The Forehand Times XVI

September 24, 2013 § 1 Comment

So its been a while since I posted one of the Forehand Times posts and it has been a whirlwind week and a half for Rafa and he hasn’t got any actual rest. πŸ˜€
Good news for the 2014 calendar is that they have added a brand new clay tournament in South America in Rio, which means that they had to had to get the king of Clay to sign up, ( which he did) and which also means that Rafa will not play Acapulco, which is more or less at the same time. Before the Rio Open announcement, I thought that Rafa would indeed play Acapulco,which will become a hard court tournament from next year, as preparation for Indian Wells. Here is Rafa holding a gigantic ball to announce his commitment πŸ˜€

Next, we were treated to a sultry behind the scenes video of a Vanity Fair spread that Rafa did while he was in New York. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Vanity Fair Spain, Rafa was shot at the St. Regis, where he was staying during the tournament. He looks super dapper in a cummerbund Β and bow tie #thud

Rafa had a hit with Marc and his little friends πŸ˜€


Played some Golf: πŸ˜€

And the trophy stayed home:

This man does not know how to rest πŸ˜‰

Then he had dinner with his family and his adorbs friends put up a banner and celebrated his immense comeback with him #Aww πŸ˜€

And here is the honorary adoption of Rafa by Madrid πŸ™‚–Hijo-Adoptivo-de-Madrid?vgnextfmt=default&vgnextoid=7fc75828e6b31410VgnVCM2000000c205a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=6091317d3d2a7010VgnVCM100000dc0ca8c0RCRD

Phew! and lastly, Mubadala have confirmed Rafa’s participation for an Exho in December

From King of Clay, to King of Hard Courts to King of Exhos, Rafa’s doing everything right! #VamosRafa

That wraps up a jam packed week and all that is missing is, Rafa in trunks πŸ˜‰ #expectations πŸ˜€
