Malaysian Open Tennis 2015: David Ferrer Looking Fresh and Cool Outside of the Court

David Ferrer would be the more popular player right now since he's inside the top 10 and has been there these past five years.

Incidentally, he also won the title here in Malaysia, beating Feliciano Lopez last night, in an all-Spanish final.

Away from the court and the glare of the sun, he does look quite handsome, without the usual bandana he puts on his head. In court, he appears a bit short but in person, he's tall naman pala.

Pano naman kasi most male tennis players are 6 feet or taller.

Fun Pictures: Stan Wawrinka

Stan Wawrinka is one of the more unpredictable yet very talented players in the ATP Tour. When he's on, he can really challenge the greats and win a grand slam for himself!  Here are some fun shirtless pictures of him when he's not on court!

Fun Pictures: Milos Raonic

I must say Canadian player Milos Raonic really looks handsome nowadays.  Kung sa Tagalog pa, mamang mama na siya. (In Tagalog, he has really become a man!).  It's funny though that I haven't checked out any shirtless pictures of him......until now and boy does he look great!  

Not only does he play great, he also is certainly yummy!  I really hope I can fly to Kuala Lumpur in two weeks so I can see him in person!  I am very, very excited!

Fun Pictures: Borna Coric

In today's up-and-coming tennis players, Borna Coric is probably my most favorite.  He has his finely-chiseled face and he's just handsome in my book.  I hope he comes to my side of Asia so I can cover him!

Up-and-Coming Female Tennis Players: Cagla Buyukakcay and Laura Siegemund

I enjoy watching tennis especially when there are new players that kinda come out of nowhere and reach either the finals or win a title in the WTA Tour.  This week, it happened in both WTA tournaments in Istanbul and Stuttgart.

It was fitting that a Turkish player wins the Istanbul Open.  Cagla Buyukakcay becomes the first Turkish woman to win a WTA title and she does it in her home soil.  That's a great achievement.  I read that she participated in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year.  Hope she joins the HK tournament.

It was also fitting that two German players were in the final of the Stuttgart Open.  We all already know Angelique Kerber.  However, it was great to see an up-and-coming player compete for the title against this year's Australian Open champion in Laura Siegemund.  I have seen her play before in the slams so with this performance, this should boost her confidence and allow her to perform better in the next tournaments she can enter!
