The Eve of Wimbledon!



Above: Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem. Just two of today's current
Tennis hopefuls for this year's Wimbledon Championships.
The above image was part of a photo spread in last September's
Vogue Magazine.
Below: Austrian Dominic Thiem practicing shirtless for the delighted crowds
at the Cincinnati Masters Tournament last year.
We were hoping that Dominic might have made it to the Final of the Halle Germany
tournament last weekend but he was unfortunately knocked out in the early rounds.
And the surprising winner turned out to be Croatian Borna Coric who beat
Roger Federer.

Dominic Thiem is a player I've been watching these past few years. And along with
Coric, Alexander Zverev and  new pin up boy Denis Shapovalov, they're all part
of the New Generation of tennis stars.

Fans of Dominic Thiem have not failed to notice that he has amazing buttocks, the kind
you can only get from sport activity on ice as in Ice Hockey or Figure Skating.
Perhaps he was involved in Ice Hockey in the past.

Apparently U.K tv tennis fans will be in for a bit of a shock next year when they
discover that the bulk of tv tennis will be switching over to Amazon just as Top Gear recently did.
Naturally that infuriated my Tennis loving partner as he tends to record a lot of
tv tennis and prefers to have a hard copy on a disc, not a USB stick.

Of course with the start of Wimbledon on Monday it can only mean the return of the
big mouth Big Mac, John McEnroe, a man that simply cannot stop talking, especially
in between tennis points. In our house he drives us all up the wall constantly bombarding
us with facts we didn't need to know about. I really don't know why sport has to
be dissected and analized. And when they all talk over one another it's as though they're
all individually competing against each other as to who knows the most. Jim Courier
can be very annoying as well, constantly bombarding us with trivial details.
Imagine if he ever worked alongside McEnroe. That would be a complete nightmare.


Poor ol' Dan Maskell. He'd probably turn in his grave just knowing that Tennis
all time bad boy John McEnroe ended up as a legitimate tv tennis commentator.
Still, McEnroe will be happy with his £150,000 that Wimbledon is paying him this year, 

something that
former Wimbledon Champion Martina Navratilova is not too happy about.

I'm not sure what to think about tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios.
But I'll say one thing and that is you get your moneys worth
watching him. It seems that controversy follows him everywhere
he goes.
In one of his early round matches at Queens Club last week
he was apparently swearing like a trouper, although as I had
the tv volume on low I wasn't sure what he was grumbling about.
And if it wasn't for the commentator I wouldn't have known
until he repeatedly, and rather stupidly, apologized for Kyrgios's
bad language.
Even in his semi-final match with Marin Cilic the naughty
child in him emerged once more as he jerked off his water
bottle in a sexual gesture. And that cost him a £13,000 fine
by the Queens Club.

Oddly enough Kyrgios turned out with Lleyton Hewitt in the
main draw of the Doubles competition, even beating the top
seeds in the 1st Round.
And there was I thinking Lleyton Hewitt had retired.
Has Hewitt found something to replace tennis or does
retirement not suit him?

Asian Beauties at MaleColor

Above and below are a few of my favourite images from a handy
little source of Asian male images that all come from the pages
at MALECOLOR featuring mainly the magazine pages section.
I particularly like these top images of a model called Nut,
yes a typical Thai name. And that top image is from Brothers
Magazine edition 20.
The two images below are from premiere magazine
Onyx edition One.

Here's an image that keeps popping up online. I'm not sure of his
name but he was photographed by Mart for Arouse Magazine No3.
Oddly enough he doesn't look like your average nude Thai model
but more like a Thai movie star, what with those amazing eyes and
that beautiful clear complexion.
Well what can you say about online phenomenon Babe Ittipon.
I posted up a super big post featuring the very best of his
images HERE last December. And it's still the most searched
for post here on Chrysalism. And if there were Charts for
most popular posts then Babe Ittipon has been the No1 most
popular post here since mid December last year. There's
simply been no competition. Perhaps it might be something
to do with the fact that since last year I've been adding more
images of him into that big post.
And although some of the images come close to Babe revealing
all, it's as if everyone is waiting for the big full frontal nude shot,
the one we're all waiting for.


(Below: Babe from that big post from last year).
