    Love your captions on the photos miri! The “Cutie!” one is my fav :) I like Rafa in the blue instead of the green jacket. Please get some rest & eat some gambas Rafa. Vamos!

    Some really great captions on these pics, thanks, they made me smile, specially love #13, his face! LOL! Looks as though he can’t decide whether to have a toddler tantrum or not tee hee :)

    a little sad when I woke up this morning to find out that Nole won. Oh well. I take comfort in his #1 ranking. Get some gambas Rafa. xoxo

    Sure were a lot of backhand pics in that group. Nole must have hit few to his lethal forehand (didn’t see the match ‘cuz it was at 2am! and have no recording ability). Sorry for Rafa! But great season so far and #1!!

    Could those sweats the ball kids had to wear be any frumpier?? Once I saw a ball girl in a really cute dress, but I think they had to wear the saggy sweats almost all of the time.

    By the way, great captions too! So entertaining and they definitely add to the photos. “Cutie!” is my favorite too. :-)

    I believe Rafa has 10 trophies and 2 plates this year. Not bad.

    I forgot Monte Carlo – Rafa has 3 plates this year.

    I also loved the pics and your captions Miri! “Cutie” is also my favourite pic…but LOL at “This plushie sticking out of the top of the trophy doesn’t look…weird, does it?” and “Um. You are right. That does look….odd” – because it did look seriously “odd” and a bit rude really!

    I haven’t been brave enough to look at the photos until now. These are fantastic pics as usual, thanks Miri!

    I think #4 is my favourite, but i also really like #’s: 10, 13, & 22.
    As someone above mentions there are lots of really expressive backhands here, think #2 is my favourite of them.
