Rafa defeats RRBC to win 5th RG title

I’m too emotional to write in a coherent manner, so I’ll let Rudyard Kipling do the talking, with a line from my favourite poem;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man my son

Mallorcan Rafael Nadal Parera defeated Robin Bo Carl Soderling, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4, to win his 7th Slam title today.

Sod played well, but not up to his awesome standard during the rest of the tournament. Rafa played a wonderful match, hitting plenty of astounding winners, and looking more like his 2008 self.

Robin deserves so much fucking credit for his incredible run. He, for the second consecutive year, defeated the World #1 and defending champion, this time Roger Federer. He played brilliant tennis to come through a tough 5 set semi against Berdych.

As I’ve recently admitted, mainly thanks to our Queen Vitch Jills, I am becoming a Sod fan. He plays some amazing tennis, and is genuinely hilarious and awesome off court. Robin will now reach his career high ranking of World #6. Congrats on an amazing fortnight, dude. And good luck for Wimbledon. Hugs to Robin fans.

But today was about one man……

Rafa was more emotional than we’ve ever seen him after a match. He genuinely cried his heart out after winning his 5th Roland Garros title. He spoke of how difficult the last year was for him, what with the injury to the holy knees, the tear in his abdominal muscles, and seperation of his parents, and he thanked the crowd and his ever-present team for their support. He seems to be in a much better place now than he was last year, and I for one couldn’t be more proud to call myself a Rafa fan. He teared up again as the Spanish National Anthem, La Marcha Real, was played. Beautiful moment.

Rafa will now regain his World #1 ranking from Roger Federer, and heads into Wimbledon on a 22 match winning streak, after going undefeated in the clay season. Vamos!

Felicitaciones, campeon!!!

Massive hugs and love to all our fellow Rafa fans.

Hotness of the Week: Marat Safin

Yes, ladies, it’s that time again. HotW is back, and this week our subject is Marat Safin.

Where do I start? Check out that smile!

Maratski workin a hood like only he could, his eyes are making me melt

Look. At. That. Body

Marat is a former World Number One, and he is delicious

He’s a total GQ Motherfuck€r

He retired at the end of last year, breaking the hearts of fangirls (and fanboys) worldwide

He looks shit hot even when sporting a black eye. Unf!

Part of his charm is that he just seems to not give a fuck. He’s like “I’m badass, deal with it”

*sobs* Remember this? Maratski is a two-time Grand Slam champion.

Basically, there’s no need for a summation in this case. He’s Marat Mikhailovich Safin, and he’s a sexy bastard.



Hotness of the Week Chicks Edition; Flavia Pennetta

So, anyone who reads HSM regularly, or follows me on Twitter, will know that I have a total girlcrush on Miss Flavia Pennetta, or Bella Flavia, as I like to call her.

For starters, she has amazing legs

She just embodies typical Italian beauty and grace

Her smile makes my heart all fluttery, and she’s a chick FFS!

She has had sex on a tennis court before, as she admitted in an interview.  I want. With her.

She can “smize” amazingly well. Tyra Banks and her fivehead would approve

She has great fashion sense (love those shoes), but look at that smile! I love it!

She is a BAMF. She once said she’d “have a quickie with Marat Safin.” See? She’s just like us!

Le sigh. She really is bella.

When she was having a hard time personally in 2007, she didn’t let it ruin her. Hells no, she went away, worked on her tennis, and became the first Italian Chick to crack the Top 10. Awesome!

What is there left to say? She’s Italian, beautiful, sexy, cute, has a great sense of humour, would bone Maratski, is bubbly and vivacious, and a damn good tennis player.

I would totally marry Flavs and have her Italian babies. Le sigh.  She’s the only chick I’d ever say that about.

Forza Bella Flavia!



Hotness of the Week, chicks edition #1

We here at HSM pride ourselves on being great believers in equality. A fair few of our HSM readers are dudes, so, this post is for them. Our very first HotW chick subject is Ana Ivanovic.

She is blazing hot

For someone so shy and dorky, she does “come hither” eyes pretty well

The girl rocks sexy clothes damn well

She knows how to work the camera

She looks good wet (!)

She grew up in a working class family and learned how to play tennis an an abandoned swimming pool. That is inspirational stuff, y’all

She says she’s “trilled” all the time, which is fucking adorable

Again, she rocks wetness well

She is a UNICEF ambassador, which shows that she’s beautiful both inside and out

She is a grand slam champion, and quite frankly, deserves more fucking respect than she often gets

So, Ana won a match today, and is hot and beautiful and sweet. We salute you, Baby E.  AJDE!

(This post is really dedicated to Curt and Parker, for being loyal and epic Ana fans. We love you guys)

*Insert Miami Vice Joke Here*

Thank you Miami! Nando in a Jet-Sky. Nando Shirtless. Just one thing. Can he please just shave? Jills can you find him and tell him something about this situation? Anyway….

Nando Pic Spam Alert!!!

He was so made for this.

Sigh. That smile ❤

Tom Cruise in Risky Business or Don Johnson in Miami Vice? You guys make the choice.

Just Because I Can.

I was going to add them to the post down there, but this deserve there own post. Why? Because is Gonzo. He’s looking adorable and awesome like always.

Gonzantic Pic Spam Alert!!!

Did I mentioned that I love him? Le Sigh.

Hotness Of The Week: Feliciano Lopez

Well, well. Look what we have here: another Hottie of the Week. Emma did one on Friday. Today is Monday so this is a new week. We did one of Nando, so of course the next one was going to be Feli. It’s kind of impossible to keep those two apart.   Feli Lopez: The Prettiest Man on the ATP Tour (yes I gave him that title because it is true). Let’s start, shall we?

He doesn’t mind getting oily and posing for gay magazines.

He’s part of one of the most epic bromances in ATP History.

He likes to be shirtless a lot.

He has the body of a Greek god. He’s like Adonis reincarnated, I swear.

He can go all model on you. I see a second career in the future.

Did I mention that he goes shirtless a lot?

He can also be a BAMF on court. Especially in Davis Cup. Suck on that Argentine crowd.

He also possesses one of the most amazing asses on the ATP tour, maybe even in the world. Also, he likes to play without his underwear and just wearing a jockstrap. Don’t believe me? Check out the video up there.

Feli, all the fangirls and some fanboys salute you. Keep us giving what we want. Because Deli Lopez brings the meat. (TM Neil)

Hotness of the Week: Fernando Verdasco

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time again. Time for Hotness of the Week. This week’s choice is one Fernando Verdasco Carmona. And he is one hot motherfucker.

He’s sexy when he’s being all fierce

He’s delicious when he’s being a thespian dahhling (or trying to)

He makes me give out *high pitched squeals* when he’s being fucking adorable

He is fit as fuck when flashing those abs (is it bad that I just wanna lick ice cream off his abs?)

He gets nekkid for charity, which makes the Karma Gods and my vagina mucho happy

Look at it. I know you know what I’m talking about. LOOK AT IT. I WANT!

Ai Dios mio y todo los Santos. He’s basically a hot BAMF. And he wins at life AND at tennis.

Fernando Verdasco Carmona, me and my ladywood salute you.

Things That Made Stoogle Happy

Yeah, yeah we’ve been lazy. I did post the Nando CK thing and the Gypsy vid. Well I was really busy and couldn’t post as much as I wanted to. I did keep up with the tennis news and was really happy with some of the results. There where 2 guys that made me really happy.  So I’ll give you the Adventures of Juanqui and Ferru, the forgotten Armada guys.

How about that old guy Juan Carlos Ferrro?

Being in 3 finals during the South America clay-court swing and winning 2. Yeah, the dude should totally retire.

Ferru winning Acapulco and being awesome. FYI the trophy is not a Pear it’s a Guaje. Look it up people.

Juanqui and Ferru played each other in back to back finals. Juanqui took Buenos Aires and Ferru Acapulco. The most awesome thing that I discovered? Their bromance. They totally rival Nando and Feli. I haven’t seen so much ass kissing in a trophy ceremony since, I don’t know, ever.

The Giggling.

The whispering. Sigh

The Champagne fight. *Squeeee*

Yep, they totally rival Nando and Feli. I’m sure there is a video somewhere of them singing to each other. After their adventures in the South America clay-court swing there was Davis Cup. Juanqui had to withdraw, the dude is old and played a fucking lot he needed his rest. So they replaced him with Almagro aka Judas and he was totally worthless. THE DEAD RUBBER DOESN’T COUNT ASSHOLE!! No wonder he’s on my shit list. So Ferru almost won the tie against the Swiss by himself. Yes, I will give credit to Tommy and Marcel they did win the doubles rubber. But Ferru was the hero and even Bageled Stan. My man has big cojones. A Davis Cup warrior, that’s still has a perfect record on DC matches on clay.

I flove him so much.


That’s all I have to say. The whole Calvin Klein add featuring Nando. I’m just speachless. Warning NSFW. I recomend that wait til you get home. Then get some wine, candles and enjoy.

Is Finally Here!!!

I’m not going to write a critique about the song, is like whatevs. I really don’t freaking care. All I care is about how hot Rafa looks. *fangirling* Shaki is smart and fucking lucky. Sigh.

Shakira’s new music vid, now with extra added Nadal, for our viewing pleasure

El sigho. Shakira Shakira is a lucky bitch. So, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard that Rafa is to appear in the Colombian star’s new video for her upcoming single, Gypsy. I for one love Shakira, and also think she’s a slammin hottie. But man, her crush on the Rafa is blindingly obvious. Anyways, here’s a preview of the vid.

I think that the vid looks hawt. And with those two magnificent creatures starring in it, that ain’t no big surprise!

Gah. I wonder if I lip-synch to a song and use my Dad’s camcorder if Rafa will agree to writhe along beside me half nekkid? I seriously fuckin doubt it!

Yes Nando, Your Fans Like It.

Oh, yes we do. The posting has been almost none existent this week. The vitches are having a big AO hangover. Yes, there has been tennis going on. There’s always tennis going on. So there be a post about tomorrow’s finals and well I really don’t care about Fed Cup. So I will ignore it. In the mean time: How about some Spanish Chorizo? Nando is every fangirl wet dream. I’m still catching my breath. The person who oiled his body must be one of the luckiest persons in the world. I want that job, dammit. *pouts* Enjoy.

Holy FeVer!

I think that’s all I got. Nando’s new Calvin Klein ad. I think, I need a cold shower. Can he play just wearing that?


Updated: ( For more pics check out  Down The Line )

Sorry Feli. Ferru Does It Better.

Johannesburg is this week.  Of course they had the obligatory Tennis player holding a lion cub pic. It was Feli’s turn this year.

Why do I get the feeling that Feli is not enjoying this? He totally looks like I did when I was 12 and went to Orlando. My mom wanted me to take pictures with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I wasn’t having any of it.  I think I had that same face. The face of disgust and why are you making me do this?

Yeah, yeah. I’m touching the lion cub. Can we get this over with? This place stinks and I don’t like to get dirty/Feli

Don’t get me wrong Feli looks totally hot. When doesn’t he look hot? But just compare to the Ferru pics.

You can totally see Ferru is an animal lover. He touched a grown up Cheetah, ffs. With Feli not so much. Another reason why I believe Ferru is my soulmate.
