Monte Carlo: Off-Piste
Posted by gauloises1 on April 13, 2010
Monte Carlo always generates cool picturage … and you know how I like my pictures.
In the ever-growing list of random yet oddly inspired publicity stunts the ATP comes up with, sending Nole and Jo to visit the Oceanographic Museum in Monte Carlo has to be right up there.
Nole, Jo, and the remains of charismatic megafauna. These are a few of my favourite things.
I love Jo’s demeanour in these photos. He’s acting like you do when you aren’t really interested at all in what you’re being shown – or are too interested in the person who’s showing you – so you concentrate hard on everything with painful politeness.
Nole, meanwhile, is the Instant Expert. I love it.
So, remember that case file I mentioned?
Meanwhile, Rafa talked to the press …
… Marin popped up to be very serious about something …
… and Nole turned up to, well, not be:
I love how Monte Carlo is like Noleville. Except for the bit where he actually wins the tournament.
