Some nice behind the scenes photos from Hit for Haiti. I’m guessing that these were all taken before the guys played their match on Friday. I’m basing this on Rafa’s t-shirt, which he changed once he was on court. Also, everyone seems to be getting along!
“I know my fabrics, Rafa, and this is not 100% organic cotton!”:
Rafa’s looking. . . mellow.
Is that a come-hither look from Pete Sampras? I’m starting to suspect everyone hit the hospitality suite beforehand.
Love Roger’s indulgent expression – “Awwww, old people kissing!”:
A senior moment from Stefanie:
Here’s Rod Laver desperately trying to catch Roger’s eye: “I sense danger, my son!”
“Martina, you talk the best shit!” “No, Andre, you do – really!”
Speaking of the, um, awkward moment between Sampras and Agassi, Matt Cronin @tennisreporters was at Roger’s post-match presser on Sunday night after Fed beat Hanescu in three sets. Federer gave his take on the situation:
“I don’t think it was crazy bad, but it was a bit awkward because you didn’t know, was it just fun or not fun?”
“Now being a father, I thought we had to give both guys a time out.”
Summed it up quite nicely, I think. Roger and Rafa were definitely the most mature guys on the court that night. But let’s remember the most important thing about the evening: $1 Million raised for earthquake relief!
