World's first ever game of tennis on water

The World’s first ever game of tennis on water involving two of the World’s highest profile tennis players, Rafael Nadal of Spain and Serena Williams of USA in action during a Sony Ericsson Open tennis preview event on the swimming pool of the Hotel Gansevoort on March 24, in Miami South Beach, Florida.


Djokovic after his Madrid 2009 Semi with Rafa: “Next time I’ll probably take two rackets on the match point and try to hit with both of them. It’s frustrating that when you play so well you can’t win.”

Not first thing in the morning, please. I don't want to see certain people in swimsuits, Metis.

Winter parkas would be a lot better for some of them.

Hiya, btw. Hope you are good.

I disagree, well partly that is; I'm not curious to see Serena in a bikini that's for sure...

Kitty! I seem to miss you every time you come by the chat thread...

Yeah, yeah- I know. Nadal Form Appreciation runs wild here. Girls are so predictable.

I will be there- around until Wednesday, so I will harrass you at night then, like always.

Of course I was, no really...

Come on- I can't get into it. Rafa looks like he's doing his best impression of Stéphane Lambiel.

I like his new outfit. Maybe not entirely sold on the headband, but white pants =

The blue I like. The white pantaloons, not so much. White pants always look comparatively tighter on people- like sausage-casing-I-can't-breathe-too-tight, kind of thing.

I've always been scared of clowns and people in tight white pants.

No disrespect to Rafa. He is a flexible, stylish young man.

Love the blue and the white. Better a blue headband though.

Who, I might add, was robbed!

Can't believe that result.

Hmm, whereas for Rafa I tend to favour "the tighter the better" approach

Different strokes and all that
