D Cup: Fed In The House

Posted by gauloises1 on September 17, 2009

Switzerland can relax! Roger Federer has arrived to join the Davis Cup squad ahead of their forthcoming tie with Italy in Genova at the weekend.




Is it me, or do these photos tell a tragic emotional tale as regards Federinka?

    You, me and the rest of the Swiss team, judging from the last picture, can all see it.

    That last pic is too funny.. Fed looks like an old Jewish man and Stan is bored to tears with it all to the point of nodding off.

    “What? I should miss Davis Cup?”

  4. gauloises1 said

    LOL, naughty and kefuoe.

    I’d join it, but I’m not really good with Jewish cliches. Oy vey, and so forth. I think there’s also kvetching.

  5. naughtyT... said

    yeh and the first pic is worth a caption competition all on its own too.

    Where’s their Swiss Mountain Dog that will save them from avalanches?

    And/or overRogification?

    Stan has about 10 million other things he could be doing. Another great picture. I flove Davis Cup!

  11. Nic said

    Stan’s totally thinking: ‘Right, so you think you can just come crawling back whenever you need an ego boost and we just drop whatever we’re doing? What is this Fed and the Swissettes? I can’t even stand to look at you. I’m tired of you telling the same story ev-er-y time! Where’s my concubine?”

    Switzerland in the Davis Cup = More Chiudinelli pics! Yipieee!

    I wonder if this is possible: If Brazil beats Equador, and Switzerland beats Italy, both teams will be in the 1st round of the World Group. Does that mean there’s a (small) chance the 2 countries are drawn to play each other and the Swiss come here to play (last time the 2 countries played each other was in Switzerland)? I strongly doubt Federer would come, but is there a chance I’ll see this pretty fest: Marcos Daniel vs. Chiudinelli??? I’d SO pay to see this match!

    Did Stan bleach his hair???

  15. irefusetotellyou said

    I think it might just be the lighting, crazyone, because his hair looks fairly normalish in the other pictures.

    Although sometimes I am struck by how highlighty-bleached the front part looks … perhaps it’s just au natural, a la Julien Benneteau …

    P.S: Either that or he’s trying to impress his concubine.

  17. rulin said

    The concubine references are hilarious. I like your caption, Nic. I don’t really believe he would’ve shown up if he’d won USO… coming from a Fed fan.
