shirtless: carlos moya

January 13, 2010

Holy mole-y: What is it with the Spaniards and their skin? (I’m not complaining….)

FYI, Carlos Moya is busy getting ready for the 2010 Australian Open, which starts this coming Monday in Melbourne. The draw’ll come out on Friday; you can watch for it here.

flashback: tennis masters cup, 2004 (houston)

September 21, 2008

I was looking for old tennis photos online, and I ran into these pictures taken of the nine guys (including the alternate) who descended upon Houston for the Tennis Masters Cup in 2004.

The Argentines: Guillermo Canas and Gaston Gaudio

The boys: Andy Roddick and Guillermo Coria

The daddies (DILFs?): Lleyton Hewitt and Tim Henman

The ILFs: Marat Safin and Carlos Moya

and Roger Federer

Roger beat Lleyton in straight sets — 6-3, 6-2 — to take his 11th title of 2004 and his second consecutive year-end title.

CC day 4: andy and brooklyn’s puppy love, a new lacoste top, etc.

August 8, 2008

Fun times yesterday (Day 4) at the Countrywide Classic. I sat in on pressers for Carlos Moya and Amer Delic after their tough second round match, which Delic won 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5).

1) Delic had surgery in April to fix a chronic sweating problem.

2) Even John McEnroe and Jim Courier were talking about the significance of that Federer/Nadal Wimbledon final. McEnroe said that we’ll learn a lot about Federer in the coming months (will he disappear ala Borg?), and that he’ll likely get more support from fans now that he’s a little more, uhm, human.

Meanwhile, Andy Roddick notched a routine win over drop shot-obsessed Serbian Dusan Vemic in the feature night match. Andy wore a black/white version of the Super Dry Stripe Polo from Lacoste‘s latest line. Fiancee Brooklyn Decker was there to cheer him on, of course, and we learn in his post-match interview with the skinny-legged Justin Gimelstob (man, what retirement can do to muscles!) that the couple now has a puppy.

Buy: Lacoste Super Dry Stripe Polo, Steward Blue/White, $95.00.

I won’t turn down a facial from james blake!

August 6, 2008

First, some bits:

  • Saw Juan Martin del Potro up close and personal playing doubles with munchkin partner Fabio Fognini.
  • James Blake, who along with Frank Dancevic is a spokesguy for Evian, designed a facial spray bottle (“Brumisateur”) that’ll be sold throughout the U.S. Open Series. Pick it up at evian.com for $5.50.
  • Maria Sharapova is leaving the athlete haven that is Manhattan Beach for the much more celeb-appropriate Topanga Canyon.

Donald Young‘s white Nike Advantage Polo. See the subtle detail in the mesh backing. The 19-year-old took out Tommy Haas 6-2, 6-4 in the first night match.

Papparazi moved into the seats right behind me not during a changeover (boo) but waited until the changeover (yay) to start snapping pics of Kate Hudson, who sat next to Haas’ gf Sara Foster. Look at that bracelet!

Tommy had no less than three K-Swiss shirt changes, treating us to white/black and navy blue crewnecks plus a navy blue polo during the last game of the match.

Switcheroo: In case you didn’t notice — I didn’t until last night! — Xavier Malisse switched from K-Swiss to Lotto prior to Wimbledon. He wore the black Kontact tee with shiny screenprint against Carlos Moya. The Belgian had a shiny ring on his left middle finger to match.

Here’s Mallorcan hunk Carlos Moya attending the 2007 Sports Awards hosted by Diario AS last week in Madrid.

Carlos had a decent 2007. He racked up one title (Umag), made two finals (Acapulco, Sydney), and got some SF and QF appearances at Grand Slams and Masters Series events. Not bad for a 30-year-old…

sightings from the stands: djokovic d. moya

September 7, 2007

The second set of men’s quarterfinal matches at the 2007 U.S. Open happened yesterday with the on-fire David Ferrer beating Juan Ignacio “El Flaco” Chela 6-2, 6-3, 7-5; and Novak Djokovic downing 31-year-old Carlos Moya 6-4, 7-6 (7), 6-1.

At the Nole-Moya match, in the stands:

Candice Bergen with husband Marshall Rose, and 30 Rock‘s Alec Baldwin. (That show’s season premiere is set for October 4. I can’t wait!)

And is it just me, or was Carlos the only one who rocked the Nike Global Power Sleeveless shirt?

trophies: indianapolis, umag, austria, stanford, rio, etc.

July 29, 2007

The trophy gods worked hard to give us some good ones this week:

monaco-trophy.jpg

In the hotfest over at the Austrian Open in Kitzbuehel, Argentinian Juan Monaco (in adidas) got taken to three sets by Potito Starace (wearing Le Coq Sportif). Bonnie was right: Juan should have been in my top 5. Really, I’ve never noticed a six pack bursting out of a shirt like that…

Pictureless: Italian Francesca Schiavone won her first career title in Bad Gastein, but we are without pictures. Congrats, Francesca!

moya-croatia-trophy.jpg

In Umag, veteran Carlos Moya tells us not to write him off just yet with his 6-4, 6-2 win over Andrei Pavel. Gap-toothed or not, he’s still hot. And kudos to the tourney organizers for coming up with that offbeat blue trophy.

Other trophies: Stanford, Pan-American Games, and Indianapolis trophies after the cut…

fortis focus: rafa nadal, his girlfriend, his friend, his clothes

June 24, 2007

On Saturday, Rafa Nadal lost to buddy and countryman Carlos Moya at The Fortis Tennis Classic held at the Hurlingham Club in West London. Here are some photos:

Nadal’s girlfriend, Francesca “Xisca” Perello, watched him play.

A closer look at his Wimbledon attire. I like the orange stripe on the Nike track jacket.

June 14, 2007

Here are some juicy bits and pieces on Rafael Nadal:

His grass garb: Last week we showed you Federer‘s grass season outfit by Nike, so now we’re showing you Rafa’s — that’s it, above. What do you think? Tell us! (via tennisnuts.com)

He holds yet another record: Along with his “longest winning streak on any surface” (81 matches on clay) add this: Nadal been ranked No. 2 for 98 consecutive weeks, the longest in the open era that any player’s been No. 2 without reaching No. 1. (via Orgs & Markets)

A shirtless showdown with Moya: Just watch the video below. ‘Nuf said.

(Note: this is a glimpse into his friendship with Carlos Moya, as described in Rafa’s French Open ATP Blog.)

Roger and Rafa: in blue on the terre battue

May 30, 2007

For the French Open, Nike has dressed both Rafael Nadal and Roger Feder in the same Nike palette.

I prefer this color on Roger. The red version of the shirt wasn’t doing him good. And the blue/white version of Rafa’s shirt is better than the blue/black, which they’ve given back to Carlos the Cursed and poor James Blake (WHAT is going on with that blouse?!).

Which color do you prefer on Roger — red or blue? Tell us.

From left to right: Nadal, Federer, Blake, Moya

carlos moya - roma

Poor Carlos Moya, throwing his racket down in frustration during last week’s Masters Series Rome. Is it because:

a) he lost his first round match against Marcos Baghadatis 2-6, 3-6

or

b) he came to the party dressed in the same Nike outfit as three other gals.

I’m going to say “b.”

I understand that Nike is trying to drive a point home with this line of clothing. But having four different guys photographed in it has crossed into oversaturation. If I was Carlos, I’d be annoyed. Actually, I’d be more annoyed if I was James Blake or Gael Monfils. They had to play each other in the first round while wearing the same outfit.

(And this is just the black/white version we’re talking about. Rafa Nadal has the monopoly on the teal/black version for now.)

battle of the (head)bands

David Ferrer (14) d. Carlos Moya, 1-6, 6-2, 6-3. Two long-haired Spaniards in headbands. Ferrer might have downed Moya in three, but who won the fashion showdown?

moya and nalbandian: exhibition

February 17, 2007

exhibition

I just love this photo… it captures the things I love about the perfect tennis match: carving out an intimate setting amid all the hustle and bustle of the city, getting the crowds up close and personal (though I don’t know about sitting on the ground next to the sidelines), and having two of top players in the world duke it out.

The exhibition was set up to promote the ATP stop in Buenos Aires (Feb. 18-25).
