Hey Ferru, I'm sure you're very busy right now, being awesome and preparing yourself for the final and everything. I couldn't possibly ask you to take time out of your day to affirm my OTP, that would be too much.

No, really.

Well, okay, I mean if you insist...

1:30 -
"¿Con qué jugadores tienes mejor relación?"
"Pues me llevo muy bien con Albert Montañes, con Rafael Nadal, cuando estaba Juan Carlos Ferrero."

Listing him last so people wouldn't suspect~, I love it when you boys are subtle.


Ty David, good luck tomorrow.
First title since January 2011 :DD

Well done, Stan. But try to win a tournie with a less fugly trophy next time, there's a good boy.

(...Soz, Ferru. But you got to win the final in Buenos Aires, so fair's only fair.)

Me, ten minutes before the match: I don't really mind who wins, I <3 them both, I'm just pleased they both made the final. I'm perfectly happy whatever the result :)))

Me, ten minutes into the match: STAN, I WANT YOU TO LITERALLY KILL HIM. WIN THIS SHIT GDI.

Me, ten minutes after the match: Aww, yay, Ferru :DDDD Poor Stan, but yay David, yay :DDDD



(I'm not being (consciously) disingenuous about this. My loyalties seem to change with the tide sometimes.)

What a nice tennis week it was though - Feli made a final, Colin won a title, Sania won a title, and Karin made a semi, as did Boy and Kevin. All good. (...It's so much easier to keep up with these things when there's no Challengers...)

"Yeah, shut up."

Ferrer and Soderling are being far too cute this week.
Photobucket

Having fun playing tennis on a bus...
Photobucket

...standing close together when visiting the Prime Minister...
Photobucket

...more standing close together...
Photobucket

...alright, most of my current fanning of this may come from standing arrangements...
Photobucket
...but, seriously, happy!Ferru there in all those.

grumpy!Ferru, when he's away from him.
Photobucket
That, or Ferru's cross because Robin just said to DCam, "This year's Wimbledon was the best ever, wasn't it?"

Brought back bad memories
Photobucket

Which would explain why Ferru had to blank him for a bit later on.
Photobucket

They've done other things together though, did some holidaying.
Photobucket
"Do you want to come swimming with me?" "Only if I can bring five friends and a dolphin."

And trying on ethnic dresses in Kuala Lumpur.
Photobucket

See, like, true love.

[52] Tennis. (Mostly Wawrinka and Lopez, but also Ferrer, the Bryan Brothers, Verdasco, Nadal, Federer, Cilic. And Karlovic, Olivier Rochus, Murray, Allegro, Bohli and Luthi in pairings.)
[9] Others. (Die toten Hosen, Do Começo ao Fim, John Simm, Green Wing.)

Other things:

10 foreign football sex scandals to try and make John Terry not look as bad
Aside from Garrincha and the goat, I'm most baffled by this bit about Beckenbauer: The 18-year-old Franz was banned from the West German youth side and only reinstated when he agreed to share a room with coach Dettmar Cramer. ...Did that really help?

This is the catchiest song ever. (And the fanvid it's put to is fairly awesome too I think, though I don't know anything about "Princess Tutu"...or indeed anime generally.)

Let Tipsi's awesomeness lure you in. )

Edit: Bah. When I posted this there were no AO picspams on my f-list, and then you all sneakily posted them in the 45 minutes I spent finding pictures (...5 minutes on Daylife, 40 looking at pictures of Feli in his jockstrap). Sorry if the pics are all dups by now.
First I'm going to be angry at Roger Federer.

Because he's not going to do Davis Cup. Again.

I tire. Now, even if Marco pulls it out of the proverbial bag against Spain (again), and even if Stan doesn't cripple himself again in training for it and his imminent child times its appearance conveniently, and even if they somehow manage to out-gay Verdasco and Lopez... I mean, even if all these incredibly unlikely things happen, Roger's going to swoop in in the next round and get all the credit.

If Roger had played in 2007, Switzerland would have won that tie. And I'd have put money on the First Round in 2009 going their way too.

Cock.

And, Stan lost to Söderling today. You'd think I'd be used to the heart-attack-inducing inconsistency by now.
Photobucket
(Click for bigger.)
Ah, but at least he wasn't wearing yellow.

Also, why are the Abu Dhabi players all so grumpy?
Photobucket
It's a knock on affect from Roger's failure to play DC, I reckon. Stan's like "bastard. why can't I quit you. you always do this! you promise you'll do DC, just like when you promised you'd buy me dinner in Japan, and then you forget all about me because of your singles career. you love the grandslams more than me!" and Roger's like "soz, bro. I just don't like clay" and Robin's like "I'm going to kill the twat who made me sit in the middle of this" and Rafa's like "but Rogi, Spanish clay is sexy, no?" and Koyla's like "I wish I was in Spain, see Feli and his pretty hair...oh wait, he cut it :(" and Ferru's like "...but I still have quite pretty hair. why does no one ever notice my hair?". Or something.

Heh, that lady is taller than Ferru.

First, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lennongirl for the v-gift. I'd send one back, but you look like you'll get snowed in at this rate? They need a snowplough one.

I forgot to do my sexy men in santa hats calender. Haven't really had much time for LJ at all this weekend, been too busy being excited over the World Cup draws, and the Davis Cup, and why won't Bremen beat Köln, and I've had some stuff to do for uni too (suddenly, last week of term, they want us to start doing work that has to be handed in and everything, what's with that?).

Anyway, Spain won!! ^_^
Photobucket

4th, 5th, and 6th Dec. (and maybe also 7th and 8th if I forget them too)
Photobucket
Ginormous trophy for Feli to put his hands all over, but still he wants to put his on top of Ferru's. Subtle as ever, Feliciana.

First of all, I actually need a cheetah cub. And a Usain Bolt. But I want the giant kitten first.
Photobucket

Stan won!! He did a bit of being adorable and injured first... (I defy anyone to look at his eyes in this picture and not want to hug him.)
Photobucket
But then he did actual winning. And 15 aces isn't bad either, that's more than the number of double faults he did against Lapentti at the USO anyway.
Photobucket
The commies on the bet365 stream were literally the funniest thing I've heard in ages. They kept talking about love being in the air between Stan and the trainer, and Stan's parents' organic farm, and the roller-coaster near their hotel, and criticising Stan's shirt.

Feli also won, woohoo! I can't find pictures of that, so here have some beach pretty. (That disguise is phenomenal, you'd hardly know it was Verdasco!)
Photobucket
I jest, obviously it's not Nando. But what sort of straight man who has boobs waved in front of his eyes chooses to look to the near-distance?

Whilst I'm Armada-ing, I absolutely love this picture of Feli and Ferru. Look how protective Feli's being! Ferru's all like "hey pretty birdie!" and Feli's like "whoa, stand back..." and has his racquet poised to hit it if it gets feisty.
Photobucket

I did have other trhings to say, but I forgotted them while staring at the pics. Soz.
