Elfish Mysteries Revealed

Posted by gauloises1 on May 17, 2009

So, if you go to Fue Buena here, there’s a brief audio clip of Juan Martin del Potro explaining why exactly he’s chosen to play doubles with Mardy Fish.

According to the lovely people on MTF, Elf says he originally planned to play with Marat Safin (!), but then Marat pulled out. Fish was apparently close to them and offered to play with Elf, who agreed as Fish is a “great friend”.

Basically, what I’m getting from this is that Mardy Fish is a sick, sick stalker who probably poisoned Marat.

Thankfully, they lost today, so here’s hoping this is the last we ever see of Elfish.

In more adorable Elf news, early on in the clip he was asked how he feels being behind the Big Four, and he answered “I’m the best of the bad ones.”

I heart him so majorly. And can he please play with Marat sometime before Marat retires? Because, honestly, that would basically be like one of my sexual fantasies exploded.

    You should know by now to never expect anything from Marat. If anything, that boy is a synonym for deception.

    Awww’d at Mardy is a great friend. So innocent of Elf to say that.

    “best of the bad ones”. Shades of Ferru and his “worst player ever in the top 100”. I’m so on the Elf train now.

    Kinda fun to know that Marat lets men down as well as women.

    I actually enjoyed the Elfish pairing for its oddness.

    Cute comment by him. It seems like the announcers agree because they are always saying how he does not have the tools to hurt the top four guys. Meh- he is still adding to his game. I do feel that his game will always be a good match up for Fed- but he could give the other guys troubles.
