Subtle vs. IN YOUR FACE? Mild vs. Hot? Cotton candy vs. Rock candy? Pepto vs. Cosmo? (yes, yes, I know Cosmos aren't really hot pink, but it sounded good, right?) These are the reasons, my friends, that Rafa wins my favor everytime. The difference in their pink is just a reminder of how different these two men are. For the record, I love Federer too, but Nadal's passion and pink are exciting, and make me want to scream:
Nike calls Rafa's color "Solar Red" and Federer's color "Perfect Pink"
I should probably mention that Rafa def. Wawrinka in his 2nd round match at the Roger's Cup. The first set was AMAZING, going to a tie break that Rafa won 14-12. I was almost, (almost), cheering for Stan during the tiebreak because he has never taken a set off Rafa, but it wasn't meant to be. Wawrinka used all of his energy in the tie break and went down easily in the 2nd 6-2.
Order of play in Center Court today: Soderling, Federer, Murray, and Nadal respectively starting at 11am.
