Wow, really great photos, Thanks Miri! Hard to pick favourites, they’re all good.
But i will try, coz that’s what i do re photos. :)
1-3 are just classic “at work” Rafa, plus 5 Six is gorgeous – i’d use it as my wallpaper, but it would scare me, or i’d laugh all the time, and the people around me who think Rafa’s a twerp would not understand and would use it against me!
7 is great – the slide into b’hand is postcard perfect 9 i love – both eyes def. on the ball in this one 11 too, i always love his serve toss photos
Of the last ones, think i’ll take 17 & 18
Is it just me, or is Rafa actually better looking on clay? (red clay)
It’s not you..he is ;)
**I mean, it’s not just you..he is defnitely looking better on (red) clay.
I agree, the warm color of the clay compliments his beautiful skin tone.
I really, really, really wish that the practice of playing with a tennis ball in the pocket of your shorts would be abolished. For aesthetic reasons mainly, but also just the other day it interfered with match play (remember the Mayer incident). Okay, my main beef is that ugly bulge that spoils the lines of otherwise lovely tennis players legs. There, I said it.
