New Haven: Momo! Chucho! Horseface! Ram!

Posted by gauloises1 on August 26, 2009

My new power rangers.

First of all, Momo double-breadsticked Alona Bondarenko. Which makes me smile.

Serious business. Also, can we bring back the red if she’s going to wear that kit? She looked fearsome in that.

Chakvetadze, Wozniacki, Pennetta, Bartoli and Stosur also advanced. But at least Alize managed to take Stosur to three wonky sets.

Baby steps, Alize. Baby steps.

ATP-wise, Chucho definitely scored the upset of the day when he knocked off Robredo. ARGENTINA EXISTE!  He’ll be joined in the next round by one Horseface, who beat Olivier Rochus. Bjorn Phau and Florent Serra also had good wins, taking out Nicolas Almagro and Jeremy Chardy (sadface) respectively. Oh, and Rajeev “I came from nowhere and I’ve not quite gone back there yet” Ram beat Mardy Fish. I sniggered.

    HORRRSEEEEFAAACEEE!

    I spent an embarrassing amount of time yesterday evening looking up pictures/articles/interviews on him.

    Unfortunately I pretty much found nothing.

    HORSEFACE FOILS ME AGAIN!

    Woot for anyone who takes out Fish the Sweaty one.
