Yesterday, we got a chance to know the final four ladies a little bit better. Now it's time for the boys. The top four seeds fought their way to the penultimate match at Roland Garros and ensured we'd get some epicness this fortnight. The top half features Rafael Nadal taking on Andy Murray while the bottom half pits Novak Djokovic against Roger Federer. C'mon, let's take a peek...
BIRTH PLACE: Manacor, Mallorca, Spain
RESIDENCE: Manacor, Mallorca, Spain
This Spanish southpaw is the 5-time defending champ and has lost only one match on the red clay of Paris in his career. He enjoys long walks along the beaches of his beloved Mallorca with his girlfriend, Xisca Perello, fishing, competing against his boys on Playstation while in their undies and playing down any and all talk of him winning anything. EVAH.
BIRTH PLACE: Dunblane, Scotland
RESIDENCE: London, England and some place in Miami, FL
This Brit baller is gunning to reach his first final at Roland Garros and fourth overall. He’s been known to stretch out his jaw and stick out his tongue (see pic) all weirdly during matches, vacay with Blackberry and his girl, Kim Sears, and, like Rafa, play with his joystick. A LOT.
BIRTH PLACE: Basel, Switzerland
RESIDENCE: Bottmingen, Switzerland and Dubai, too
The 16-time Grand Slammer is going for his second title in the City of Light. This husband and father of two enjoys hanging out with his celeb friends such as Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani, and Anna Wintour, monogramming anything he can get his Swiss hands on and swimming while fully clothed (I suppose I would too if I got paid big bucks to do it).
BIRTH PLACE: Belgrade, Serbia
RESIDENCE: Monte Carlo, Monaco
This Serb is undefeated in 2011 and is going for his second consecutive major in Paris and third overall. Never one to by shy, he enjoys wearing speedos while walking down runways or being shot for a magazine story, playing tennis on the wings of a plane and swapping spit with his girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, on some of the world’s most glamorous red carpets.
Good luck boys!
