...The Brian twins won Ferrero/Robredo for 6-0, 6-3 and 6-2...

Tomorrow will take place the singles final and the Princes are expected to attend the games of Rafael Nadal and Carlos Moyá, against Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick, respectively.

I love Felipe and Letizia but they seem to be "bad luck" at Spain's international sporting events. Spain always seems to lose whenever they show up for the match. :)

Hmm. That´s not good to hear. I wonder if it was cold in the arena where the match was? Letizia wears a scarf and coat the whole time.

The Princes also gave the Spanish tennis player Manolo Santana the prize of Excellence, as recognition of the International Federation of Tennis. The prize-giving ceremony took place in the central court of the Olympic Stadium of La Cartuja.

Even though I am an American, I am glad that Spain won--just to see the expression on the faces of Felipe and Letizia was a victory.:)

Here's an article about the game:

Holding back tears, Moya ran over and reached up through a rail to greet Prince Felipe, heir to the Spanish throne, and his wife, Princess Letizia.

Since I did get the "Acess Denied" message as well, I decided to attach the pictures.

One opinion about Letizia, she's really a funny cheer....
