sightings in the stands: nadal vs. berdych



The girlfriends were out in force today, with Xisca Perello and Lucie Safarova cheering on Rafa Nadal and Tomas Berdych at the 2010 Wimbledon Men’s Singles final.

Safarova lost in the first round of this year’s singles draw, upset by Dominika Cibulkova. In doubles, she and Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak lost in the second round to the fifth-seeded team of Huber/Mattek-Sands.

you know you’ve made it….



…when you end up on TMZ.

Roger Federer never got coverage like this! (Someone over there has the hots for the Spaniard. Harvey Levin, perhaps?)

Hmm… will Rafa Nadal boost the sport’s profile in a way that Roger never could?

On Saturday, Rafa Nadal lost to buddy and countryman Carlos Moya at The Fortis Tennis Classic held at the Hurlingham Club in West London. Here are some photos:

Nadal’s girlfriend, Francesca “Xisca” Perello, watched him play.
