No. 29-ranked Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela aka “El Torino,” tweeted this photo of Pico, DelPo and Chela dining together in Sevilla:
Captain Tito gave the nickname “El Torino” to the 32-year old Argentine, after the old car. He often signs cameras with the name after winning matches, most impressively after his R4 win at Roland Garros this year, which gave him a 2nd career QF appearance at RG. Somewhat of a car enthusiast, Chela once referred to Muzz as a Lotus car.
Pico is a Chevy, like the one referenced in Don McLean’s song “American Pie.” Pico and Don McLean share somewhat similar hairstyles, although I would rate Pico’s more highly.
DelPo as a Ferrari reminds me of the time he drove a Lexus with Serena Williams for a publicity event in Madrid (Lexus not pictured–it’s only a priceless photo of DelPo and Serena together, wearing gigantic wreaths…and I don’t want to discuss DelPo’s outfit):
Missing from the photo in Chela’s tweet is “El Rey.” Which car would Nalby be? Food for thought! (The Pope-mobile is not an option).
