Rafa for the Rafettes!!

12 Mar

I promised a few chicas I’d post more Rafa stuff. And like the man himself those chicas were super polite and patient so I figure they deserve a reward. I have checked with my Raf-o-meter (first port of call for verification on all things Rafel) and I guess these pics are worth posting although I’m guessing being such avid Rafa & Armada fans as you all are you may have seen them.

One Spaniard Down Already (partly…)

12 Mar

So my T.V. Coverage of Indian Wells hasn’t even started yet and already Feliciano is out of the singles 😦 But I have just read that he is playing doubles today with… wait for it… Milos Raonic (?! – I can’t be the only one who finds that a little surprising/odd/confusing, can I?). Anyways they’ll play the Bryans around 9pm tonight (5am Sunday in the UK) on Stadium 3.

David, Rafa and Fernando are also in singles action today. Rafa will face Russian qualifier, Rik de Voest around 5pm (1am Sunday in the UK) on Stadium 1. Also, Rafa & Marc Lopez won their doubles match against, Fyrstenberg & Matkowski yesterday. Fernando will face wild card, Richard Berankis on Stadium 2 at 11am today (7pm tonight in the UK). And last but definitely not least, David will face Croatin, Ivo Karlovic on Stadium 3 at around 1pm (9pm tonight in the UK).

VAMOS CHICOS!

Third Rubber: Fer & Feli vs. Darcis & Rochus

12 Mar

Better late than never I guess… sorry guys 😦 Anyways Feli and Fer won as I’m sure you are all aware by now. They won 7-6, 6-4, 6-3. In the dead rubbers (best of 3 sets & sadly no pics) Rafa won against Rochus 6-4, 6-2 and Feli lost 7-6, 6-7, 6-7. Spain will face the USA away from home in the quarters. Well Done Chicos!!

Fan Pics!

5 Mar

I have some pics to share with you guys. The pics belong to my lovely friend Sarah (@mi_sangre). The pics include David (Stuttgart Final 2006, versus Acasuso) and Rafa (Barcelona 2007, Singles Final vs. Canas and Doubles Final with Tomeu vs. Pavel and Waske). They are oldies but definately goodies. Thanks Sarah! *kiss*

Day 10 Australian Open Results/Pictures!

26 Jan

Well today’s match was both happy and sad. I’m thrilled for David but at the same time it’s never nice to see a player you love visibly hurting. Let’s hope that Rafa’s injury is not serious and he can be back with us soon, the tour is not the same without him. And as for me I am hoping David can make it all the way to the final 😀 The score was 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 by the way.

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

VAMOS CHICOS!
