Fernando has torn himself from the side of Baby E and is now in Port Aventura for an exhibition. He posed with what I can only assume is Woody Woodpecker, which is kind of meta considering that was the nickname of some Ana's forum posters gave him.
But he was asked about Baby E. As is well documented here, I don't speak Spanish so I have no idea what he's saying. But according to some posters in her forum, this is a rough translation of the article accompanying the video clip:
The sportsman admitted that he gets along very well with Ivanovic, but that he only knows her for three months, “still I haven’t got time to realize what has happened between us. The press confirmed our relation before we said anything.”
In fact, when the “supposed first declarations” of their relationship went out, Verdasco asked Ivanovic directly if she had said anything to the press. “She didn’t say anything. There were many people who asked her about us because they had seen us together in the China Open. Later I believe that her manager said in a press conference that we had known ourselves and that we were getting along very well, but no more ". “The press had confirmed it before we said anyhing ", he continued. In addition, Verdasco and Ivanovic like “to go slow” and they want to know each other better before saying anything.
Nevertheless, Verdasco revealed how they meet: in an Adidas's dinner, brand that supports both of them.
And what do they speak about when they are together? “We are not always speaking about tennis. We have a very good relation and we are happy that we know each other ", he concluded.
So get to work, Spanish speakers (Kiki!). Anything else worth mentioning from the video?
UPDATED: The Never Failing Kiki answers the Bat Phone:
This is the same press conference that I saw yesterday in Corazon de Otoño. I'll start out with this one. He said that Ana was one of the best, if not THE best, person he has ever met. That she always had a smile on her face, and that was something that made him feel happier, feel like everything is much better. In this vídeo he also said that if he was not a tennis player, he might not have had the chance to ever meet her. That they went out to dinner with the respective teams, and got along very well.
This new vídeo is from a different part of the press conference (God, spanish reporters can get tiresome with so many private questions!). They don't really show the question, but I believe they ask him to confirm their relationship. He starts out by saying that they only know each other for 3 months, that they still didn't have time to see how everything will go. That people are going too fast with this.. Then he says that when the press published things that Ana had supposedly said, that they were together and that he made her very happy, he imediately asked her about it.. and that she said no. (laughs from everyone at this moment). He continues by saying that she told him she had not said anything at all. There were lots of people asking his agent if they were together, because of them being together in the China Open and Doha. I don't understand what he says at this point (not the spanish, but what he means).. but it's something along the lines that her manager informed people that they had met at the US Open and that they got along very well, and no more info. And then all the press alredy started to say they were together. That they didn't even have time to say they were together, that the press was already confirming it before they could even say anything. That they were asking him something that they still didn't have time to be completely sure of, that both of them like to take things slowly, get to know each other very well first, and as he had said previously, they still didn't have enough time to see how everything will go.
Then the reporters ask him if Rafa introduced them (everything comes down to Rafa!). He laughs and denies it. He then says that they got to know each other because they have the same clothing sponsor and that Ana's coach also coaches him sometimes. And at the US Open, they had a dinner with all the Adidas group. He mentions that he knew her before, but only by saying hi and goodbye. At this dinner they got to know each other better, and from then on they started to talk more and more often.
He is asked about what is the topic of conversation between them, and he says they do talk about tennis, about their careers, that it makes it easier that they are tennis players. But they also talk about life, about everything.. that they are not all day tennis tennis tennis. He says that they have great relations and that they are both very very happy to have met each other.
The last part of the vídeo is about a rumour os a relationship between Feliciano López and a spanish TV host. He says that he thinks Feliciando is single and happy to be single. haha But they should ask him, since he doesn't like to talk about his private life, imagine talking about others.
All together now: THANKS, KIKI!
