Whirlwind weeks with Ruffie!
Okay, okay..(pant,pant)..it's been weeks since you've heard from me! So sorry, sorry, sorry! Time's gone by in a blur! I've been so busy going from one event to the next - all culminating in Today's celebration of the opening of the Tennis Master Series event in Madrid and its accompanying spectacular ceremony for Rafa's amazing, supercalifragilistic 2008 season as Numero Uno tennis player in the world!! (swoon) ATP president, Etienne De Villers will present Rafa with the "trophy that will forever remind him of his spectacular achievement as the new best tennis player in the world!" The Mutua Masters Series Madrid starts tomorrow and will finish at the finals next Sunday the 19th - so don't forget to send all your air-love and support to Rafa during the week! Pleeeeeese! I've been on holiday; Rafa said just the other day that, "I'm feeling great physically, that week of holidays I just had helped me out a lot as well and I trust I will be ready for my debut. I will give 100% as I usually do at every tournament." If you've forgotten, last year's tournament was a stunning upset! Roger Federer was #1 seed with Rafa as #2 but my Rafa lost to David Nalbandian in the quarterfinals, which stunned all. This year, Rafa is ready to win! And remember, Rafa is "in" for the year-end championship in Shanghai! Who knows, my fellow chichis, we might see a Rafa/Federer finish at Shanghai! Yesterday, Rafa took time from training to attend clothing line, Hugo Boss, event where Rafa was handed a check for 20.8114 euros for his humanitarian efforts through his Rafa Nadal Foundation which was unveiled this past February! (My Ruffie has a big heart!) Rafa Nadal Foundation helps kids with disabilities and kids in third world countries - which is great! (We could be one, too, before too long!) It's taking a while for some projects to get off the ground due to Rafa's busy schedule, but hey, he's committed to its success so it's gonna happen big..:) Earlier, Rafa was victorious over American Andy Roddick which propels Spain into the Davis Cup final. He played an almost perfect game! Even Rafa was shocked by some of the winners he played (but I'm not..:) I'm so proud of my Rafa for this big win for his country! Next stop for the Spaniards will be against Argentina, who will host the final for the David Cup Title from Nov. 21-23rd. Now Rafa has a chance to lead his country to a 3rd Davis Cup crown and the first since 2004. See? Now you see why my Rafa wears the Top Tennis crown, si? I luv my Rafa. You know you do, too. Just say it! Go ahead - don't be shy. Say it!?! [echoing from the backdrop] Si! Si! We luuuuuuv you, Raaaaaaaaaaaafaaaaaaaa! VAMOS!!!! Before I go, here's a pic of me at the beach with Rafa. Eat your heart out: Ahhhhhhhh, life c'est si bon!
