Do I have your attention now? Not yet? Well, how about this…
He’s 6′ 4′, athletic, fluent in two languages, working on a degree in Business Marketing, and he’s a single.
The word ‘perfect’ is used as an adjective. It is also used to describe Carlos Lopez Villa. The junior from Madrid, Spain is perfect when it comes to playing tennis. For the past two years, Carlos has been perfect – a perfect 17 and 0 at home.
“I don’t think I’m the perfect man,” he says with a smile. “When it comes to tennis, I just want to go out there and get a ‘W’ for my team.”
Carlos started playing the game at the age of ten when he went to the courts with his father and brother. From there, he has had a love affair for the game.
“I like the fight. It is a fight against your opponent. You are trying to beat him. That is where my passion for tennis comes from.”
Before each match, he has a routine. A good meal and while listening music, he visualizes for an hour his round against his opponent. He tells us playing the baseline is the best part of his game. The idea is to wear his opponent down, then go for the strike.
Since he is considered Old Dominion’s ‘Perfect Man’, we thought we would ask him his idea of a perfect date.
He answered quickly and in Spanish – translated – “To have a candlelit dinner with a great conversation without interruption.”
Is he single?
“Si!,” he says, flashing us a thumbs up.
