SPANISH ARMADA FEATURE IN MARIE CLAIRE
Members of the Spanish Armada appear in September's edition of Marie Claire in a seven-page feature.
, David Ferrer
, Carlos Moya
, Fernando Verdasco
and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez
reveal their professional ambitions and life outside of the court in the feature entitled ‘Sex Point’.
The young, good-looking members of the sports elite appear in the Spanish edition of the monthly women's magazine.
World No. 8 Robredo, who captured his fifth career singles title in Sopot this year, said: “Thank god I come from a small village in Spain. I don't waste money on extravagant things: designer clothes, houses or cars. Being a professional hasn't changed me and I really hope it won't ever."
Ferrer reveals he is a literature lover and keeps every book he reads. His favorite is Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet and he read it in three days.
The 25-year-old also comments on a harsh truth about professional tennis. "Not being Nadal or Federer, you need to learn how to lose and to not make it to the final every time," he said.
Garcia-Lopez explains: "I didn't have any girlfriends as a teenager. I was living away from my parents in Barcelona and was very introverted. I have been two years with my girlfriend now and even if the wedding is still far away, it'll come."
While Moya, who turns 31 on August 27, insists even after 13 seasons as a professional there is even room for improvement.
“Even if I am 30 I still feel I can do a lot more,” said the former World No. 1. “When you see you are able to play on the world’s best tennis courts week after week, it means you can still compete and there is no reason to stop..."
"I thank God for having been able to get a lot more that I've ever dreamt about. I started traveling when I was 17, and it's difficult to leave your house and be so far away from you loved ones.
“It's happened to me many times to wake up from a nap not knowing where I was and if it was day or night time. I am now aware that I have a few years left in this and that I have to give my best."
