Game, Sete and match!

MotoGP attracts it's fair share of celebrities to the World Championship paddock and provides a perfect common ground for famous names from movies, music or sport to indulge in a love of bikes.

This weekend in France it was the turn of top tennis player Juan Carlos Ferrero, who is in Paris for the upcoming Roland Garros tennis tournament, took some time off and went to see his friend Sete Gibernau at Le Mans. The Spanish rider made an impressive race and Ferrero saw all of it from the Telefonica Movistar box as a guest of Gibernau and Dorna.

´This is as exciting as a 5 set match,´ he remarked. ´Every time I come to see Sete he ended up not finishing the race but now he not only finished but also won it. It is unbelievable,´ said Ferrero.

Ferrero will start today his quest for a first title at Roland Garros, playing Michel Kratochvil of Switzerland.
