Red Hot Spanish Armada against US in Davis Cup Semifinals

Spain captain Emilio Sanchez Vicario picked Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Fernando Verdasco and Feliciano Lopez for the best-of-five series against the Americans in the Davis Cup semifinals next week from Sept. 19-21 on clay at Madrid’s Las Ventas bullring.

Hot Spaniard #1
Many fans think Rafael Nadal is the hottest but I only love him as my favourite tennis player.

He might look a bit sloppy here (Esther, thanks for Matt's pic) but wait till you click here.
Warning: Nudity inside.

Hot Spaniard #3
For me, Feliciano is the no. 1!

In the meanwhile, United States captain Patrick McEnroe had chosen Andy Roddick, Sam Querrey (replacing James Blake) and Mike and Bob Bryan.
“They’re a very compact team,” Sanchez Vicario said.

“All of the matches will be very complicated.”
Nicolas Almagro was listed as a reserve for Spain, while 16th-ranked Tommy Robredo was left off the team.
“Almagro is the player—after Nadal—who had obtained the best (clay) results among our tennis players up to Roland Garros,” Sanchez Vicario said.

“Robredo has also done well, but perhaps should have done something better to be in this group.”
Sanchez Vicario also added that Nadal may not be at the start of training Saturday. However Sanchez Vicario said Nadal is very enthusiastic about this tie.”
