Rafanatic Shakira was spotted in the front row watching the world's top baller get pushed by Federico Gil in Miami today.
The Portuguese qualifier managed to break Rafa twice but the Spaniard's quality came through, grabbing his 10th consecutive match with a 7-5, 6-3 scoreline. He'll face either Igor Andreev or Stanislas Wawrinka for a spot in the quarterfinals.
This isn't the first time this season the Colombian Grammy Award-winning singer has been spotted rooting on Rafa. She was also spotted giving him a hand in Abu Dhabi back in January.
It's been duly noted, Shakira. We're watching. Closely.
UPDATE: Thanks to Johanne for sending over this video link (read: evidence) of Shakira's behind-the-scenes meet up with a few ballers including Rafa. He gives her a shirt, she offers singing lessons, and she calls him an "animal". Say what?! We're still watching. Closely. CHECK IT -
