Dusseldorf, Kitzbuhel Results: Confused and Apathetic

Posted by gauloises1 on May 20, 2009


Yeah, I’m confused.

So … the US and France are out because they lost to Sweden and Germany, right? Which makes it a Sweden-Germany Red Group semi.

But in the Blue Group, Serbia are in the semis after winning both their ties … and Italy-Argentina both have one win. So if Argentina beat Russia tomorrow, they’ll be in the semis … right?

Oh god, I just don’t know what’s happening. Anyway, all I know is that Maximo Gonzalez stepped in for Pico to give Argentina a good win over Italy today (with some help from Elf in the doubs), and Philipp Kohlschreiber claimed a very good three-set win over Tsonga.


Fine German engineering.

    I’m going to go ahead and say that the reason we had never heard of this tournament before is that it is f&#$ing confusing.

    I heard that it actually gets pretty crowded- so I guess the locals like it.

    Hope Pico’s wrist thing isn’t serious.

    Do yo think Elf and Fish are looking at each other wistfully and remembering the dubs glory days of last week?

      God, I hope not.

      Elf is never allowed to play with him again. Ever. It freaks me out too much.

      Heh, Pico’s wrist. I mean … what? Yes, I do hope it isn’t serious too …

    hey gaul,
    there are no semis in the WTC format.
    the winners of each group advance directly into the final on saturday.

    may i never annoy it again…
