a budding bromance?


Nikoliano? … or maybe Lopydenko? Josh pointed out this quick Q&A by the folks at rolandgarros.org, who drilled quarterfinalist Nikolay Davydenko about a few things, including who he thought was the nicest guy on tour. Here’s how the world’s top Russian tennis player responded:

“They’re all really nice: Federer, Nadal. All of the guys in the top 100 are cool. But if you asked me which one was the best looking I’d say Feliciano Lopez. Everyone thinks he’s gorgeous, with his blue eyes and curly hair.”

Scoreline: Tenth seed Kolya just fell to real-deal Robin Soderling 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 a day after the Swede upset Rafa Nadal (and Nikolay beat eight seed Verdasco in straight sets). Meanwhile, Lopez dropped out in the second round after losing to Janko Tipsarevic.

    i’ve never quite understood why people think lopez is the hottest shit. to me his nose is a little big/awkward to give him that title.

      hah. well, I feel the same way about y’all drooling over Verdasco. And over Nadal. To each his own, I guess.

        Erwin, I have to tell you Feli seemed kind of snobby to me; I guess he’s always felt like he was exercising the privilege of the gorgeous or something? Rafa and FeVer (all his drama this year aside) were much more polite when I had the chance to meet them, which for me warmed their charm right up.

        I guess the good part about that is there’s plenty of choices for everyone … 🙂

    honestly, ‘lopo’ is quite the ‘little lamb’ of tennis. he is self conscious, quiet, but a magnifique on court. as all the others and is sad to see he isn’t as rich and isn’t the only old one. a strike of ‘massive good luck’ could be hard in these seeming last days,..
