yeah Rafa is sweet...

well as it turns out, the oop I gave you was actually for Thursday (sorry!)...he beat Jonathan García Leo 6-2 6-3

Yesterday he lost to Q. Muñoz 6-4 7-6(0) but won the doubles with Albert Costa against Diaz/Muñoz 6-3 6-1

here's a pic from the tournament:

Rafa's selling point is his butt... but he does absolutely nothing for me.

Regardless, thanks for the scores and stuff, Emilita!

11-13-2004, 06:20 AM
yeah I agree...he has quite a good body, but I wouldn't say he's hot or sexy. He's just cute in a babyish way. When he plays doubles with Tommy they look so cute together haha

:D Yep, they must be the cutest doubles team I can think of! hahaha! :D

But Rafa is changing.....we've seen him grow up very fast and turning into quite a goodlooking young man! ;) :rolleyes: hahaha, that makes me sound old....hahahaha :rolleyes:

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 11:59 AM
really? I think Tommy has a boyish look about him...though in the last few years that I've known him he has looked more tired and pressured which probably makes him look a bit older. He used to be far more smiley and carefree

Well...If you had seen him as close as I did in Basel, you would probably change your mind...There's definitely something hot about him, in the way he moves, in the way he looks at you... :devil: If one day you cross his look, you'll tell me if you still think the same ! ;)

Of course I do ! He doesn't look the same on TV and in real...But it's quite hard to account for actually, you have to experience it yourself to understand what I mean...

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 02:21 PM
lol! ok...well I have seen him quite a few times at tournaments. He and his uncle are really sweet...I just don't find him sexy...good body and very cute, but not sexy...I would call someone like Carlos Moyà sexy ;)

Hmmmm maybe it's because he's still young.. he'll look sexier when he matures more ;) I find him cute too..

Eruwen
11-13-2004, 02:49 PM
Well, that's what he does ! hahahaha, I haven't been the same since Rosmalen 2003!!! (we should move to Tommy's corner hahaha) :rolleyes: So I've noticed! And believe me... it was the last thing I expected to happen! :scratch: Maybe you're right about the moving thing... :lol: But I do'n't think they're very strict about that here... I hope!

Actually... I think Tommy looks older! When I first saw him on tv this year, I thought he was 25 or 26!

Which match? :aplot:
I saw him playing against Llodra in Ordina Open on TV first time,I haven't thought he was old,I was just shocked he was quite rude like some argentine football players :eek::crazy:

Eruwen
11-13-2004, 03:13 PM
Tommy? Rude? :eek: Are we talking about the same Tommy-Toy here??? :rolleyes: Well, I must say... he was a bit aggresive in Madrid! Spitting, throwing his raquet around... I'm not really a fan of that kind of behaviour actually...

He only play against Roddick in US open this year.Possibly you saw that match.

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 03:23 PM
lol yes I can well imagine he was rude...I get very annoyed when that happens. Once I told him that he shouldn't do that sort of thing like spitting and throwing the raquet all the time...and then the next time I saw him play live which was in Stuttgart this year he only threw the raquet once and even then he looked at me with this scared/ashamed look haha was so funny. It's just a shame because he was never like this before. I think perhaps it's his new coach making him more aggressive. He wasn't as bad with Mico...

I♥PsY@Mus!c

Tommy? Rude? :eek: Are we talking about the same Tommy-Toy here??? :rolleyes:

I think he was a cute and good boy but I saw him spitting,throwing the racqet,looking quite angry sometimes which I haven't expected. :eek: But now I accept his behavior,maybe his coach teaches him!!! ;)

Eruwen
11-13-2004, 03:26 PM
I heard that from more people, that he wasn't like that before. I don't mind when people play aggresive, I actually like that. But other than that... Just behave yourself! It's not the raquet's fault that you're messing up :lol:

Eruwen

Ya,his coach is an Argentine.So I believe he tell him to do. :yeah:

11-13-2004, 03:31 PM
Poor guy!! :lol:

yes, but I have always been totally honest with him and there's no point just saying nice things to him if they're not genuine...in something like this, he needs to be told because it's not good for his image

Eruwen
11-13-2004, 03:32 PM
yeah most definitely...he has changed so much in the last few years. His play may have improved but I don't think his personality has Maybe he needs a woman in his life to take care of that :lol:

I think when you're in a position like he is, you need some people around you who keep you down to earth.

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 03:35 PM
for sure...all these players need to remember that it's not just about playing...they're there as role models for children and also have to remember to be nice people

I♥PsY@Mus!c
11-13-2004, 03:40 PM
I wonder what's his response when you told his behavior change so much?

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 03:44 PM
actually his behaviour did get better! as I said, in Germany when I saw him he was much nicer...I haven't seen him since then so I don't know what his behaviour's been like

Eruwen
11-13-2004, 03:47 PM
for sure...all these players need to remember that it's not just about playing...they're there as role models for children and also have to remember to be nice people Definitely! And you also have to ask yourself if it's worth it... I mean, you can drastically change your personality and everything you're about to improve your game, but is it worth it?

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 03:53 PM
yes exactly...if your whole personality is sacrificed because you want to succeed then it's definitely not worth it! Because success is only short-lived anyway. And the players also have to remember to value fans...because without the fans to pay the money to come and see them play and support them, they simply wouldn't be where they are. I think sometimes some of them forget that.

~EMiLiTA~
11-13-2004, 04:04 PM
