Tennis, Tennis, Tennis!

So this year I dont think I have written much about tennis at all. You know how much I love that sport. So anyway, first of all, I was super disappointed with Rafa for doing this video. Not because I am in love with him like my friends thought but more because I was just sad that Rafa, a legend in making did a video with Shakira. Whatever. Anyways...moving ahead.

Last night, I was hoping that Rafa and Feliciano Lopez will have a fun game like Ferrer and Verdasco's fighting five setter but it ended rather easily for Rafa. BTW, Verdasco, HOT or what!! Seriously! Something with all the Spanish players! All of them are super Cute!!!

So hopefully this year, Rafa will at least see inside the finals. But who knows, this is one slam which has evaded him. But with serves ranging over 130mph we will never know until the weekend!!! And I cannot wait. Yesterday I prayed to GOD, I should loose 5 lbs and Rafa should win US Open. Both are feats that have never been achieved...

Off late, G has been complaining that I am not watching as much tennis as I used to before. I get very excited before the game and just as the game starts I fall asleep. I was super mad and had to remind him that in US Open most of the good matches start after 9.00pm. By 10.00pm my battery is completely down nowadays. Pre-Babs days I tried to see all the matches but now if I see a Rafa and a Roger game I am happy and thank my stars.

And did anof you notice the RAFA tennis shoes? Are they not super cool? Of course you cannot wear it with jeans!!! But they are awesomest, especially since they say RAFA at the back. Me wants!

 
With that image to lust on I bid adieu saying VAMOS!!!

ART

PS: Remember those white canvas shoes that we used to wear in India with white uniform? It said Tennis Tennis Tennis at the back? I miss those shoes, growing up they were my epitome for sports shoes other than brown NorthStars (Hand me down from my brothers). Now let us compare the first shoe image below with the one above! We have come very far!

hehe..we weren't done with the video haan? (just teasing you ;) )

i don't think i ever see any sport with full gusto..not even cricket, which is really my first love.

love those shoes, but u're right nothing beats PT shoes (that's what we called them). but at the time, we would crave to wear reeboks and nikes. lol.

Rafa was totally cool in that video with Shakira. Not sure about you loosing 5lbs but Rafa will win this US Open. With his serve improving and no knee problems this is the best time.

No Megha! Not done yet! :) hhehe...
25 years from now I don't want Rafa to be remembered for that video...

I love cricket too...loved...not any more...I am afraid to get cheated on again...

Ya, I agree...we called them PT shoes too...and that they could be washed, dried, and painted on to look new! How fun!

Shashank...r u the same Shashank I know?

Ya ya...whateva...

And thanks about the Vote of Confi on my ability to loose wt!

I agree he is fit and his serve is rocking...and hopefully Verdasco will not play very well because he must be tired after the five setter.


@ Maria...Really? They have gotten a rebirth? I loved those shoes...simple but fun!
