Happy Birthday Mari!

12 Mar

Because it's the lovely Marika's Birthday & I heart her! Hope all your wishes come true!


Hello Everyone!

21 Feb

Hi folks!

To everyone who asked, I am good. I will be back blogging later this week. I have missed my blog and you 🙂

The blog will remain pretty much as is, still about the Armada, still mainly based on Rafa, David, Feli and Fer. As always will do my best to include the other Spanish players but my time is limited (as much as I have tried I still haven’t found someone who wants to pay me to oggle/write about tenista’s, lol). I am thinking of changing my name on twitter though, to what I haven’t decided yet. Maybe you guys have some suggestions?

As always thanks for reading & love and hugs to you all! 🙂

Feliciano Lopez rompió mi corazón

2 Feb

Feliciano Lopez has broken my little heart and the heart of my blog too. For those of you who don’t already know, Feli “unfollowed” me on twitter which sucks badly 😦 And to be perfectly honest I don’t really want to be on here posting about him so give me some time and I will try to get back to blogging but I can’t make any promises. Let’s face it a blog about the Armada which didn’t include him would be ridiculous.

And to those who sent me such charming emails as “get a life”, “grow up” and “you are a bitch & your blog sucks”, all I can say is it’s my life and i’m not asking you to live it, it’s my blog and nobody is making you read it!!

And finally A HUGE THANK-YOU to everyone who has sent me lovely supportive messages, especially my Kitty Kat, love you girl!

Day 8 Australian Open Results!

24 Jan

Good day today, both Spaniards through, shame they have to play eachother next though 😦 I saw David’s match but couldn’t watch Rafa’s as I had to go to College (Boo… Hiss…). Even although David lost the first set he still played well and dominated the next three sets after that. I’ve been really impressed with how he’s playing in Aus and also in New Zealand. The Quarter-final match against Rafa should be a cracker!! The results in full:

Rafael Nadal (ESP)  def.  Marin Cilic (CRO)

6-2, 6-4, 6-3


Milos Raonic (CAN)  lost to.  David Ferrer (ESP)

6-4, 2-6, 3-6, 4-6



Day 7 Australian Open Results!

23 Jan

I have nothing to say except my little heart still aches. Hope Fernando gets better soon. The results in full:

Tommy Robredo (ESP)  lost to.  Roger Federer (SUI)

3-6, 6-3, 3-6, 2-6


Nicolas Almagro (ESP)  lost to.  Novak Djokovic (SRB)

3-6, 4-6, 0-6


Tomas Berdych (CZE)  def.  Fernando Verdasco (ESP)

6-4, 6-2, 6-3


Good Luck in your next tournaments sweeties!

Day 6 Australian Open Results!

22 Jan

So yesterday/this morning I managed to see the doubles match, Guillermo and David’s match. Sadly I didn’t see Rafa’s match 😦 The most entertaining match has to go to Feli/Pico. Talk about drama!! There was a fair few body serves exchanged as well as some heated words but the best thing was lots of Felicious smiles 🙂 So David’s match was a straight forward one, he won in straight sets with a very strong and convincing performance. And Lastly Guillermo just never seemed to get going. The second point of the match he won with a ‘tweener’ and then from there it all seemed to go wrong but Andy Murray was in amazing form.

The results in full:

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP)  lost to.  Andy Murray (GBR)

1-6, 1-6, 2-6


Rafael Nadal (ESP)  def.  Bernard Tomic (AUS)

6-2, 7-5, 6-3

Three Spaniards played today and three Spaniards won today 🙂 First up Fer and Kei, it’s great to see Fernando back close to his best. He’s making some heart stopping shots and I hope it continues.
