Madrid Masters: A Cautionary Tale

Iker Casillas, upon entering the arena, is immediately struck with streaming eyes and makes for the nearest slim, dark haired lady to kiss him better. Er… Iker…? Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

Thanks to Mario Balotelli’s discovery that he is allergic to grass (a scenario comparable to being a Kickette staffer and allergic to cake) we are all now aware of the impact that pollen can have on the delicate olfactory systems of elite athletes. This matter was brought sharply into focus once again this weekend as several La Liga players ventured to the Madrid Masters final to watch Novak Djokovic beat Rafa Nadal; a result that must have pleased the crowd no end.

Our boys were way too busy for tennis though, as these pictures show.

Fortunately, Iker’s lady love Sara Carbonero kept a close eye on him and was able to avert disaster. Iker was led from the stadium before he could generate an international incident. Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

Someone wasn’t so pleased, though. Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

Meanwhile, Diego Forlan finds that pollen makes him frisky. Moments later, he and girlfriend fiancée (brain fart!) Zaira Nara were spotted racing from the arena brandishing armfuls of flowers. Bless. Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

    No wonder Ronaldo is sweating,he is probably holding his breath so his shirt doesn't explode-it's very tight and very short btw Ronaldo's pants seem to be falling down…,Irina could use a comb for her hair and a stylist who would tell her what to wear for this kind of event,or she could just look at Sara and see just how classy and cute she looks in that dress and Ronaldo could get a few tips from Iker

  2. Jane says:

    Also, I am not one who follows fashion trends closely but hell, I would be his stylist willingly and help him get a better wardrobe o.O with the money he has, he can possibly by anything but no he sticks to cheetah prints and stuff :/

  3. @AgnesWonka says:

    I love the three couples!
    Cris needs a stronger deodorant! hello! didn't he realized that detail?

  4. Lulu says:

    Iker…..you never fail. Cris.. why? Sara>Irina.

  5. Real_Jen says:

    Cris and Irina love. Cutest video ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk6qQGep1os

  6. Real_Jen says:

    They are so so cute! love them! check this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk6qQGep1os

  7. Emari says:

    there's nothing less pleasing, than sweaty armpits and the boy stealing my shirts.

  8. sarakhatmi says:

    Iker and sara are soulmates, they are madly in love, it is spo cute to see. But i think chris and irina will be history soon. The dont look in love at al they looked grumpy and angry at the game. Reguarding chris babyboy, he lives in portugal with his grandma as far as i know, he is not in spain and if he is chris is not hanging out with him at al…

  9. @khaledezzat says:

    ronaldo sense of fasion is=0

  10. Futbol_ lova! says:

    whoa! I thought Mrs Casillas was polite..saw that vid and the least you do when you arrive late to a place is to greet the people, especially when they're acquintances of your husband…

  11. Ninya says:

    Zaira Nara looks so beautiful.

  12. coco says:

    is it me but did anyone catch that Cris's pants are falling as he and his walker are leaving the match? Or are the pits just that distracting…. no pic of the RAMOS at the matches anywhere?

    • @DebStimson says:

      I noticed that too. What the heck is the belt for Cris? lol

      Sergio has to miss the game with Getafe's because of cards so he was allowed to stay in Sevilla a bit longer.
      But on a similar note, Lara Alvarez was there with some other guy. Someone had posted a link on FB that had several pix of the match and she was in one of them. I can't find the link now or I would post it.

  13. FootyFanUSA says:

    I never realized hoe much sarah and irina look alike.

  14. Ashley says:

    Woah Irina looks hot. I like her top. She & Cris were so cute cuddling and kissing at the match.

    • @DebStimson says:

      hmm…3 thumbs down?!

      Irina is starting to grow on me. Whether she's in it just for the career move, I don't know…time will tell. CR7 seems to be happy with her so for his sake, I hope it works.

    • AllTheWay..Iker ;D says:

      I love Irina! She is really cute! I dont get it why there are thumbs down.. this is mean.! Irina is beautiful 8and I dont even like Cristiano!
      She looks really nice and friendly!

  15. Angelie says:

    ~LMAO~ … but looking at the picture I think your right… jajajjajajajajajajaja

  16. mochara says:

    Haha Iker wih Fayke would stir things up a bit, pass the popcorn!!
    Forlan's fiancé is beautiful!

  17. Md2505 says:

    You missed Sami Khedira and new girlfriend – Germany's Next Topmodel Winner Lena Gercke (2010ish or somethin). They were also watching some game and looking lovely!

  18. Thea says:

    RM boys have A LOT of time on their hands these days!!!!

  19. JulieFromParis says:

    HAHAHA, Iker with the "look in ya eye so devilish", I love that :)

  20. elephantmousie says:

    Forlan's future wife looks simply gorgeous!

    • chay says:

      i think she is prettier than sara and irina, for sure. and i just adore diego!

  21. Ronaldo´s armpits eww

  22. MrsCasillas says:

    As I saw the picture of Iker who is going to kiss Sara.. i was nearly crying!!
    Why Girls WHY CANT THIS HAPPEN TO US?!
    But Sara looks really sympatic!
    ANd they seem to be really in love… (Why Iker.. why not me?!) ;D
    Forlan and his girl look really sweet with each other.!
    I think Irina is beautiful *_*

  23. Gladys says:

    I think Sarah is really beautiful in a natural (eye makeup aside) not overly done way. Her dress is really cute, not trashy or too dressy. She's always in nice muted colors that look good on her– gray, brown, olive. And she and Iker seem like a solid match– both fairly smart and serious in a good way. She's won me over lately.

  24. fabiola says:

    The girl with iker, first pic, is Irina!

    By the way I love Sara's handbag

    • AllTheWay..Iker ;D says:

      WTF WHAT?!!!!! Haha omg.. :D
      By the way (from me) Iker looks hot :D

  25. Summer says:

    Love Iker and Diego but Cris you really need some deodorant!!!

  26. Stat says:

    Is it a a tennis match or a "please please take a picture" moment? I'm sorry, but no matter what Sara and Irina do, they will never convince me this is true love, and "nooooo, I'm not here 'cause he's who he is and I wanna be someone".
    And why do those two look sooooo similar in many ways? XDDD
    Awn, Cris, you're *classy* as usual, but next time don't steal Irina's shirt, please? That's just not fair! <3

  27. Jen says:

    Iker…always adorable. CRon…NEVER adorable…..I really don't see what all the fuss is about. He is a terrible father, a half decent actor/player, has horrible taste in women, and is gross and sweaty?
    Again, Iker=GOOD, CRon=UGH.

    • FootyFanUSA says:

      Whatever I’d still do him

    • Jane says:

      a half decent actor/player?

      LOL! You can hate him all you want but atleast look at his player profile objectively. He has scored 36 goals in league matches alone so he is a BRILLIANT player regardless of his taste in women and clothes (which I agree is pretty tacky)

  28. JA7 says:

    Iker, I love that man..what a hottie.

  29. Liz says:

    In the pics from The Daily Mail, look at the 2nd to the last pic. WTF is going on with her hair? Looks like CR's sweat got all over it! Both look greasy and gross. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1384…

    And of course she is in Spain working…not the US. She only goes to movie premieres in the US now since no one cares about the SI cover anymore. She hasn't been on one talk show or anything since February.

    • Cammie says:

      I saw pics of her at a Bridal show in Spain, It's funny how models who just had babies are getting more work then her. Her US career isn't taking off, that's why she is keeping this relationship going..to get more work in Spain.

      • Liz says:

        Miranda Kerr. She is getting tons of work and is always on entertainment TV shows.

        I have hear more about all the other SI models on entertainment TV then Irina. Since her cover debut she is only been talked about on TMZ.

    • Susana says:

      Obviously this girl doesn't know what a comb is. Who colored her hair? Nuno or Ze? :)

  30. nandosfreckles says:

    Don't Sara and Irina look similar to each other?
    You know just saying… anyway Iker looks gorgeous as always, shame I can't say the same about Crissy.

    • Kat says:

      They do! A little… As for Iker looking great, I was about to say the same thing, then I saw on his shoulder the strap of his damn man bag! Uggggh! Why, Iker, why?

  31. GlamGooner says:

    shield clearly let CR7 down *holding back laughter* bigger shirt next time…sorry Irina

  32. Cammie says:

    Does Cris spending any free time with his son, Irina was there to earn her PR for her career. Sorry I just don't feel geniune love between them, Cris looks silly parading around with this woman who is obviously using him to get more work for her boderline career. I guess his sweat shows that he knows this…

    • Catie2838 says:

      I was just thinking, doesn't it seem like Irina spends like 80% of her time in NY and LA? How can they actually be dating? I hear more about them doing things on separate continents than on the same one. And it seems someone has whacked a ball at Cris' head because apparently he's forgotten he has progeny.

      • jae says:

        i'm not the hugest irina fan (or a fan of hers at all) but maybe she has a lot of work in NY and LA?? A model's career is short lived. I'm not saying this is the case, but if that's where her work was and that meant spending 80% of time away from your bf every couple weeks then I'd understand. **waits for thumbs down**

  33. Ellie says:

    Iker looks good, and happy, which is nice.
    Also, i am so happy that he is finally on twitter. :D :D :D :D :D

    • Maria says:

      Iker is not on twitter, all Iker accounts are fake. Arbeloa said he did not believe it then another journalist confirmed that its not him. I am sorry.

      • Ellie says:

        oh thats really quite sad. i just looked now, and his only tweet has been deleted.

    • Maria says:

      Sorry, I am wrong that account is verified but according to Arbeloa Iker is not gonna use it. Lets all write to him and convince him!

      • JulieFromParis says:

        it's been created so there will be no more weird people pretending they are iker casillas. Same goes for Florentino Perez. Idea of the club apparently.

        • @DebStimson says:

          Actually, a good strategy, imo. Too many impostors, who could start so much drama by saying random things on twitter or FB, that claim to be the real deal.

    • @AgnesWonka says:

      link link link link :) )))

  34. Angelie says:

    I have question … is it a crime being a culé … and loving Iker … I just find him … WOOOOW!!! (Note: he is porbably 1 of the few … guys from Madrid that I like) … & CR7 .. he is sexy wont deny the man that …but c'mon … I understand it was hot … but sweating that much (get some better deodorant) … next time .. wear long/less tight shirt OR go shirtless… as for Forlan & his future wife … beautiful couple …

    I saw a video on TVE … and my thoughts are

    Iker/Sara – look in love … but I don't get the same vibe wiht Cris/Irina …. (SORRY)

    • MeSergio&SaraIker says:

      Nooo its not! Im 100% Barca fan and I love Sergio&Iker <3 ;)

      Cant belive Sara is soooo skinny. Skinnier than Irina.
      …and CR7`s sweat haha ;) ) its really funny and not sexy at all!

    • Jen says:

      Iker is wearing a shirt and sweater and CRon is only wearing a tshirt……CR is NOT sexy, just sweaty and gross!

    • NinaNoir says:

      Good advice for Cris, the going shirtless part ;)

    • chay says:

      I think it is okay to like an "enemy": i adore leo messi and i'm a madridista!

      Yeah, the underarm sweat just isn't sexy, CRon–go for a lighter-coloured shirt next time

      • Angelie says:

        I 4got to put that … wear a lighter shirt but I was thinking about it … & it's good to know that Madridista like Messi … (cause some of the the Madridistas that i know online are i dont care OR i HATE Leo … )

        • @DebStimson says:

          How can you not like Messi? He's so talented and adorable. Maybe they don't like him because of his constant comparison to CR7? To me, they are both world class players with 2 very different styles of play. Both are fab. to watch.

        • Sarah, Madrid says:

          Well, I dislike him a bit for his classico throwing ball accident, but I still find him extremly talented and I appreciate his talent.
          I am a Madridista, Pep is in my fantasy land!

    • Angelie says:

      thanx 4 the replies … it's good to know that i can be a culé & love a Madridista … jajaja

  35. Elis says:

    Cristiano armpits were sweating badly. Cristiano needs to use some decent deodorant.

  36. Zahara says:

    aaa rafa lost!
    i dont like that!
    but its okay, cant win em all!

    iker, what are you doing with that woman in the first picture?wait till you get home!sara will eat you!mwahaha!
    lol, but iker and sara, iker and lady in first pic all look so cute!
    whoa, cris, maybe u shoulnt have worn that shirt.

  37. @linvinnaar says:

    At one point, Cristiano wore Irina's pink aviators. I think it's a crime.

  38. Sarah, Madrid says:

    First, Hard luck Rafa! I feel gutted that he lost at home!
    Kaka, Caravalho was there too, Kickette Miguel Torres too!! He was looking good, he actually stole the show for me ( I miss you Miguel in Real). Irina again with the outfit, I really don't get her

    Sarah and Iker look so adorable, break my heart to say, but they did! Btw, Iker went into very heated argument on with some old guy sitting next to him! I bet he was arguing Higuain goal was goal, yes it was and Pepe red was not, I am telling it wasn't! (( It looked like it )) lol.

    • @DebStimson says:

      "Btw, Iker went into very heated argument on with some old guy sitting next to him! I bet he was arguing Higuain goal was goal, yes it was and Pepe red was not, I am telling it wasn't! (( It looked like it )) lol"

      How hilarious if that was what was being said! lol

  39. Leaaa says:

    someone give that boy some Lynx!

  40. Louise says:

    That's a lot of sweat, Cris.

    But Iker managed to look presentable!

  41. Adriana says:

    Zaira Nara is no longer just his girlfriend – she's his fiancé!
    I love them together <3

  42. raz says:

    Ronaldo needs some deodorant! And as sexy as I find Forlan his crazy eyes are too crazy in this pic
