So I have this weird thing about pics. If there's a huge crowd I generally won't venture through to get a clean shot unless my favorite players are involved. This typically applies to Rafa, who is always surrounded by crowds that go 5-7 rows deep. I just assume that everyone else there is a bigger fan than I am and thus I let them get the prime spots and go merrily on my way.
So there I was just chilling out when I saw that little corgi-colored ponytail flopping about. I'm not saying how I got to the front but let's just say a few kids had to die. That's all I'll cop to. Oh and to the guy who kept at me to sit down: Shut the fuck up.
So you guys can thank Sam for not only these Rafa pics (which aren't that great, sorry) but also for rather hilariously scurrying over to stop an errant ball that was about to roll onto Rafa's court as he was serving. She's a RafaKAD, after all. Can't have him going down on her watch.
Corgis are protective like that.
Smell the pit, Rafa. Smell it all. day. long.
