Fernando Verdasco sat down with us at Legg Mason to take the OnTheGoTennis Quick Q&A. He was very thoughtful and took all of the questions very seriously, especially the superhero one. And yes- he talks about the hair.

I'm not sure what Rafa is doing at the 12 second mark, but it looks a bit naughty. Even Fernando's eyes get fairly large (at the 24 second mark) after Rafa's........ummm "gestures." In truth I think he is only dancing to the music, but it's really quite funny to watch.
Thanks Nadal News for posting the video!
It came down to who could hold their serve and their nerve in the tie-breaks, and in the end newbie Milos Raonic was more poised than the veteran Fernando Verdasco and defeated him in straight sets 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5) to win his first ATP title. Match point was a bit anti-climactic, due to an overzealous fan yelling "YEAH" (see video here) when Milos was serving, perhaps breaking Fer's concentration and then he subsequently netted the return. There was apparently a "finger wag" from Fer to the crowd and a whole lot of cursing, but when it came to the trophy presentation, Verdasco held it together and was very complementary of Milos. When discussing the fan incident in his post-match presser, Fer said "If they don't know the rules in tennis, they can go see soccer." But finally calmed down by the end and jokingly said this about his strategy for his upcoming match against Milos on Wed, "Pray a lot that Milos will make a lot of double faults."
I'm not going to go on and on and on about the arrival of Milos, (he IS the Real Deal, and if you want to read it you can find it here and here), but I will say that I am excited about Memphis next week, because these two meet again in the first round, and you know what they say about payback........
And that's all she wrote from the SAP Open.
Fernando Verdasco has been the topic of my last 2 posts, I think it must be the haircut!
Fer has joined up with Spanish footballers David Villa, Xabi Alonso and Sergio Canales to model in Adidas new "Be Faster" campaign. Unfortunately the old hair is still present in these photos, but Fer still brings the Sexy. Enjoy!
