Muy feliz!! Rafa and trophy bring so much joy to the world. They even helped me survival a dental checkup this morning! Onto RG we go! Vamos!
“survive”. Too feliz ;P
I LOVE all the photos..but No.22 is taken at a nice angle with ROMA on the Clay! AMAZING!
Here’s an even better version of Rafa hunching over his trophy:
Nice! thanks JC! :o)
Gorgeous. Shame his arms are in the way, though. ;)
Hahaha! Psssst CC, i know its hard to not imagine him sitting there nekid……. but he has his shorts on here girl! :D
Happy Rafa with a trophy is THE most adorable thing in the world. Vamos Rafa,Felicitaciones!!
Miri, agree with #16 – would make an awesome site banner. And as usual great photos!
There’s just something about the red clay reflected in the silver trophy that gives Rafa’s skin such a gorgeous golden glow… or is it the glow of his happiness shining from the inside out?! Either way, photos of Rafa, clay, biting and trophies are always a winning combination!
So happy for Rafa! And #2…heh heh. “Enjoy the plate.”
There was a moment during the trophy ceremony — I think he was thanking his father — when Rafa had the most intense and beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. He looked different and even more beautiful (if that’s possible). I wish I knew how to do screen grabs.
Anyway, so so happy and thrilled for his victory. I feel like the specter of last year is finally gone!
Fabulous pics, extremely happy stunningly gorgeous Rafa. What more can I say. Pics #7,12 & 14 are my favourites.
Wow, these pics are amazing, he gets better looking with every new trophy, sexy smile:)
Thanks for all of the funny captions, esp #2 & 5!!!
I really like #1: what a sweet smile, and Novak watching Rafa so intently.
I like #3 as well – it’s almost like a candid shot of them, a moment when they’re not aware of being watched.
“Enjoy the plate” wins caption of the day. Although, “Looking for a place to nibble”s not bad either. And that’s a beautiful image too.
“It’s mine and you can’t have it” works really well also – smiley Rafa, Nole in background and then the audience behind them.
Mmm…trophies really suit Rafa. Plates really don’t. :)
