    are you kidding? Regis is retarded and should retire. He was making Nadal awkward by asking him stupid questions. No surprises there because he has been stinking up interviews the past two years with Del Potro and Federer. In 2007, he asked Federer who he beat in the final? (hello? research) and said that he had "amazing eyes". :lol:

    Oh come on now, it always kinda sux when a really hot guy has a gf! I'm not a big Xisca fan either, it won't change a damn thing, except perhaps for some personal satisfaction! lol.

    I like her because she seems unaffected by her boyfriend's fame and she also seems very supportive. It takes a special person to date a guy who is young, good looking and away from you for a good portion of the year. Since they first started dating Rafa has gotten huge, as his gf she has to care about her appearance! I'm not talking a ton of makeup or perfect clothes all the time. But, for one of Rafa's matches she looks like she just got out of bed and showed up. She also wore the same shirt twice during the tourney. I probably sound really vain or superficial right now, but I'm not. It's kind of like why I think Mirka should lose weight. I'm not talking skinny skinny, but with all that money, a personal trainer won't hurt. She too is the wife of one of the biggest tennis players in the history of the sport, like it or not, these women are in the spotlight.

    How do you think he serves flatter? Slight change of grip, so he doesn't put topspin on the ball.

    Maybe Rafa doesn't care about what she wears. Fashion is something females care about a lot more than males (apart from the Federeresque males).

    I think it's great that Mirka doesn't feel the necessity of losing weight to please the standard of 'beauty'...hum... I mean the almost anorexic standard of beauty we have now. GO MIRKA.
    And it's very refreshing to see a girl with no make up and who likes to wear clothes more than once (shocking indeed). GO XISCA.
    I'm sure you're not that superficial, btw.
    They may be not subversive women, but I like their 'f... the the standard' attitude.

    Makeup looks crap on people anyway, its odd how girls think makeup is good.

    I do too. I hate that society tries to dictate what women should be, how much they should weigh, what they should wear, etc.

    I've seen so many women's lives ruined because they feel they don't fit certain standards. I feel for them, but at the same time it's their fault for trying to be what others dictate.

    Most men like confidence, and nothing says confidence than being yourself.

    I was replying to-
    I was saying that maybe Rafa doesn't care how Xisca dresses. Cos I'm a male and I couldn't care less how girlfriend dresses. Fashion isn't an issue at least from my point of view.

    Yea but meg0529 comment that Xisca always looks like she just got awake/got out of bed, has as much to do with Xesca's own natural looks/expression/demeanor as her choice of outfits, me thinks.

    Lol Meg she does look like she just got out of bed and does seem to wear a lot of the same clothes many times that's true. I don't know if that is because she can't be bothered to travel with a lot of clothes, whether that's just how she is or whether she refuses to use some of Rafa's money for shopping.

    really? It seems pretty easy you get to do what you want and enjoy the benefits when he's home, riding his boat, etc... But anyway apparently she finally accepted to go out with him after he won his first RG hmmm.
    Anyway her looks are not the reason I can't warm to her (even though looking at pics from Rafa's usual hangout he is missing out on some serious STUNNERS). I admire men that can love a simple woman but I can't seem to warm to her because she seems stuck up! For someone that must have life so good (beautiful country, great friends, good family, great boyfriend, gets to travel for free, eat at good restaurants for free, friendly with his family, successful in school) she always looks so bloody miserable and hungry!! (there was reports she ate a dry salad while people around her ate juicy steaks). It makes me angry! My life is a bloody nightmare most of the times but it hardly reflects that! WTF has she got to be miserable about! She hardly ever cracks a smile, when she does happen to cheer she looks so bloody stiff. I also hate the fact that before they felt the need that she had to be protected..who the **** does she think she is :rolleyes: Anyway I could rant about her all day :mrgreen: Like I said before, Rafa loves his country, Xisca IS Mallorca to him so he will probably marry her. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of those situation where they're married but he cheats on her on the side and she accepts it.

    The bed look is the most attractive look though in my opinion.

    Like I said, I think she dresses well actually. I quite like her fashion sense. But you have to appear at the USO as the GF of the #1 player in the world, just 7 times. In those 7 time why would you wear the same top twice! Jeans are fine, but tops?! I think Nadal pays attention to the way he dresses too btw. It's pretty easy for them back at Mllorca, though since they only need bathing suits! haha.

    I get what you are saying and you are right. But I'm not talking about being a glam doll or being anorexic ya know? I mean I don't expect that you have a wardrobe so vast that you don't need to change for a whole month. But it's just 7 appearances, at one of the most important events in your boyfriend's career. You know who you are representing. I think she really is very pretty, lovely skin, lovely hair. But how about just some chapstick? As for Mirka, I think she's pretty too! No need for her to lose a ton of weight, but some tummy toning won't hurt her. Then again maybe Rog likes em big =D

    haha,I thought the same thing! I go to school close by, I was actually supposed to go to TS to buy something, but I got lazy last min! Oh well. It would have killed my hold day trying to a fight a crowd to get a pic of his behind...not that that's bad ;)

    I doubt it's that she refuses to use his money for shopping, I think she just doesn't care what the world thinks. lol.

    How can you know about the RG thing? The media is full of garbage, ya know? Ditto with the salad story!

    It might have been Rafa that wanted to protect her from the media, although I think that's going out the window =D

    I have to agree, she does look grumpy most of the time, maybe cuz she hates being photographed? Smiling more often will do her some good. I liked her at the open this year, she was really into it, cheering for him and everything!

    For the last part, I would hope she is a girl that would stand up for herself if Rafa cheated on her, but I think she just enjoys that no matter happens at the end of the day when he comes home to Mallorca, he comes home to her.

    Xisca obviously doesn't see herself as some kind of celebrity. She's simply being herself -- good on her!

    They seem happy together -- and Rafa has had a lot of success since he's been dating her, so Xisca is obviously good for him. Long may their relationship continue!

    As for Mirka, maybe Fed likes the way she is. Lots of men prefer their women with some meat on their bones... :)

    Meeeeeooooow! :mrgreen:

    I think you're being unnecessarily mean to her. Can't say I've noticed ever seeing her looking scruffy or miserable during Rafa's matches. She doesn't come across as vain or stuck up to me.

    Xisca's obviously a good catch, otherwise Rafa wouldn't have pursued her. Good on him for not choosing a plastic bimbo "trophy" girlfriend/wife that many of the other players seem to go for.

    If babette is already "unnecessarily mean" to Xisca now, how would you characterize her if she gets herself an avatar of Xisca with a photoshop-enhanced "wake me up" bug eyes?

    What would you think of babette then, selesian?

    Like Jerriy said should I have an altered xisca pic as my avatar to be deemed less mean?

    "plastic bimbo "trophy" girlfriend/wife" you know plastic bimbos have feelings too. Don't they deserve love?:(


    here she is again looking ecstatic and full of food

    LOLLLLLLl Babs!

    I liked that green shirt on her, she broke out of her whites for a change!

    Hilarious comment on the second picture. Why upgrade when you have you Mallorcan cake and enjoy other desserts on the side? =D. I think their break up would be a complicated affair. she's well integrated into his family, they seem to share a lotta friends. Talk about awkward!

    yeah I believe one of the reason why it would be hard for Rafa to change this situation or why he would be reluctant to is because she's part of the family now. His grandmother supposedly loves her. And her parents are teenage friends with Rafa's?...gee talk about perfect love story!!! why would rafa want to change anything:confused: and yet she continues to walk around with a face like thunder! Let's exchange lives for a day Xisca. You'll truly appreciate everything you have and smile more

    According to the ATP site, Rafa is guaranteed year end #1. It will be his second year end at #1 and his 6th consecutive year end in top 2.

    I've just seen on Skysports News, Nadal getting mobbed by adoring fans when he arrived back at Palma airport. Truly the people's champion.

    Thank you for this quote, Babbette. I don't have time to spend on this forum right now (it enables me to avoid reading all the ******** of some threads some threads, I guess, this is not so bad :)), but Nalby's words really make me laugh. That's how I see Rafa indeed.
