Image is Everything: Saturday Stars

Posted by gauloises1 on May 23, 2009

So, Warsaw, Dusseldorf, Kitzbuhel and Strasbourg all had their finals today.

As I said elsewhere, I know these tournaments don’t get much attention. (Even from me.) The build-up to Roland Garros, the lack of big names and seeds in the finals … But do you think it matters to the winners today, that we snobby tennis fans will be placing mental asterixes next to their wins? Not a bar of it.

So big props to the soft-haired Serbs in Dusseldorf, the qualifier Dulgheru in Warsaw, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in Kitzbuhel, and Aravane Rezai in Strasbourg. Well done indeed.

That said, I didn’t watch any of the matches so just have some pictures.

Now get your asses to Paris. Stat.

Er – except you, Dulgheru. I don’t think you’re in the draw.
