    Miri, unless Rafa has suddenly changed to a double-handed forehand, I think #2 is a backhand ;)

    Btw. if you can find the time, it would be so nice to have some photos of Rafa’s recent trophybitings in the header. RG 2012 never made it there either. Just a suggestion! :)

    I still think that is the ugliest trophy ever. Maybe Rafa shouldn’t really bite that one!!

    Love the last photo, he’s almost drowning in ball kids!

    Thanks for the everything Miri – again love your analysis.
    I also commented on Wawrinka’s performance this season he is a fierce competitor. Rafa’s victory is a meaningful one.

    PS Giving birth to a racket is a painful affair… as we can infer from photo number 10!

    For some reason i really like #2. I mean i REALLY like it!
    There’s something so very *rafaplayingtennis* about it. Yeah it’s good.

    Taking a selfie? is just gorgeous, and holding it high.

    He even loves his ugly children gets the caption of the batch award, although Stan hiding his giggle certainly gets a special mention!

    That is one ugly trophy! Whatever where they thinking of to design that? Originality?

    Congrats Rafa, all the best for Rome!

      Ion Tiriac isn’t known for good taste. One thing’s for sure – Rafa doesn’t have another one like it. Last time he won Madrid he and Roger got the twin salad plates.
