Of the many mysteries at Queen’s club this past week (Where is Roddick’s ankle strapping and foundation wristband? How many times can you fall down in one match and NOT get injured? What does training with a cage fighter actually involve?), the biggest question was: who the fuck is Barney?
After complete silence on twitter for months, Fernando Verdasco came back in typical fashion, tweeting up a storm late at night before his big match against Roddick (which he went on to lose, also in typical fashion). But Fer was not alone. No, he was with his friend Barney. He tweeted about being out in London together with him.
Taking pictures of Barney shaving and tweeting about it. Ok….
Not sure how this is funny. Guess you had to be there, Fer…
And Barney tweeted pics of Fer too. I’m pretty sure the major qualification for friendship with Verdasco is willingness to take many, many pictures of him. Barney shot him posing in Adidas
Awesome lighting job! Looks like Fer is standing in front of a burly, legless eskimo. Two thumbs up!
And Barney took pictures of Verdasco running in the park. I would assume in slo-motion…
And minutes ago, Verdasco tweeted a photo with Barney in front of a restaurant named Nando’s. So funny! What are the odds of other people being named Fernando! Crazy!
So who is this Barney? And why are he and Fer sudden bosom buddies? Is this a master plan to make Feli jealous? Or does this mark the end of #TeamPretty once and for all? Guess we all will have to stay tuned…
