I’m glad Rafa hasn’t over-waxed his eyebrows. I prefer them to look a little naturally bushy than manscaped to death.

        Also, freckles <3333

        • Atch2 says:

          I recommend to avoid Japan bec I think the men there over tweeze their eyebrows & it freaked me out abit.

      • miri says:

        Is “game” a euphemism for something and I should look for more details in the photos? ;)

        RE the eyebrows – I’m just happy if he takes care of the uni-brow. Nothing else is needed.

        “I see that Rafa is using the tried and true “Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct” method”

        You nailed it!! :D XD

        The disappointment when first reading your comment about Rafa doing a Sharon Stone and then NOT actually seeing any…erm…*fuzzy balls* when looking at the photos was quite overwhelming. :D

    Thigh porn heaven. Pls someone bless us with a vid of Rafa feeling his legs.

    Rafa, sunscreen can help prevent freckes, even though it does look cute on you.

    Oh those pink lips.

  3. Isabelle says:

    OMG, Rafa is just gorgeous, knees and all…couldn’t care less about the watch.

    omg I don’t usually comment on this but…. love the freckles adorable

  6. Jaspreet says:

    wow i think i’m gonna have a heart-attack after watching such hot and sexy pics of Rafa.

  7. CC says:

    I’ve finally moved on to the other three pics. Gosh, those hands… And the teeth! I so want to run the tip of my tongue along them!
    The freckles ARE adorable, but thinking that’s sun damage right there.

  8. Marilyn Wasserman says:

    H’mmm, thw watch was on the right wrist for practice, now on the left wrist for presser? Is he undecided or is that the decision? And what about the wristband? Inquiring minds want to know!

    • teejustice says:

      I think Rafa normally wears his watch on the left (trying to recall those struggles with the timeforce watch after matches – was that left or right.) Perhaps he is more comfortable wearing on the right while playing since he plays lefty ???

      • aRafaelite says:

        Yes, he normally wears his watch on his left wrist, that’s how I first realised he’s right-handed. But presumably not while playing!

  9. faeaki7 says:

    Didn’t notice watch just gorgeous Rafa and yeah those lllipS! are lovely! love it when we see his legs…. *scrolls back up to check out the watch* see ya!

  10. GB says:

    OMFG Rafa is soooo pretty. Flove when he crosses his legs (not least because it highlights Rafathigh!).

    More pictures here.

    • teejustice says:

      Thanks. Rafa looks like Uncle Toni is #9 of this set – in Toni’s familiar interview pose

      That first pic of Gasquet is nice. Never much paid attention to his looks before but I noticed that one

      • miri says:

        I’m totally loving the “zoom” feature on that site…Rafa presser pictures big enough to almost almost fill up my screen is worth putting up with all those little watermarks…

        • teejustice says:

          ahh…very, very nice. thanks for the tip ;D

        • Eliana says:

          Thanks miri! I need industrial quantities of Rafa these days to evade “real life”.

          And teejustice, I’ve always found Richard handsome, but that 3rd photo is awesome :)

        • An says:

          Oh Miri…. What have you learned me now..

          I’m supposed to get some work done today but now i’m verry tempted to explore evry little Rafadetail zoomed in 100%;)

          • CC says:

            OMG, I was just doing the same! OH. MY. GOD!!! The leg hair zoomed in is just intriguing. And the hands…dios mio, I want to bite those fingers.

            Luckily, I am not at work.

            • An says:

              Yeah, totally what got me too…. the leg hair and the hands……
              Dios Mio, yes bite those fingers…. and i can come up whit a whole lot more i want to do with those finger or want to do those fingers to me…

              • CC says:

                And look, he’s got chest hairs peeping out at the neck. That’s the ultimate sign that he’s a maaan and not a boy anymore. I am verrry happy for this, no? :D

                • An says:

                  Si, oh CC, our minds totally work alike, No?
                  I noticed it and tought, hell yes, he’s a maaaan!

        • Atch2 says:

          Thanks for the tip as well Miri.
          Bet the zoom function was overused in the thigh shots. It was with me.

          Looking at everyones photos, no one looked happy to be there, even the French dudes. And I don’t think the small mini stage crowded with 2 other people helped.

    • Atch2 says:

      Rafa looks wonderful, even when grumpy looking. That smile comes with sparkles in the eyes ;)

      Does the transcript-taking guy really have to sit that close to Murray?

  12. Necitas says:

    These presser photos look a lot better than the video. Rafa looked hot in almost all the pictures but why is it that in the video it turned out to be a grouchy Rafa? :) *shugs*
