Spaniards Face 'Sex Point'

Spanish Armada Feature in Marie Claire

Members of the Spanish Armada appear in September's edition of Marie Claire in a seven-page feature.

Tommy Robredo, David Ferrer, Carlos Moya, Fernando Verdasco and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez reveal their professional ambitions and life outside of the court in the feature titled: ‘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."

They actually do have a feature article on Rafa, but no interview obviously. And the picture they printed of him looks like it was taken in 1961, poor guy.

ferrer is way too short sorry and verdasco have this weird droopy face from front view. I can atleast understand why moya and tommy being called sexy. I don't think Nadal is the sort of person that likes doing these glamourous photoshoots so leave him alone.

You can say that again! My first thought was 'where the hell is JC in this shoot?' But the spaniards are so so hot. I love the Moya, Robredo and Ferrer photos especially. :D

i know.. it's just hype around them and now everyone thinks they're soooo hot. a few years ago before ppl knew about guys like nadal, robredo, ferrer etc they wouldn't have given them a second look. now they're all in the spotlight and doing well so ppl think they're hot :rolleyes:

As the photoshoot was taking place in Båstad in the beginning of July, they took only take pics of the players who were there!
That is the reason why Lopez, Ferrero and Nadal are not in the pictures!

I never really got why the spaniards are considered attractive,Robredo is decent looking(sometimes even hot)but all the rest are average at best.They all seem like nice guys but I don`t see the sex-appeal.

Of course they have make up...have you ever heard of a photoshoot in which the model(s) don't get made up to some degree?

I'm always surprised when people don't see it. It's enough to make me consider moving to Spain. :lol:

I hear the weather is nice and the country is beautiful

It's a shame that baggy is the only greek/cypriot doing well.
Been to Greece and the men were incredible looking!
Poor baggy is not a true representative of greek men!

*nods* Last year Ferrer was looking skinny to me but seems to have packed on some muscle since then. :D

Why didn't they pick LaLo for this article? He's probably on suicide watch now. :lol:

:haha: In all seriousness he's cut his hair shorter than it's been in ages so perhaps he's past the diva stage now. :p

Carlos :drool:

I agree totally. Every time I see him the more :hearts: he is.

I think the picture of Verdasco is horrible. :o He's so much better looking in person.
