Love Match

The Australian Open Tennis Tournament 2011 in Melbourne on 22 January.

And it played out like this.

Spain's Rafael Nadal, the World's No 1 Tennis player = EXTREMELY HOT



Every female in the crowd = EXTREMELY GRATEFUL
I really wasn't that close. More like this far away but
he his tennis is something else to watch.


As you can see by the first photo he was ringing wet after the first set and had to change his shirt much to the bitter disappointment of the crowd. It went a bit wild.


Asked how he felt when women whistled and took photos of him changing his shirt, Nadal flashed his trademark smile and said: "That's a very good feeling." I guess as the new face of the Georgio Armani Spring/Summer collection he is getting used to the attention.

I know he won the game ...and I can tell you exactly how many times he changed his shirt but I just cannot recall who he was playing against or what the actual score was.

Is there a particular sports person you love to watch (playing sport of course)?_______________________________________________________________

Winner of the CSN Online Voucher is Aleta - you can check her blog, Fleur de Aleta out here. I used Random.org to draw the winner. Happy shopping!

  3. I am a big fan of Nadal too. Such a cute accent and um...of course a fantastic sportsmen too. I do like Federer because he is so talented but Nadal beats him hands down in other areas of the game...

  7. @ Lisleman - he is Spanish and they do often throw their towels to people in the crowds. No dont think I would want it though. These guys must be so fit to stay out there in that blistering sun for hours and hours hitting a tennis ball. They make it look easy but it cant be.

    @ Joanie - yes I remember him. Was he the one that hit his head or am I thinking about someone else.

  9. Yes I have my favourites that would be any of those 6ft tall blonde Russian tennis players. Talk about fine sportswomen! Nadal I believe is one of the best tennis players ever.
