Benoit Paire Back in Practice

When I first saw Benoit Paire play in a match in Morocco, I had an inkling his ranking would go up soon.  Now, I'm betting a top 10 ranking in maybe a year or two!

It's fun to see my favorite tennis players out of their tennis gear from time to time.  Here's Maria Kirilenko in a fancy fur coat roaming New York City.

Cute Picture of Sorana Cirstea

It's great to see pictures of my favorite tennis stars just chilling.  Sorana Cirstea is so cute in this one!  She said she was leaving Bucharest while doing this selfie!

This one is her picture as she returns to practice!  The Aussie Open is just a few weeks from now, after all!

Marcos Baghdatis at the 2013 Malaysian Tennis Open











It was great to see Marcos Baghdatis at the 2013 Malaysian Open Tennis tournament this week.  Yun lang, he didn't win anything.  I thought he had strong ground strokes but it was just average compared to his colleagues.Still, he looks more handsome in person!

The Handsome and Sexy Federico Delbonis of Argentina











Among all the players this year, the most sexy for me, aside from Pablo Andujar was Federico Delbonis of Argentina.  I watched his game today, a very close one against Vasek Pospisil.  Delbonis won, 7-6, 7-6.  He also changed his shirt after the first set.  Very sexy and hairy!!
