Men United

Posted by gauloises1 on April 27, 2010

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic had a little soccer date this week at the Stadio Olimpico to watch Roma play … someone (I don’t do football). And frankly, it’s really hard to see this as anything other than entirely adorable.

They’re so cute, with their scarves and their Blackberries and their bromance and their … hang on a minute.

Why is Viktor Troicki hiding behind the bench?!

(thanks to Noleksa’s twitter for the photos)

    wordplay. nole. raf. very nice indeed.

    I forget who Roma was playing, but I do know they lost and are no longer atop the Serie A standings — seemingly every game Rafa goes to the home team (or the team he’s rooting for) loses. For Spain’s sake, I think he should avoid at all costs going to one of their World Cups games (I, of course, am hoping that he will actually be playing tennis and going deep in tournaments, which would prevent his ability to attend anyway!):)

    Oh, and Troicki is absolutely priceless in that photo. I didn’t even realize when I first saw the photos from Noleska’s Twitter feed that it was him at first.

    I also love that Noodle has his finger over the lens of the camera there. I swear Djoko is touching his arse… that is slash I could live with.

    Troicki, do you know the meaning of ‘3 is a crowd’?

    But totally adorable pics.

    I laughed hard and loud at seeing Troicki, why is he hiding/peeking? 😀 Nole and Rafa is tres adorable.

    I love all the comments above. Esp. the Troicki ones. Truly freaky that he’s just there.

    But awww these pics are so cute! I love the second one.
    Nole just owns every picture he’s in with other players.
