Friday In Pictures

Posted by gauloises1 on October 24, 2009

I’ve got no energy tonight. Let’s make it snappy. Lots of pictures, light on the words …

alisa kleybanova

francesca schiavone

Big wins for Schiavs and ClayBARNova, as we’re apparently now calling her. Thanks, Eurosport commies.

Bad day for these ladies.

olivier rochus

Scotty from Brothers & Sisters celebrates. As he should. He beat Jarkko Nieminen 61 in the third.

A gratuitous abs flash? For me? Oh Robin, you shouldn’t have.

He beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in straights.

Bendy. Nose Job is rocking slightly longer hair and beat Joachim Johansson to make the semis.
