Feliciano Lopez cuddling a lion cub? If he still had the long locks, it would be a Harlequin Romance cover come to life!
He visited The Lion Park in Gauteng Province, South Africa, on Sunday, home to “over 80 lions, including the rare white lion and many other wildlife, including cheetah, wild dog, hyena, jackal, antelope, zebra and giraffe.”
“It was an incredible experience.” Lopez said of meeting the lions. “I was a little bit scared at first because I didn’t know how they would behave, but they were really playful and lots fun”. (via ATP.com)
I’d pick the book with David Ferrer on the cover! This footage is from Ferrer’s visit to South Africa last year.
Why is the interviewer talking to Ferrer as if he was 6 years old? I think he knows what a lion is, lady.
Both Spaniards are in Johannesburg this week for the SA Tennis Open, an ATP 250 event. Gael Monfils is the top seed.
