Entries in Fernando Verdasco (44)


Roland Garros Recap: Day 5

Image Source: problem with Sunday starts is that by the time Thursday rolls around the schedule is looking a little bit thin. But that's Ok, because Roger Federer wore this hair to training to keep us entertained. We're taking bets as to which one of his kids styled it.

Fernando Verdasco Strips for Details Magazine

Fernando Verdasco, who apparently has the nickname "Muscles from Madrid," went topless in the March issue of Details Magazine to show off his amazing physique and talk about how he keeps fit.   His biggest take-home message is to eat healthy (duh),

I consume a lot of carbs and protein: salad with fish, or pasta or rice with chicken or steak. In Spain, we eat a lot of beans and legumes, too. I don't pay attention to calories, though. I eat what I feel like—but only the healthy stuff.

He also says he doesn't drink,

I don't get distracted when I visit Vegas. I've tried beer and wine, but I've never enjoyed it, so I don't drink. When I party, I just have Coke, orange juice, or water. I'm kind of weird.

But he does occasionally like to indulge and eat a couple of In-N-Out and burgers, when in the states.  

To read the whole interview, click here.  Now, excuse me while I continue to giggle at the nickname "Muscles from Madrid."   That is soooo Fer.

Laura Robson and Genie Bouchard rock it out Gangnam Style

It must be nice being a professional tennis player...... You're always in shape, you travel the world, you (hopefully) win lots of money, and in your down-time you make HIGHlarious videos like this!  Laura Robson and Genie Bouchard decided to make a video of their "Gangnam Style" and it's hysterical.  Be on the look out for Samantha Stosur to unexpectantly bust out dancing from an elevator (personally it's my favorite part), and for some cute cameos by Fernando Verdasco and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.  Enjoy!


Video: Served by the Best Featuring Ana Ivanovic, Fernando Verdasco, Jack Sock, and Gilles Simon

And now it all makes sense!  We were at the Adidas Sports Performance Store Wednesday showing you behind-the-scenes footage of an Adidas promotional event and now we get to see the final project!!  Six kiddos got the be "Served by the Best" at the Adidas Performance Store, but even before that, they were treated to a tennis lesson by Adidas coach Mats Merkel and tennis player Jack Sock.  Check out the video above (where you can see a funny shot of me at the 1:28 mark standing on a step stool to get video and twitpics! LOL).   Enjoy!


Ana Ivanovic and Fernando Verdasco greet fans in SoHo

I got a chance to watch Adidas film a promo spot with Ana Ivanovic, Fernando Verdasco, Gilles Simon, and Jack Sock at the Adidas Performance Store in SoHo. Everything you see here is just a little behind-the-scenes action, but the edited promo for Adidas will be out on Friday and you will be able to find it here!  

Let's get this party started!

Tsonga, Murray, and Verdasco take the Adidas "Keepy-Uppy Challenge"

I have to admit, I had NO idea what a "keepy-uppy" was until I watched this video.   According to Wikipedia (the MOST reliable source) a keepy-uppy is:

Keepie uppie, or "kick-ups" is the skill of juggling with a football using feet, lower legs, knees, chest, shoulders, and head, without allowing the ball to hit the ground.   It is similar to Kemari, a game formerly practised in the Japanese imperial court.

In this video, Fernando Verdasco, Andy Murray, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga compete to see who can do the most keepy-uppies.   Jo does ok, Fernando blames the slippery floor for his lack of keepy-uppy skills (no, they aren't in Madrid), and'll just have to press PLAY!

Fun interview with Fernando Verdasco

If you could switch places with anyone and live their life for one day, who would it be?

It’s tough to say.  Michael Jordan.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?


If you could sit down and have a conversation with 3 people, alive or dead, who would they be?

One is Jordan for sure.  I would say Andre Agassi but now I have conversations with him so it’s not anymore because I speak with him.  But, if I didn’t have the friendship with him that I have then he would be another one.  There are many people I would like to know, um, a great actor for example.
