This man.

I could not be more proud. To fight back after looking so completely destroyed at the end of that 3rd set took every ounce of passion and determination he had in him, and in the end it was so very very close, an odd miss here and there (that stupid missed passing shot at 4-2 30-15), one or two points that could've completely changed the outcome. But he gave it everything he had when it would've been so easy to just say "well done this is yours take your trophy", especially after the past 6 matches these two have played. He looked like he had no answers but he dug deep and found something new and he made a goddam epic match of it when it could so easily have been a complete walkover. So proud.

Next time love. This match was so much closer than any last year, you so very nearly had him. Next time those odd points might just swing your way. Next time you KNOW you've got the game to take it to him. Next time you will win.

Go rest up. Have a break, get away from everything, forget about it all. Come back all guns blazing.

Since some people weren't able to see the magical trophy ceremony of win today, I thought I'd be helpful like a helpful person and stop tagging my 258913074 DC pics and go searching for vids instead (also because I want to watch it for like the whole of the off-season it will be my happy place)

Cut for bouncing Spaniards )

ok... that was rambly... and flaily... and basically exactly what I was like the first time I watched it XD Honestly, I was bouncing off the walls, and it was just as much fun watching it through again. I love those boys more every day.

Pure GLEE under the cut )

God... I was literally close to tears when I saw those. It's been a long time coming, and I hope it's not too soon, but at the same time.... god, it's just so fucking fantastic to see.

"with all due respect, we all saw how they got to the second round - they played Sweden, and Sweden had nobody"

.....delicately put there hun >.<

Ok, so it's true, but y'know, not the point. The best thing about that bit tho was Misha sat next to him looking over to the rest of the team like "...lol, did he really just say that?"

And since no Marat post is complete without pictures DC practice/presser pics )

FIRST FEDAL CLAY FINAL OF THE YEAR!

Roger (just about with the narrowest of margins) manages to stop the Masters final drought before it reaches 12 months. Just about.

Didn't bother watching Roger's match, it's was always gonna be a let down after Rafa-Nole.

Oh god, I'm gonna be a wreck tomorrow. I'm already a wreck. God, much as Madrid has been full of fail, I kinda love it.

Cutest Rafa pics EVER )

And some dorable Raul with Raul-bbs )

Anyone surprised? :P

Practicing/warming up )

And now something to go with this from last Friday's presser:

Q. I'm surprised to see you eating cookies. Are they chocolate chip cookies?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah.

Q. I was wondering if you have things like that quite a bit? I always think athletes have a very regimented diet and don't indulge.
RAFAEL NADAL: Not me. (Laughter.)
My opinion, you can eat everything. Well, before the match maybe don't have five cookies or one stick, but my opinion, you can eat everything in the right time and with well, if I eat right now, twenty cookies, maybe I gonna have indigestion tonight.
If I eat two, three cookies, maybe it's okay. Maybe not for the stomach, no, but for the head it's better. (Laughter.) In the end, the important thing is be mentally okay.

Q. Better mental preparation?
RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah.

OMNOMNOM COOKIES )

...have I mentioned recently I love this guy?

It was the most fun match I've ever watched as a Rafa fan, there was never any doubt that he was gonna win. So here is a picspam of glee (as usual, many many many pics):

(Almost) All is well in Indian Wells.

Rafa completely owned the world yesterday, even tho his first serve was completely absent. But y'know, you can have a 48% first serve if you're gonna win 88% of your second serves XD

Andy's through \o/ Marat's through \o/ Stan's through \o/ Ferru's through \o/

(In the only WTA match of interest yesterday) DINA'S THROUGH \o/ C'mon Dina, make the final, get the #1 spot, you SO deserve it.

RICHARD AND STAN BEAT NESTOR AND ZIMONJIC! *does happy happy dance* Honestly, that is the bestest news from yesterday and makes me veryveryveryvery glee!face ^_^

Rogi and Yves got owned by the Bryan brothers tho /o\ ah well, entirely expected. So now they've had complete revenge for the Olympics, just spread out over a week ^_^

Nothing much happened in the singles yet other than Feli failing in the first round.

Doubles, ALL IS GOOD. Rafa and Marc got through with their team of dorableness. Andy and Mardy got through with the team of BFF. Mandy and Ross got through with their team of Britishness.

Heh, it's kinda hilarious how much more interested I am in the doubles at the moment. I am praying and hoping for Rogi to get through his first doubles, but... I'm not gonna hold my breath >.<

Anyways...
