The Spanish Armada: Spanish Men’s Tennis is Muy Caliente!

I apologize for including so little beef cake on this blog — Lou, Lloyd and the two Dales are worthy specimens, but it’s a big world out there ladies!

And it’s Labor Day weekend at the US Open, one of the premiere opportunities for some guy watching. In fact, I’m not even going to include the whole Men’s Draw, even the megahunk Roger Federer. I’m going to focus, laser-like on what my daughter calls “the biological miracle that is Spanish Men’s Tennis.”  These five caballeros are through to the Round of Sixteen; they can all play tennis. One of them, Rafa Nadal, is ranked number one in the world, and I’ve spoken before of my conflicted Mama/Mrs. Robinson feelings for him. But he’s not the only slice of torta de carne in Iberia. Not by a long forehand passing shot. Does the excellent Spanish tennis system screen little kids not just on talent but on their potential to be models for the covers of paperback bodice rippers?

Where to start? Well, there’s nothing not to love about Feliciano (Andy Murray’s mother calls him “Deliciano”) Lopez, world # 25.

Moving down in tennis rankings to #41, consider the dreamy face of Tommy Rebredo —

There’s nuthin’ #41 there in the masculine pulchritude draw.

Thank you, SIL John, for snapping a shirtless David (that would be Dahveed) Ferrer. Heavy sigh, and some heavy breathing too. He’s ranked #12.

Even my Federer – loving daughter admitted that Dahveed was pretty darn breathtaking to watch at practice.

You may have seen Fernando Verdasco in considerably fewer clothes when he was modelling undies for Calvin Klein — now that ad campaign was a 140 mph ace down the T! Here he is in GQ. (Photo credit: Nathaniel Goldberg.)

I had the pleasure of watching Rafa Nadal’s match today, and the greatness of his game can almost make me forget the greatness of his guns and buns. Most of his photos show him as the sweet “Carravagest seraph”  nino he is. Not this one — thank you, New York Magazine.

I mean, let’s look at our homegrown guys. Andy Roddick’s good-looking. John Isner and Sam Querry are skinny cheerful giants. I like them all, but puhleeze.

All this heavenly Spanish man flesh has been posted with a higher ulterior motive. Watch tennis, learn tennis, love tennis. Hey, maybe even PLAY tennis! And if you just want more peeks at some of the hottest men in the world, I suggest you go to and scroll down until you see a feature on the right hand side: Tennis Hunks.

Gee, this was fun. Vamos!

    There is barely anyone considered ‘drool worthy’ left in the world that I don’t have those “conflicted Mama/Mrs. Robinson” feelings about! They are all so YOUNG, damn their eyes!
