Shotnews has a few more images from the Davis Cup. Some are similar to others so I won't post them, but here are a few. Hopefully the links will work because I don't know how to do the thumbnails that others post.

Also, a Corbis photographer took some shots from a really odd angle--below them and shooting up--and super close up, but they are actually really neat photos--very different. The last of the four I posted is particularly striking--you'd never know it was taken in a stadium with 27,000+ screaming tennis fans.

It´s great to see them get into the action of the match. And it was easy for the Davis Cup since it was so important and there were so many people in the stadium.

Felipe must be happy now since Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal won Roland Garros for the third time. It's nice that everytime Nadal won there were some member of the Spanish Royal Family watching the match.

Some pictures of Felipe you can find in Getty Images (search 'Roland Garros').

After the match, Nadal climbed onto the stands to get a hug from his entourage. On his way back, he shook hands with Felipe, a very nice gesture.

Nadal would be a worthy candidate for the Prince of Asturias Awards, as Alonso. Does anyone know if he as already been taken into account for this price as he's one of the most successful sports people in Spain.

Yep, I was watching it live here in the U.S. There I was watching and all of a sudden I saw Felipe in the picture. I felt so proud to be able to pick out Felipe like that and tell others that I was with that he is the Prince of Asturia. A couple years ago before I knew much about royalty, Felipe would have just been some guy that Nadal shook hands with and I wouldn't have known who he was.

And I thought it was a very nice gesture as well that Felipe not only shook Nadal's hand but also facilitated an introduction between the Swiss president (Micheline Calmy-Rey), who was seated beside him, and the 3-time French Open champion. Sometimes in the height of all the excitement, many are inclined to forget the little details.

Nadal was a finalist for the POA awards for sports last year: The Prince of Asturias Awards 2006

A little bit OT for this tread... But, I'm going to venture a guess that the jury might steer away from Spaniards this year, unless 1 of their athletes/teams will again have an extraordinary accomplishment between now and the selection date -- e.g. case of basketball team last year. We've already seen Spanish awardees for 2 consecutive years (basketball team in 2006 and Fernando Alonso in 2005); so for an award that is striving to strengthen it's international prestige, jury might consider searching again beyond their borders. Nonetheless, I am pretty sure that Nadal will be awarded in the future; but for now, he has yet to grab the #1 spot in tennis from Roger Federer... what a fun rivalry! especially for an avid spectator

You would not have been alone Aurora In the coverage I was watching, I'm pretty sure that the commentators did not know who he was too... because while Felipe was shaking Nadal's hand, they only said something along the lines of "Nadal goes on greeting people" no ID In their head, they must have been sure that he must be some important guy in Spain because he was sitting at the Presidential Box and camera kept on flashing his face when the Spanish national anthem was played.

Although I can imagine the average person not spanish and not a big fan of royalty wouldn't know who he is, I think reporters should have a clue as to who he is. If I were commenting on the game and I saw every photographer take his picture during the national anthem of Spain, I would try and do everything possible to find out who he is. If only to inform other people watching the game at home of who this person is. This does strike me for a commentator as 'beetje dom'

Thanks Kartheina, yes, you are right. Nadal is a great sportsman but still room to improve. Maybe when he has done the Grand Slam or has won at Roland Garros five times or more ... Sportspeople are always great for these awards as they are very popular and bring media attention. People from other fields might have made as valuable achievements but they are not so much recognized in public. From that perspective it's a good thing that the PoAA honours people from different backgrounds.

A little off topic: Are you talking about Gustavo Kuerten, who handed the trophy to Nadal last Sunday? I didn't watch the match, unfortunatelly, but I saw this moment on tv and also Knew that Felipe watched the match and it were nice if Felipe talked to Guga .

Sorry... I meant Nadal. But, thanks for reminding me, I actually forgot that Kuerten was also a 3-time French Open champ I did not see Felipe taking to him because I believe Guga was seated somewhere else to make it easier for him to get to the court for the presentation. But, who knows, the 2 might have talked without the cameras around.
