This week I’ve read Rafa – the Rafael Nadal biography written by himself and British journalist John Carlin. Anyone that knows me or accompanies this blog is aware that I’m a huge Rafa fan. I’ve followed him since 2004 and cheered him on since he won Costa do Sauípe here in Brazil. Obviously I’m an easier to please reader than most. And, honestly, I can say I didn’t enjoy the book all that much. So since I am a very nice blogger, I’m going to tell you all the important bits and why you should/shouldn’t read Rafa.
I have a few tips for people that want to camp at Wimbledon. One of them: make sure your tent is big enough. And bring an extra bra, in case it rains and yours gets soaked. Also, if you’re going to take a hat, don’t forget to take a hat case – like a box so you can put your hat in. This might seem like a silly suggestion, like, who am I, Scarlett O’Hara? Kate Middleton? Olly Murs? But today, I managed to get a screencap of me on my last day at Wimbledon. And here’s what my hat looked like:

You can also see ATomic on the picture (can you???). And some girl pondering really hard about the tennis. And me, in a hat. Needless to say I didn’t bring the hat home.
I hope you have enjoyed this post.
Yes, this is a post. Colour me shocked. Let’s not get our panties in a twist though. I’ll try going back to posting here – not that anyone cares though. #unloved I haven’t been here in about a year, yet I paid the monthly fee to keep this up. What do you call that? Love? Stupidity? Laziness? YES TO ALL OF THEM.
So let’s recap what happened since I left: Novak is now a’ thing’, Rafa has confidence issues, Caro is half of a sport supercouple, Vika still gets injured frequently, Serena will always be the ‘one to beat’. And apparently Federer remains playing tennis? Jesus, old dude, retire already. No one likes you!
ALSO: I went to Wimbledon in June! I have some pictures but they’re not very good. They’re mostly of Pico Monaco‘s face and me rocking a hat that became deformed after two weeks. I also camped. For two nights. Wearing a ‘Vamos Rafa!’ t-shirt. Yes, I’m one of those people.
In non-tennis news: The Daily Dot is a very fun website for news to related to the ‘internet world’ and apparently I’m into hip hop now? I don’t even know either. It’s hard out here for a pimp.
