    Have Rafa’s pecs gotten bigger, or his shirts smaller? ;)

    Rafa is looking manly with his facial hair. I wonder how many pics you look at just to pick these 24. Great collection, thanks as always.

    besides these photos being awesome, so are you’re pic descriptions! i nearly died laughing at “talk to the hand” & “forehand w/eyebrows!” nice.

    Great pics as always, Rafa does look more cuddly here, “now you have won Rafa, can you please shave? me likes baby faced Rafa the best”!

    Luv the luggage he carries to court. Everything but the kitchen sink.
    Did anyone also see when he went off for the first rain delay, he took an unfinished bottle of water from in front of him and placed it in the fridge. Rafa, you’re so green.

    Luv Armada hugs at the net, and the smiles that replace the game-face at the end.

      Did they show me in the blue bag? ;)

      I FLOVE #5!
      I had that same expression on my face this morning when my boys were giving me crap because I had my shirt on inside out.
      *shakes angry fist at whoever invented tagless shirts*

    Unshaven, unruly hair, two bags, racquet… Rafa looks like a homeless person…

    I can look at these pix and wear a stupid smile on my face forever ;P

    Gosh, I can’t believe I missed all these on Sunday. I’m behind! :)

    If I talk to Rafa’s hand, you think it’ll do what I ask it to…?
