Rafa is featured in Vogue. He's really come out of his shell, no?

(Thanks, Beth)

They all come out of their shells eventually. That is what PR does for you.

he's wearing WHITE...remember a Fred Perry-ier in wimbledon..the one with a BIGWHITEBAGOFACCESSORIES?

rafa shows how it's done -- the MANLY WAY....show your sweat, armpits and mud...and THEN get in a white blazer ...just so...so the ladies know you're NOT a metrosexual...

but a hormonal GUY...

Rafa is looking at "YOU"...and asking with those eyes :

"if you only had TWO guys in WHITE....who would you want in a LONELY ISLAND with you?...me or roger?...(or :who do you think will SHED these whites to climb a coconut tree for you?)"


hehehe....

I thought the shirt underneath was a lovely pale lilac.

Lilac. Hot Pink. Electric Blue.

Mmmmmmmm. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

I just love how every post of Rafa can be finish with a no?
No? Lol
I really like that he always says those no? In spanish. And I also enjoy listening to him in English because I can perceive the trying to express your thoughts in English but the form or roots of what he's saying it's clearly spanish thinking.
By the way, I love the whole pink outfit, I love that he's not afraid to wear it or confess that he doesn't like to go to be when he's alone at home (when would that be, God only knows) and that he bakes and that he lives with his family. Oh Rafa :)

aren't some of those colors associated with supposed gay penchant for attention-grabbing colors?

if so, could the PR people be staking out rafa's appeal consciously towards gay people also?

I mean:

Roger federer can't really be sold as anything else than "the refined one"...which would be easy enough for metrosexuals who consider themselves "straight" ...

as well as to women (including those that want their men to be "refined" as in "classy").

but it could be that Rafa's PR or clothiers are seeing beyond that because he CAN'T be sold purely as a "metrosexual" or "the refined one"...and that HIS appeal to GAY men (no need to mention his appeal to women as it's obvious he can't be mistaken for a "rival to women" as roger MIGHT BE)

is BECAUSE he CAN'T be seen purely on "the refined one" terms...that is: "slightly with feminine qualities" but

ALL MALE, FERAL, and all that?.

BUT - it he is dressed up in part in those "gay" colors -- it gives a stronger attachment to him?.

There is in fact a youtube of him at home with his family.

in their dining room/kitchen...

the others were sitting on chairs or at the kitchen counter , like a sort of breakfast bar with hanging cabinets...and tall chairs...and rafa was walking around...and then he went to where there seemed to be an oven , and looked in to check it. maybe he was baking while they were talking. lol.
