Nando downs Nole, Rafa blasts past Ferru

So, that was some performance by Fernando Verdasco Carmona!

This awesome HSM fave made his first ever Masters Series final by defeating

this awesome HSM fave. Poor Nole had a bad match, he just never really hit his stride. But that does not take away from the fact that Nando played some beautiful tennis, and really hit some amazing shots. So, Fernando Verdasco def. Novak Djokovic 6-2, 6-2. He’ll now face…

Rafa, who breezed passed fellow Armada hottie Ferru, 6-2, 6-3. Rafa was impressive, but not quite at the awesome level he reached in the QFs. Still, it’s so nice to see him back on the clay and kicking ass.

This was overall a good week for Ferru. He played some solid tennis, but just couldn’t deal with Rafa’s maaaad clay court skillz.

So. Rafa vs Nando tomorrow ladies and gentlemen. Buckle up, it’s gonna be some fucking ride.

Vamos chicos!

Don’t. Make. Me. Like. Him!!!!! *Pouts*

So one the awesome things about Miami is all the media stuff the players do.  There’s the players party and bunch of other stuff. Like Ana and Rafa golfing, Muzz and Vee playing tennis in some street on top of some SUV. One of the staples of the Miami promos? The players swimming with dolphins, like they do it every year. So this year,these dudes participated.

As you guys can see some of my faves, participated: Ferru, Gonzo and Thomaz. There was also Sod, Marcelo Melo, Eduardo Schwank and Dick Norman ( I had to look for his profile, no idea who is this dude. He’s actually a tennis player but hasn’t played any matches. Wut?) I looked for this Norman guy because of this pic alone.

So cute!!! He’s kissing the dolphin!!!

Ferru swimming with a Dolphin. All I can say is Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

You guys know that I really don’t like Sod. I have this irrational dislike for him. I think most Rafa KADs do. I have been softening  up to  him the past few weeks. I’ve been blaming a bunch of things. First his tweets( hello! tiny helicopter), then Jills who likes him. My Alexander Skarsgard love (for those who follow me on Twitter know how much I love True Blood and this BAMF Swede) so I’ve been saying than I’ve been reflecting my love for ASkars  into Sod just because they’re both Swedish. Stupid I know.  Why do I mention all of this? Because of shit like this keeps happening.

The fucker is posing with a dolphin and it’s totally melting my vitch heart.

Yes, the title of the post is all about him. Can he stop? Please. Sigh.

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.

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.

 

Australian Open: Day 4

Another day done and dusted. There were a couple of “upsets”. Well they’re not really upsets, but I’m upset about it. So, I’m going to get the bad things out of the way first.

FFS, Ferru. What I’m going to do with you? You where up 2 sets to none. Then you go all headcasey and lose in 5 to Baggy. I’m so pissed. I just want to slap some sense into the man. Yeah, yeah Baggy played great and his fans were annoying as hell. Whatevs.

Another of my faves that I want to slap some sense to, Ana. I’m really getting tired of this crap. The girl needs to get real and get a sport psychologist.  Her press conference was a total gem. The press conferences are not therapy sections, Ana.  I get that she’s still trying to be positive is not like she has to be all Dina like. I just think Ana is not being real with herself.  Until she does things won’t get better. Moving on.

Djokohones in full force.

Nole had a bit of a scare losing the first set to that other Swiss dude not named Fed or Stan. He played like crap that first set with tons of errors. By the 2nd he got his shit together and won rather easy. Good Boy.

Someone that also got his shit together, Nando. He cruised against Sergeyev. Thank Sven, he will probably have to play Kolya at some point and well the dude is looking really scary.

Pico won in 5 sets against Frenchie Llodra. I didn’t see the match since it seems all the matches I do want to see are put at the same time. I did want to show that they gave Pico a new ADIDAS kit. It’s not as bad as Nando because of the lack of a collar but the shorts are fug as hell.

Jo looks so adorable in this pic. That’s why I posted it. I’m not going to lie. He won rather easy against Dent. WTG Jo. Moving on to some WTA.

She looks so cute. Caro cruised in  to the 3rd round. She beat Goerges in straights. YAY, Sunshine!!

Now onto Caro’s BFF, bitch and eternal badass, Vika. She was amazing and handed out some baked products. She won in straights and bageled some Swiss chick in the 2nd set.

Heineken Open: The Day The Hotness Died

Today at the Heineken Open there was a hotness massacre. I’m really close to not caring about this tournament anymore. Let’s start.

The first victim was Juanqui. I think this was the worse of all. He didn’t even get to play a whole set.  At 3-1, he fell and sprained his right ankle and was forced to retire. Now he seems questionable for the AO. FU, Tennis Gods. There are no pics of this match, so I posted a pic of him with puppies, because it’s cute and it makes me happy. Let’s continue.

Another victim of the massacre, Ferru. Sigh. He lost  75 64 to frenchie Clement.  Again, there are no pics of this match. So I posted an old one. I imagine that Ferru totally looked like this during the match. Next.

Pico lost to Tree in 3 sets, 57 64 63. I’m amazed that none were TB sets. I like Tree but I wanted Pico to win. Whatevs. Again, there were no pics of this match, so I posted a pic of Pico and his eternally hard nipples.

There was also Thomaz. He lost to Kohls,  64 61. At least he won a match on hard-courts and he’s still in doubles.  There were also no pics of this match. So I posted a pic of  Thomaz celebrating  his first ATP title. Good times.

The only one that survived the hotness massacre was Tommy. He beat Greul in 2 TB sets, 76(1) 76(2). Also, this was the only match that had pictures. Well, out of the matches that I care for. There were a grand total of 2 pics and they where horrible. This was the best of the two.  All of the good photographers seem to be in Australia. Pffffff.

Johannesburg To Bring On The Pretty

Both Ferru and Jezza have confirmed their participation for the upcoming SA Tennis Open in Johannesburg, South Africa. Jezza had a really good run there last year, losing to Jo in a final that still makes Jills cry because of the awesomeness of it.  I just hope for more pics of Ferru with cute animals. I still sigh every time I see the pics of Ferru and the lion cubs.

Just for you Jills. I miss the long hair.
