While temps were largely manageable at this year’s Cincinnati Open, the sun was bright enough and the courts hot enough to prompt many of the male players to get rid of those pesky sweaty shirts and show off their defined abs. Sunday of the Masters event was no exception, as Feliciano Lopez and Tommy Robredo drew a large crowd to their afternoon practice session.
I was able to wriggle into an open spot on Feli’s side of the court, hence the majority of pictures are of him. Tommy should have plenty of screen time in an upcoming post, however, from his shirtless practice with David Ferrer. So stay tuned, Armada fans.
As always, *click* the pics for the LARGE versions, for all the added detail.Funny story–Tommy took off his sunglasses, and *every* photo I took of him was blurry. As soon as he put the shades back on, all my photos were clear. So apparently Tommy’s eyes are too powerful to be captured on film…you should perhaps be wary of staring into them, he could be like the angels on “Supernatural.”
Have always loved the one-handed backhand, so here are some more shots of Feli’s…
