And Nobody Died.

Congratulations to Gisela Dulko and David Ferrer, who took home the trophies in Acapulco this weekend.
I have to say, I did not call Gisela standing there with that trophy as she’s been uninspiring in singles recently, but maybe that Australian Open win (and no. 1 ranking) in doubles with Flavia Pennetta, although presumably that’s not the new love that Clijsters was referring to. She beat sixth seed Arantxa Parra-Santonja 63 76(5) in the final.
As for the men’s side, I’m absolutely gutted that I missed David Ferrer’s final against Nicolas Almagro (it was on at like five in the morning!). Almagro was going for the Golden Swing sweep, having already won in Santiago and Buenos Aires, while Ferru was the defending champion and it appears to have been kind of a classic:
If you didn’t watch that, Ferru won 76(4) 67(2) 62, and he was pretty happy about it.
That’s a 500 and a Grand Slam semifinal and it’s still February. Or as I’m now thinking of it, Ferruary.
Anyway, they also looked cute in hats.
