The Skull Beneath the Skin

Webster saw it, T. S. Eliot saw it, and now Nole sees it, sort of:
Following on from last year’s Zorro mask, Nole continues his tradition of Hallowe’en masks at Bercy … much to the amusement/bemusement/confusement of his opponent Pico. Luckily, he hadn’t disguised himself as someone who had any intention of losing; his play was patchy, but he beat Pico 63 75 – and celebrating by giving his mask to a little kid who immediately put it on. Very cute.
As for Pico, a so-so performance from him. He actually served for the second set, but didn’t look for one moment like he believed he could take it, and so it proved.
So the 2009 season ends for Tandil’s prettiest. But it’s been a good year for him, with some big wins. I hope he can keep it going in 2010.
