sorry, i didn't post for a long time, i come back from far...
Wow ! I come back from very far too and had not seen all these pics. I thought this thread was for "Off-court pics" or something like that. I agree with you Dionisienne. Rafa who wanted so much a private life will have to hide or will have to accept that he will be followed everywhere by paparazzi, even on his island which seemed to be the last place he could get some rest and some peace. It's not the case any more, unfortunately.
I really don't now I would feel being followed all the time by paparazzi, on the streets, in the stores, on the beach, coming out from my house, coming back home. Gee ... But one thing is sure, Rafa himself (well ... I don't read tabloids I must say) did not say a single word about his relationship with Francesca. NOTHING ! I think his silence says a lot ...
And it's even worst now, because I certainly would not have seen these pics if it was of Internet where you find everything. And the more people will take these pics and post them on different forums, less privacy Rafa will have. It's a life of a star, he has to deal with that and from what we know from him, he still wants to have a private life, but it will be more and more difficult. I only hope that even if he is happy in love (and I wish them all the best), it will not distract him from his first passion, tennis, and from the goals he wants to reach.
