Rafael Nadal and Carlos Moya: Their beautiful Spanish “love” story in pictures
Rafael Nadal and Carlos Moya have so much in common.
Both are from the same Spanish island, both have been ranked number one in the world and both have won the French Open. Both are also smokin’ hot! So wouldn’t it be cool if they were also in love – with each other! I mean, look how tender they are with each other, how much they enjoy each other’s company, how they even like to dress alike!
Yes, I am aware that this is perhaps the silliest blog post I have ever written but once I got started, there was no way to stop!
I just kept finding adorable photos of this happy pair, sharing a laugh, getting something out of the other’s eye, playing doubles in total tandem, consoling the other after a loss.
It was all very sweet and looked like love.
Carlos is now past 30 which is ancient in tennis years but he seems determined to get past his current injuries and give the pro tour one last go. Rafael though is at the peak of his considerable powers and just won two clay-court tournaments in preparation for next month’s French Open where he will be gunning for his fifth straight title in Paris.
Win or lose, Carlos will be there I’m sure.
Some other tennis love stories:
While Carlos and Rafa have long been acquainted, the affection between Marat Safin and Novak Djokivic is more recent.
Not sure if their closeness is something that has been brewing for sometime or if after they played a match, they just felt like almost making out. While Marat has been ranked number one in the world, Novak has not managed any higher than number three. But he won the Australian Open last year – a trophy he could put alongside Marat’s from the 2005 Aussie tournament.
Marat’s Russian colleague, the delicious Igor Andreev, is not as shy as Marat when it comes to giving out a post-match smooch. He kissed a Davis Cup teammate Dmitry Tursunov right on the mouth for all the world to see. Now that’s my kinda guy! (Igor is the guy with the long blonde hair in that photo)
While that pic is the most provocative of all of these photos I’ve dug up, it really was just a quick peck after Dmitry had upset American Andy Roddick to clinch a Davis Cup tie over the USA. But I maintain that it is still possible the pair celebrated later – in private! I’m just sayin …
And finally, we have Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka who were so overjoyed when they won the gold medal in doubles at the 2008 Summer Olympics they did not wait until they got to the locker room to begin their celebration. I almost think they had sex right there on the court and it was a beautiful thing. BTW, I’m sure they were far less affectionate a few weeks ago when Stanislas beat Roger in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters tournament but maybe they have kissed and made up.
Okay, that’s it for my creative writing for the day. Sure was fun!
