I don't care he's still peRFect.
been a great tournament.
i was in the weird position of being totally happy for whoever wins the two singles finals and gutted for whoever loses. respect to vika that was a solid performance today, thank god women's tennis has a winner at numbers 1,2 and 3 now.
tomorrow could be another epic match, i think rafa might edge it.
thanks for spoiling us with so many pictures, they have been fantastic
Some more good 1s
David Ferrer, Arnaud Clement, Juan Monaco, Juan Martin Delpotro & Lleyton Hewitt
The men's final is underway & proving 2b a nail biter as expected...pix r coming in already
And there u have it...people it doesn't get any better than that period...i suspect an onslaught of pix as both men removed their shirts after that match ( I thought they were both gonna pass out wow)
And here they come...Our 2012 Australian Open Champion
absolutely incredible. what an effort from novak. gutted for rafa but it really was amazing. total respect for them both. hoping for more of the same as the year goes on.
on a shallow note, can't tell you what it does for me when novak does his shirt ripping thing, he is looking super fine.
It's no longer the days when Roger and Rafa were battling it out for the No. 1 ranking. It's a little sad that they seem to be fighting for the No. 2 and 3 slots.
Too bad for Rafa. I like him off court but not on though. Glad Nole won .
Was in such a quandary because like them both so much.... great men.. who are great advertisements for their sport, as is Roger Federer, it was so close but in the end felt Novak shaded it in terms of a deserving win... a joy to watch them both... thanks for your artistry and sportsmanship...
Novak's muscles look great but he has lost all body fat and it is too drastic.
He doesn't even have his lovely tiny butt anymore... let alone a bulge in the pants.
I love him winning and all but can we get a little body fat?
[QUOTE=ezwriter;7824027]I just joined this forum yesterday...great thread!

Xavier Malisse, Robbie Ginepri, Eduardo Schwank, Fernado Gonzalez & David Nalbandian
Social Media seems 2b still reeling from the incredible Aussie Open finals...& I have major grand slam withdrawals!!! trouble getting back 2 my normal routine & still waking up early as hell
nehoo here r some more pix of AO runner up Rafa Nadal that I just discovered
& a sexy gif of Rafa "adjusting" himself after the final
These fan pics of Rafa training r wonderful!!
B4 I appear 2 have become a total Rafaholic I'll change the subject & post some memories from the 2012 Australian Open - shirt changes
Jo Wilfried Tsonga, Kei Nishikori, Juan Martin Delpotro & David Ferrer
1 more post b4 I turn away from this years AO - on court action
Roger Federer, Michael Llodra, Mikhail Kukushkin, Kei Nishikori & David Ferrer
Here r some guys who have scored big points & held up trophys in some of the smaller tournaments already this year
Brian Baker won in Destin Florida (pictured with friends 1st guy on the left)
Bjorn Phau (now 32 years old) won @ Heilbronn
Wayne Odesnik (didn't he get suspended 4 doping?) won in Columbia
Go Soeda won 2012 Honolulu Challenger

bonus bulges from Pat Cash, Feliciano Lopez & Johan Brunstrom
If we're gonna have bulges then we better also share some ass!!
Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Jan Hajek, Lucas Kubot & Richard Gasquet
Less than 3 weeks 'til my trip 2012 Delray Beach ITC...as usual the player list is American heavy (The top 2 US players will b the top 2 seeds as it stands so far) & it's a toss up since Roddick & Isner r neck & neck @ #16 & 17 respectively...I'll start by featuring some pix of former Bulldog goldenboy John Isner
Next up is Andy (better not flake on me this year) Roddick
there is some serious muscle on that guy in the pics with isner!
I am very excited that Elle's new crush is coming to Delray (hope his legal troubles don't screw that up!!!)
Bernie will b seeded 5 or 6 I guess since he is neck & neck with Benneteau & there is still time 4 the rankings 2 fluctuate eg...Roddick just dropped @ #19 now so he will b 2nd seed after Isner (#17) unless some1 higher asked 4 last minute wildcard
here's a few more pix of Atomic
Victor Troiki is poised 2b the 3rd seed presently @ #22 on the new ranking list...over all there r 13 players entered all in the top 50 (not bad better I think than Winston Salem which was also a 250 stop)
American Donald Young & former American Alex Bogomolov should also b top 8 seeds
I'm totes screwing these attachments up today
Seeded between Tomin & Bogogmolov @ Delray should b Julien Benneteau who IMHO was the comeback kid of 2012...he is now #35 in the world (It was my 1st ever final 2 watch in person when he played Isner in North Carolina last year...excellent performance!!!)
B4 I go on more about my upcoming trip 2 Delray here r some winners from this past weekend 4 those interested...Juan Monaco from Argentina won @ Vina Del Mar Chile (his 1st title since 2007 I think!!! pleased 4 him!)
These players also help up winner trophies over the weekend
Tomas Berdych = Open Sud De France Montpelier
Mikhail Youzhny = Singles & doubles (partner w/ Bagdhatis) @ Zagreb Indoors Croatia
Frederico Gil = Doubles (partnered w/ Daniel Gimeno-Traver) @ Vina Del Mar Chile
Nicolas Mahut = Doubles (partnered w/ Eduard Roger-Vasselin @ Open Sud De France
Danai Udomchoke = Mcdonald's Burnie International Australia
great set of pictures tennis6, thank you
^My pleasure as always!
Next up some retro pix of James Blake who is once again appearing @ Delray Beach in just over 2 weeks!!!
Also excited 2c that 21 yr old Canadien Davis Cup star Vasek Pospisil was on the player list 4 Delray...here's some recent pix of him
I've mentioned b4 that the ITC in Delray also is a big stop on the Champions tour...1 of the regulars is 2 time Australian Open Champ Johan Kriek...though he has changed alot in the physical sense he is still a very active person in the tennis world & a huge facebook addict like myself
some b4 & afters
Pospisil is cute!
the short shorts were so much nicer than the long johns they wear these days!
